Libra is the Cardinal Air Sign that is ruled by Venus, and as such, Libra loves all things that are beautiful and luxurious. Libra as well is the sign of partnerships, and thus most Libras have pets because they love socialization and having people and friends around from all species on Earth. The best pet for Libra is a high end pet, but one that will get along with everybody they bring into their circle. Smaller and low maintenance pets pair best with Libra, than larger more extravagant pets.

Cats are great friends to Libra because they are very intelligent and one of the most psychic animals on Earth. Libra is a little psychic as well, but in the intelligence way. Cats will be great for Libra when the party is over and Libra still wants a warm body to snuggle with. But for Libra, it can't be just any cat. A pure breed such as a beautiful Russian Blue or the Maine Coon is the most ideal cat for Libra who always wants the best of the best.

Dogs are wonderful companions to Libra and Libra finds them useful for many reasons. Security for one thing at home when they are away, and a dog's loyalty will be rewarded by Libra. Again we have a zodiac sign that needs the best of them all, so a pure breed or a mixed breed that is on the high end is best for Libra. Greyhounds are fast and intelligent and make Libra happy, as do dogs that are family oriented such as retrievers or Labradors. Some Libras prefer small animals in the pure bred line of shitzus. Their quick feet make Libra giggle and fill Libra with joy over the smallest thing.

Birds of a feather do flock together, and birds are ruled by the air beneath their wings, just like Libra. Libra loves having a good bird around, because they are unique and not everybody has one. Once again you want a bird that is on the high end such as a cockatiel or a parakeet. The more rare the bird, the better. On the other hand, a white dove if you can find one is a peaceful bird that caters to Libra's harmonious side. If you are considering a high end bird as a pet, be sure that you do your research and equip your home before you invest. Libra prefers the vibrant colored birds unless the peace of a morning dove can be found.
