Astro Kitty -The Cancerian Cat
Cats share many of the astrological characteristics of zodiac signs as humans do. The sign of Cancer is from June 22 to July 22 is ruled by the moon, it’s element is water and it’s symbol, the crab. For sixteen years I shared my life with the sweetest Cancerian Siamese cat, but like all the zodiac signs there are two sides to their purrsonality. Cancerian kitties like other the water signs of Pisces and Scorpio are sensitive and intuitive.
All cats have mystical side to them but a Cancer almost knows what you’re thinking before you do and will be purring up a storm if it’s about food or treats. They love good food but watch the catnip before the full moon, or you’ll have loony moon cat on your hands. Just as the moon has many phases, crab cats’ moods can change on a silvery dime. One minute, they’re cuddly lovebugs, the next minute, they’re off with a swish of their tails to sulk.
They will know the instant plans are made for a vacation or a trip to the vet. Don’t try to hide it. Talk to them calmly about what’s happening in detail. They’re super psychic sponges and will mirror your anxiety, so stay calm. They hate change more than other cats. A cat sitter would preferable to boarding and mobile vet who makes house calls is ideal.
The best way to make them less moody and more happy is to give them consistency and routine. These homebodies want the same schedule in the same cozy house forever. Home is everything to them. They love all boxes except moving boxes. They are the least likely to roam or seek adventure down the block. They like soft blankets, cozy baskets where they can hide like crabs under their shell when things get too hectic or noisy.
There’s a certain roundness about them even if not overweight. Their digestion can be sensitive, so watch their diet. All cats benefit from probiotics for their digestion for but especially Cancerians. Place their food and water in a quiet, private area. Ruled by water, they love drinking fountains, splashing in water faucets and the whoosh of a toilet if it’s not too loud; they’re sensitive to noise. They will even tolerate baths.
Any Moon Cat would love the stainless steel Drinkwell 360 drinking fountain. We’re having a giveaway for two! This giveaway has ended.
Cancerian creatures of the night, they love skulking and meowing under a moonlit night or a safer choice, sitting by a window. Nurturing and maternal, they are especially fertile. All the more reason to keep them spayed/neutered and indoors at night.
Usually sweet and good natured, they tend to be conflict-avoidant, good with kids, the ill and the elderly. Being as sensitive as they are, don’t you dare laugh at them. They can be clingy and will lash out or be crabby if not treated well. These soulful crab cats, if socialized early will be affectionate companions for many moons.
What a great post. We don’t know if any of us are Cancer kitties; though, we know some of us are crabby kitties. MOL. Mom’s going to check our records, but she told us she’s pretty sure none of us are this sign. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
LOL Sparkle. This sure fits my two cancerian cats to a tee.

MOL at Sparkle!!! Thanks for the Astro resdings for the kitties they are so much fun! Luvs Skeeter and Izzy and the Feral Gang >^..^<
so like our long-lost Cancer furriend, Sigourney, who was mostly a crabby little thing, but when the babies started arriving, turned into a total nurse maid – often waking me at night before the baby starting crying. She was that good. She was a big worry wart about them, constantly under my feet or on the changing table – ever watchful to make sure I didn’t make some kind of “mistake.” She was the perfect cat for the new mom. I miss her.
Angel Graphite fit so many of these traits. Except for the round and moody things. He was skinny and a 24/7 love bug. Maybe he was a Cancerian cat (we don’t really know, since I adopted him when he was already a senior).
How very interesting!!
I missed the post for kitties born on March 20. Do you have an archive for older posts? I’d love to see what it has to say about my 2 Abysinnian boys (Mungogerrie and Rumpleteaser.)

Betty, there is an archive. Search the categories box at the bottom of the page, click on kitty astrology.
Cancerian kitties sound very sweet and sensitive. I see some kitties on blogs who take bath or love to play with water. I’m interested to know if they are Cancerian kitties 🙂
I particularly enjoyed this because my Angel Bobo was a Cancerian cat. Most of what you posted (the vast majority) was sooooooo true about him! His psychic abilities (especially pertaining to me) were incredible. He is deeply missed.

My birthday is June 24, and hence a Cancerian cat. There are actually two different Cancerian body types – the rounded one and the angular one, and I am the latter (my Cancer-born human with her lean frame but round face and, um, other parts, is a little of both). Also, I am very picky about food and have digestive issues, which is the reverse side of most food-oriented Cancer kitties. One way I am not like most Cancerian kitties is the moodiness thing – I am totally NOT moody! At all. Do not ask my human to verify this because she will lie!
