Pet was a band with a lead woman vocalist.

Lisa Papineau - vocals
Tyler Bates - guitar, backing vocals, bass
Alex LoCascio - drums, backing vocals

Pet's self titled album's Executive Producer was Tori Amos. The song, "Lil' Boots" was on the soundtrack for "The Crow: City of Angels". (IMHO the movie sucked though)

The only Pet album is filled with tormented music with cryptic lyrics.

The only album released by the band Pet was the self titled album in 1996. Now Lisa Papineau does solo projects.
'Pet' first came into use in 1508, when it was used as a term of endearment for a child--usually a spoiled one.
By 1539 it's meaning had expanded to include domestic animals--you could now have a pet child and a pet monkey.
In 1515 another 'pet' came into use, a verb this time. It was a modified form of the Italian petto, meaning 'to fart' (most likely this is an example of onomatopoeia). This meaning has since been dropped.
The reference to house-hold animals as pets developed into into another verb, meaning 'to fondle', or 'to stroke'. The most recent development took place in North America, where it's usage was expanded to include the fondeling of humans, specificaly a member of the opposit sex.

The 2000 album released from Fur Patrol, featuring Julia Deans's wonderful voice (call me a boy, but i go all squishy for a woman with the right voice).
