Gusto and Mariah's Embark Breed Results:


In general, Gusto and Mariah should not go to a home with cats.

Particularly Gusto has shown some scary aggression toward our cats when guarding food or when he has been startled by them. Most of the time, he ignores them. Mariah is very interested in cats and loves to chase them. 

For very particular situations, I would be willing to rehome them in a household with a cat(s), however this would require some serious consideration- please do reach out if you think you have a cat and household situation which might be okay.
