The brand new feature for The Sims Social allows your Sim to now adopt a pet of your choice. Whether you’re a cat person or a dog person or both, one thing is for sure… you will absolutely adore these little furballs!
Start by building your little pet a luxury house like the Dog House or Cat Hamlet and gradually learn to look after all its needs, with time you'll soon find that your pet will have an individual and unique personality and will be unlike any other Sim’s pet.
Pamper them, teach them tricks and help them develop talents and gain Pet Stars! Because with these Pet Stars not only will you unlock a whole new set of breeds to adopt, but you will also unlock cool accessories for your pet like doggy treadmills and cat towers to keep your pets happy and active!

How many pets are there?
At launch there is 2 different types of pet (cat and dog) with 4 different breeds available for each: Cat = Russian Blue, Siamese, Ginger Tabby and Persian Dog = Labrador, Pug, Dalmation and Husky
Well firstly each breed will have it’s own unique personality! In practical terms this means each breed will behave differently from another, some will be friendly and inquisitive, whilst others will be shy and reserved.
