Worshipped in Ancient Egypt as godlike creatures, reviled in Renaissance Europe as messengers of the Devil, the occult and cats are intrinsically linked. You can even find them among the stars – just look at Leo, the heavenly Lion of the zodiac. But what about those of us not born under the royal fat cat? For cat lovers and anyone else entertained by a few good cat memes, it's time to see which fancy cat breed matches your astrological sign.

You're an energetic fighter with loads of confidence, Aries. Sure, you are a little demanding at times, but there's always an adventure when you're around, and you need a cat that can keep up. This is why the Abyssinian is perfect for you. 

One of the oldest cat breeds, Abyssinians are demanding in their own right but are also intelligent, curious, and love attention. The Aby is no lap cat – they love to explore and interact with humans. Just make sure they are the only cat in your household, as they won't want to share you with anyone else. For a great partner-in-crime, look no further than the Abyssinian.

As a Taurus, you love comfort, beauty, and the finer things in life, and you'll fight like heck to get them. You know just what you want, and you don't let obstacles get in your way. Such qualities may make you appear stubborn to some, but you're a loyal friend who will always be there for the people who matter. Hence, your best match in the cat world is the American Shorthair.

Affectionate and friendly, these loyal fur friends will never let you down. Sure, American Shorthairs love to be on their own, but they're most comfortable by your side. These loving companions are smart, happy, and social with other animals as well as people.

As a Gemini, your mind, mouth, and disarming wit work at lightning speed. Curious, fun, and cutting-edge, with two distinct personalities, no one knows who they're getting from day to day as you flit between moods at the drop of a hat. You need a cat with attitude who will reflect your duality.

The perfect feline match for you are Tortoiseshells. While not a distinct breed – they are a variation of the American Shorthair – they might as well be, as their personality traits are vastly different from other cats. Tortoiseshells are notably feistier than their kitty counterparts with considerably more distinct personalities, and, like Geminis, they are unpredictable and love to talk!

You're a homebody, Cancer, who loves to entertain and, in turn, loves to be entertained yourself. When you get moody, however, you feel more than a little vulnerable and sometimes need a shoulder to cry on. For you, there is no more loyal companion than the Exotic.

Exotics have a sweet, docile, and quiet temperament. They love attention in the forms of petting or playtime, with males exhibiting these traits somewhat more than females. If an Exotic's basic needs are met – that's food and fun, by the way – the rewards of their consistent loyalty and love are endless!
