I use to believe if you didn't pay attention to a cat it would eat you when you were sleeping.
When I was about five years old I had a small plastic jack russel terrier with a green collar on(I still have it lol)And our neighbors had a jack russel totally identical green collar and all! And I only saw him when we left to go somewhere or when we came back from where ever we went(they were our nearest neighbors and since we live in a rural area they were about a quarter of a mile away)And I always thought that my plastic dog and their real dog were the same dog!I thought that when we went somewhere he became real and rushed over to their house and sat and waited for us.I was scared to death of my toy dog and when ever I went to bed I would just stare at him sitting on the bookshelf with my other toy dogs(I had alot more than one lol)terrified.And one morning when I woke up he was sitting on the night stand staring at me(I didn't know it at the time but my mom knew how dreadfully afraid I was of the thing and she put him there for mean-ness)I immediately started sobbing and ran to mom she told me that she put him there and I could have killed her.Then she said"Go and get him and I'll show you that rufus(my plastic dog) and sparky(neighbor's real dog) are not the same dog!".So I went and got him and my mom drove me up to the neighbor's house and their dog was sitting in his kennel and my plastic dog was still in my hands.I'm 12 now and still have that toy dog some where in my closet lol.
Becuase of Lady and the Tramp(The movie) I thought all little dogs were femals and big dogs were males.
Thank god to animal planet for setting me straight
My mom told me whiskers helped cats keep their balance when I asked what they were for. Due to this, I thought if I ever cut my cat's whiskers off or even accidentally plucked one out, they would go around bumping into stuff and be mad at me forever.
I used to believe all dogs were boys and all cats were girls.
When I was a child I was smarter then my parents, so my parents were embarrassed because I knew much they didn't and they stopped telling me things. So, until the age of about eight I thought that the dogs were the boys and the cats were the girls.
When I was a child, I used to believe when we barked and thought about something we could communicate with dogs.
I believed that cats only lived for a very short time, usually no more then 6 months. I was astounded to find out much later in life that my friend had 2 cats & one was 10 years old and the other nearly 14! My sister and I were always bringing home stray cats & pleading with our parents to keep them. Guess our parents thought it was easier to go along with us at first & then when our initial excitement waned, dad somehow found a new home for them. I think that I believed they ran away to die.
I thought that my dog was a killer dog that was undercover and that he was like a spy or something
When I saw "The Lion King" when I was a kid, I noticed that when Mufasa died during the wildebeast stampede, his whiskars were bent. They weren't straight. I thought that if a cat or dog's whiskars were bent, they would die! After that, any time I played with a cat, I tried to bend it's whiskars!
When my sisters and I were younger we insisted on getting a dog. However the novelty soon wore off and we weren't prepared to walk it or look after it anymore (like many other children, I assume!). So one day upon returning home from school, the dog was missing. My Dad told us that "Major" (the dog) had been recruited by the army as it's mascot and was crrently in training at an army barracks, far away.......... Only a few years ago did he confess, he had actually given him away to a friend of his who lived in the countryside.
I used to think that cats had sticky stuff on their tongue so they could lap up their milk easier, or so my sister told me!
when i was little i asked my mom what it meant when someone said they were gonna get their dog fixed. She said, "It means the vet cuts off a special part of their pee-pee so they can't make babies." Naturally I thought that the penis of a male animal was just one big thing, with no "special parts". I thought about this for a couple days, and eventually asked my mom, "How do the kitties and doggies pee after their fixed!" She soon explained to me that there were certain parts. lol
Years ago, before my grandparent's dog, Rufus, was neutered, he was pretty frisky. One day, when my sister was about ten years old, she was playing with Rufus when he all of a sudden started getting "jiggy" with her leg. Since she didn't know that facts of life, she just told Dad "Daddy, Rufus wants to rumba!"
i used to believe that my pet cats actually had nine lives, because everytime one was lost or died, my mother would bring another back to me, exactly like the earlier one. Instead, when i got older, i found out that was a lie, because one day my mother brung one of the opposite sex, and then she finally told me the cats she'd bring me, were only different replacements she'd buy only to keep me from crying from the lost one.
I used to believe that dogs' tongues were made from ham, so if the dog was hot, i'd sit there trying to bite it for hours, timing my rhythm. I stopped believing this when I managed to catch it arround 7 years old. It didn't taste like ham, which I way very disappointed about.
when i was little, i thought that Tom and Jerry is one name Tomanjerry and i actually believed that that's the mouse name cause he always wins the battles :D
When I was little I believed that all cats were female and all dogs were male.
When we first got our cat, he was a claw and tooth ninja. I was also seven years old and going through the "pants are unnecessary" phase. So my mum tried to get me to wear pants by calling them "cat protectors", but I was worried that they'd make him run away.
In my childhood I used to think that cats were mystical animals and luckily I often had cats as pets but they used to leave after a few months at that time I used to think that luck would also go away but I did not usually think that cats would return It was a lot of fun to have that kind of pet because they are so independent
