So I installed Pets for the first time and I was appalled at the eyes they gave cats, and the horrible black dots that are on the eyes, so I fixed the dots and made some default replacements!



There are two variations of these eyes. One is called Purrrrfect and the other is Local Black Cat.

Purrrrfect has a constricted pupil, LBC has a dilated one for the cuter look that you can’t get with constricted pupils!



There is a third option, if you just want to fix your cat’s black dots, but want to keep the EA eyes, then you will want the Cat Eye Fix.



YOU MAY ONLY HAVE ONE VARIATION IN YOUR GAME AT A TIME!!!

Just place one of the three choices in your packages folder. I would suggest NOT merging these because there may be updates etc.

All variations work with two tone eyes and the regular 4 channel eyes. They are for kitten-elder cats.

Place any of these three files in your packages folder. These will conflict with other mods that change cat eye meshes, cat eye textures, and cat overlays.

Remember to clear your sim compositor cache to see the changes! Enjoy!!

If you use my eyes as a base, please just give me a quick little credit or link! Thank you!

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 file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


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.

Just wanted to say thank you, and these are purrfect! I chose the Local Black Cat defaults. I've been trying to create my little Ellie, but the EA eyes made it physically impossible to do. With your LBC eyes, though, Ellie looks exactly like her playful -and slightly retarded- self in game! So thank you!

Why S3 mods, WHY???
Downloading Sims 3 files is so effing hard. It says "Install Instructions" but that's useless. I deleted the cache AND regenerator files, put my .package files in the mods folder, but no freaking Resource.cfg or Package folders appear (I downloaded WinRAR, but I only use 7zip for unzipping.) and nothing appears in-game. I just started trying to download mods for S3 after I saw this, and after deleting cache files and regenerator files and bin files multiple times, I gave up and stuck with my extremely-easy-to-install mods on the Sims 4. (You just download the mod, unzip if a package, rar etc. and copy it into your Mods folder. No steps between.)

The way you download mods for the sims 4 looks to be the same way I do it for the sims 3 and they always work great, so try it that way. Sometimes you have to delete cache files, but that's only when ones aren't working in game.

Also, thanks for these eyes, they look great!

I love the rounded pupils in cats. Any chance you could make one where it is bigger like real cat eyes where the white of the eye is not visible?

Those Black Cat Eyes are what I call "danger eyes" and usually mean someone's going to get scratched. I'll stick to the Purrfect Eyes for my sims' safety! Thank you so much for making these!

Is it just the lighting in CAS, or do the Purrfect eyes show up *really dark* for anybody else? At least there's the eye fix- thanks for that!

Edit: It's the lighting, I had the same issue with EA eyes. /switches back to Purrfect

They look lovely! But in CAS, the "purrrfect" eyes turn pixelated and blurry- is there a way to fix it?
