If You're A Gemini, This Is The Perfect Pet For You

Geminis can get a bad rap. They are often thought of as being "two-faced" and even "two-timing," per Vice, but there's so much more to Geminis than their dual nature.

The fun-loving air sign, which falls between May 21 and June 20, has numerous good traits. For starters, they are versatile, naturally curious, and easily adaptable (via Astrology Zodiac Signs). While their child-like disposition and unpredictable behavior may not gel well with everyone, one of the best things about Gemini is that they are always up for anything. They enjoy meeting people and delving into new situations.

Since astrology signs are so unique, some people enjoy looking to the stars to find who has good compatibility as the perfect mate or best friend. Part of the appeal of studying the zodiac is finding the astrological reasons for why you like what you do, or simply getting guidance as to the best song or the perfect house plant for you. Likewise, if you're looking for the perfect pet, your zodiac sign can point you in the right direction.

Here's what pet you should get if you're a Gemini

There's probably no better pet to complement Gemini's best and worst traits than one that is communicative and interesting. For this reason and more, Reader's Digest suggests a parrot for those under this star sign.

Parrots are versatile, curious creatures that require a lot of mental and physical stimulation. They squawk for nearly an hour each day, showcasing their chatty nature (via PetsRadar). In addition, parrots need to be released from their cage daily to spread their wings. If they don't receive this time, they will squawk loudly to gain the attention of their owner. Plus, Gemini is an air sign, so it only makes sense that their perfect pet is a bird, right?

Just in line with a Gemini's inquisitive nature, when given training and positive reinforcement, many parrots can be trained to do tricks and talk (via Slate). They are very intelligent animals and can provide daily entertainment and interaction. Boasting a long lifespan, parrots live anywhere from 10 to 60 years, so they will be around for a long time to enthrall witty Geminis.
