This career has completly been written by me.
I don't like my pets just sitting at home so I give them a career for what they realistly should do while their boss is not at home: Being a Pet (and not an exterminator or circus pet,...)
I hope you like it.

Another very intriguing idea. Such an interesting concept. It makes a lot of sense. It's a clever use of the work system, to send a car to pick up your pet and whisk them off to be watched and taken off your hands for a few hours. Great idea to make it deduct funds, instead of paying. Seems ridiculous, the amount of money your pets can earn. thanks for sharing this concept!

I had a good laugh while reading the description of this "career", well done! So I had to translate it immediately into German though I'm on the wrong PC currently, so I couldn't check the translation ingame. It's just a translation of your txt-file. Text for bouth genders is exactly the same because it's just "you" (unisex) and to avoid confusions I didn't use gender-specific phrases like "Herrchen" ( = male owner of the pet) and "Frauchen" ( = female owner of the pet, regardless of the sex of the pet, of course ) Instead I just called them "Simchen", which is as such unisex again so it always fits the description of the pet in the current household. I also tried to translate the playing on words, though in lvl 4 "Training and exam" I changed it to "Training beim Flüsterer" (feels like a google-translation of a translation now Undoing the translation would be "training at the whisperer"). A fitting translation for what this is about, means a very well pet trainer, like horsewhisperer and such. As such, I added the hint that a perfect pet knows what to do and don't with the furniture, referring to lvl 1 and 2. Hope you like it, it fits the German ingame descriptions by Maxis and your description, IMO.

@Khaibit : Sorry it took me a while to answer. I had a lot on my mind.
I added the txt-file to the package (actually I make a different package for every language otherwise the package if way too big, while you only need one language and then there can't be any conflict).
It's just that I need a translation of the title "Being a Pet" too. That's not in the textfile.
I used Google translator for that (it's better in translating to German than I am) and it told me this: wobei ein Haustier
So I hope that's correct.
You can find the package with the other downloads in the zipfile: TranslatedPackagesPCBeingAPet-S2I-20160625
I didn't change the GUID so you can't have both files in game (sounds logic as you want the translated one if you download this).

Ahh, yes, I forgot. And you should forget about Google-translations, the result doesn't make sense at all

"Wobei ein Haustier" is just a part of a sentence, as such it's incomplete and it sounds as if the pet is a reason for something or did something or looks like something, you'll never know A translation of being a pet would be Haustier, that's the "present progressive included translation" and that's why Google failed: grammar.

For the job-description Trainiertes Haustier would be great. This means that your pet is taught by someone else than the family-members, too.

Thanks for the correct tanslation.
Luckily no one downloaded the translation package I think.
I guess Google screwed up, but it did better than me
