Best Pets for Capricorn

Kelli Fox

According to popular lore, dogs are man’s best friend — but while many people adore the devotion and companionship of a puppy, not everyone wants to deal with muddy paws, slobbery licks or begging at the dinner table. The same goes for cats: Some find them beautiful and intriguing, while others see them as little more than snooty sneeze-factories. So which furry, feathered or scaly animal could be your best friend? Your Zodiac sign is a great place to find ideas. Our signs impart unique qualities and characteristics that help shape not only our personalities, but also our preferences. Your Sun sign can reveal the type of animal that might make your very best companion — your own, personal best friend.

If you’re like most Capricorns, you tend to spend a lot of time away from home, whether at the office or out with clients. Therefore, you need a pet that doesn’t require a lot of time or energy to care for. Plus, you’re thrifty, yet you also have expensive tastes. You might spring for a more expensive pedigreed animal if the breed simply appeals to you or fits your lifestyle. Just be sure to research your options carefully before committing. An undisciplined, clingy or high-maintenance animal will frustrate you. A Persian cat could be your perfect match, with its beauty, independence and fine reputation. If you balk at the thought of cleaning up all that fur, a hairless breed of feline could be an even better fit.

    I have 2 cats (9 and 14 yrs), 2 dogs (14 and 10) and can’t imagine life without them. I had a rottie mix that lived through surgeries and finally passed at 13. My pets are my refuge from the outside world. They love me through my ups and downs and keep me grounded when I slip into melancholy. My responsibility to care for them has motivated me to keep going when I wanted to quit. Their joyful affection, unquestionable loyalty and true hearts help me remember what is most important in life. My relationships with them have outlasted every romantic relationship I’ve ever had. It may be my Scorpio rising or other aspects in my personal chart but I need them as much as I needed my son until he grew up and moved away. I traveled extensively before I had them and welcomed them as an anchor in a stormy sea. No matter what happens, they’re there.
