Virgo is the Mutable Earth Sign, and has a tendency to err on the fussy side. Virgo is the clean freak of the zodiac, and of all zodiac signs, can not handle clutter or chaos. Animals with a tendency to misbehave or create havoc are not the kind of animals that Virgo enjoys. Virgo also has a tendency to be allergic, a trait that is part of their picky personality. There are few pets that Virgo will fall in love with, but once they do, that animal friend will have a friend for life with loyal and true Virgo.

Fish are the best pet for Virgo, because they are low maintenance, low on allergens, and won't make a big mess. Virgo has a scientific and analytic mind, and won't go small with a fish. Virgo will be more happy with a state of the art marina in their home, and they will spend a lot of time and money organizing it, and even brag about it to their friends. One fish is likely not ideal, Virgo will want many around to keep them company.

Hamsters are very good for Virgo like they are for Cancer for all of the same reasons. Hamsters have an intelligence, and they don't fuss back with Virgo like a cat or a dog would. Hamsters will basically do whatever Virgo wants them to do, which, isn't much. A little bit of work is involved here to keep the hamster home clean and happy, but Virgo's attention to detail will be right on top of that. What Virgo will love about hamster is that this is a no muss no fuss relationship, with plenty of company and entertainment to keep them both happy for hours on end.

A ferret is a great pet for Virgo despite the amount of maintenance required. Ferrets are great for any of the mutable signs, because they are very adaptable to their environments. Ferrets are also unique, which is what Virgo loves most about them. Virgo is cut from a different cloth and doesn't like having the same pet everyone else does. Ferrets also require a lot of research and intellectual preparation, and this is something that Virgo was made for. A ferret would make Virgo proud, and serves as the perfect companion for the hermit Virgo who often prefers to be alone.
