I used to believe that the expression "The room was literally not big enough to swing a cat" referred to the swinging of an actual live cat by the tail, at arms length, completely around one's body. I have come to understand, with some disapointment, that the "cat" is actually a "cat-o-nine tails" -- a type of whip used for dicipline aboard ships, whose quarters were often insufficient to swing the device with the sought after level of vigor.

I used to strongly believe that if a person hit their dog in anger the place where the dog had been hit would later turn into a tumor.

My son used to call Dalmatians - at the age of thirty-three still does call them, in fact - Raisin Dogs. It was only recently that I asked him why: he had believed that they were made of flour, with raisins stuck in them.

We had this cat that would roam our neighborhood. I was told its name was "Stitches." For some reason I got it in my head that if you even touched Stitches, you would "get stitches." I don't think I even really knew what "stitches" were. I just knew they hurt. :-)

When I was five, I decided that cats needed haircuts just like people. I grabbed some scissors, crawled under the dining room table, and cut all of my cat's whiskers off. I wasn't allowed to used scissors for two months.

In England we call those things in the middle and side of the road that light up at night when yout car headlights hit them "cats eyes".I asked my father how they were made and he told me that all the pussy cats in the world leave their eyes in the road to help us find our way home at night and then go and sleep behind bushes until morning.I believed that for a long , long time!

When I was around four to six years old, I thought that if you were petting an animal and didn't wash your hands before you ate something, you'd turn into that animal. I was always too scared to test this though, because I wasn't quite sure I wanted to spend the rest of my life as a cat or a dog...

I use to think that cats only got spayed and dogs only got neutered.
Both me and my brother didn't realize that neuter meant castration till we had our dog fixed. Bit of shock for us when he got home from the vet.... well not as big of a shock as it was for the dog though.

I used to think that my cats knew much more than humans do--regarding the meaning of life. I always thought they saw and talked to God...and knew what Heaven looked like.

I used to believe that if you pulled an animals tail (dog or cat) it's eyes would pop out. My gram told me that to keep me from pulling on her kitties tail.

As a kid I was always very impressed with people in Quebec who had such well trained dogs. After all, it has to be doubly difficult to teach a dog to obey commands in a foreign language such as French. I was also a bit jealous that the dogs understood more French than I did. (I was about 11 when I figured that one out.)
