Maybe you think your dog likes to rock out to Led Zeppelin. Or you think your cat won't be so lonely if she listens to the Beatles. Perhaps you leave music on when you're out because you hope it makes your furry friends feel comfier while you're away at work. Or you just do it to mask the sound of the mail carrier so maybe — for once — the dog won't leap onto the couch and bark his fool head off.
If you leave music on for any of these reasons, you're not alone. Spotify says you're one of the 71 percent of pet owners who does so. Never one to let a demographic go un-serenaded, Spotify now has playlists just for those pets.
That's right. You can visit the Spotify for Pets page and even pick your species: dog, cat, hamster, bird or even iguana. Sorry snake lovers. There's no playlist for reptiles, or tarantulas or goldfish because, Spotify says, well, they don't have ears. Surely the case could be made for a bass-heavy playlist these guys could groove to using the vibrations in their tanks. Am I right?
Once you've picked your pet, you answer a few questions about their personality: playful or sleepy? Friendly or shy? Then the secret algorithm sauce creates a playlist your animal friend surely will love.
