cats and dogsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When I was younger, I knew how male cats and dogs were neutered. However, I couldn't think of how they spayed female cats and dogs.
Being a girl myself, I knew girls had vaginas and boobs, I though female animals had them too, I knew that they couldn't cut off someones vagina, so I though that when a female animal was spayed, they just cut off its boobs.
I wondered what boobs had to do with reproduction..but it made more sense to me at the time.
When I was very little, my parents told me that cats didn't like water. I thought that this meant they didn't even drink water. So I was surprised when I saw Drummer, our cat at the time, drinking some water from his food/water dish.
My younger brothers and sister used to believe that dogs ate cats and they were mortal enimies of each other. (at least i finaly explained to them that dogs did not eat cats and that they could be the best of friends).
I used to believe that getting a female dog spayed didn't work- the male dog had to be neutered too. Every time my dog acted the teeniest bit odd, I made her lay down because I thought she was having puppies.
When I was about 3 I had this dream that dogs could talk. So one day I was visiting my extended family on my mother's side (some of them have dogs) and I tried to talk to them, but was wondering why the dogs weren't talking. When I was about 6 my younger sister (2 years younger) convinced me that eating dog food could turn you into a dog. I wanted to be a dog so I ate some of my grandma's dog's dog food. I'm 14 now and I still laugh about it today,
I looked on a website about cats and it said that a female cat who wasn't nursing or pregnant was called a "molly" (one who was was a "queen").
So when somebody on Yahoo Answers was asking if molly could be smoked, I thought they were wondering if they could smoke a cat and wondered how that was possible.
I thought that the saying about cats having nine lives was literally true. I have a weird memory of going outside as a kid and seeing one of our cats choking on something. When I showed concern, my dad just said after he chokes to death he will come back to life and be good as new. I'm pretty sure he was really just choking up a hairball or something but I misheard it and, due to my belief, didn' think to question it.
When I was little, and even now, I believed that I had to watch my cats when I brought them home to see if they were good or evil. I was afraid they might try to kill me or eat me at night if I went to sleep so I could never go to sleep when I brought them home on the first night.
i used to think that alsation dogs were called 'alanbunseries'....until i was about 20. They're not are they?
I used to tell my lads, when they were younger, that 'cats eyes' were in fact cats set into the road to aid drivers. These cats were mounted on springs that retracted when you ran over them. They still believe me!
When I was a kid, my mom used to tell me that dogs & cats ate grass because they were bored. Like so many other things she told me, I believed her until I was an adult and found out other wise.
When i was younger i had a cat and a dog, and i thought that if i locked them in a room toghether for 5 years, when i came back they would have mutated into a weird cat-dog monster. I once kept them in the attic for a whole week, beforre my parents found them and grounded me !
I used to think that all cats were girls and all dogs were boys.
My cat acts like she's bipolar. One moment she's nice and the next she'll attack out of nowhere. So when I was little, I didn't think both sides of her personality could possibly be the same cat so I figgured we had 2 cats, that looked exactly the the same, and while one was out wondering the house, the other was hiding in the basment, so we could never see them both at the same time.
When I was about five years old I believed that Puppies were boys and kittens were girls and that they grew up, got married and had puppies and kittens!
When I learnt that it was possible to be allergic to cats, I thought some cats were allergic to themselves. When I learnt that wasn't true, I thought it was impossible for a cat to have any allergies at all.
That cats were slaves reincarnated.(Because slaves had to work so hard and cats are sleepy and playing all the time)
I believed when my granmother said during a big storm that if I slept with my pet dog or cat, the thunder could shoot me in my bed.
Because the animal fur attracted the electricity.
My brother used to believe that our dog could talk and only I could understand what our dog was saying. For hours, I would make stuff of what our dog was saying. My brother would listen to every word. My mum was grateful I got him of her hands for an hour or two!
When i was a kid, my lawn was all bumpy andi thought they were kittens under the grass so i used to avoid it at all cost.
