Pets should go to sleep at night. I suggest they sleep at the foot of the bed of a random villager each night. Or we might craft a pet basket and place it in the house, so they can sleep there.
Would be even nicer if they formed bonds with certain villagers (and other pets?) and slept (preferentially) with them. Love the pet basket idea as well!
The pet basket idea is nice (as is ownership etc)… but shouldn’t aren’t at least some of these animals nocturnal by nature?
I suggest also that petting their animal might give a slight moral boost to the owner.
My pets do sleep, but they sleep during the middle of the day.
I love the idea of crafting pet baskets and toys and allowing villagers to interact with them
