You might check your horoscope weekly, but did you know that many astrologers also believe that animals have star signs, too? Leslie Jenkins, author of Astral Cats, certainly believes cats have signs. Here's what he can tell you about your cat's purrsonality, based on when it was born.
The Aries cat says: I am fearless and a true warrior. I am athletic, and I love the outdoors. Watch me climb to the top of the tree and you’re never going to catch me. I am protective, outgoing, fun, and always ready for action. I like to run and be free. The Gemini cat says: I am a chatterbox, so when I meow, please do not ignore me. I am a natural teacher, and I will teach my baby kittens to play, to be clean, and to be imaginative. I like it when you read me stories and I love your voice because communication is so important to me.
The Scorpio cat says: I am secretive and cunning. I enjoy hiding in cupboards and dressers, or under beds, and you will never find me. I am like a detective who's looking for clues. You will never fool me and I will pounce when you least expect it if you cross me. I will always get even. A Taurus cat’s gemstone is an emerald, so look out when you see it gazing at your jewelry. They also love flowers, especially roses.
If you have a Libra cat, treat it with respect because this is a real aristocrat. Their gemstone is jade, and you will notice they're fascinated by beautiful ornaments and adores perfume. If you have a cat born under the sign of Capricorn, it will represent independence, ambition, control, and discipline. If you should see your cat looking at your accounts, private documents, or letters, then you almost certainly have a Capricorn cat.
A Leo owner would probably get do well with a protective cat who will guard you forever and is brave like a lion. Be prepared though, in case fur flies sometimes! Owners born under the sign of Cancer are often homebodies, so they need a cat who is not interested in straying, is happy to be with you and your family, and will meditate while looking at the water. In the winter, this cat will love sit on your lap by the fire, happy to be reassured and stroked.
Jenkins' book also describes the best type of cat for the owner’s sun sign, which is particularly useful if you do not know when your cat was born. This can happen for example with rescued cats.
