As a lively Aries, you'll need a pet that can keep up with your energy levels. You probably have trouble sitting still–just like a ferret!
At the other end of the energy spectrum, Taureans are known for being so laid-back they're almost horizontal! But they also like a little love in their life, so a cuddly, low-maintenance hamster is a good option.
Chatty Geminis have a natural ally in the animal kingdom: the parrot. Birds such as the African Gray can keep a Gemini company all day long.
Cancers can be a little spiky at times, but like to nurture, too. A rescue hedgehog in need of a little love could be the ideal Cancer companion.
Lovably loud Leos don't like to fade into the background, and nor do chickens! A pet chicken can match even the most attention-seeking Leo for creating a lot of cluck and fuss.
Virgos need routine and structure in their life, as do these gentle dogs. And unlike some dog species, they won't be upsetting clean-and-tidy Virgos by shedding mounds of fur everywhere.
Balanced Libras like to be surrounded by beauty, but also like to give and receive love. A cute, cuddly rabbit could be the ideal pet.
A pet snake is not for the faint of heart, but Scorpios rarely frighten easily. A fiery Scorpio may appreciate the mysterious, even unsettling, appeal of a snake.
Hard-working Capricorns might be putting in long shifts at the office, in which case a super-needy animal isn't ideal. Guinea pigs can play by themselves (maybe get them a companion though) most of the day, and be ready for cuddles when you get back.
Aquarians have a quirky streak, as well as a love of thinking space. As a somewhat unusual pet that won't badger you for attention, a lizard fits the bill nicely.
A water sign, Pisceans can feel a natural affinity with fish. Both are intuitive and instinctive, loving to trust their instinct and go with the flow.
