The Scorpion Cat

October 24 - November 22

The Scorpio Cat is secretive, glamorous, and warm. Scorpio cats are also intense, emotional, and possessive. They tend to overplay and want everthing to be purrfect. They have tremendous staying power and will see any matter through to the bitter end, regardless of sacrifice. They despise weakness in themselves or others. On the other hand, they are generous and compassionate and will help the undercat. They can express themselves really well. They are highly secretive and extremely intuitive with eyes that are penetrating and magnetic. They are a loyal friend or a vehement enemy. They are powerful and intense where feelings are concerned and have the ability to poison themselves through their own emotional vindictiveness. They push themselves to the limit, only to recuperate rapidly and begin the whole process again. These cats don't like to attract attention and are very cautious in all things. They immerse themselves in a deed with total concentration - until the can opener is heard. The Scorpio Cat will plot revenge when mad at you, so never turn your back on one.

The Male Scorpio Cat is persuasive and will never admit defeat. He prefers to be in control at all times. In everything he does, he gives one hundred percent and expects the same in return. Life is a competitive game to him. Revenge and jealousy are just two of the things that will surface if he thinks he isn't winning.

The Female Scorpio Cat has no trouble attracting attention. She will use her feline magnetism and hypnotic eyes to dazzle and captivate any human's heart. She has tremendous energy and a temper that can be explosive. She can be extremely demanding and lacks patience. She will be loyal and true blue as long as you keep her happy.

Scorpio is a water and fixed sign ruled by the planets Mars and Pluto. The Scorpio color is blood red.

The animal of sensuous magnetism. The Scorpio cat is intense, passionate, and mysterious. Scorpios have strong desires and expect to get what they want. They will size up a situation instantly, and they can seduce you into doing whatever they want and have you think it was your idea. In fact, they can push your buttons so expertly that you will enjoy being manipulated. But don't cross swords with them - you are sure to lose!

If you ever wondered about declawing your cat when it attacked you suddenly from behind the sofa you probably have a Scorpio cat (or one with a few Scorpio planets). This is the cat that will make a mess in your bed if you anger it or in some way offend it. You might not even know what you did but if you are single and bring someone over to spend the night, you may find yourself in some real trouble. This cat will relate well to deep colors for his/her pillow or bed in red or burgundy. A few tidbits of shrimp or tuna may get you a reprieve but this cat never forgets if you have insulted it so never forget to say hello when you get home or good bye when you leave.

The Scorpio Cat is determined and focused. Whether it's a mouse that needs to be chased or a sunbeam that needs to be laid in, the Scorpio cat will perform the task with unrelenting resolve. Scorpio cats are also passionate and they enjoy everything they do. They are as intense playing and having fun as they are giving themselves a bath. They will focus on whatever they are doing or on an object of their desire with unbroken concentration, or until they hear a tuna can in the opener.

Scorpio: The Cat's Pajamas

The Scorpio Cat is a powerful cat with more than a mere sting in his or her tail. This resourceful and intelligent feline will delight in organizing things and people, finding the normal business of the domestic cat to be boring and mundane. Determination is the guiding force of the Scorpio Cat...and it is indeed a force to be reckoned with. Felines in general are never easy to fathom and this particular feline is akin to a never-ending pit, being secretive, self-controlled and devious. Deep inside (if the owner is ever able to delve that far), the Scorpio Cat is truly a rather mixed-up cat, desperately seeking love and security.

A Scorpio Cat may usually be recognized by a muscular body and beautiful eyes...the ideal specimen being one with jet-black fur and eyes of deep emerald green. However, the most notable feature will be the mask of imperturbability. Later in life, this feline stands out from the rest by his or her waddling walk...the result of over-eating...and often has bow legs. Normally healthy, when this cat does become poorly, then he or she will be extremely ill. Under such circumstances, the Scorpio Cat expects (and usually receives) all the tender, loving care due to such a sick member of the family. At the first sign of ill health (often a dry nose and labored breathing), even if it is suspected that this feline is malingering yet again, it is vital to book him or her into intensive care at the vet's office. If this is not done, then the Scorpio Cat considers the owner to be a failure who did not respond as expected. It will take a very long time for the Scorpio Cat to forgive this and the damaged relationship may never be repaired.

The Scorpio Cat will always remain a puzzle to the family...never where an owner thinks he or she might be...never doing what he or she should be doing. This is all a game to the Scorpio Cat...fooling the owner and leaving his or her human guessing. However, any owner of this feline will be in dire trouble if he or she guesses wrong. When this cat is cold, then he or she fully expects that the heating should be turned on. But, the Scorpio Cat will not hover by a radiator and shiver...he or she is far more likely to sit by the refrigerator, washing his or her paws. If the owner offers food and not heat then, in the eyes of the Scorpio Cat, that owner has failed. This all comes about because the Scorpio Cat finds it well-night impossible to express true feelings. Conversely, he or she will be deeply intuitive of others where feelings are concerned, possessing the gift of empathy and the ability to read emotions. This feline senses when an owner desires companionship and when he or she would rather be left alone.

The Scorpio Cat is always strangely drawn to those unfortunate humans who are not fond of cats. If such an individual is invited into the home and tries to banish the Scorpio Cat, it will fail to work. This feline somehow manages to get into the room and insists on paying the visitor in question an abundance of attention...sitting on the guest or rubbing against the guest, or dribbling all over them. However, at the end of the day, the Scorpio Cat is basically a one-person cat. He or she will single out a member of the family with whom to bond and the rest will be virtually ignored. This feline does become genuinely attached, but in a rather aloof sort of way...offering companionship in return for a high standard of living. The Scorpio Cat likes to crawl around inside of objects...such as boxes and cabinets...and, being a born hunter, adores being outside.

A Scorpio Cat usually does best with a Scorpio owner. However, a native of Cancer would also a good choice, despite the fact that both are strong-minded, tenacious and complex. The next best owner would likley be a Pisces subject, although such an owner would need to be careful lest his or her "watery" instincts add further confusion to the Scorpio Cat's inclinations. Most owners of Scorpio Cats tend to develop a special telepathic bond with this mysterious feline. The Scorpio Cat always seems to know just what his or her human is thinking, easily senses danger, and will arrive for dinner just moments before being called. If there is a death in the family, then the Scorpio Cat is likely to be the first to know. This feline is the sacred cat which was revered by the Egyptians. Strange and arcane, the Scorpio Cat brings luck and protection to his or her owner. In short, the Scorpio Cat is pure magic.

The ideal Scorpio cat is jet black with deep emerald eyes for this is the zodiac sign that governs the occult. Even if you're not a witch yourself, you will nonetheless have a special telepathic bond with your mysterious Scorpio. She'll know what your thinking, will sense danger and come for dinner just moments before you call her. If there's a death in the family your cat will be the first to know. The Scorpio cat is the sacred cat revered by the Egyptians. She is strange and arcane but will bring you luck and protection. She is magic.

Your cat has piercing eyes that are almost hypnotic. Their steady gaze can make you feel nervous and ill at east - they'll out stare you every time. Even when they are quiet you feel an electric vitality about them. They have an inner strength and always seem in control.

They also have a giant ego and excessive pride - believes they can accomplish anything. They wear an expression of indifference, but look deeply into their eyes and you see strong emotions flowing. They are thinking all the time on how to keep control of you.

When you injure their pride or dignity, their revenge will be subtle and well thought out. They are very mysterious, seem to actually have ESP. They seem to know when you are going to do something and if they don't approve will try to impede you.

Are very curious, so it is imperative that you keep important items under lock and key that they would find fascinating. They will hunt in drawers and closets looking for soft and fluffy items that they will use in their beds or just hide from you. They are not being bad, just nosey and have these urges to poke into everything.

Intensely loyal, will lay down their lives for a loved one. Dedicated to family and fiercely protective of children. Will leap instinctively to protect a loved one. Very possessive, will resent a new member in the family for a while, however, once accepted they will receive the same undying loyalty. They will know when you are sick and be very concerned and caring. When you feel back or depressed you will receive a soft nudge and look that says "It's OK I'm here."

They have an indomitable spirit, which should be nurtured to reach their full potential as a loyal and loving pet. They respect strength - a firm and no and strong eye contact will do the trick. Do not falter. Has an uncanny ability to find things - like a detective - will find that lost sock and come dragging it to you. When they want something they will fix those hypnotic eyes on you until they get you to obey.

Has a great need for a hiding place all their own - a little private place.
