Question  How much time do you spend on your pets daily?
Like the title said. How much time do you (currently) spend on your pets every day? (Yes, on all of them).

Currently I only have fish, and I would spend up to 30 minutes on them every day when I am not doing the maintenance. Feeding does not take more than 2 minutes daily. So majority of the time I spent is just for watching them. It is said that watching an aquarium can stabilize the mood and blood pressure. I can feel it! Big Grin
During the weekend, I do 30% water change to all my 4 tanks, which would take me less than one hour for that. Every two months or so, I clean my canister filter within 20 minutes.
There are other occasions where I need to do a little gardening in my aquariums, because 3 of them are planted.

When I had birds during my childhood, I would spend average 1 hour on them daily. Feeding, playing with them, or at least I thought I was playing with them haha.

RE: How much time do you spend on your pets daily?
I have three cats and a dog. Between feeding, cat boxes, playing with, walking, grooming 3 hours is a guess, maybe not high enough. As they are all indoor pets they get talked to and the passing stroke even when the focus is not on them 100%.
