Do you have a pet? Or, have you considered getting a pet? If not, you will want to consider it because pets can make excellent companions. It does not matter whether you have a dog, a cat, or a hamster. A furry friend (or scaly friend if you have a gecko) can add some life to your home.
Sure, there are extra responsibilities and costs associated with having a pet, but they add so much to your life that you will want to honor the pets in your life, whether yours or a loved one’s pet, on April 11th, as it is Pet Day. However, if you are considering getting a pet but are still deciding what animal to adopt, let’s see the best pet based on your zodiac sign.
Aries – A Large Dog
Aries, you are energetic and powerful, and if you get a pet, you will want to get one that will match who you are. That is why any large dog will be ideal for you. Large dogs require plenty of exercise as they have so much energy to expend, and you can relate to that. They are powerful in their own way, which you can admire, whether you get a German Shepherd who can be a good guard dog or a retriever that makes excellent hunting or service dogs. And you can have a great companion to walk with each day to expend energy together.
Taurus – A Hamster
Taurus, you are not active, and you like your routines uninterrupted. Therefore, you will need a low-maintenance pet; the best pet is a hamster. Hamsters are cuddly, and you can allow them to roam around within your proximity as you are doing a sedentary activity such as watching TV. And they also sleep a lot during the day as they are nocturnal, but they are awake sometimes. Therefore, you can enjoy having your mellow pet roam around while you can rest, as long as you keep the doors and cabinets closed.
Gemini – A Parrot
Gemini, you are talkative and need intellectual stimulation. Therefore, you will only want a pet that does a little such as a hamster. What better pet can provide you with what you need than a parrot? Sure, the parrot will not provide intellectual stimulation because parrots only repeat what they hear. However, they do talk, and Gemini, you love to be amused, which is why a parrot is a great pet, as they will keep you laughing when they repeat what you and anyone else say repeatedly. However, they are expensive, and they are also high maintenance, but worth it.
Cancer – Rabbit Or Lap Dogs
Cancer, you are emotional and moody, and you need plenty of cuddles, and you also want to give a pet plenty of cuddles and to nurture. That is why a rabbit is an excellent pet for you. Even though rabbits can be somewhat high maintenance, they are quite affectionate, and you can cuddle them any time. Rabbits are delicate and do need plenty of love from their owners. Specific breeds of dogs would also be an excellent fit for you, such as those considered lap dogs, such as the Shi Zhu or Bichon Frise, as you can cuddle them at any time you choose. They are always up for a nice belly rub.
Leo – Bengal Cat
Leo, you love to stand out and be the center of attention, so it makes sense you want a pet that appears exotic but is still domesticated because you do not want to have the expense of an exotic pet. Therefore, the Bengal cat is a great pet idea for you. Bengal cats have an exotic appearance, and when you are with your pet out in public, you will get plenty of attention, so that is the main reason you want to have this pet. Besides, they also prefer to be independent, so that does not tie you down.
Virgo – Fish
Virgo, you are clean, and you do not like to clean up messes often, which is why pet hair is one thing you do not want to deal with at all. Sure, some non-shedding dogs do not leave much fur behind, but you prefer your pet to be low maintenance since you have so many other things to focus on. Therefore, fish are a great pet because they are low maintenance, and you seldom have to clean the tank. Secondly, you know you get stressed often, and looking at the fish swim provides the calming effect you need.
Libra – Guinea Pigs
Libra, relationships are important to you, and you only like simple things so you will need a lower-maintenance and personable pet. The guinea pig is the ideal pet for you. They are much lower maintenance than rabbits and dogs and are friendlier and more personable than hamsters or cats. They love to be with people, love to interact, and will keep you company. And you dislike being alone, so you would want to have a pet that will remind you that you are never alone. With their constant affection and purring, the guinea pig will prevent you from feeling lonely.
Scorpio – A Reptile
Scorpio, you are intense and passionate and have a dark side (everyone does, but you embrace yours more than anyone else). You are also mysterious, which is why the ideal pet for you would be a reptile. You may have a lizard or a snake as a pet because you appreciate their mysterious side and unusual beauty. You love how they stand out, and you also will find yourself having an intuitive and unique connection to these animals. You may even be the one to own a tarantula, which is an arachnid, not a reptile, for the same reason.
Sagittarius – A Labrador Retriever
Sagittarius, you are happy-go-lucky, outgoing, and love to go on various adventures. You would do well with a labrador retriever dog, as they are always energetic and happy animals. They are adventurous and will go on so many road trips with you. You can also travel with them as they can handle that well, and you would make excellent companions. You would not do well with a pet that does not do much, sits around all day, and does not interact much, and a labrador retriever will not do any of those things. They want you to keep them busy like you want to stay busy.
Capricorn – Hedgehog
Capricorn, you are goal-oriented and very busy with your responsibilities. You have a family, work, and other responsibilities to focus on, so you only have a little to give to a high-maintenance pet. That means if you want a pet, you will want one with lower maintenance and energy. Therefore, a hedgehog is a great pet idea. The hedgehog is delicate, and because Cancer is your opposing sign, you have some nurturing traits you would give to your hedgehog. You may find it great company for you when you work.
Aquarius – An Exotic Pet
Aquarius, you are the one that marches to your drummer, so you are not one to go for a traditional pet. Instead, you would prefer an exotic pet that will make you stand out from the crowd. You are a free spirit and do not want a pet tying you down too much, so the exotic pet you would get would have to be low-maintenance. So therefore, the best choices for you would be a chinchilla, a sugar glider, a hermit crab, or a bearded dragon. A hedgehog would be a good fit too.
Pisces – Any Dog
Pisces, you are empathetic and nurturing, and sensitive. And you also want to get the love you give out back, which is why you would do well with a dog of any breed. You would be committed to caring for the dog as they require a lot of responsibility, but you would fulfill it because the dog gives you so much love and company. It is an excellent give-and-take kind of pet-owner relationship. If you are alone, you will have the company you want with your dog as they cuddle with you as you watch TV or read a book.
Pets are not for everyone, and if you do not have the lifestyle for a pet or prefer not to have one for other reasons, you should not get one. You will only want to get one likewise if you have the time, energy, or desire to devote to a pet. However, if you have a pet, or are looking for one, then Pet Day is the day to honor them and become inspired to become a pet owner if you don’t have one yet. This list can encourage you to adopt the ideal pet unless you are set on getting a particular dog or cat breed.
