More filling "minor pets snacks" for cats and dogs

When I got the Pets EP and saw that cats could go hunting I was all excited like "Oh, awesome, so I don't have to pay for her food"
......well it turned out that cats in the Sims 3 are either real gluttons or that the huge fish in the lakes were actually made of paper or plastic because the hunger gain was close to non existent.

After asking all-knowing-google I still couldn't find a mod to change that (I'm sorry if there is one, but I only found a post here that asked for such a mod, but without any productive answers,funny ones though) so I tried it myself.
The motive bars range from -100 to 100 and it turned out, the gain from minor pets was set to mere 25. Unfortunately that value is for everything, from cockroach to mini python, the game does not differentiate and since I actually have no Idea about modding I can't change that either.
What I could change was the "25"

So, what this mod does?

It increases that very value.

The Mod comes in 5 flavors
2x sets the value to 50 meaning your cat gains 50 hunger-points out of 200
3x to 75
4x to 100
5x to 125
6x to 150

you may want to choose your flavor according to your pets preferences, lets be honest having a beetle almost fill up your hungerbar would be just as ridiculous as having a huge shark fill only 25 points (let alone the fact that a cat can actually catch those sharks). Like I said I have no Idea how to specialize that value, if you do please give it a try I would most certainly be grateful!

Now as you may have noticed, the title mentions dogs as well, it turned out that the game not only doesn't differentiate between the cats prey, it doesn't care who's eating it either, so if your cat feels like sharing, you dog can have a snack as well (or a actual meal depending on the flavor you choose)

Conflicts
I only changed the value of the PetEatPrey-ICatPrey Itun in the GameplayData package. So it should only conflict if you have another mod tinkering with that which is rather unlikely because there isn't much in it...

Woo, thanks! I found it odd too when your pet would eat something like a mini python and it would only fulfill hunger a tiny bit. 2x hunger fulfillment for me ^.^

You nailed it. I've known more than one cat couldn't be bothered with the fresh kibbles I kept in their bowls.
They were fat and happy with the all the barn mice they'd hunted down. Thank you, this was a great idea.

if possible could this change the gourmet pet food as well? Sims spend time making deluxe pet food for their pets and their food bar hardly goes up. . . you'd think the horse granola would go up at least as much as a sims hunger goes up when eating the world adventures "dry food"

I looked into it, but I only found xmls about preparing the food, nothing about the hunger gain...but if it helps, it would be easy to increase the hunger gain from eating the newspaper if your horse is prone to do that
I'm sorry but I'm afraid you'd need a real modder for that (or someone who can make more sense of all those brackets).
