A cat will run off and a exclamation mark bubble will appear above their head, click on it and they will pounce on simoleons or LPs.

Puppies and Kittens cannot find treasure

  1. Hi I just emailed you but I have another question. So I have two devices I play sims on. My phone and my iPad. I just started the game on my phone when I was logged into game center. But in my iPad in at level 44. If I log into game enter on my iPad will it make me go back to the beginning bc I’m Using the Game Center on my phone? Thank you

    Sent from my iPhone

    >

    • If you used the same game center on both it would be saving over the other game each time you saved so if one of your devices was to die and the other devices game saved last you would lose one of your games.

  2. Thanks for you posts. I follow them all and print them out for future reference.

  3. Hi! I’ve found another option for kitten/ puppy interacting with sims! If an adult sim is carrying a kitten/ puppy, you can click on a couch/ chair to relax with them!
    And I just wanna tell you that your blog really helps me a lot!! Thank you so much!

  4. Hi. Can rabbits do anything besides looking cute? Dig up lps or anything?
    Is there any other way for the puppies to grow up besides spending 15 lp on it? It seems a bit expensive. Is it even worth having a puppy? Thank you!!

  5. How do I get a fairy I bought one but it hasn’t appeared

  6. Hi! I have two dogs and one cat in my town. Sometimes when I click on the animal to have my sim pet them, the options to pet or praise them does not come up. I click on the animal several times and the options do not come up. Is this a glitch?

    • No this isn’t a glitch, when they are going to collect treasure you will not be able to get these options, you need to wait until they have finished finding simoleons or LPs and try again.

  7. Thanks for making this it really helped me a lot.

  8. How can you fill up a fairys happiness bar? I have the 3 star purple fairy and she has no happiness and I can only rename and relocate her when I click on her. Please help!!!

  9. One trick (perhaps others have also but if not I wanted to share) I noticed with the puppies and kittens if you simply have a sim pick them up and then put them down again it will greatly increase their happiness. Instead of having to do the longer actions you can do that. I’ve been able to increase their happiness from almost empty to full my simply picking them up and putting them down again twice in a row.

  10. Just wondering how to throw Frisbee with a neighbours dog? Do I just have to find a neighbour with a dog and Frisbee or do I need to buy a Frisbee specifically to use for that task? Its driving me crazy have had this task for aaaaaaaages lol thanks

  11. If I put a pet up for adoption, do I get my money back that I spent on it?

  12. Hi,
    If my cat is a one star cat, can it use a two-star food bowl?

  13. Hi! I was just wondering, can dogs go up stairs? I’ve tried calling my adult greyhound upstairs but he won’t even go near the stairs! Thanks

  14. I have two kittens in one house and I have brought them both an antique cat bed, I have left them every night in their room and put the door in my inventory. I have watched them for a while and they use the food bowl and the scratching post but not the beds. Is this a glitch or can kittens not use the cat beds? Also, I have the food and water bowl, they never drink the water- they only eat the food, is this supposed to happen?

    • Kittens don’t use the adult cat items as much as the adult cats, I don’t know why but maybe they will have their own items one day!
      Its not suppose to happen but it isn’t really a major issue as they don’t need to drink to survive.

  15. Hi, every time my puppy drinks or eats from its bowl, the bowl doesn’t empty. Is that normal?

  16. I have a puppy but when I click the stove I don’t see any biscuits at all just wondering why that is did I do something wrong n I also have a kitten so I’m not sure why I don’t see the biscuits to make them grow

  17. They’re isn’t an option to obsessivly Stroke my cat. Help

  18. Hello, I’m doing the puppy odyssey quest and I got up to, click on the pet store. I did that and there was a puppy for free. I got the puppy, then when I went to look at the kittens, my game crashed. Now when i play the game and click on my pet store the game crashes. Now I can’t go to the pet store anymore cause the game always crashes. Is this a glitch and can it be fixed? Thank you. And thank you for all your post. Always very helpful.

  19. I went to the pet salon at sometime because I have several puppies and kittens with clothes and all my adults have collars. For some reason I can’t find where I bought the clothes at. I have tried for hours to figure this out with no luck. Thanks for all your help!!

  20. My greyhound puppy always has the lobster toy in her mouth. I think it’s a glitch, but I have no clue how to fix it.

  21. Hi I’d bought a house that came with lots of pet stuff. I put the kennel in my inventory and now it’s not showing in my inventory. I don’t have a pet store or any pets so that might be the reason why. Will the kennel appear in the inventory once I build the pet store?

  22. Hello, so I am working on the cat show hobby. I was working on dog obedience hobby which I have completed. I noticed when I went to put collars on cats to send them to the pat park…. It takes my coins for the collar but doesn’t put the collar on the cat. This has been for several months now. Is this because of a cap on how many pets can have collars or a glitch? Thanks-

  23. Thank you- yeah when I go to fire monkey to submit a ticket there’s no option to do so.

  24. I’m a big fan of your blog and play Sims Freeplay a lot, but today I was trying to move a kitten into a house owned by a teen, only it didn’t give the option for the pet to be owned by my teen. Is this a glitch or is it meant to be like this?

    • Technically teens shouldn’t be able to live in a house on their own (yes they can, but you can’t relocate them in a house on their own) this is probably why you cannot move the kitten.
      You could try moving an adult in with the teen then moving the kitten, then delete or move that adult to a different house, that might work!

  25. Will puppies and kittens automatically start aging after completion of the Life Dreams and Legacies quest (like sims do), or will they always remain puppies and kittens until you bake them a birthday biscuit?

  26. Will a dragon play with dog stuff or do dragons not get that option?

  27. I recently contacted EA because before the puppy/kitten update I had two adult cats and two adult dogs. In short one of my adult cats is missing, I have checked every house with a paw present and even houses with no paw, just incase. Within two days they said no, no cat is missing, which I responded that I know for a fact it is. That was almost three weeks ago, now all the sudden they can’t promptly respond, annoying. So today I go to a house where I know I have an adult cat and a puppy, and guess what ….I found another puppy and a kitten running around the house…weird cause I thought it was a two pet per house max, so how do I have four? Should I contact EA through the ticket claim that is already open, or should I do a new one. I feel this proves something hinkey is going on in my game. Have you ever had or seen 4 pets in one house? I know you don’t work with them lol but your advice means a lot . Thanks, sorry so long…. Love your site and dedication to your gaming!!

    • Were you on the puppy odyssey quest? As during that quest a kitten and puppy appear in your town, if not I wouldn’t worry about contacting them about this because it isn’t a major problem, its actually quite nice that you have extra free pets! But if you want to contact them again do it through the open ticket you already have.
      Thanks!

  28. You are an incredible resource for new players! Thank you!

    Any idea how frequently we need to feed our cats? I have a cat and kitten in the same household and I’ve refilled my food bowl (2 star) about 10 times in the last 90 minutes. I hadn’t noticed how quickly the food disappears until now.

    • You’re welcome!
      Some of them seem to eat a lot while others barely touch their food, honestly you don’t actually need to feed them at all, they won’t die and it does not decrease their happiness if you don’t

  29. Hi I have this greyhound puppy in Sims Freeplay and when I got the puppy I had a lobster toy and he picked it up and started to play with it. But the problem is that he won’t put the toy down and I think it’s glitched because its showing that its in his head instead of him carrying it around. Is there anything I can do? Help! I don’t want to get rid of him

  30. How do I increase my dragons happiness?

  31. What prizes can a one star dog find?😄

  32. Hii thanks for your information, but i just feel confuse because of the limitation of having pets “2 pets per household”. Is it mean that we can’t make a ‘farm’? Thank you

  33. Can you have more than one pet per
    household?

  34. Will my [pet] collect any Simoleons or LPs if I do not click on the bubble? For say I do not have the app open? Or do I have to be present and click on the bubble?

  35. I don’t like how cats and dogs only cost LPs! Couldnt they also cost simoleons? 😦

  36. Could you please add about dragons to the pets section please? As you can buy them in the pet store, and I can’t find where the bit about dragons is, thanks.

  37. Hello again! This is an odd observation/question, sorry it is long.

    There are occasions when I’m busy so I’ll just have my sims work and then check back in again and have them garden – sometimes I’ll do this for a few days. Obviously in the meantime, my pools and pets have been neglected so when I have time I’ll go through and get everything caught up. Just today after having done this (my pools are all green, etc), my pets’ happiness meters are all full! This has happened a few other times. Any idea why they would stay happy for so long or is it just a glitch?

    Thanks as always for everything.

  38. I need help if I buy the dog frisbee will my puppy be able to use it or can dogs only use it

  39. Does version 5.13 allow you to have a pf?

  40. I need help! How to buy a dog in a weekly task? I bought 4 dogs worth $10,000 each but it didn’t work. Please help…

    Thank you…

  41. Will my pets dissappear if the last person living in the house dies an the house becomes vacant?

  42. Hi, I see other people with Rabbit houses, were these a prize in a quest I’ve missed or something available at higher levels ? I would like to get a rabbit but only if it had a house!

  43. I can’t seem to name my kitten,puppy, or horse…. Any idea why?

  44. I’m new to the sims franchise so forgive me. I currently have one sim with 2 cats and another sim with a dog. I’m planning on getting them hitched (the sims, not the pets lol). I’m assuming I’ll have the option of moving them in together so what will happen to the 3 pets considering only 2 are allowed per house?
    Thank you for your time!

  45. I have got the free puppy after the puppy oddessy quest and it is not showing up

  46. Hello! I’m currently completeinng the Puppy Oddessy quest and one of the tasks are to take the puppy home from the park but I can’t because the puppy disappeared! Help?

  47. Hi i bought accesories for my kitten but the kitten does not use them. When i click on them no action to call over pops. It shows the block symbol.
