3 Styles of Pet houses for your cats and dogs!

I have for your 3 new houses in your choice of small (cat or small dog) or large (big dog) versions. I call the small version "cats" and the large version, "dogs" but as you know, any of the pets will use the houses so it doesn't really matter what you want to use them for. However, I just thought the pet houses looked a little goofy when a cat used them since they were all so huge and wanted the option for smaller versions as well. If you DO have a big dog on the property with a small house, he may try to use it and look a little weird sticking out of it. Just letting you know.

The three styles are:

Sultan's Tabernacle - (a little high on the poly count, but it's a maxis item so I didn't want to change it too much) 1792 poly
Castle - 648 poly - 2 presets- With and without flower stencils
Country Pet House - 165 poly - 3 presets- plumbob stencil, paws stencil, and no stencil

Can I recolor them?
Yes! They are all 3 channel recolorable

Where are they?
Found under pet essentials

Will they work for your setup?
You need Pets, of course, and I have all patches installed. I don't know if you need to also but thought I would let you know.

What can you do with them?
Feel free to recolor, retexture, or anything you like. Just please credit me for the meshes or textures and please only upload on MTS.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
