TSR Reviews Cats and Dogs! Part 2


 

We are going to review the rest of the new EP today. I literally played this for 14 hours straight with only short breaks and I doubt I got everything this EP has to offer!

The first thing I want to get into more detail about is with regards to the new world. There is a lighthouse you can travel to and a Pier. I enjoyed leashing Bullet, my dog, and taking him for a walk around the pier. I took the cat too, but...the cat wasn't happy about it. She wanted me to hug and pet and pay attention to HER because...well she's a cat. So while I walked around with Bullet she sat pouting on the dock.

Great to see Seagulls! One of the nice touches EA added. Yes they do fly off if you get too close.

They have added a new kiosk that sells the “Fresh Catch of the Day”. So if you don’t like to fish but enjoy that fresh fish taste then just trot on over to the kiosk.

Aha! One of my neighbors with their little dog. Nice to see her here! As you can see the docks are well thought out with nice little touches like the buoys and birds.

I decided since I was already at the docks we might as well visit the lighthouse on the outer island. You can go to the lighthouse through a boat which fast travels you to the Lighthouse Island. It has the lighthouse and a museum. Plenty of walking space for you and your pet as well.

You can go up in the lighthouse, but you don't walk through the house. So once you enter the house look up and you'll be standing in the top of the lighthouse.

She was getting a bit hungry so thought it a good time to go home.

 

 

When travelling you do have the option to take your pet with you anyplace you go. So if you are partial to a walk in the city just choose your pet in the travel menu. The pets seem to go home with you automatically when you hit your home button. However if they do not, don’t worry you can call them by pressing this little whistle on your pets icon.

Also a handy dandy thing is you can gate your lot and lock the gate for your pets so they do not go wandering around.

 

Also comes in handy at 6AM when the dog is at the door wanting to go out. BEFORE Coffee! And yes in game they stand by the door and whine! Why do I have pets?

You need to pay attention to your pets, what their thought bubbles are, when they whine, meow, whimper, because like in real life they mean something you have to address. Although Bullet keeps obsessing with the refrigerator and I have yet to figure out what to do about it. One of the cool things was that you can feed your pet while you are eating from your meal. But like real life this can cause begging issues. Especially if your dog has the mooch trait. I even found I could give the dog my plate after I was done eating. LOL! EA really put a lot of detail into this.

Of course that brings us to the not so subtle hints something is wrong. Muppet the cat went out all night and came back with something obviously very wrong.

 

I rushed to the poor little kitty and had the option to address “What is wrong” and “Take to the vet” You can call on your phone and travel to the vet as well. Just select the sick animal to go. So off to the vet we went.

.  In the meantime my poor Muppet was in agony and had to use the litter box constantly. When we got in to see the vet she examined poor kitty and determined that she needs to go to surgery which is a computerized thing. I opted for the economy treatment which then gave poor kitty the “Cone of shame” of which she had to wear for 2 sims days. Hey I’m saving for my own vets office. Kitty shouldn’t have been roaming!

Poor kitty. I also picked up some treats from the vets office. Treats can do a lot of things and the only place you can get them is at the vets. One for resurrection, one for crapping gold bricks, one for age down, one for age up. Things like that. Yeah normal pet stuff.

When I got home Bullet desired my full attention so I wanted to see what was up. All of a sudden I got an option that said “Feel the love” and I thought awwwwwwwwww. I clicked on that and after a heartfelt cuddle some hearts appeared and again awwwwwwwww

 

 

 

   After a few days using my economy vet equipment I finally got to level 4 of the vet skill. I figured that was enough to be at least a decent vet. So away I went to purchase my very own vet clinic. I built a vet clinic because #1 I wanted to see what came for vet clinics and #2 I just like to build. You can actually purchase the vet clinic in game. Since I didn’t have time to look for vet clinics elsewhere I wanted to make sure I still had a place to take my own pets.

Purchasing a vet clinic is much like purchasing any other business, you can choose the uniforms, prices, you hire, fire and there are business perks. So since this was covered in another EP we'll get to actually being a vet. After I show you the cute uniforms.

Cute right?

 

On to being a vet. Being a vet is uhm…interesting. You diagnose the pets and treat the pets for all sorts of ailments. Sometimes they need surgery. Some owners just bring in pets for a check up. Basically you go through a whole list of things to find what ails them. But be very careful as the more you poke at them the more stressed they become. The more stressed the pet becomes the more stressed the owner becomes and you don’t want bad reviews! There is a meter at the top of the pet to the top left that slowly turns red the more stressed the pet gets. Keep an eye on that because you will get a calm the pet option. Use it.

First a patient comes in and you greet the patient. Once you do an option pops up.

 

So you take the patient back to an exam room to start

 

As you can see there are many options. You just keep going down the list until you figure out what's wrong and then suggested treatments come up. Other than that it's like any other business waiting on your customers. Greet, Meet, treat.

 

 

Now on to the new “stuffs”. They didn’t scrimp on that either. I'm going to show you as much as I can, but I am sure I haven't seen everything yet.  New hairstyles and clothing. These are just a few. Need to leave some surprises for you all.

There is also a new aspiration.

A couple of new traits.

And loads of new content.

Loads of new gameplay items. Stuff for your pets and stuff for you. A new pets category is also in game so you can easily find pet items.

The gameplay is very full with this EP so plan on spending several days getting to know it.  I hope I have given you at least a taste of one of the best EP’s this series.

Wow, that was really interesting reading. I bet "Cats and dogs" would be my next favorite thing after "Vampires" and "Get to Work". I was waiting for pet's since Sims 4 just came out! I miss some other pets, like rabbits, though... and HORSES! Anyway, thanks, I like this review! Has enough information to uncover the main point, but still keeps us wondering. Also it has a funny style\:D
