I have a 1 1/2 year old female golden.  She is really sweet.  Last October she killed two of my neighbors turkeys and I thought, well, she a bird dog, and a hunter.  This week she ate 2-3 kittens that had the misfortune to be born under the house.  I got the last one from her and she was more than determined to eat it.  I am really disturbed by this.  Is this typical golden behavior?  I need some advice and also to know if this is normal.

She is a dog-the natural sworn enemy of cats. My dogs would do the same thing. It is not unnatural but now that she has tasted them, you are going to have to keep the kitten away from her until it can defend itself.

Hello Ginger Mae, I am a girl who also has a puppy. He is 6months old, and golden retriever. He is very hyper active, but use to have a need for kitties. All we did was buy stuffed animals, like "his brother" that is what we call it. It's a stuffed golden retriever, he attacks it constantly! When I first brought my dog into my family, I have 2 cats. First thing I did was let them run around themselves. He didn't notice the cats, but my one cat noticed him. She tried to attack my puppy, and my puppy{Jesse} grew fond of attacking her. 4 weeks in, I sat my dog and cat in front of eachother, I holding Jesse and my little brother holding my cat. We let them inch forward, little by little. Once they started attacking eachother we tapped them on the nose. Soon, they would just hit eachother, and now they will just tap eacother other. Good Work To My Team:D I hoope everything works out for you:D best of luck!
