This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Two black-and-white pet bowls with new meshes for those of you who'd like some custom content related to pets. I have tested the pet bowls only briefly in the game and they worked fine.
Cats Rule Pet Bowl - 452 polys
Dogs Rule Pet Bowl - 618 polys

I hope everything will be OK and I'm wating for some feedback.

P.S.(to answer some of your questions and correct some typos)
I made the bowls with the old version of Simpe. It is possible to do this, if you manually include the necessary files. A huge thanks to Quaxi and all the creators of SimPE for making a really awesome program.
I made the bed in the picture. I'm not happy with the result, so I have not submitted it for upload yet.

I love the dog bowl I'll test it when I get my game, but sadly that will be around Tuesday so hopefully someone can test it before then.
