When it comes to having a pet, you’ll want a companion that fits your temperament and lifestyle. Are you an on-the-go Aries or a travel-loving Sagittarius? Perhaps you’re a homebody Cancer or a luxury-loving Taurus. No matter what your Sun sign is, if you’re looking for the perfect pet, then let this guide to your best pet by zodiac sign help you choose the cosmic companion that’s perfect for you. So let’s see what pet choice suits your zodiac sign.
A big dog to join you on workouts suits you fine; go for run. But if you’re too busy working, running from meeting to meeting, a pet who doesn’t need much attention while you’re away would also fit the bill—try a peaceful fish tank to help you chill out after a hectic day.
Peaceful, cuddly, relaxed—that’s the type of pet you need, Taurus. A big old Golden Retriever to hang out and watch movies with or a low-maintenance kitty cat you can chat with while doing the laundry. Hyper, attention-seeking creatures or pets of the un-cuddly kind are not for you. Think warm and fuzzy.
You’re constantly on the move; you need a pet that’s portable. Slip a pair of Pomeranians into your bag and you’ve got instant travel companions. Or how about something that’s as smart and interactive as you are, like a bird you can teach to talk and/or do tricks. A parrot or a cockatiel are perfect for you.
As the sign of home and family, you’d do well with a big, lovable yet protective dog like a Shepherd or Retriever who would give you a feeling of peace knowing he’s watching over everyone. You can pamper him along with the rest of the family. Or perhaps a fish tank would appeal to your water-loving side, but remember, you can’t hug a fish.
When it comes to anything—even pets—you want the best. Your pet preference would be something unique that no one else has. So if they’re out of unicorns at the pet store, how about a horse that’s related to Secretariat. If the budget won’t allow for such an extravagance, there’s always your fellow feline the cat. Of course you’ll have to give her a name that is as unique and memorable as you are.
You probably don’t care whether you have a pet or not, but if you feel so inclined you’ll make sure your pet isn’t high-maintenance or high-mess. An aquarium full of fish will help soothe you in high-strung moments. If you’re thinking of a dog or cat, why not open your earthy heart to a rescue? You’ll become best friends in no time.
Your ideal pet needs to match your desire for an environment with flair, beauty as well as peace and harmony. A gorgeous Persian cat will make the ultimate statement of style, but if you’re looking for a slightly less hair-strewn option, how about an exotic bird with fabulously colored feathers?
You’d love a pet that’s intriguing and perhaps even intimidating to others such as a snake or lizard or perhaps a tarantula—you love unnerving people. Aside from your mysterious and somewhat mischievous sides, you also have a deeply emotional side, so a loyal canine BFF would be a heart-warming option.
Like Virgo, not having a pet wouldn’t mean the end of the world to most Sagittarians. Some of you centaurs have an affinity for horses, though, which makes sense. But travelers that you are, unless you find a little furry dog to join you in all of your adventures, it’s better for you to have a low-maintenance pet that others can look after while you’re out and about. How about a turtle?
On-the-go Capricorn, you’ll want to carefully choose the best companion for your lifestyle. One thing to remember is that a big, lovable dog or a pretty kitty would bring out your nurturing side. Plus, if you’re a career-driven Cap, your lovable pet kids will give you the best reason to come home a little earlier.
You tend to like animals more than people. If you decide to get a pet, it’s likely to be something as quirky and eccentric as you are—a conversation piece like an iguana or a pot belly pig perhaps. Birds represent your air element as well as your love of freedom, but get a pair so they don’t get lonely when you decide to venture out.
While a tank full of fish or a koi pond is—for obvious reasons—the best pet choice for your zodiac sign, you’re also a softy for a pet-in-need and you can never leave a stray behind, especially dogs. You give them food, water, shelter and unconditional love, and they return the love ten-fold. They’ll be your loyal companion for life.
