A cat, dog, and bummy cuddling together. Mutable Water sign Pisces are emotional creatures ruled by dreamy Neptune, giving them a sensitive and romantic air that they sprinkle into every relationship they have, even with their pets! For some Pisces, like Scorpio the fellow Water sign, their pets are their most important relationship. For this reason, the best pet compatibility for Pisces will be with cuddly and warm pets or fellow water dwellers that understand Pisces’ emotional currents.

Second to Scorpio, cats are the best friend to Pisces and this is primarily due to the psychic connection felines offer to Water signs. Pisces doesn't just own a cat, they instantly become a part of each other’s family. Pisces is a natural loner as well, but they too need love and attention. When the world fails them in that regard, their cat, or cats, will be what keeps them warm at night.

Pisces can look at their cat and know what they want and are thinking. Cats in turn respond to Pisces in a unique way, running to aid when tears are in play, or when drama is in the house. It’s in these moments Pisces will feel like their feline is the only friend they have, and thus kitty will have an undying loyalty from their human as a result.

Guinea Pig
It may seem like a strange animal for a Pisces to have, but guinea pigs are ideal for many reasons. Because Pisces is so loving, they often have more than one pet in the home, and a guinea pig is an ideal addition. Guinea pigs are great for Pisces who live in apartments or places where there’s not much room for animals.

One reason guinea pigs and Pisces get along so great is they both have an instinctive need and craving for attention. Guinea pigs love to play, something not many owners realize until they bring them home. This is a delight to Pisces, who will enjoy keeping their little friend entertained for hours on end.

Pisces is symbolized by the fish - so it’s only natural they’d become good fish owners. As a Water sign however, there are many layers and currents to Pisces and as such, a standard gold fish just will not do. A huge exotic fish pond in the yard will be built by Pisces, because they instinctively know what their marine friends need.

Pisces will also want fish on the artistic or exotic side, so large or brightly colored fish would be ideal. Pisces is likely one of the only zodiac signs not afraid to own and properly take care of exotics such as a piranha either. If you are a Pisces looking for a great companion, you’d do well with a fish in a way no other zodiac sign is capable.
