Leo is a Fixed Fire Sign and this makes them very loyal and with an abundance of energy. Leo is also ruled by the Sun, and thus loves everything beautiful and glorious. An animal that caters to the vanity of Leo will be one cherished for all of time. However one that feeds Leos inner lion is one that will also stoke the fires of this Fixed Fire Sign.
The first and best choice for all Leos is of course the animal that will stoke the fire of their inner lion. A Leo would never say no to having a lion or a tiger as a pet, although the complications of this often outweigh the practicalities. A good tabby cat that will be loyal to the end, or a Blue Russian will be one that will feed both Leos vanity and need for loyalty. If you are getting a cat for a Leo, or for yourself as a Leo, the pure bred cats are the ones that Leo will spoil the most. Leo loves nothing but the best!
Leo likes luxury and all things that are regal. While a lion may not be the most practical choice for Leo, a horse to them is often the next best thing. Horses however are expensive and high maintenance, and not all Leos are able to appreciate them the way they would like. For the Leo that is unable to keep a horse at home, engaging in a hobby where frequent interaction with horses is a wonderful idea. However the resourceful Leo, who usually never has a problem with money anyway, can find a way to make it work with a horse pet if they are really inclined.
For the Leo that isn’t interested in cats, or that can’t afford to buy a horse, a dog is the next best thing. But Leo can’t have just any dog, it needs to be one that is the best of the best. Leo loves to show off, so a show dog is the perfect companion. One that is pure bred, easily taught, and can win ribbons for Leo will make Leo proud. The Leo with the show dog, even if it isn’t a blue ribbon winner, will reward their furry friend with loyalty that will last a lifetime. Invest in the time in research to learn your responsibilities and obligations with a show dog before you make the financial investment. It will pay off!
