Aquarius with pets
Aquarians are keen campaigners for animal rights and will, generally, go to whatever lengths they feel are necessary to improve the global treatment and conditions of animals. However, when it comes to being a pet-owner yourself, you are hardly the most enthusiastic and doting in the Zodiac, mainly due to the fact that there are so many other things you want to do with your time.

Nonetheless, Aquarians with a penchant for pets do make good and caring owners. Your problem lies in finding an animal which fits in with your independent lifestyle and is sufficiently different to appeal to your unconventional taste.

As a pet-owner you are unlikely to overburden your furry or feathered friends with extravagant displays of emotion. In fact, you will be more inclined to let them get on with their lives while you get on with your own. That is not to suggest a lack of affection or concern on your part, just a natural inability to express your deeper feelings which applies as much to your relationships with animals as it does to those with humans.
You certainly appear to enjoy the company of animals and, curiously enough, tend to be able to cope with several, rather more easily than with a single pet. Donkeys seem to be a particular favourite, and it is not unusual for country-dwelling Aquarians to have a field full of rescue donkeys at the back of their homes.

Donkeys are, in fact, the ideal pet for Aquarians, sharing your positive attitude in the face of adversity and, like you, refusing to budge when their minds are made up. They are also loyal, friendly, quiet and detached and well able to get on with their lives while you get on with yours.

Iguanas are another option for the Aquarian looking for a pet with a difference. These large tropical lizards are independent, detached and prefer being left to themselves. They rarely show their emotions but, despite being able to bite, scratch and lash out with their tails, can become very tame with regular handling.

When it comes to cats, the devon rex is eccentric enough in looks and behaviour to appeal to most Aquarians. Nicknamed ‘little pixies’, these friendly cats have very short curly coats which don’t need grooming. They have impish natures and enjoy plenty of human companionship.

The loyal and friendly mastiff which can weight up to 13 stone is very much an Aquarian dog, being intelligent, friendly with other humans and, at times, quite aloof. It needs mental stimulation rather than huge amounts of exercise.

The suggestions above are merely guidelines and in no way suggest that there is only one breed or type of pet which is suitable for any one Zodiac sign. And it is, of course, essential to know everything there is to know about buying and keeping any pet before taking it home.
