The wheel of the zodiac spins into Scorpio on October 24th. Of the twelve astrological signs, there is no mistaking a Scorpio cat. They are all about intensity, beginning with eyes that bore down to your soul. Don’t even think of trying to out stare them. There will be blood. Yours. Scorpio colors are midnight black and deep murky reds. Their element is water and they enjoy fountains and dripping taps. The old adage: Still waters run deep, fits them purrfectly.
These passionate felines ooze sensuality even after being neutered and spayed (which we recommend doing early). You’ll find them luxuriating every muscle in sun puddles and like having their slinky bodies stroked, but they call the shots. They like to be charge of everyone and everything in their household. Possessive and jealous, they tend to be loyal, one-person cats. If you are that lucky person, you will happily do their bidding, having fallen under their magic spell. The mysterious Scorpio cat sits Sphinx-like and silent exuding a mystical aura. You can safely share your deepest secrets with these inscrutable creatures but don’t expect them to share theirs.
They will let you know when they want petting, playing or their dinner with the look, their paw tapping or tail wrapped around your ankle or wrist. Clever and cunning, they love playing “ambush” and other prey games but never use your fingers or toes or you’ll be the loser in that game. Long wand or fishing pole-type toys work best.
Scorpio kitties need a place of their own to nap in, ideally with nooks or crannies for privacy. Be sure to provide several places to sharpen their magnificent claws or they will shred the sofa and your favorite sweaters to smithereens.
