When I was a child, I used to believe when we barked and thought about something we could communicate with dogs.
When i was little i was so scared of cats, because i taught the turned in to tigers if you saw them.
I used to believe I could communicate with dogs and cats in their languages. I still do. My husband even calls me Doctor Dolittle.
I used to believe that the expression "The room was literally not big enough to swing a cat" referred to the swinging of an actual live cat by the tail, at arms length, completely around one's body. I have come to understand, with some disapointment, that the "cat" is actually a "cat-o-nine tails" -- a type of whip used for dicipline aboard ships, whose quarters were often insufficient to swing the device with the sought after level of vigor.
i always belived that my dogs were actually people inside a dog costume... so i wouldnt do anything bad around them... i wouldnt even change or go to the bathroom around them!!!
I used to think that my dog was the "BOOGIE MONSER" because he would always go and sleep under my bed!
When we were little our parents got us a dog, a big German Shepherd. It was kinda mean and ended up biting our babysitter, so my mom took it back to the pound. When she got home she told us a police officer came into the pound looking for a police dog, and he adopted Pepper. I actually believed this until I was age 15 when I finally realized she was just trying to make us feel better!
My mum would always talk to our cats and ask them if they wanted food, then she would give them some and they'd eat it. I thought that when you were an adult you could actually understand animals and they would talk to you like the ones in movies.
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.
I used to believe that you could just choose what gender your dog or cat was - like if you said it was a boy, it was male, and if you said it was a girl, it was female.
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.
I read a story about a girl who loved butterflies, then she disappeared and it was implied that she turned into one.
My favourite animal was cats, and I was worried I was gonna turn into a cat.
For some reason, when I was eight, I had the ludicrous idea that it was impolite to say, "Oh dear" within the vicinity of a cat because I thought it would make the cat sad.
I guess I thought cats were very sensitive and would mistakenly think you were saying, "Oh dear" about them or something.
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
