PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
Hark sensitive Piscean pussycats! The New Moon on March 14 brings a new outlook on your health and well-being. In felinese that means your oh-so tender feelings can be stroked if you play affectionate cat to that furry creature in your household or on the block. Don't forget to keep your human snug as bug, too. Purr-fect days: 12, 13. Human tip: Let kitty in your lap and coo soft words such as "Mommy (or Daddy) loves you."

ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
Until the Full Moon on March 28, let go of that pesky Sylvester the Cat attitude with anti-cat two or four-leggers. Play it cool, Ari. Just avoid catfights by leaping up on countertops and furniture and look down on you-know-who. The payoff: You'll get affection by the month's end. Purr-fect days: 14, 15. Human tip: Take the time to make sure all of your Spring plants are cat-safe.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
Ah, Taurean pusses…the good life is in your paws this month, especially around the Full Moon on March 28. But expect leftover winter blahs if you don't retreat cat-style. You know the drill: catnap in the sunshine; curl up on your master's lap. Be a c-a-t and savor every single moment. Then, on March 20 Spring Fever will bring you good cheer. Purr-fect days: 7, 13. Human tip: Consider buying kitty a cozy window perch to make Springtime bird watching a more enjoyable pastime.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21)
Uh-oh Geminian kitties. Trouble at paradise may turn your cat world into a human soap opera this month. Unfortunately, as Spring is sprung on March 20 your humans may hiss about business stuff. Ugh! Be the purring machine that you can be and look clueless. That way you'll stay out of the heat and they'll get the hint, and cool it. Purr-fect days: 19, 20. Human tip: Since your cat provides unconditional love it may be the month to get your cat green I.D. tags in the shape of a shamrock.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23)
The Easter Bunny comes early for you this month. That's right, during the New Moon on March 14 it's time to come out of your shell. Spring love is here Crabcats and it's yours for the snatching. Yes, it's sunny vibes for you so enjoy your warmhearted humans and pet pals. Meow! Purr-fect days: 22, 23. Human tip: Give Fluffy extra petting, cuddles and affirmations upon her request.

LEO (July 24 – August 23)
Marvelous Mars boost your feline position at home. If you're amid a multi-cat household you can expect being Top Cat. Or if you're the only feline embrace your regal role and savor getting spoiled to the max. That's what humans are for, right? Go ahead and demand their attention NOW. Purr-fect days: 24, 25. Human tip: Check out the health food store and see what type of all-natural edible treats are available for your beloved cat.

VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
It's sharing time for you Virgoan cats. Due to the New Moon on March 14 expect pet cooperation. While you're in the twosome spirit enjoy that St. Patrick's chow with the one you love. Then, try non-food ways (pre-Spring fat-burning cat-aerobics) to pamper your body and soul this month. Purr-fect days: 26, 27. Human tip: Make a regular cat playtime schedule and stick to it so you'll both get your feline-human bonding fix.

LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
Oh Dear, peace-loving pussycats it's going to be a hectic month. First, that pet or person that you have a crush on? Well, they may not be purr-fect (this may let you down oh-fussy puss). As Spring arrives on March 20, sticky situations may also upset your calm temperament. By month's end you may even lose your balance and throw a hissy fit. (Well, at least you'll clear the air!) Purr-fect days: 5, 29. Human tip: Try meditating with kitty on your lap and gently rub your finger on her neck.

SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
It's no surprise that you've got affection on the brain, Scorpy. The catch is, while you've got a serious case of early Spring Fever that cat (or dog) may not want to cuddle up to your loving feelings. Take it s-l-o-w. Around the New Moon on March 14 try using reverse psychology. Act like you aren't interested. Play with your toys or play with your human's head and see what the New Moon brings in. Purr-fect days: 2, 20. Human tip: Consider getting a cat dental checkup for you and your kitty's peace of mind.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
For your health's sake Sag, it's the month to renew your body and spirit. Seasonal allergies? Sneeze in front of your caregivers (three times a day should do the trick) and you'll get fixed up pronto! While you're on a health kick, eat less, play more. P.S. Indulge in extra R&R so you'll get that spring back in your pounce. Purr-fect days: 5, 28. Human tip: Make sure your first-aid kit is fully stocked for kitty in case of a Springtime mishap.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
Won't your humans ever let you be a lazy puss? If cat shows, grooming and vet visits are getting you down, be proactive, Cappie. Scamper to your favorite feline spot and give all those two-leggers your best "Back Off!" glare. After all, St. Patrick's Day on March 17 can overwhelm you. Ugh! Stay put till they get the hint that enough is enough. Purr-fect days: 7, 8. Human tip: Splurge on that Springtime state-of-the-art cat tree for your puss.

AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 19)
Got furballs in your home? You can expect pet squabbles till the Full Moon on March 28. Worse, loud spring cleaning (oh, those anal humans and their cat hair obsession!) will drive you up a wall. Best advice: Dart under the bed and chill out. Seek your own tranquil oasis. S-t-r-e-t-c-h. Take a deep breath (and another) to promote relaxation. Purr-fect Days: 9, 10. Human tip: Purchase a cat video with Springtime Mother Nature's chirping bird sounds.
