Pet Relationship Icon Replacements

One of the first things I noticed when I started playing Pets was the relationship headline icons that show above a Sim or Pets' head when they interact with each other.

I did not like them.

If a symbolic stick person is good enough for a Sim then why should pets get overly-cartoony, full colour relation headline icons?

To remedy this I have edited said icons to be more inkeeping with the existing Sim relationship icons.
The pet-to-pet icon is the icon from The Sims 2: Pets with an updated colour palette to fit in with The Sims 3 colour scheme.

The pet-to-sim icon is a mixture of the updated pet icon and the existing sim icon. It looks a bit like the stick figure is stroking the dog's nose.

I feel these fit much better in the game and they are actually slightly smaller than the originals so they don't overlap quite as much either when pets are close to each other. The icons also correctly become red if a negative reaction is recieved.

The files that I have edited are;
headline_Social_Pet (Instance 0x9dc0eccdeea5f0af)
headline_Social_Sim (Instance 0x2a5cff1367ae13d9)
Both are _IMG files from within DeltaBuild2.package so unless you have any other mod that alters these then there is nothing for them to conflict with.

To remove from your game, simply take the file out of your Mods folder.

Additional Credits:
SaraMKirk (whoever they may be) for extracting and uploading a load of Sims 2 icons to FilePlanet which I got the pet icon from.
