Look to astrology to find a cat who likes to stay at home and not go wandering so much. Cats and dogs that are either Taurus or Cancer are more likely to stay at home according to the UK’s only pet astrologer, Fiona Celeste.
Pets born under the sign of Cancer like their home comforts. Taurean cats are more placid and slower so don’t go missing so much.
Aries cats and dogs are “impulsive and like to assert control”. You want a boss cat? Find an Aries cat.
According to Fiona, Leo cats don’t like to be told off for doing something wrong. Well, I don’t really get that because all cats don’t like being told off because they never do anything wrong. Some people just don’t like some of the things that some cats do.
Gemini cats are more vocal than usual so if you like a good gossip with your cat choose a Gemini.
The tricky part of selecting a cat based on their date of birth (is the time of birth important too?) is that you won’t know the date. You almost certainly won’t know if the cat is a stray, feral or rescue cat.
Also I don’t like the idea of selecting cats this way even if you believe in astrology because it means selecting a cat on your preferences rather than on the cat’s needs. It is far kinder and more humane to select the most vulnerable cat.
Celeste has a business called Celestial Paws. She’ll do a 7,000 word reading for £30 if you provide a photo and date of birth. That is great value but you have to believe in it. Fiona lives in Glasgow, Scotland.
If you believe in astrology – and there is some evidence to say that it has some merit – it may be of some benefit to know your cat’s birth date. Incidentally, if you know your cat’s date of birth it would be nice if we could verify in an informal way Fiona’s predictions on cat and dog character. Please leave a comment.
