Sagittarius Pet Compatibility

Sagittarius is the Mutable Fire sign of the zodiac, also known as the wanderer. Typically Sagittarius pet compatibility is the least pet-friendly for this very reason. An animal that requires constant home care or walking is not going to do well with this sign who dislikes feeling tied down.

Sag prefers a self-sufficient pet – if they choose to take one in at all.

If you’re an Archer looking for a pet, you’ll be best served by something small. Conversely, if you have the resources to hire someone to take care of your pet when you’re out wandering the world, finding one that suits your personality is a bit easier.

What is the Best Pet for Sagittarius?


Because Sagittarius is hardly ever home, the best pet for Sag is a fish that can take care of itself outside of a once-a-day feeding. This is a very calming pet as well, and if you go this way, get an aquarium with an ever-present water flow to soothe you when the nights are quiet.

Sagittarius also is intrigued by the exotic, and as such, a goldfish simply won’t do. A fish from a faraway land will excite them because it feeds their big-picture nature and also doesn’t require much care.


Generally speaking, Fire signs prefer fast-moving pets, but not Sagittarius, who is hardly ever home. This makes a turtle another excellent pet for them, as this is a relatively low-maintenance and quiet animal that won’t disrupt the Sagittarius lifestyle. Turtles are also good omens for this philosophical sign.

Sagittarius will appreciate the slowed pace and perspective that turtle energy will bring into the home. They would be well served by creating a fenced-in section of their yard for their pet turtle or investing in an aquarium that their pet can enjoy. Freedom is also important to Sagittarius, and having a turtle will not compromise that.


Cats are an excellent choice for the Sagittarius that is a bit of a homebody or does not do much traveling. However, Sagittarius doesn’t generally do well with kittens and is better served to adopt more relaxed and set-in-their-ways older cats.

In addition, Sagittarius is philosophical enough to appreciate the psychic energy cats will bring into their home. An older cat from a shelter has the highest Sagittarius pet compatibility because this sign has no time or patience to train a kitten in the way they need.
