Congratulations to Allison Eggleton and her wonderful snowy white, one-year-old cat, Chester for being our Astrocat of the month. Chester was born on the 19th December 2016, so his star sign is Sagittarius and on the day he was born, Venus was in Capricorn (making him loyal, loving, and perhaps a bit bossy) whilst Mars was in Aquarius (giving him his own way of looking at the world). Yes, Chester is a very special cat.
Does your cat always look on the bright side? Does his optimism border on the arrogantly misguided? Is he of such a roving nature that you've occasionally considered the possibility of an escape-proof back garden? Does he like horses? Then rest assured that you're sharing your living space with an outrageously rumbustious Sagittarius.
Your adventurous, ever-youthful pal is travel crazy. He even enjoys hitching a ride in a bicycle basket and, if you go for a keep-fit jog, he'll keep pace beside you in comradley style.
For a cat, he's remarkably straightforward and most of the time, you can read him like a book. If he ever goes missing for a spell or his behaviour goes off the rails, the cause is most probably a tangled love-life - nothing else upsets this boy. His self-esteem is almost undentable - and he doesn't even mind too much if you find his blunders and missed footings a bit of a joke. With his wide, curly mouth and rumbling purr, he seems to enjoy a laugh himself. He likes being near people and is forever rearing up on his hind legs - or leaping onto unsuspecting visitors' heads - trying to be nearer their level.
He is relentlessly matey - even to those who would rather he keep his hairy distance. But every now and then, he'll take himself off on a little holiday, returning with a mysterious smile. Just to show that he's a free agent at heart.
Actually, despite his wanderlust and taste for country living, he'd hate the paw-to-mouth existence of a farmcat or town feral because he lives for mealtimes and eats enormously. Full of trust and resilience (he never learns from a mistake, but no matter), he never quite graduates beyond his kittenish phase.
You'll usually find him waiting for you to come home, sitting on the front doormat.
