Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
These luxuriously-furred cats are one of the most popular longhaired cat breeds with a silky coat, cobby body, round face and large eyes. They are very placid, quiet cats, which makes them ideal for elderly Sims.

I know, the cat in the pictures doesn't have a very Persian-looking face, but I have included the Persian-faced version in the zip file.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Your cat is very beautiful. That cat acts like a queen.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

Thank you!

Absolutely, these cats are just so placid and divine in reality, so regal. I have a couple living with one of my richer Sims families in my game - they look so at home!

Chinchillas are much rounder, furrier, and have longer ears, don't they? Try again please.

I thought you were trying to make a real Chinchilla. O.o

I have something important to say.
A Chinchilla is NOT a CAT.
It is a breed of rodent, prized for it's silky, silvery coat, and used to be often(or possibly still is) used for coats or fur "Boas"*. I believe the name of feline you wished to submit this as would be 'Persian'. A Persian is a fluffy cat, that commonly comes in white. Pedigree Persians have blue eyes normally, and are deaf, because of genetics.

If you want to make a Chinchilla, make something a LOT smaller than this.

If not, nice Persian ya got there.



*If you have no idea what a 'boa' is, or think it is a snake, I will tell you here. It is a long, furry or feathered kneck wrap, plain and simple. They used to be very popular with celebrities, back when... oh, about when anyone under age 35's parents were kids.

If your aim was to look smarter than me, to make me look stupid, or to make me look wrong - congratulations, you failed.

I know about the rodent, I am not confused, and the chinchilla cat breed was named after the little critters.

The chinchilla cat is not a persian. They are two different breeds and come from two different bloodlines. More specifically, persians originated from Turkey, while chinchillas are British.

Since you think you can educate me on a number of topics, I'm willing to presume that you know one word (and nouns are no exception to this) can have multiple meanings? Did you overlook that fact while you were busy trying to do whatever it was you were hoping to achieve? No need to pull out the Magic Eight Ball for that one.
If the contrary to the aforementioned fact is your logic, however, is the persian, which you mentioned yourself, also idiocy because a Persian is also a person from Iran or a rug, for example? </rhetoric>


PS: I know what a boa is, I'm not ignorant, uncultured, or inept. Curiously, though, the fact that your profile says "student" suggests that I may be older than you.

I didn't know there was a cat breed of them, then again. I'm Australian and the rodent version is banned here, must see if we have the feline version instead, it's so lovely! You just want to pet it until it melts into a puddle of fuzz. *laughs* Until I can do just that, I'll let my sims have yours to pet, thank you. *flicks water at those protesting this cute cat!*

Wowsers,you just about covered every single word I was going to say...
except in a more educated manor...because I am also VERY possibly younger than you.
But I was also going to say that,real cat breed or not,you can name your cat whatever the heck you feel like naming it. I don't just mean the cat. I mean the breed. Because you created it.
Another example is a fawn made by Bubbleeye. The animal is in fact a dog,not a fawn,but because he/she made it to look like a fawn,he/she wants to call it a fawn.

BTW,I absolutely love this. This is the cat I've ALWAYS wanted,but my mom won't let me get,for the excuse of "We already have two cats!" So thank you! Now I can give all my simmies this kitty!Ahh,I can here it now...

This is a very beutiful cat, since in real life i can't own a cat for a number of reasons,mostly because my mother hates cats, i'm glad that at least i can have a virtual cat, especially this one, beutiful work on this one.

Thanks Deidara! But at the end of the day, that just gives you one more thing to look forward to when you move out of home, doesn't it?

And thanks, Dragonfire25. Great minds think alike. Haha.
I know what the "two cat rule" feels like. My family are cat breeders but since I'm living in my parents' house at the moment (just moved interstate) and their two remaining cats are very old girls (18yo human years, aka 'very old' in "cat years"), so I have to wait 'til I buy my own place again before I can get new four-legged furry children. Haha.
