The Aries pet, whether female or male, is full of pep and could make your running shoes smoke! This pet will demand your undivided attention and literally push everyone out of the way in order to get you nose to nose! They are aggressive, bark loudly, and are the first to jump to attention when they hear the jingle of the leash, or to greet you at the door. No matter how small their stature, they will challenge the largest animal, and then run away like crazy.

Rambunctious, adventurous, eager to explore, and very active, they need lots of time to run and play. They are restless and fidgety, so confinement is uncomfortable. Open spaces with lots of frisbee is a necessity! You'll notice, too, that they might not be particularly graceful, so put your treasured breakables in a safe place. And, watch how they seem to always hit their heads while playing!

Despite their playful attitude, they are very intelligent, learning that new trick in a flash. Loveable and affectionate, your Aries pet will sporadically demonstrate affection in brief spurts. Food is inhaled if they can stand still in one place long enough! Oh, yes, they can get easily tangled, so keep the leads short and the jeweled collars and frills for the Taurus and Leo pets.











Your Taurean pet loves creature comforts. Pampering is a must! They can be very finicky with their food, and often will select just those tasty morsels from the bowl and demand particular table scraps. If you allow it, the Taurus pet will indulge in rich gravies and other succulent human foods, but be careful, as these could upset his digestion.

They love to be stroked and massaged for endless hours at a time, often nudging your hand to continue. You'll see them wanting to sleep on silk, satin, or warm, soft fleece blankets...nothing harsh or scratchy for them! This pet can be good with children, but needs to be your #1 child. Staid and stubborn, you might find this pet rather lazy, preferring to lounge the day away rather than go for a good long run. Consequently, weight gain is easy for them.

These pets train relatively easily, but do not like to change patterns once they are set...moving their bed or food is not to their liking. Keep toys and chewies on the softer side, as they do not like to work that hard for pleasure. And, be sure that their bejewelled collars are loose enough for full mobility and breathing room.









Your Geminian pet is social and fun, and very friendly to almost anyone! This pet is an explorer, and sometimes a wanderer.

Food is eaten sparingly... often they might even forget to eat!

Breathing and lung conditions frequently visit these pets. Traveling is quite easy and they usually enjoy the variety and rhythmic movement immensely.

Your cancer pet is one of the most affectionate lovers of home! Rarely will this pet wander or leave the property. This pet loves the security of his own space and needs a safe spot that is just his. Often they will hide under a blanket or in a box and make their protective nest inside something. This pet will bury things, protect its owner and young children, as well as its first love -- food, which they do not want to share. They can hoard food and stash it away, and weight gain occurs in a blink! You might need to set out portions for your cancer pet. Be consistent with their brand of food, as their digestive systems are sensitive.

This pet is easily trained (food is a good reward!), and loves to please its master. Never use food as punishment.

They are an "all or nothing" pet, and will either gobble all their food in a flash, wolfing it down, or snub it and avoid it completely.

This is probably the most "one owner" pet that there is, loyal and trustworthy, demanding the same from his owner. Hurt feelings and anger will make him vengeful, and he can demonstrate that by getting even in an unsavory manner and showing his destructive side.

If you introduce a new pet to your Scorpio pet, do it very slowly, as Scorpio can get very jealous. They are very protective as a parent to offspring, and will defend their young to the end.

Your Aquarian pet will keep you guessing all the time.
