I work 10 hour days, usually 4 days a week, sometimes 5. I am single with no one that would be capable of walking a dog during that time. I have a small apartment and a cat that has been dog-friendly in the past (or at least she ignores the dogs). I'd like to get a dog that would be able to roam the apartment during that time. I've heard that the retired racing Greyhounds are couch potatoes. Is a greyhound generally friendly with cats?
Some individual greyhounds will ignore cats. If the cat makes a sudden move, or the dog is looking at him and the cat spooks for some reason, the dog will come off of the couch, chase and kill the cat. I assume this is not what you want to happen to your cat, so I do not recommend a greyhound as a pet for a household with cats.
Maltese, one of the dogs on this list, are excellent with cats.
