A “Frank the cat” playlist (plus Spotify links!)

New year, new roommate. Frank is a ticked tabby whom I met in the West End. Shouts out to Animal Advocates for their rescue work and for letting Frank adopt me. To commemorate, I put together a “Frank the Cat” playlist. There’s some of the obvious cat-centric cuts, as well as some potentially glaring omissions (David Bowie’s titular track from Cat People is a great song, but the feline focus is rather obscure; “Everybody Wants to be a Cat” is a banger, but disqualified for problematic cultural depictions). The playlist is rounded out by other songs about human-animal connections with other furry friends, fowl, and fish (Fun fact: I only recently learned that the Martha from “Martha My Dear” is a dog).

Here’s a link to a YouTube playlist of the songs, and the track listing is below. Also, my sister Katey took the time and effort to create Spotify playlists of my previous compilations. Thanks to Katey, and those links are below!
