The prowler, the Vietnamese year of the cat symbolizes sensitivity, gentleness and kindness. But, be careful, for cats can be like kittens, too. People born in the Vietnamese horoscope years: 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, and 1999 are Cats.

Cat Type-ing

There are different kinds of cats in the Vietnamese horoscope. There is the Metal Cat born in 1951 and 2011 and they tend to be resilient, determined and strong. Their intensity is unparalleled by any other type of cat.Those born in 1903 and 1963 are called water cats and are inclined to be peace makers, cool and easy going. Unfortunately, their kind and supportive nature is most often abused and taken advantage of.

Wood Cats brought into existence on the years 1915 and 1975 are characteristically giving and generous, to the point of self sacrifice. Unknowingly, they often very vulnerable to opportunistic and unscrupulous people.

Cats are naturally attentive and hospitable because they do not like unpredictable and unsettled situations; they have the tendency to feel contrived in promoting a comfortable and peaceful atmosphere.

Cats pay great attention to detail. They always get anxious when everything is in chaos. They gravitate towards safe and conservative decisions; thus missing good opportunities in life. Sentimental and compassionate, cats wear their hearts on their sleeves. As a result of being empathetic, cats make great friends.

Career Cat

A Cat has great career possibilities. Their compassionate attitude will tender them as effective therapists, actors and doctors. Evoking great emotion, they could also become effective administrators, public relations people, writers, publishers, actors and fashion designers. Ambitious, talented and articulate, a cat has excellent business and communication skills.

The Cat and the Heart

A person spends his or her whole life looking for fulfillment and, more often than not, love is always a factor of this fulfillment. It is not surprising that cats are very sexy lovers and partners. Languid, seductive and purring, this type of person is unselfish in relationships. However, this increase their risk of being in unhealthy relationships.

It is essential that a Vietnamese zodiac cat find a partner who will not take advantage of its nature. A cat needs a partner who can build an atmosphere that is full of harmony, peace and, most of all, love.

The goat and the cat are highly compatible zodiac animals in the Vietnamese horoscope. Their gentle and nurturing natures complement each other perfectly. Both have good ears for listening; so they can comfort each other in rough times. The cat and the goat like security and comfort. This commonality will give them a sense of direction — a goal to work on and look forward to.

Another complementary partner is the dog. A dog’s loyalty and love is the right balance for the cat’s sincerity and wisdom.

Cat’s got Your Tongue?

The most dangerous thing for a cat is stress. They cannot cope very well as they usually keep their heartaches bottled up inside; so the cat must be more open, especially about his or her personal relationships for this Vietnamese horoscope year.

    Hi!

    I’m a Metal Cat, born in 1951.
    The characteristics that are presented in this text are pretty accurate, I must say. Good job!

    However, the webmaster is not doing his/her job very well, I’m afraid. The links aren’t working at all on this page, it seems!

    Hope the rest of this Cat year will speed up development of the human race!

    Questions…
    1)If I am born in mid January of 1976, am I a Cat or a Dragon?
    2)It says that Cats are very compatible with Sheep… Where is the Sheep? If you meant Goat, then why there is not Cat in Goat’s compatibilities?
    Thank you.

    I’m a cat as well. (A wood cat I think). That pretty cool. When I was a kid, I thought dog was cat’s enemy. But now I know they are compatible. This Vietnamese zodiac sort of related to Chinese Zodiac.
