In order to break this down, we must identify the major difference in cats and dogs.

Dogs are known for their extreme loyalty to their owners and desire to be around members of their pack (or family).

This is why many reports say that people who are more extroverted are more likely to be dog lovers because they identify with the dog’s outgoing nature and playfulness.

Cats are a bit different, which is why they appeal to certain animal-loving zodiac signs.

Cats are known for their intelligence, independence, and curiosity.

They often like being alone and go throughout their day with or without you.


People who are introverted and or naturally curious are more likely to be cat lovers due to this.

When it comes to zodiacs, almost all of the signs show these traits but there are a few who can show a certain preference based on their horoscope personalities.

Now, of course, this is just a prediction based on the personalities of the zodiac signs.

Any zodiac can like both animals or neither but it’s always fun to connect the dots using our knowledge of astrology.

Here's what type of animal zodiac sign prefers, and whether or not a certain horoscope is a cat or dog person when it comes to having a pet, per astrology:
