Adult (May 24, 2007)


Scottish Fold;
Brown tabby

12 lbs


Although he's an internet celebrity, Maru has not let that gone to his head. Well, maybe just a little bit:

Other than the occasional ruling over his cardboard box palace, Maru has kept a humble and normal life with his owner. Even though he spends most of his time sliding into boxes, he does enjoy relaxing in the bath.

Maru is the perfect pet for a Sim who needs company and a good laugh. This silly cat is unpredictable and will turn anything into a pet toy.
Though, at the end of the day, he just wants what every cat wants: love, affection, and of course, being spoiled.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
