I discovered you can take your cat to work...
Assuming it's a glitch, my Sim was holding my kitten at the time the carpool arrived. He changed into his work clothes (still holding the kitten), walked outside (still holding the kitten), got in the car (still holding the kitten), and off he went (guess what? Still holding the kitten!)
A dog can laugh at another dog/sim...
When a sim is relaxing on the bed, he can ask a dog/wolf (don't know for cats) to join the sim... There are no further options when relaxing though... I think it's cute, it looked like the wolf was holding guard near the sim!
Snapdragons appear to be cumulative. (ok,I'm cheap. I've been playing OFB for 2 months now, and just now got someone who could make them to sell.) I had 6 on display, and the only motive which was dropping much at all was energy. After all but the last 2 were sold, motives were dropping faster. Either that, or they had finally hit a critical line and the number of flowers had nothing to do with it. But I am still going to fill my house with snapdragons from now on.
I just found out there is a new LW for family sims. I don't know if it's just for same sex couples or not but it is 'Raise 20 Puppies or Kittens' [It's the first time i got it and like seeing as the couple i found out is same sex so yer]
It's a feature of University, in order to get the graduates get back home. If you don't have Uni, you don't have the feature. Sorry
The only EP I have is OFB and I have it. I wonder if it comes automatically with NL, too? Super useful though. I'm going to make an elderly "I'm bored with you" sims house one of these days. :D
Edit: Oh, and something I saw for the first time yesterday! A want for "Have 20 grandchildren" worth 30,000 aspiration. The sim in question's LTW is to marry off 6 children, but even that's only worth 25,000 asp.
I discovered that Sarah the dog's puppies are hideous abominations.
Yes they are! She gave birth to the three I am assuming she was already pregnant with, and they are all white ugly things. Obviously only have access to her DNA (like with Brandi Broke's baby) and now my adoption pool is full of ugly dogs.
I just got that 20 puppies and kittens want too. My first Pet want, so I feel compelled to fill it, despite it being a nightmare for my legacy family. At least they already had a cat I was considering for breeding.
that my dog has a obsession with yowling at the tv
Yeah, I've noticed my cats and dogs don't seem to like the television or the stereo. I think maybe they just don't like the noises. You should also make sure if you put a pet's bed in the living room or a room with a tv or stereo that while the pet is sleeping the tv/stereo stay turned off so they can get their rest (just like sims wake up when a tv/stereo in the room is on). My cat meows at the stereo and my dog howls at the tv. I guess the animals just don't like all that noise.

I'm beginning to think maybe each time a new pack comes out, maybe some of the good interactions that were in the one before it may be added to it too.
Akronborn, maybe the merge families thing will work for you. Just try from the neighborhood view to move a sim or pet into a household that already has sims living in it. I think this feature must also come with pets because they give you some pre-made pets in the lots section of the neighborhood view where your homeless pre-made sims are, and I read in the gamebook that pets cannot live on a lot by theirselves, therefore, it would make sense to think that they put that interaction into the pets game in order to be able to play those pets that come in the lots and families bins. Also, there is nothing in there that says you HAVE to create Sims and pets at the same time - they let you just make the pets and those are placed in the lots and family bins, so how else is one going to be able to get them into a home with sims unless you can merge them?
Depends on the vampire. But the Grand Vamps do seem to love bowling and pillow fights.
Also the bubble blowers and musical instruments that no sim can stay away from.
(They all seem to be pleasure sims. I guess this makes it less likely for them to go into aspiration failure over people who didn't want to be a vampire getting themselves cured. But it's kind of weird that they never get the same want to be cured that any other pleasure sim will get. At least they never actually fear it either.)
