Pet is the debut album by New Zealand rock band, Fur Patrol, released in 2000.

Chart performance[edit]

Pet debuted on the New Zealand Albums Chart on 29 October 2000 at number fourteen, before peaking the next week at number seven. After six weeks in the chart, it slipped out of the top fifty. The release of the second single, "Lydia", prompted the album to re-enter the chart at number forty-four on 17 December 2000. Pet spent a total of thirty weeks in the chart.[1]

Singles[edit]

Pet spawned five singles. "Now" and "Holy", the album's first two singles, were not commercially successful, failing to appear on any record chart. The third single, "Lydia", went to number-one on the New Zealand Singles Chart on 24 January 2001, succeeding "Independent Women Part I" by Destiny's Child.[2] The song spent one week in the top spot,[nb 1] knocked off by the Backstreet Boys' "Shape of My Heart.[3] "Lydia" spent nineteen weeks in the chart.[4] "Andrew" peaked at number twenty-four on the singles chart, spending a total of fifteen weeks there,[5] while "Spinning a Line", the album's fifth and final single, spent three weeks in the New Zealand Singles Chart, peaking at number forty.[6]

  1. ^ No charts were published from 25 December 2001 to 13 January 2002. Therefore although there were no number-ones in this period, "Lydia" was number one for just one chart.
