Persian, European Shorthair or Siamese? Your zodiac sign can give an exciting clue as to which cat breed suits you best.
Certain character traits are typical of each zodiac sign. For example, people born under the zodiac sign of Leo are considered to be particularly courageous and independent. These typical characteristics make it possible to assign a cat breed to your own zodiac sign.
