The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Cat Show


Once you complete the Life Dreams and Legacies Quest you will be able to use orbs to build the Pet Park, once the pet park is built you will also need to use orbs to build the Cat Show Area (for more information please click here) Once the cat show area is built a teen, adult or senior can complete this hobby along with a cat


NOTE: before you can complete this hobby you need a cat in your town (not a kitten) and they need to be wearing a collar that you can buy from the pet salon. Once they are wearing a collar when you click on them you will get the option to send to pet park:20160408-112044.jpg

Once one of your sims and the cat are at the pet park you can click on the cat show catwalk and select:

  • Enter Cat Show- 4 hours


After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the cat show rosette collectibles. Every time your sims enters the cat show their cat show hobby level up percentage will increase, once you reach 100% you will level up, there are 6 levels. You need to reach level 6 to be able to unlock all of the cat show rosette collectibles, once unlocked you will be able to find them.

NOTE: click on the cat at the pet park to get the option to send them home once you complete the hobby

The table below shows the level up percentage:

This may change in future updates

 LEVEL Enter Cat Show
1-2 72%
2-3 36%
3-4 18%
4-5 12%
5-6 9%

For example you would need to enter 12 times to reach level 6 from level 5

The next table shows you for each level what catshow rosette collectibles you unlock (so you can then find those ones too) and also the level up reward that a second and future sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

1 Moggie Messer Finger Slasher, Minor Annoyance and Catawauler are unlocked in the hobby collection
2 Tom Trasher Knead to Bleed, Sunbeam Sleeper and Butt in Face are now unlocked in the hobby collection 250XP
3 Kitty Keeper Self Grooming, Expert Box Sitter and Dazzling Eyes are now unlocked in the hobby collection 500XP
4 Puss Preener Cats Meow, Perfect Paws and Regal Prancing are now unlocked in the hobby collection S750
5 Cat Carer Catwalk Strut, Fluffiest Coat and Fanciest Whiskers are now unlocked in the hobby collection 10,000 Town Value
6 Catwalk Hero Meowveleous Moggie, Most Fabulous Feline and Peerless Puss are now unlocked in the hobby collection.

You can now complete the collection!


NOTE: only the first sim completing this hobby needs to get to level 6 to unlock all the collectibles, future sims will be able to find any collectible even if they are only on level 1 in this hobby

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?


The completed cat show collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):

You will earn XPs when you complete a row in the hobby but to complete the collection you need to find all 18 of the collectibles

The rewards for completing this collection are the cat run and 3LP:

  • The first time you complete this hobby collection you unlock the cat run, you can find it in the pet section of buy mode for S80,000 (expensive considering all my cat does is sleep in it!)


  • From the second time onwards each time you complete the collection you will earn 3LP

  1. I have a different question, sorry for the english, im asian, how can you wear your sims with different underwear?

  2. I was having a problem buying a cat collar – I would buy one, the simoleans would disappear from my bank, but the collar didn’t show up on my cat. I didn’t contact EA myself but the “fix” was to save your game data to the cloud, delete the Sims Freeplay app, re-install it, and load up the game data. At least one person here said this didn’t solve the problem for them.

    I recently got a hand-me-down iPad — newer than my old one. Yay! So the hand-me-down was reset to factory settings, I got it as if brand new, I didn’t restore anything on it, I just treated it as new. So I installed a new copy of Sims Freeplay, loaded up my old game data, and: Success! I now have a cat and a Sim doing the cat hobby. FWIW.

  3. You know what stinks? All of the sims I wasted to get the life orbs to build the pet park and the cat show area and now I finally am able to do the hobby and it’s taking for freaking ever to finish it. Blah. This game drives me nuts but I’m addicted to it. Is there a self help group out there?

  4. P.S. I’m so frustrated I forgot to say thank you for all of your help on all of these quests and hobbies and events! You do a superb job with this and I am so grateful for your hard work.

    I don’t want to be one
    of those people who gets on here to only complain. Sorry if I seemed like that. Happy simming. 😀

  5. What are the dimensions on the cat play area? Also for the dog agility stuff and the dog slide for the pool? Can the cat play area and dog agility stuff go inside?

    • The cat play area is 3×3
      The dog agility: Tyre Jump 4×3, Jump 5×2, Teeter Board 6×2, A-Frame 6×2, Tunnel 3×3
      The dog pool slide is 6×2
      The cat run can be placed inside but the agility items have to go outside

  6. Hi! The Cat run will keep the cats always happy! It means when you get one for your cat or cats, their happiness level is always to the max. Which at least should mean they collect more bonuses 🙂
    (The cat or cats who live in the house where the Cat run is, that is…)
