19 Dog Breeds That Shouldn’t Live With Cats
2. Alaskan Malamute
The Alaskan malamute is a beautiful sled dog who, unfortunately, also has a strong prey drive and could easily perceive your cat as his next victim.
If they are introduced to your furry feline from an early age, chances are the Alaskan malamute will simply adore them and consider the cat their best friend. Of course, the breed needs to meet the cat when they are still pups, and the best age would be between two and six months.
On the other hand, if the two animals aren’t raised together, the malamute may exhibit violent behavior, hunt and kill the cat (the same applies to other small pets, such as squirrels and mice).
On the positive side, some malamutes think of cats as their pack mates, and will protect them to death. In fact, there have been cases where malamutes have raised kittens as if they were their own pups. If you want your furry pets to get along, it would be best to adopt the cat first, and then bring home an Alaskan malamute pup.
