If you're like me, you turn on the radio (or, in this day and age, your Spotify) when you leave your pets home alone. I usually turn on a local radio station (via TuneIn, natch), but I can totally get behind the new pet-centric playlist feature that Spotify has offered up for anyone with a treasured animal friend.

Heading over to Spotify's pet playlist web page, you'll see the option to choose what type of pet—dog, cat, hamster, lizard, or bird—you want to create a playlist for. You'll then be taken through a series of questions about your pet where you'll describe their personality with a few sliders. Is your puppy relaxed or energetic? Shy or friendly? Apathetic or curious?

Next up, you'll be able to upload a photo of your beloved furry, feather, or scaly friend and name them. Spotify will then pull your answers together, adding in your own account's preferences, and come up with a fun little playlist to play for your pet.

While I'm not certain my beagle, Gus, is a big fan of upbeat '60s rock, that's the playlist Spotify came up with. I'm certainly enjoying it. Considering the joy we call get from sharing photos of our household creatures, this could be a fun thing to share right along with them. If nothing else, your hamster will perhaps be a little less lonely (and much more hip) when you go to work each day.
