If you’ve ever secretly wondered about the best cat for your zodiac sign, you’re not alone. Many feline fans and horoscope readers have asked themselves the same question. Considering that today is International Cat Day, it’s certainly an appropriate time to ask. Well, thanks to several cat astrology enthusiasts on the internet — including ones at Your Tango, MSN, Upvee, and Dazzling News — you might not need to wonder any longer.
It’s worth noting that much like people, no two cats are exactly alike. So if you already own a beloved cat that doesn’t seem to “match” with your star sign, don’t panic; just embrace the unique cat personality that your feline shares with you. Maybe he or she breaks the mold of what’s usually expected of the breed — or maybe you break from the tradition of what’s typically seen among folks who share your zodiac sign. But if you’re looking to buy a cat, consider this a loose guide of what to expect from some popular breeds… and why one might just be your “purr-fect” match as a pet.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Siamese: Considering how energetic and enthusiastic Aries folks can be, it’s not surprising that they often pair well with Siamese cats. Communicative and known to take a liking to humans, these kitties may be just as excited about you as you are about them.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Ragdoll: Taurus people are known for their strong personality traits — especially stubbornness. It’s a good thing that ragdoll cats are not only beautiful, but also fairly agreeable in terms of temperament. After all, the last thing you want is to get into a (literal) catfight with your kitty!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Turkish Van: Geminis love to have fun and make new friends, so it’s no wonder why such a playful and sociable cat like a Turkish van would take a particular liking to a Gemini owner.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Maine Coon: Loyal and sensitive, these fluff balls would warm any Cancer’s heart. Unlike some other cat breeds, the affection would likely be returned: these felines are known for getting especially attached to the people they adore.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Abyssinian: The Abyssinian cat has a habit for seeking all sorts of attention and admiration. Considering the confidence and ambition of Leos, there’s little question in anyone’s mind that this cat-human combo would be a truly show-stopping pair.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Sphynx: So many Virgo people out there love having everything in order as much as possible. With a sphynx, you wouldn’t have to worry about a hair being out of place — because these bare kitties don’t have any!
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Tuxedo Cat: Several Libra folks out there enjoy taking their time to make decisions. But why wait on making this choice when the super-smart and social tuxedo cats are the full package? The elegant fur coat certainly doesn’t hurt.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Russian Blue: Scorpios have a reputation for being bold, assertive, and natural-born leaders. Guess what? So do Russian blue cats. Let’s just hope you can keep up with them!
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Bengal: Lots of Sagittarius people are always looking for the next adventure around the corner. That’s why these fun and humorous felines will add to your next journey, wherever that may be. Another bonus point? They love walking.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Korat: Even though Korat kitties are a relatively quiet crew in terms of cat breeds, they do tend to form strong family bonds. Considering how closely intertwined many Capricorns are with their families, this will likely strike a chord with them.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Persian: Several Aquarius folks tend to be pretty free-spirited and down-to-earth, which bodes well with a Persian kitty’s personality. Unlike some other cats, this one isn’t constantly in need of your attention all the time.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Tortoiseshell: Pisces people are known for being both deeply emotional and extremely creative. Not only do tortoiseshell cats look gorgeous and artistic, they can also help perk you up whenever you feel down in the dumps. Who could frown looking at that face?
