If you’re a Taurus, you might be wondering what kind of pet would suit your personality and lifestyle. After all, choosing a new pet is a big decision that requires careful consideration. Luckily, astrology can help you find the best match for your star sign.
Taurus people are known for being dependable, sensual, and easy-going. They value stability, comfort, and pleasure in life. They also love nature and enjoy spending time outdoors. Therefore, they need pets that are mellow, loyal, and soft. Here are some of the best pets for Taurus, based on their zodiac compatibility.
Dogs: Dogs are the ultimate loyal companions for Taurus, who appreciate their unconditional love and devotion. A dog for Taurus will be their best friend for life—they get along so well that many bulls love their dogs more than their own family. However, not all dogs are suitable for Taurus. This sign prefers middle-sized dogs that are not too energetic or demanding. They also like dogs that are easy to train and groom. An easy-going dog from a shelter is where Taurus usually finds their fur-ever friend. Some examples of dog breeds that are compatible with Taurus are Golden Retrievers, Beagles, Pugs, and Cocker Spaniels.
Cats: Cats are another great choice for Taurus because they share their love of lounging and cuddling. Cats are low-maintenance animals that don’t require much attention or exercise. They also have a sensual side that appeals to Taurus’ tactile sensitivity. A cat for Taurus will be their cozy companion on lazy winter nights or in the summer after coming in from the fresh air. The warm and fuzzy faces of kittens and cats will always tickle a Taurus’s fancy and make them feel at home no matter where they are. Some examples of cat breeds that are compatible with Taurus are Ragdolls, Persians, British Shorthairs, and Maine Coons.
Rabbits: Rabbits are a bit wilder than your traditional domestic animal, but they can make an ideal pet for Taurus if they are tame and friendly. Rabbits as pets require a lot of maintenance, such as cleaning their cages and providing them with fresh food and water, but Taurus doesn’t mind as long as they can have Mother Earth companions around them when in the garden, at home, or just enjoying a drink on the patio as is in their nature as Earth signs. Additionally, a rabbit cage can be moved around to Taurus’ liking and makes an ideal friend for bulls, particularly in the warmer seasons. Rabbits are also soft and cuddly animals that can bond with their owners.
Tortoises: Tortoises are not the most common pets, but they can be a good option for Taurus who likes to connect with nature and relax in beautiful outdoor settings. Tortoises are low-key and easy to care for, which suits Taurus’ laid-back personality. They also live for a long time, which appeals to Taurus’ sense of stability and commitment. Tortoises can be kept indoors or outdoors, depending on the climate and space available. They can also be very friendly and sociable animals that enjoy being handled and fed by their owners.
Professional astrologer and animal lover Rebecca M. Farrar believes it’s essential for people to find an energy within an animal that complements their own identity. She gave us some insight on what pet may be best suited for each zodiac sign based on her own studies and observations. “While it may seem cliche to say a cat for Leos, I do see a special affinity!” says Farrar. “Leos (the Lion sign) are dramatic, outgoing, fiery, and self-assured. This sign channels the fierce side of cats, unlike the Taurus who emulates more of the sensual side.”
So if you’re a Taurus looking for a new pet, you might want to consider these options based on your star sign. Whether you choose a dog, a cat, a rabbit, or a tortoise, you’re sure to find a furry friend that will make you happy and comfortable.
