Code was provided by EA

There are a few different ways to get puppies or kittens. Make sure your household doesn’t already have 8 members.

You can make your pets woohoo

First thing you need to do is become good friends with your pet to unlock this interaction. You can find their friendship levels when you click ‘Friendly’ and after that click on ‘Encourage to Mate With’. You’ll get a summary with the pets your pet has befriended. Choose the right partner for your pet to mate with.

If the woohoo was successful you’ll get a message a few hours after they mated if they are expecting a kitten or puppy. It doesn’t matter what breeds they are as long if it’s the same species.

In about 2 days you’ll get a message they’re about to give birth. This will happen automatically because there isn’t a bassinet or something to click on.

Tip: If you want more puppies or kitten from one nest, add the lot trait Breeding Ground to your lot. Go into build mode, click on the house in the upper left corner and select the trait.

Adopt a kitten or puppy

When you click on your phone and browse services you’ll see the option to adopt a cat or a dog. You can choose between 12 different stray pets and a few of them are kittens or puppies. If you chose one or more pets someone will bring a crate to your house that contains your chosen pets. They will walk around and you can get to know them before you decide to adopt them for 200 Simoleons.

If you decide to adopt them you can change their first name but also their last name.

    1. Yes, you can go to the Vet. There you can buy snacks (there is an automat next to the entrance) and one of them makes your pet age!

  1. I have a household with 3 sims and 3 cats, totaling a household of 6 family members, and one of my cats is about to give birth. But she went into labor a while ago and nothing’s happened. Did I do something wrong? Is my household too big? I’m pretty worried about this cat

    1. I think you’ve encountered a bug. It happened to me the first time too when my cats gave birth to a kitten. Restarting the game fixed it for me and it showed up. I think it glitched because i wasn’t home when she’s gone into labor.

  2. Is it possible to make two stray cats or two stray dogs woohoo? And is it possible to find stray puppies and kittens in the wild??

    1. I know it sounds silly but make sure you haven’t accidentally made both of the parents the same gender; I made that mistake myself recently and I was tearing my hair out trying to work out why the option wasn’t showing up; it wasn’t until someone suggested I check the genders that I went into CAS and realised I had made both of my dogs as males by accident 😛

    1. Why do you want to do that? But at the vet you can get an age up treat from the vending machine. Then it will become an adult or an elder.
