Today my 17 year old cat was killed by our two dogs and I am totally heartbroken. The cat and dog really didn't have much contact with each other, but I never thought this would happen. Now my boyfriend wants to get rid of the dogs because he says they are vicious. They have never been that way with people. We have only had the dogs for about a year, and they are now 1 years old. (Old Enghlish Bulldogges) :(

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. It must be absolutely devastating.

Regarding the dogs... all I can say is that when anyone brings dogs and cats into the same household, they are taking a risk. Your dogs did what was natural to them, as natural as barking or peeing at a tree. I can however assure you that this has absolutely NO implications on their likelihood to harm a human. Prey drive has nothing to do with human aggression WHATSOEVER. I strongly urge you to reconsider rehoming the dogs... they may like to chase small animals as the large majority of their species does, but that doesn't indicate at all that they are vicious.
