Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
While looking through some of the maxis packages trying to figure out what I want to do for my next meshing project, I ran across 3 womrat textures that weren't included in the game. I made them into recolor packages for your enjoyment. I can't take any credit for these other than turning them into recolor packages.

Requires the Sims 2 Pets Expansion. New recolors are the top ones outlined in red in the photo.

Please do not clone, modify, recolor or upload to any sites (free or pay) without my permission.

Thanks goes to SimPe, CEP and Maxis.

Awesome thanks so much but why are people calling guinea pigs womrats, lol
speaking of hidden textures, there are two or more of the dog textures that are hidden too, and only come into view when the CAS is in the debugging mode, I've used the one which puts neat streaks through the dogs coats, ya gotta wonder why Maxis does this eh! thanks again for posting these for us drago

Maxis can really keep the cat in the water bag. I sure hope we can outwit them before the next EP

Thanks for the new colors! I never knew they were called Womrats either Orionsfire...as far as I knew they were Guinea Pigs too. Just like Sims1. Sry everyone I know I am wrong just thought i heard them say Guinea's lol..never heard of a Womrat guess I have now..Thanks so much for the great colors.

Thanks! And might be that the american release called them womrats, but other versions used guinea pig.

Maybe they're generic rodents so people can't yell at them for having the wrong sort of cage etc? We're scary people, small animal owners...

They'd be pretty small for guinea pigs too. Although not small enough to be in those tiny cages. And wheels can seriously injure guinea pigs and... yes, I can see their point now :P

Every time you see this signature it will annoy you just a little bit more.

Well, you found them! lol. Thanks!

EDIT: Oh and in my Finnish translation Pets they're called "mamsters" o_O;

Mim is right, a guinea pig would be about twice the size of a womrat... give or take a bit. And they're a lot lazier than womrats, too. A guinea pig baby might be that big.

Thank a bunch, this will certainly make things much better for me and my sim kiddies! :D

Lazier? Tell that to the wee bugger who keeps me awake bouncing around his cage all night!

I know my Guinea pigs were about the size of a small kitten, They're cute little things and thanks for finding these ^.^. You can't interact with them much but I love the Womrat. Mine were very active too actually.

I've gotta say that in the Pets little booklet thingie,its says -ahem- "cats,dogs,birds and Womrats(an amzing genetically-engineered hybrid of certain rodent-like creatures." But I agree with most people on here,they look like hamsters(or guinea pigs).
I downloaded this and realised that the last hidden colour was fried womrat.Eew.
