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.

Women.

Wait, never mind. Maybe a turtle?

Edit: I should really start reading threads.
