Also there are many ways to get pets. Call on the phone "adoption service" Adopt a stray pet your sim finds. Make a pet while your making a family with Create-A-Pet or add a pet to a family using Create-A-Pet

Perhaps you should change to title to something like:
Chat Transcripts from Pet Chat?

Edit: It's closed...? really really closed?!

I think that's a good idea Cheeseisgood. =)


Bah. I was trying to copy the Learned BeHaviors bit, as I don't think I explained it well enough. Then a mod asked everyone to log out, so away went what I was trying to copy. Bah. Hopefully, the log will be out soon.

I can't get in either. Thanks for keeping us posted.

OT: Wow Discordkitty. That must seem like a shock to you being a moderator now. I saw it in a post in sims 2 chat and I was like "...what?" lol

Default Info from Chat at Official Site
Here's some info I've compiled from the chat, I thought it might be useful in a List?

*New fishtank - saltwater fish
*No disease from guinea-pigs/hamsters
*Pets do NOT take up family member slots - so 8 Sims + 6 pets (at the moment)
*Pets not controllable, but there will be a cheat to enable that
*? Diagonal roofs available
*Children can train pets
*There are strays + a skunk
*Pets run away if not cared for / taken away by Animal Control if mistreated
*Sims can hug their pets - new interactions
(Particularly noted interactions with kids/toddlers & pets - yay :D)
*There will be new music
*An Animal Trainer can be hired [I guess to train animals?]
*Pets are able to fight with each other
*Your sims will be able to teach birds to talk
*You can customise and teach your pet, so that they are all individual and you have control over their behaviours
*The pets have similar motives to Sims, and require some of the same needs
*There is no *poop* - only blue liquid :P
*A park, similar to the one shown on the E3 preview, will come with the game
*There are litter boxes/trays for cats
*Tricks: Stay,Speak,Roll Over,Play Dead - Can also train cats to use the toilet [? I hope they mean..litter tray?]
*Pets have family trees, just like Sims
*Your University/YA Sims can have pets too
*You can own a pet shop if you have the OFB expansion pack [yay!]
*To go to work, Pets are picked up - they don't require the owner to take them
*Pets, just like Sims, can be resurrected
*Litter size - 1-4 Puppies/Kittens
*Pets cannot come back as zombies
*Birds not available in Create-A-Pet
*Pets have memories
*The Grim Reaper is the same for both Sims and Pets
*Your pets can become ghosts
*Pets need to be encouraged not to destroy gardens, plants etc.
*Pets cannot take the elixir of life, but can eat Kibble of life instead:D
*Pets do not need 'dog doors', and can function using usual doors
*Maxis-made families will be shipped with the game
*There is a new phone with this EP
*You can have different coloured pets (e.g. pink Poodles) if you unlock the ability [?]
*You can be a pet breeder, and trade and train pets

Thanks to Trissle:
Pets can go to owned business lots if you have OFB

Thanks to yamikuronue:

The new total for Sims/Pets in household is 12 (apparently,but it could change?)

Who cares, we've got them right here now! Mwahaha! Silly Maxoids!

And yes... someone asked if we could breed a cat and a dog. Page 4 i think, but unsure. I laughed out loud there!

Yeah... alright, you can PM me to request a house I suppose... Might take a while though as forewarning...

Moderated chat. The moderators controlled what showed up and only the ones that got answered showed up (I assume)

What made me laugh was because they said "maybe" to that question, as well as the werewolf question.
