HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AQUARIUS!
With your affectionate and straight-forward personality, you're not only completely likable, but highly intelligent. You also are adaptable and march to the purr of a different drummer. Amazing Aquarius, born under the 11th sign of the Zodiac, you flaunt your cat-like independence indoors--and outdoors (if you can escape). Yep, you've got that wild cat spirit purr-fected to a T. What makes you the cat's meow: Like a typical uninhibited feline, Water Bearers can be creative, imaginative and oh-so whimsical. Indeed, you can keep up with an agile cat (or two), but you manage to s-l-o-w down to lend a paw to your human companions, too.
What makes you catty: Let's face it, cat shows or silly tricks (ugh!) bore both pleasure-seeking Garfield and you. And boring people or pets can trigger your aloofness and "fight or flight" response. After all, life is too much fun to be trapped, right?
Purr-fect matches: Other intelligent and oh-so chatty air signs (like Aquarius, Gemini and Libra) can keep you a contented pussycat 24/7.
