If you’re a cat parent you probably agree—cats can be mysterious beings. If you’re seeking the answers to why your feline is the way she is, you might want to gaze toward the skies. After all, the celestial signs offer insight into you and me. Can they do the same for your pet? Here’s what your cat’s Zodiac sign says about them.
Don’t know your kitty's birthday? Swap in their “gotcha day”, or read through and choose the cat horoscope that resonates the most!
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Fire sign Aries is always the top kitty. From securing the highest perch in the house to the first arrival at the breakfast bowl, she is sure she is number one in her house. If she’s the only pet, well that’s just the way she likes it. The Aries cat craves challenges, so keep her inquisitive mind busy with food puzzles and games.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
The Taurus meows for the best things in life, like plush memory foam beds and sunshine-filled naps atop luxurious perches. She is regal and she is graceful and isn’t afraid to flaunt it. Just don’t tell this stubborn feline where to go—like her carrier for a trip to the vet.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Zoomie central! Spontaneous, playful, and a bit erratic, your cat never fails to bring you laughs. Gemini cats can usually be found relentlessly chasing their tail and your adult Gemini seems to have never lost touch with that inner-kitten energy. Provide your cat with plenty of stimulation, and consider providing a cat wheel for those late-night marathons.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Like their representative crab, the cancer kitty seems to have a protective shield up. This might be interpreted as aloof, timid, and even anxious by humans she doesn’t know. Get to know this feline a little more and you’ll find one of the most affectionate and bonded cats around.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
If it’s your cat’s house and you’re just living in it, you might have a Leo on your clean laundry. Your Leo king or queen rules their human abode—or at least they think they do. Passionate, loyal, and perhaps overly dramatic, your fierce feline just asks that you don’t make them compete for your attention.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
A perfectionist through and through, it’s best that you never skip a single day of litter box scooping if you have a Virgo in the house. A Virgo treasures cleanliness and most important of all is her daily bath (or two). Maintain a consistent routine and don’t dare swap their favorite food for something new, and you’ll be rewarded with endless purrs and kisses (or is she trying to groom you too?).
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra kitties are all about balance (beyond balancing on the high-up spot that gives you heart palpitations). Most important to the Libra feline is the balance of play with napping, so they ask for an equal amount of stimulating toys and a cozy place for a snooze. While they can be cautious of new situations and environments, they will quickly settle in with the help of their trusted human companion.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Fierce, brave, and sometimes misunderstood, the Scorpio kitty gets what she wants. If your cat is a Scorpio, then you know exactly what we mean. While she might seem short-tempered (and isn’t afraid to show any displeasure), you won’t meet a more faithful feline than the Scorpio.
Sagittarius (November 22- December 21)
Oh, the places your Sagittarius cat wants to go. If given the chance, your optimistic, go-lucky cat would waltz right out the front door onto the next big adventure! No matter what great adventure she is undertaking, you know she is making friends along the way. Sagittarius cats are the first to greet visitors and the last to pass up a warm lap (non-cat lovers included). Indulge her adventurous side with a catio, harness training, or a window perch.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
From biscuit making to box inspecting, your Capricorn cat takes her daily activities seriously. She might come off as a little bossy, but she’s just trying to keep her humble human abode in check. Sometimes it seems that your wise feline has lived more than her nine lives, but beneath her serious exterior is a young-at-heart cat looking for some love.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Like their human Aquarius counterparts, Aquarius cats are innovative, self-reliant, and clever. She doesn’t need fancy mice, wands, or kickers. It’s the fallen twist-tie or rouge toilet paper roll that brings her the most joy. And, like other Aquarius’, she’s forward-thinking—about her next meal.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
It might seem as though your Pisces cat knows exactly when you need a friendly snuggle. An outstanding emotional support companion, the Pisces is almost psychic in her ability to detect and respond to your emotions. While they are the most emotionally in-tune of all Zodiacs, they also hurt the easiest. So, be mindful of an on-time breakfast and maybe let it slide when she accidentally knocks your favorite plant over.
