cats and dogsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
I used to think that all cats were female and all dogs were male and that the cat would have litters of kittens and puppies.
When I was little, I used to think that cats could understand humans if we spoke to them in their native language: Italian. This was because we had on display an heirloom that was an Italian proverb plaque with a picture of a cat on it. I didn't know what it said, but I would still read it to my cat over and over and felt proud that he could finally understand me. What did it actually say? "When the cat's away, the mice will play."
I believes that dogs can talk like people.
I used to believe that a shitzu was called a snickerdoodle and a labradoodle was a cross between a labrador and a snickerdoodle.
i use to believe that cats really had nine lives...
I once thought that all dogs were yellow, brown, or black, (all with floppy ears and red collars of course) and all cats were orange or black.
I used to believe that my cat Oliver used to be an alien from outer space because his left eye was green, and his right eye was blue!
I belived that all cats were girls and dogs were boys. Cats are more girly maybe?
When I was a kid, I had a cat who ended up turning rabid. My parents insisted they take it to a "farm" to live happily in the open planes. I believed them until I was my mid-teens, then was devastated to learn what really happened.
I used to believe that all cats were dogs and all dogs were boys. Imagine my surprise when I found out that my neighbors dog was a girl.
We thought dogs were boys and cats were girls.
When I was younger I always wanted to pick my cat up but she was always too fast and got away before I could grab her. I thought that if a stayed really still for a few minutes she would think I was a statue and I would be able grab her before she could get away. I remember doing this right up until I was about 10...oh dear.
I used to believe that that people were saying "kitty glitter" instead of "kitty litter". So I bugged my dad for months until he finally agreed to get one, as long as I was the one who dealt with the (g)litterbox. I wholeheartedly agreed and we finally got the cat. Needless to say I was pretty disappointed when i found out that cats did not actually come with a box of glitter to play with......
when i was little i thought my cat would turn into a lion when he got older.
When I was younger I thought all cats were girls and that dogs were boys. I have no idea why
I always thought dogs never slept since we did not have a pet dog and every dog I encountered at a friends was always awake. When we finally got a dog when I was 13 and saw it napping for the first time I was distraught and thought he had died. My mom then explained he was asleep.
when i was around 8, i asked my grandma how old her cat was, and she said around 16 years old. At this point in my life i thought that my grandmas cat had taken on the soul of a 16 year-old girl and was a very angsty cat, which explained why it didnt like me
I used to always think all cats were girls and all dogs were boys...didn't everyone?
When I was little, I used to believe that corgis (a breed of very short-legged dogs) were made by rolling a puppy inside of a carpet so that it's legs wouldn't grow, and then let out as adults.
I also thought that boxers and rotweillers and other dogs like that were just born without a tail.
It's odd how things like that are completely normal and not a bit disturbing in a little kid's mind.
I used to have this dog and my parents never got him neutered. So when i was little, I believe his ball sack is where his poop was kept until more poop came, and he'd poop out the previous poop, and the new poop would be kept in his ball sack, and so on.
