Oh dear, the oldsters didn't get it did they. Usually, Huskies are cat killers but they are elderly and up against a ME Coon. Not a fair fight. Hopefully, your home will reach equilibrium among the species. Every once in a while, my Coon has to reiterate his position to the GSDs.

It happens.
Just let them work it out.
I find that aniamls usually have a more evolved sense of what it takes to harmonize than most people I know.

Poor old Huskies, but I guess that's what it will take. Hopefully, it will all work out. I second Meredith's comment. Animals tend to work out things fairly easily. Although a little blood might be shed, it's usually harsh, honest, and over quickly - at least in my experience.

My blue heeler developed a patch of scar tissue above her nose as a pup from having to learn that lesson over and over... and over again. In the end, she and the cat were the best of friends. And she always knew who was the boss. ; )

Haha! Go George and Lilly! That said, my 6 cats are still trying to figure out what's up with the border collie we acquired two weeks ago. He loves to play with cats and they don't share that love yet, having lived with an old dog for so long.

My veterinarian's Aussie shepherd came for a visit today. Even though it lives with two cats, she found my cat fascinating. Tried to stare it down like it was sheep! Hope the huskies learned their lesson.

Please be careful concerning the dogs' eyes. We had a beagle mix lose sight in one eye after a neighbor's cat scratched him. We didn't notice until he started pawing the eye and then realized there was an infection. The vet managed to save the actual eye, but the dog was never able to see again out of it because the damage was too deep.

Hopefully they all work it out soon.

Uh ohh. Jazz and Annie are learning lessons about big cats. In a little while, they will probably be sleeping together.

hopefully you dogs learn alot fast than mine porkchop has been clawed and bit so many times and he still doesn't understand why the cat doesn't want to be his friend

aww...precisely why I don't bring another cat into my place yet, b/c my bipolar kitty would tear it a new one!

Ha! I have two cats and two German Shepherds (each at over 100 lbs). The cats own the dogs... Both of em learned as pups to respect the claw. When the cats want to sleep on the dog bed, they will actually move! My younger cat and dog actually play together, it's the cutest friggin thing I've ever seen!

not fair to the huskies,they don't understand why the cats are there and there function if they have one. they would have never let a stray animal in your house and they have a bit of a prob with this scenario. Maybe they will adjust, maybe not-cats can defend themselves until the huskies decide to end the fight-good luck

i've had a maine coon for years...came as a stray and stayed...a great lap cat but capable of turning into "cobra kitty" when he's irked with no warning...i think that's their secret to living such long lives...he's as mellow as can be but he clearly runs the house...

"Usually, Huskies are cat killers" Really an unfair and rather blanket, and also untrue, statement. Huskies are not "usually" cat killers. They do have a stronger predatory urge than some, say Golden Retrievers, for example, but I know literally HUNDREDS of huskies,including all of the ones I have owned, who have NEVER killed a cat. Many, many mushers have both huskies AND cats, coexisting peacefully, as do I. Don't make such sweeping assumptions, and by doing so, promote stereotypes.

Jazz and Annie are cutting George a wide berth. Lilly hasn't been seen much!

I have 3 giant dogs (Husky, German Shepherd, Saint Bernard!) and 1 tiny kitty. Guess who rules the house? The kitty! If he's in a doorframe, the dogs will not pass and look at me as if to say, "please move that mean old puddy cat so we can go into that room." Too funny!

Sorry Dog Hair in My Coffee. You're right that was a bit of a generalization as not all Huskies re killers. The northern breeds such as Huskies usually have a much higher prey drive than most other breeds. Those individuals who have the high prey drive usually use their mouths to capture the prey and a quick shake which kills the prey be it a cat, rat or small dog. It isn't that they choose to kill but their innate behaviors cause it to happen.

guess its somewhat the dog=had a beautiful border collie that was the most agressive animal i have ever seen to any critter that came around the farm-he took on skunks, porcupines, mice, rats, rabbits, snakes-and even chased a bear out of our woods one night-[fool] had no fear of anthing- if he could catch it the fight was on-used a lot of peroxide cleaning his cuts up-he loved kids and if you were our friend he loved you too. i loved him more then any i've ever had-faithful friend

'usually' indicates not all are...not really a blanket statement. It's good to be aware of breed tendancies.

I'm of the same cloth as huskies. I go out of my way to avoid cats, never a good experience to be had in my travels to cat homes...claws and teeth oh my!

Your felines are pretty, but ill leave owning one up to you cat people! Hope the dogs are ok.

It may take a while, but based on my experience with huskies, I suspect they will all actually become tolerant of each other and perhaps even friendly. Of course, when they start working together to get things you may have a little trouble.
