Hourly actions are randomized pet actions that take place every time the player runs house hours. For example, if the user's pets are hungry, they may consume a random edible item. Depending on how the player raises his pets, they may have different inclinations.
Professions are hourly actions that grant experience points for various different stats. The professions can be divided in 2 groups: collecting and crafting. In general, the more the pet attempts to practice a profession, the better he will become at it. The pet's equipped item has a major influence on the pet's decision on which profession to practice.
Hourly actions are documented in logs which can be accessed by clicking the notepad icon next to the user's pet's level in the house.
During a collecting profession, the pet finds resources directly from a location. The focus of the collecting professions is to gather food and materials which can be eaten and/or used for crafting professions. For example, a pet may gather a Green Leaf which can then either be eaten or used to craft a Leaf Charm Necklace.

- Main article: Thieving

During a crafting profession, the pet uses one or more items to create a new item. A crafting profession often requires a variety of ingredients obtained from collecting actions, and this can make a crafting profession expensive to practice if the player's pets aren't collecting their own materials.
There are 2 different crafting professions in the game:
- Main article: Crafting
When crafting, the pet uses materials in the house to create a new item.
- Main article: Cooking
