Are your pussycats’ purr-sonalities written in the stars? It may be more fancy than fact, but consulting the cosmos for clues can be both entertaining and illuminating. All you need are their birth dates to see if they match the birth signs below.
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Aires cats are adventurous, bright and brave, and are seldom deterred by obstacles. Often impulsive and always energetic, they thrive on exploring, eliciting appreciative grins from their humans as they frolic like kitty cat clowns. But what these amiable kitties love most is being the center of their owners’ attention.
Taurus (April 21 – May 20)
Taurus cats relish the finer things in life, especially food, making exercise an absolute must to maintain their fit physiques. Their stubborn streak requires both a set routine and a pristine litter box, and although they may play hard to get, once you win them over, these terrific kitties will be loyal to you and only you.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini cats are chatty and charming, flitting airily about, and winning hearts wherever they go. True to their “twin” sign, they may also display a duality in their temperament, mischievously manic one minute and startlingly sullen the next. And yet their undeniable magnetism makes these glorious kitties hard to resist.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer cats were born to love and please their owners. Emotional and expressive, they have the most nurturing and sensitive natures. Their demonstrative side is clear in the tender way they lick their humans’ foreheads and cuddle up close to them. How lucky, then, are the recipients of these caring cats’ ministrations?
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo cats are lions in miniature, endearingly extroverted, regal yet rakish, who covet being the center of everyone’s undivided attention. Ever so entertaining, whether “fighting” themselves in the mirror or hunting dust bunnies under the furniture, these lovable kitties wear their royal robes with a saucy sense of humor.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo cats give new meaning to the word “purr-fection”. Fastidious self-groomers, they not only tend to themselves daily but they expect the same from those tending to their litter box. Firm fans of labor and fixed foes of laziness, they may make marvelous mousers, but their most appealing asset is the way they venerate their chosen people.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra cats are all about balance. When relating to their owners, they expect their displays of affection to be equally reciprocated, and they blossom in the companionship of other cats. Fair and kind, yet occasionally indecisive when it comes to completing “projects”, these levelheaded kitties are never indecisive about whom they love.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
Scorpio cats are intense! Fiercely loyal, they flourish in deep, meaningful relationships with their owners — to the point of possessiveness — and can tend to resource guard around other cats. But their innate desire for intimacy and love make these infinitely social felines the most impassioned of fur-ever companions.
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 22)
Sagittarius cats delight in staring dreamily and endlessly out windows. Never bashful about “meowing” their mind, they’ll happily knead your chest to drive home their point any time of the day or night. And yet, their overall positive attitude and encouraging nature combine to make these sassy cats sincerely indispensable.
Capricorn (December 23 – January 22)
Capricorn cats are both ambitious and goal oriented, never stopping until successfully completing the task at paw. Fearless risk takers and fiercely competitive, they’re also extremely playful, making these capering kitties not only sources of inspiration but welcome additions to any active and loving household.
Aquarius (January 23 – Feb 18)
Aquarius cats favor their freedom above all else and are famous for getting lost, making microchips a must. Often aloof, rebellious and quirky, they nonetheless adore their friends, particularly their pet parents, and never tire of showing them how much they truly care in spite of their active attempts to wander.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces cats excel at being empathetic which makes them excellent service animals for those suffering from depression or anxiety. Instinctively intuitive, they possess the ability to “read” their owners’ minds, and while they may cling to them like ivy or pout when things aren’t purr-fect, they make the most purr-fect soul mates.
