Best Independent Pets?


#1

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 ?


#2

Reptiles and arachnids.


#3

Pet rock.


#4

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


#5

Bring out the Gimp.

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


#6

Dead ones.


#7

turtle


#8

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

DB, I love the turtle suggestion.


#9

Cats ftw


#10

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


#11

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


#12

Women.

Wait, never mind. Maybe a turtle?

Edit: I should really start reading threads.


#13

I think I am the only one who laughed ID.


#14

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


#15

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


#16

Old enough to have forgotten any ways.

A fucking gramps thread is it?


#17

Easily 35+


#18

lol that pic reminded me of this.


#19

Four, if you get hairless gimps.


#20

vagina squirrels.
