The usual dog/cat sex thing and also the reason you couldn't understand animals was because they where speaking a different lanuage sort of like spanish or something

I used to believe I could communicate with dogs and cats in their languages. I still do. My husband even calls me Doctor Dolittle.

When I was little I asked my dad one day why bulldogs faces were flat. He said it was because it was sitting in front of a window and saw a cat running outside. It tried to chase after it, but ran into the window, smashing it's face. And that was what I believed for the longest time.

I used to believe that cats climbed chimneys (only white or black cats). In Baltimore, people put ceramic cats on the outside of their houses as decorations, usually climbing a brick chimney. We weren't allowed to have pets, so my father would tell me what a bad pet a cat would make because they were always climbing up the house (he thought this would make them undesirable to me).

Once I was told that cats see humans as just more cats. I still have no idea what that meant, but it tricked my mind into thinking that from a cat's-eye view, humans were all giant cats wearing clothes and walking upright. Then I started believing for some reason that if humans WERE cats, all the men and boys would have brown fur and green eyes, and all the women and girls would have white fur and blue eyes. Dunno where THAT came from.

When I was little we lived on a farm, and there were a lot of wild cats. My sister told me that the reason the cats never came near people was because I was evil, and they could sense that. She told me that all that cats had been friendly before I was born.

I used to believe...thanks to my older sister...that dogs could talk, but they just didn't talk to me, cause they didn't like me.

I had a pet cat named Pippy, we got him when I was a kitten, and I remember I used to think that he would grow up into an adult, and the two of us would get married. I imagined him all dressed up and standing on two feet like Puss 'n Boots. I guess I thought his walking on four legs was similar to babies crawling.

My older brother told me when I was a child that if a dog sleeps with his legs straight that he was dead (stiff I suppose). Even though now I'm an adult and know how preposterous that is, I still gasp with fear if I see a dog napping straight-legged.

I knew I could talk with the cats and dogs and that they would talk with me. One day I had walked home from school and was waiting on the porch with a puppy dog for my Mom to get home to let me in when my sister got home, she said " where did this dog come from?" And I replied that Duke followed me home, and my sister said how do you know his name -- and I said he told me!

I was once convinced that I had seen a nature program on TV that stated that cats were psychic. I couldn't understand why, when I brought this up in class one day, the teacher didn't already know this...Regardless, I would think thoughts to my cat all the time to get her to come play with me and to tell her how much I loved her. Still do, a little bit...

Yep. You guessed it. As with almost everyone here, I used to believe that dogs were boys and cats were girls.

Bizarrely, I think that Tom and Jerry episodes with the bulldog in had something to do with it...

I expect there's a Clinical Psychologist out there right now just dreaming of the breakthrough reading this site could offer :-D
