We had a collie and she had clumps of matted hair behind her ears. I used to believe that when I squeezed the clumps it made a light come on in her mouth.
Looking back at it, the belief that dogs eat cats is a pretty funny idea. I used to believe it myself.
i used to think that when someone asked someone else if they were a dog person or a cat person they meant:
when u die will you become a cat or a dog?
My sister used to believe that dried white dog poo was a natural type of chalk.
Childhood beliefs are a funny thing. I had so many funny childhood beliefs that only a few can be mentioned here. As a small child, I used to believe that dogs and cats got married.
I used to be have a cat called 'Dusky' that would always come into my bed and annoy me by trying to rub against my face while I was trying to sleep. I used to hate that cat so much I ended up having nightmares about it and had really bad sleeps because of it. In my dreams I believed it was a demon cat that was trying to kill me by lack of sleep.
I once believed, for about a day after hearing the name, that heins 57 meant the dog was 57 different breeds of dog
I visited my grandparents house for a few days by myself when I was young. My unkle lived with them they had three cats between them a black one (Roo) a gray one (phido) and a calico (AC-DC) anyway, I thought that my relatives had the ability to turn into their cats. I thought my grandma turned into the black one. My grandpa turned into the gray one. And my unkle turned into the calico. I thought that when I got older I would get a cat of my own that I could turn into. I'd seen the cats and the people in the same room and I knew it wasn't reality but I still thought it would be neat if it were true and I remember keeping secrets from the cats as though they were the relatives.
I used to believe that my cat could communicate with me by mind, and I would have conversations with her!
i used to believe that if you slept with cats that they would eat your soul and you would die!!
I remember the first time I saw a manx cat and I thought it's tale had been cut off. My grandma tried to tell me otherwise, but I wouldn't believe her.
When I was little I used to belive that dogs pooped out their tales...
When I was about 4, I was convinced that all dogs were male & all cats were female.
when i was little, i used to think of all the long, curly haired/ tiny dogs as guys, and the big dogs as boys. It made seeing alotta dogs in public kinda akward
When I was very young I used to believe all dogs were boys and all cats were girls.
i used to belive that my dogs understood me when i spoke to them
I used to think that my female cat wanted to be a human man. I used to say that she had 'a mannish look about her'. I have no idea why.
When I used to walk to school I imagined that if I wished hard enough I could transform into a german sheperd and back into a human again. That I could escape school and run to people's back doorsteps where I would beg for scraps of food and prowl the wood for other dog friends. Then at the end of the day I would walk back home, imagining myself as a dog until I got onto my street.
Whenever my older siblings wanted me to get out of their rooms and I refused, they would say mom got a puppy and it's in the kitchen. If I still didn't beleive them they would say at every little noise, "Hear it running around?", or "It's begging you to go play with it". I beleived them very time!
My grandfather told me that if a cat wasn't pure breed, the tail would fall of if you lifted the cat after it... Guess who paniced when he lifted the cat next-door...I knew that he was a many-mixed cat!!!
But it came came to an happy end, even though I was pretty upset with my grandfather for some hours ;)
