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.
The sign of the Scales needs peace and harmony at home. Therefore, an aggressive dog or a temperamental cat that hissed and scratched would cause far too much stress for your amiable personality. Similarly, an overly demanding or undisciplined animal that required constant training or intervention would tax your energy and patience. Since you seek balance in all things and you’re naturally attracted to beauty, go for an affectionate, sociable animal with handsome markings, such as a gentle Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, a Siamese cat, or a bird with bright plumage that can be trained to be gregarious.
