Greyhounds and Cats?

As a greyhound owner you've probably come across "What great dogs, but how are they with cats." We've all heard it or some variation. It's heard at Meet & Greets, special functions and events or just a walk around the neighborhood. I will be the first to tell you, all greys are not good around cats or small creatures. Is there a percentage who are? Certainly, what that percentage is I'm not sure. I think it's fair to say that more are cat friendly than not. If I were to put a number on it I'd say 80% plus. It's not a scientific number just a guesstimate.

To try and help everyone out, especially the M & G volunteers, we asked to have you send in photos of your cats and greys together. The following video is a collection of those photos. The next time somebody brings up the question, send them over to the blog to have a look for themselves.

A big thanks to all those who sent in their photos.

Special Gals.... Sunshine and Sadie and their mom, Jody!

VAGA is very proud of Sunshine and Sadie. They are both retired racers ( half sisters too) that are bringing so much happiness to many people. Their mommy, Jody, is a nursing home administrator. Many days Jody is able to take Sunshine & Sadie to work with her. The greyhound gals are making new friends all the time. They are favorites with the residents and the staff too. Sunshine and Sadie are very loving and gentle girls who have tons of love to share with all their new friends. We thank Jody for giving these two sweet greyhounds a forever home and for sharing with us all these beautiful pictures.
