Buzzed Lists: It’s Raining Cats And Dogs

IT’S RAINING CATS AND DOGS

What is it about humans that compels us to have these little creatures in our lives? Depending on the individual, one way or another it probably all comes down to the need for company. It’s intriguing that some people will only have cats, while others would never have a cat and insist that they are “dog people.” Interesting, as well, that so many artists and groups would include some type of cat or dog in their name. Here are a few such artists, with recommended listening for each.
