The animals are everywhere! She had to call a skunk catcher in the middle of the night, and the dogs were barking at each other and cats having cat fights. I didn't see one that was particularly interested in Judith so I didn't pursue developing a relationship with one. Just about all of the other Sims have animals now, and Michael even plays with his kitty spontaneously.
I have started to take a look at their interests and am trying to find ways to help them that way. A few of them like movies, but don't have enough money to get a good television and I am not sure what else they can do. I took one of them into town the other day to look around. Maybe I'll take Judith into town and find a theater.
Obsessed? I am thinking there's some good in this. I don't do much in the way of play. Normally.
