Aries, if you were a cat breed, you'd definitely be the Somali. The Somali is the long-haired cousin to the Abyssinian, and they have a personality that's very similar to the Aries zodiac sign. You're both adventurous, energetic, easy on the eyes, and passionate about everything you set out to accomplish. It's hard to find a Somali cat sitting still when there are trees to climb and new places to explore.
Taurus: British Shorthair
British Shorthairs have a regal energy to them, which is why they're so fitting as the cat breed for the Taurus sign. It's no secret you're both often hard-headed, but it's because you're so grounded in routine and loyal to the commitments you make. And while other cat breeds are easily distracted by silly things like feathers, you're more focused on the important things in life: comfort, safety, and why your food dish is empty.
Gemini, you're all about communication, which is why the chatty Bengal breed is a perfect fit with your sign. Bengals love talking, whether that's in meows, chirps, trills, yowls, purrs, or the occasional hiss. Not to mention you're both incredibly outgoing, clever, and curious. If there's a gathering, you know the social Bengal and Gemini will both be right in the middle of it!
Cancer, the Ragdoll is you in cat form. Ragdolls are known for being nurturing and in tune with their owners' moods; this is what makes them such great emotional support animals. You're both incredibly intuitive creatures who lead with compassion and care. And just like the cuddly Ragdoll breed, you'd sooner spend your evening wrapped in a blanket on the couch than out and about.
Leo: Maine Coon
With a thick mane and confident attitude, you're the Maine Coon of the cat world, Leo. Both you and the Maine Coon channel the same lion-like energy; you're brave, generous, loyal, and don't mind being the center of attention. And if you've ever met a Maine Coon IRL, you know they effortlessly steal the spotlight.
Siamese cats want to be everywhere at once; sound familiar, Virgo? They like every hair on their body to lay a specific way and won't rest until they're all in order. You're also both bright, kind, and committed creatures. Even though it might take you a bit of time to warm up to people, you bond deeply with your circle. And just like the Siamese breed, Virgo, you're not afraid to speak your mind. You're not kitten around!
The Persian is no doubt the Libra of cat breeds. Just as people with the Libra sign thrive on balance and harmony, the Persian cat breed is the ultimate peacemaker. They have an easygoing, calm demeanor that makes anyone in their presence feel relaxed. You are both simultaneously extroverted and introverted, silly and sensible; you're truly the best of both worlds.
If a Munchkin cat strolled into a room, you'd definitely notice it, right? The same thing is true about you, Scorpio. You and the Munchkin are a perfect match because you both have a powerful presence and an assertive nature. Not to mention, you're ambitious, brave, and super smart. When a Munchkin puts their mind to something, they won't stop until they achieve it, regardless of any obstacles in their way.
The cat form of the Sagittarius zodiac sign is, without a doubt, the Singapura. This lesser-known cat breed carries all the same traits as the Sag; they're confident, friendly, energetic, playful, and always eager to explore. The Singapura certainly isn't a lap cat, just as the spontaneous Sag doesn't like to stay in one place for too long.
Capricorn: Norwegian Forest Cat
Capricorn, you're a big-picture thinker, which makes you a great fit with the big, fluffy Norwegian Forest Cat. Like this cat breed, you're not afraid to climb to the top of a tree in order to get a good look at a situation. You're both independent, loyal, and loving. And your shared ambitious nature means you commit to your goals, whether that's catching the laser pointer or sneaking a bite of a tuna from the counter.
Aquarius: Selkirk Rex
Aquarius, we're not saying you're weird, but you're definitely original. And that's precisely why the perfect feline match for your sign is the eccentric Selkirk Rex. This cat breed has a curly coat that makes them look a bit more like a sheep than a cat, but that's what makes them so special. Like the Selkirk Rex, you aren't afraid to be a free spirit, Aquarius.
Pisces: Turkish Van
As a water sign, the perfect cat breed to represent Pisces is one that loves water: the Turkish Van. It's true; this breed is nicknamed the "swimming cat" because of their affinity for water. Along with the love you share for H2O, you both share several personality traits, like being loving, empathetic, and effortlessly charming.
