At least the womrats get the little bubble over them showing they are hungry. Do birds? I didn't notice. And the fish definitely don't. Always a fine line between under and over feeding the fish. Tongue

THANKS THIS IS GREAT

One of my sims walked right over the new bowl and started filling it up. I don't know if the pet asked her to or not.

The bird does get thought bubbles about hunger.

Is the wormrat's bowl ever actually full? Everytime I click on the cage it suggests I add food, even if I just did.

The animations for playing with the wormrat are pretty cute, though. So far only Sandy Bruty has a wormrat and she has never gone to play with it autonomously - she can't leave the bird alone, though.

How is the bird opening the door? I put it in its own room so if she left the cage open when I wasn't looking then at least he wouldn't get out... but the door keeps opening everytime he gets near it.

I think with the womrat and the bird they always let you fill the food because like the fish it's possible to overfeed them and they can gorge themselves to death. I killed a bird that way. Oops. :O

With the pet bowl, I noticed sometimes I get the "clean" option and sometimes I don't. Does it make a difference at all? All it seems to do is dump the food out, I've never seen it get rotten or stinky (I guess it's hard food) and I've also never seen pets refuse the food in the bowl.

Oh and about the womrats, I noticed if you put them in the same room a sim sleeps in it wakes them up which is kind of dumb. Tongue I can understand birds, but when I was a kid I had hamsters in my bedroom and they never made so much noise that it woke me up. Heck, even the birds generally shut up if you put a cover over their cage for a night.

Try Christianlov's hack at MTS2 that keeps birds from flying if the cage door is unlocked.
http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=198075

Christianlov also has a hack to keep cages clean and always stocked with food.

Now if somebody would only do the same for pet bowls, we'd be all set  Smiley

Did anyone ever make a hack for the fishtanks so they don't need to bed fed and cleaned all the time?

Also, does the maid clean the bird and womrat cages? I hadn't paid attention.

I've also never seen pets refuse the food in the bowl.

Assuming they're trained to eat pet food, that is Smiley  Have you played those obnoxious Crittur dogs yet?  They'll starve to death right in the same room with a bowl of pet food because they've been trained to eat Sim food.

Nope, I haven't played those dogs yet. How annoying lol. Not like I haven't had dogs like that irl though. Not sure I would want to eat the stuff in that pet food anyway. It's loaded with ground up animal carcasses and even ash. Tongue

My sim cats always sleep on the human beds but I don't mind. IRL I had cats that would do that growing up and we just let them, they pretty much went all over the place, sofa, bed, whatever they wanted. Don't try to get them up either or they would get made and hiss and swat at you lol.

I've seen the maid clean the birdcage.

I also had a wormrat cage in the kids bedroom, but I never noticed him waking up. Too bad the poor thing only lasted 3 sim days so I guess I'll never know. lol That thing was the most annoying thing to care for!

The bowls get green stink lines eventually, but pets still eat out of them anyway. I don't know if that makes them sick.

I only clean them when they are empty. It's the bowls that get gross, not the food itself. Although maybe the food does too after a long enough time, I don't know.

I never knew you could overfeed the fish. I've always fed them once a day.

Lawd, when I was a kid, my hamster ran on his wheel all night, and it was just obnoxious. Thunk, thunk, thunk, squeak.

The cat pan does need to be cleaned after three sims days. I picked up a mod last night that will prevent the fish from dying, regardless of food or cleaning...which is good, because I have no idea how to keep them buggers alive in the sims...or real life.

We need a daily cat pan hack.  Grin

It's kind of silly that if you toilet train your cats, the toilet bowl needs to be cleaned far more often that the catpan.

Since they made the catpans require such infrequent care, it's actually a disadvantage to toilet train cats. :p

The people at Maxis EA must never have had a cat. If you leave their pan uncleaned for several days in a row, they'll find it unpalatable to go in and find other places to go.  Shocked

I know! The pet bed does eventually get stinky, though, which seems oddly inconsistent.

Hmm, well if the pet bed gets stinky then what's the advantage to having them sleep in it as opposed to a human bed? I guess there is none other than it looks like you have a nice obediant and orderly pet.  Tongue

I wouldn't say it's a disadvantage. The maid will handle the terlet naturally anyway. Everyone has one of those, right?

Macrotastics will soon support an increase range of pet-related maintenance as part of Power Idle, starting with food bowl refilling and cleaning.

Well, that didn't take long!  Two more hacks available at MTS2:  An auto-filling food bowl by Christianlov (http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=197501) and a water bowl that pets can drink from, by wintermuteai1 (http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=198233)

If you have the auto-filling pet bowl installed, it will also automatically refill the water bowl.  And no need to clean either of them!  I have these in my game and they seem to be working fine so far.

Beau Broke missed the schoolbus playing Razzle with a stray

PITA.  I haven't had a chance to get a puppy or kitten.  I swear, Brandi Broke is the most high maintenance preggo sim I've ever had.

Huh  Playing in a vanilla game, I've had the litter box get dirty and need to be cleaned. I had two cats in the house and it seemed like every other sim day the box needed to be cleaned. The animation is kinda funny when they are cleaning it out.

I want pet beds to support kitten piles. I also think it would be awesome if toddlers could sleep in the pet beds.  Cheesy

I dont quite understand why they didnt make more than one slot on the pet beds, I mean those things are huge in comparison to the pets, and realistically pets do tend to sleep together for warmth, especially youngsters
