While they are algorithmically curated, they are personalized based on your pet. You choose a pet, provide some information about the animal's personality, enter a name and photo, and then sit back and let Fido or Mr. Whiskers enjoy this new Tame Impala track.

Cats, dogs, and even hamsters are social creatures, and abandoning them without entertainment can sometimes feel cruel.

Luckily for these dog-loving folks, Swedish audio streaming company Spotify recently announced that it will be launching playlists especially for these doggos. After answering several questions about your pet's personality, Spotify uses an algorithm based on your responses as well as your personal music tastes to curate the flawless playlist for your pet.

The music streaming website picks pieces of music tailored to your pet's mood and demeanor for when they're home alone.

While music for pets isn't an exact science, we consulted with experts in the pet industry for the best approximation for what might work best for our featured animals.

"When dogs have appropriate auditory enrichment they may bark less, lie down and sleep more, and their body's are in a more relaxed physiological state". Now, Spotify has answered that question by making a playlist for Rocky-and is giving listeners a chance to create their own pets' playlists as well.

Named My Dog's Favourite Podcast, the podcast's aim is to keep your pooch calm when you're away from home.

It is voiced by British actors Ralph Ineson and Jessica Raine, whom your dog may remember from the HBO series "Game of Thrones" and BBC period drama "Call The Midwife", respectively.

What a great idea.
