Kitty Fish Treat (increases hunger)

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.
This is a simple cat toy that also raises your cat's hunger motive. It can act as an alternative to pet bowls, as it never needs to be refilled. It's been altered so it won't get broken down to scraps, and your cat won't get "high", like with the original catnip toy. It is a standalone object with its own GUID, so it will not alter the behavior of the original cat toy.

It also helps for those pets that somehow develop the inability to eat from a pet bowl, due to some glitch or error. This can be seen in the "Comparison" image provided: even with "boolprop controlpets on" set, the interaction isn't available to eat. With this Kitty Treat, you can avoid starving your pet when it isn't your fault.

It can be found in the Misc>Pets category ("Kitty Treat" for $35) and there aren't any incompatibilities that I'm aware of. It has a recolorable subset and, obviously, it requires The Sims 2 Pets.

I hate that stupid pet bowl glitch. This will be very useful, thanks!

I'm not sure if it's the same problem I've had, but when the sim picks up bowls to clean then refill, they usually tend to set it down backwards so pets can't eat out of them. If you turn it around, then the pets can eat.

Nice idea. I have the sippy cup for toddlers and it helps a lot for sims who are very tired. So this should help in a similar way. Thanks for thinking of it.

Oh this is so cool you made this-yes :-). I get tired of constantly turning the pet bowls back like they should be after one on my sims sets it down on an angle or backwards. Will really enjoy using this in game. Appreciate your sharing with all of us. Thanks bunches :-).
