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.
Complex, emotional, intense, secretive — these qualities describe not just your personality, but also your perfect pet. Your best furry friend might be a cat, as you get a kick out of these maddening, enigmatic creatures who seem to think they control the world. You might also be attracted to the beauty and mystery of a pet snake, tarantula or Emperor scorpion — all creatures others find frightening, but which you could find fascinating. A dog, however, may be the most likely animal to connect with you in a deeply emotional and satisfying way. A powerful wolf-dog hybrid or a sleek, strong Great Dane could nuzzle its way right into your heart.
