Just like sims, cats and dogs can have jobs. Have their owner look in the newspaper by selecting "Find pet job for..." and choose one of three career paths;

  • Showbiz
  • Security
  • Service

Their job will then begin the next day.

Taking the day off[edit]

If your pet's mood is too low they may decide not to go to work that day (or night). Then their boss will phone and give you a warning, and if your pet is away again the next day they will be fired.

You can call the boss at any time to have your pet quit it's job. They can also retire if they are an elderly pet. If your pet has done an extroardinary job at work, you may also be able to call your pet in sick.

Career Paths[edit]

Much like sim jobs, pet jobs have career paths. They can get promoted by learning a required command, and by having a good enough mood when they set out. When a pet gets promoted, you will also unlock a new fur colour, marking or collar for a cat or dog. When a pet retires because of old age, they will receive a daily pension.
