As we've said before, people have turned to astrology for centuries seeking answers about life’s biggest questions — like “What dog should I get?” Listen, we can now admit that was a stretch. Now, cats on the other hand, that makes sense.
Astrology and cats just go together like tarot cards and beaded curtains. There is no animal more in tune with mysticism than cats- consort of witches, bringer of bad luck, builder of the Pyramids… Well, who knows how they were built!? What do we look like, historians?
