This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

A bed size for each pet size!
by MaryLou & Numenor


Don't you think that those little puppies and kittens look so lonely when sleeping in the huge Maxis pet beds?
Wouldn't you agree that a pet bed created for a large dog should be different than the one used by cats?

A Custom Tailored Pet Bed is what you need!
It comes in several versions, that will perfectly fit your pet size:
  • Small Pillow for puppies and kittens only;
  • Medium Pillow and Medium Basket for cats, small dogs, kittens and puppies;
  • Large Pillow for large dogs only.

You will find all the above Pet Pillows & Basket in the Buy Mode catalog, subsection Misc/Pets. They all work exactly like the Maxis pillows and baskets, with the only difference that our beds can be used only by selected pets, as explained above.

All the pet beds, of course, require the Pets EP; any other EP in addition to Pets is fine.
To install the pillows and the basket, extract the packages from the attached RARs and put them in the Downloads folder (or use the Q-Xpress). To uninstall, just remove the packages from the Downloads.

The Pet Pillows and the Pet Basket borrow the texture from the Maxis' "The Basket Experience"; so, in order to create a recolour for our pet beds, select from the Object Workshop list (subsection General->Pets) the entry "The Basket Experience" (internal name: "Pet Bed - Basket - Wicker").
For the same reason, all the recolors that you download (or create) for the Maxis basket will automatically apply to all our pet beds, too.

Please DO NOT CLONE and DO NOT REPOST ANYWHERE. Recolours are fully allowed, but don't include the mesh in your packages: provide a link to this thread, instead.
You can include these items in your lots and post the lots on free sites (NO EXCHANGE!!!), but you must credit MaryLou & Numenor and provide a link to this very thread (not just to MTS2).

Can you make a mod that "Scratchpaw Manor Pet House", "Average Paws Bedding" & "Pets' Desires House" can only used by dog; while "Pet Pillow Fantastic" & Galactix Animal Home" can only used by cat? The other pet bed ("Comfy Critter Pallet", "Comfy Pet Pillow", "Basket Experience") can be used by both cat and dog. I think this is more realistic, It's so strange to see a cat sleep in pet house.

Once again, you come up with something great, that Maxis/EA should have thought of in the first place. And once again, I thank you & I have already downloaded these. You guys are great!!!!

Thanks, I always hated all the space the large beds took up when your pet was small. can't understand why Maxis didn't do this in the first place.

If a cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind, then what about an empty desk?

My stuff may be used in uploads if 1. Credit is given, 2. link to my page provided. Happy simming!

Thank you so much, you always know how to adress the most urgent needs and wants of the simmers The things you do are the things Maxis SHOULD have done! I think it has been said quite a few times that they should hire you, at least as a "what have we done wrong this time" consultant ;P

The minds power over itself is great, what you make of things is what they become, change your thought and you change the world as you percieve it...

Thank You!!!

What was it like to see
The face of your own stability
Suddenly look away
Leaving you with the dead and hopeless?

Am loving the fact that they are only 1 tile! Great for puppies and kittens who don't need a huge bed. thanks!

This is just awesome! I always hated how I would have to zoom in on the old beds just to find my little kitten! Great idea, I am looking forward to drooling over your other new things. -Kat

Oh how I wish multiple pets could sleep on one bed... Is there anywhere to request this generally? I think it would improve game play IMMENSELY! :-)
