What You Need to Know About Scorpio, The Real Halloween Cat

What You Need to Know About Scorpio, The Real Halloween Cat by Layla Morgan Wilde.




As we near Halloween, there are classic images of black cats and witches everywhere. Halloween season is Scorpio season. full of spiky-furred spitfires with arched backs and glowing red eyes out for mischief and mayhem.  Are Scorpio cats really evil hellions? Very rarely. It’s the negative image I’ve tried hard to reverse with Black Cat awareness month and our Black Cats Tell All book.  There is no question some cats are a little feisty. Ask any tortie lover about the famous tortitude and they’ll regale you with stories. If any cat is going to more magical, mysterious and sultry, it’s a Scorpio. Somes call them witch’s cats and Halloween is like their month-long birthday.scorpio-cats


The wheel of the zodiac just spun into Scorpio on October 24th and stays there on Nov,22. Of the twelve astrological signs, there is no mistaking a Scorpio cat.  Those eyes! They are all about intensity, beginning with eyes that bore down to your soul. Don’t even think of trying to outstare them. There will be blood. Yours. Scorpio colors are midnight black and deep murky reds. Their coat can be any color of course but I tend to think of Scorpios as black, tuxies or torties. 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 in charge of everyone and everything in their household. Possessive, controlling 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 magical 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 may not tell all about their secrets.

Scorpio cats  will let you know when and where they want to be stroked, played with or announce dinner time 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.  Please note: any kittens currently available for adoption now @8weeks are not Scorpios but Virgo or Libras. You won’t find any Scorpio kitten for adoption until around Christmas.































I don’t recommend adopting any cats close to the hectic holiday season but how about a Scorpio cat print from my friend Saskia, an illustrator from the U.K. She does pet portraits is her distinctly unique style and has some cool Halloweenish cats but my favorites are her Zodicats Astrology Cats collectio

  1. Hi, I do believe this is a great blog. I stumbledupon it 😉 I will come back once again since I bookmarked it. Money and freedom is the greatest way to change, may you be rich and continue to guide others.

  2. Scorpio kitties rock… they are born to rule kingdoms and even da whole world ;O)
    our neighbor adopted a kitty from a shelter and the mama suggested them a black one… and it really happened, a black kitty moved in, her name is Petite Souris and she is guest on my blog tomorrow ;O)

  3. That Scorpio artwork by Sasykd is amazing! You find — and create — some of the most gorgeous art for your blog, and it always makes me smile to see what you use for illustrations.

  4. Well, none of us are Scorpio kitties.

    Just wanted to let you know that one of the links in the email we get for your blog is working now. Don’t know what was going on before…maybe it was just us. 🙂

  5. We luvs all the art work!
    We think that Izzy may be a Scorpio if not by birth then she missed the boat because you described her to a T.
    hugs and Kitty kisses

  6. Love the art work. Ched and Mao were born around March 20, so they’re Aries. Emma was born on May 1 or thereabouts, and years later, so was our son, so they’re Taurus. Neither Stephen nor Emma seemed very taurus-like.

  7. Our two inside kitties are Leos, but I have a feeling that friendly feral Sweetie may be a Scorpio! She’s mostly black, with curious white hairs sprinkled all over but you can only see them when you are up close. It’s her way or the highway, for sure!
