Choosing to get a pet is not a decision you should make lightly. You’re not just getting a toy, it’s a friend you’ll have for years to come. It’s going to rely on you to feed it, take care of it and entertain it, so it’s crucial to evaluate whether you’re even ready for such a responsibility. There are so many things to consider. Are you financially stable enough to get a pet? Cause it’s not just their food you’ll have to pay for, vet visits can cost a pretty penny too. How much time do you have that you can spend with your pet? What kind of lifestyle do you lead? Active or laid back? You need a pet that will match those needs too. And even when you’re done answering those questions you still need to figure out what kind of animal will be best for you in terms of temperament and character. A fun way to decided that is to look at your Zodiac sign, since it can be a good way to sum up your personality.
1. Aries – Puppy
You are generally quite optimistic, active and hands on in your approach to life. A puppy will be a perfect pet for Aries. Dogs are always excited to see you, they love running and playing, so if you lead a very active lifestyle they will make great companion for morning or evening runs and weekend hikes. Basically, if you’re an Aries and you always thought you were a dog person – you were right!
2. Taurus – Teacup Piglet
You’re smart, independent, but also love attention? A teacup pig is the best pet for you. They’re as smart as puppies, and despite their size they can fend for themselves pretty well, so that will match your personality pretty well. Plus, having a pig as a pet is still considered unusual, so you’re bound to get lots of attention whenever you take your pet for a walk in the park.
3. Gemini – Parrot
Geminis are not quiet people. You love gossiping, talking to your friends and voicing your opinions and you need a pet who can hold up a conversation. A parrot is a great option for you. They’re just as energetic as you and they will love listening to you, even if it’s 6am or the middle of the night. What’s even better – they’re smart birds, so you can teach them words and phrases, so they can hold up their end of a conversation!
4. Cancer – Kitty
You Cancer people are quite caring, nurturing and patient. You also love the idea of spending your free time at home, watching movies and just chilling rather than going out and socializing. Well guess what? You should get a cat. They can be a bit demanding, which you can easily handle, and they always give back to their owners by showing love and appreciation with cuddles and purring. Just imagine how much better your chill time in front of a TV will be if you have a fluffy cat to cuddle with.
