cats and dogsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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.
My cousin used to believe that a beagle was a type of a bird(from getting it mixed up with eagle)
He would read the Peanuts comic strips, especially the ones with the beagle scouts, which are actually a group of birds led by Snoopy. He had no idea what a beagle was, so he guessed that the "beagle" in Beagle Scouts was referring to Woodstock and the other birds, until he asked his mom "What type of dog is Snoopy supposed to be? I know that Woodstock is a beagle but what about Snoopy?" and he got laughed at and she explained the whole thing to him.
When I was younger, I used to think my dog was a spy and he tolded all my secrets to my mom.
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 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.
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.
When I was little, I used to think that cats and dogs thought in English???
Until age eleven, I thought that all baby poodles were pink and fluffy, and that when they got older, they turned white and 'curly'.
