Cancer Pet Compatibility

Symbols that look like sideways apostrophes are stacked on one another.

Cancer is the Cardinal Water sign and, as such, the domestic center when it comes to the zodiac signs. Cancer is always very busy making sure the homefront is in tip-top shape and is usually found in the kitchen. So when it comes to Cancer pet compatibility, smaller animals that cater to their emotional needs are perfect for this Water sign.

What is the Best Pet for Cancer?


A hamster makes an ideal pet for Cancer because they’re small and can be held in the hand. This sign likes bringing things they love close to them, which is very easy to do with hamsters. Hamsters are very low maintenance, another appealing trait for Cancer.

For the same reason, smaller animals like guinea pigs do very well with Cancer. These small animals also have a brain that stimulates this sign occasionally, and there is an unpredictability about these small animals that Cancer really enjoys.


Dogs are also high on the list of Cancer pet compatibility because of their loyalty and emotional capacity.

Cancer can also be a bit on the moody side, and dogs have the tenacity to be loving of their owners no matter what their emotional temperature. Dogs will put up with pretty much anything that isn’t unkind and will adapt easily to their changing moods.

For the Cancer with a big family, a larger dog that likes to play and hang out with the gang is ideal. For an individual on their own, a smaller dog they can fit in their purse and take shopping with them or to the park will be one that keeps Cancer tickled for years.


As the Cardinal Water sign, Cancer is very busy in the home. Low-maintenance pets that won’t be affected by their turbulent moods are ideal for Cancer. Fish are great for Cancer because they share the same energy and are very low maintenance.

Whether Cancer invests in a huge aquarium or has a simple bowl on their desk with a goldfish does not matter. A fish will fascinate Cancer to no end.
