Best Independent Pets?


So I work 10-12 hours a day and I lift 4-6 times a week.

I was wondering what types of pets are good at being independent and receiving like 10 minutes a day of love.

I already kept a budgy, a fish and a cat. I'm allergic to cats.

I heard dogs are really co-dependent and need oodles of attention. Is there anything non-feline, non-aquatic, non-avian out there ?


Reptiles and arachnids.


Pet rock.


Go on Craigslist and pick up one of those guys who wants to be locked up in your basement/attic/walk-in closet.


Bring out the Gimp.

Why do you need another pet if you only have such minimal time for them now?


Dead ones.




Why do anything, then? In my view the futility of life is what gives it beauty.

DB, I love the turtle suggestion.


Cats ftw


Two hairless cats. They will occupy one another, not give you allergy problems, and freak out chicks.


Three positive traits also shared by Gimps from Craigslist, if I may say.



Wait, never mind. Maybe a turtle?

Edit: I should really start reading threads.


I think I am the only one who laughed ID.


I was actually going to post this but ID beat me too it.


How old do you have to be to appreciate the cultural reference? 35+?


Old enough to have forgotten any ways.

A fucking gramps thread is it?


Easily 35+


lol that pic reminded me of this.


Four, if you get hairless gimps.


vagina squirrels.
