Fun facts: What the Zodiac signs say about your cat

Fun facts: What the Zodiac signs say about your cat

  • Aug 18

Ever wondered if your pet’s personality traits have something to do with when they were born? If you’re into astrology, you’ll be delighted to know that our little furry friends are also influenced by the stars.

So next time your fiery cat shows signs of stubbornness or of a possessive behavior, you can simply laugh and say: “Oh you’re such an Aries!”

But let’s see exactly how the different signs apply to your cute as a button pet. And if you don’t know exactly when they were born, don’t fret. If your kitty was a stray that you rescued from the streets, you can use the date you brought them home instead. Their “rescue birthday” might allow you to understand better the relationship you have with your pet. Another option is to talk to your vet, that could give you an approximate birth date. 


ARIES (March 21-April 19) 

Is your cat a skillful hunter that leaves you a lot of tiny “gifts”? Does he seem obsessed with sleeping next to you in bed, not allowing anyone to steal his cuddling spot? Does he have a lot of extra energy that needs to be burned at 2 in the morning, doing crazy laps around the house? Then you should know you’re the proud owner of an Aries kitty with a strong personality!


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

A Taurus kitty will love comfort above all else. Expect your kitten to sleep on the plushest sofa, to want only the best food and to enjoy long, long, loooooong scratches behind the ears. Also, as a stubborn sign, your furry friend will not appreciate at all if you try to move her from her favorite spot, which by no coincidence, is the best spot in the house.  


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

A Gemini kitty will have a dual personality, playful and meowing happily one moment, annoyed and retreating in her safe zone the next. Even if their changes in behavior might give you a whiplash, you should know these kittens are very sociable and most likely won’t stay hidden for too long.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

A Cancer cat is a sensitive, loving pet that adores her owner and has the tendency to follow him around everywhere. Now you know why your fluffy princess stalks you even in the shower!


LEO (July 23-August 22)

If you have a kitten that doesn’t handle well being ignored or left alone for too long, you’re probably dealing with a Leo. These cats crave the constant attention and petting and might scratch the couch if they feel they do not have your undivided attention.


VIRGO (August 23-September 22)

Everybody knows that cats are extremely clean creatures, but Virgo born felines easily take the crown! They love grooming and can spend hours and hours cleaning themselves. They also prefer sunny areas of the house where they can chill and relax, watching what is happening outside.


LIBRA (September 23-October 22)

These furballs are extremely social and thrive on companionship so they prefer to be around you at all times. Also, if you have a Libra cat, they will welcome any new members of the family with excitement. So, if you’re thinking of getting them a little furry brother or sister, you can do it with confidence.


SCORPIO (October 23-November 22)

Scorpio cats can be a tad secretive and will like to hide their toys in weird places or snuggle comfortably under the blanket. Sometimes they might nap in private areas, away from the chaos, so you might look for them for hours while they’re off to dreamland in the closet.


SAGITTARIUS (November 23-December 21)

The free spirit of the Zodiac, a Sagittarius born cat will thrive on exploring the outdoors and roaming around the neighborhood. If you have a courtyard where they can play or climb trees that is perfect for them, and if they leave on expedition trips around the block, don’t panic, they’ll come back to you.


CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19)

Cute and sweet companions, Capricorn kitties are definitely the quirkiest of them all. Does your kitty prefer the toilet water rather than her own bowl? Does she sleep in weird places like the sink or a big plant pot? Chances are, you have a Capricorn!


AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18)

A very talkative sign, these cats will meow every chance they get and express all their feelings through chirps, purrs and chatters. They get easily bored, so make sure you have a lot of toys at hand.


PISCES (February 19-March 20)

Generally speaking, cats are not known to be great water lovers, but Pisces kitties will enjoy a good bath and are the most likely to jump in the shower with you. Also, they posses a great intuition and they’ll take it upon themselves to soothe you when you’ve had a crappy day. Wonderful, right?


Who knew your pet’s sign can reveal so much about him or her? Do you find any correlation between your furballs personality and when they were born?

My cat is definitely a Taurus by birth-date and a Cancer by rescue date, stubborn and stalking me in the shower, while sleeping only in the best places around the house!
