The Whittakers have a pretty big garden, and I've got a few catnip plants (you can't plant catnip in previous iterations of The Sims, only catnip toys). Here's Julia feeding Olly some homegrown catnip. I decided it was time to get the cats spayed/neutered. Lily was first up! She went into a special machine to have it done. She came out with a cone of shame. Poor kitty. Thankfully the cone didn't last long! Little James decided he wanted to pet the cute kitty. (You can see the rocket that Julia is building in the garden). One thing I don't like about Sims 4 is how a female Sim doesn't age whilst pregnant. I have no idea why this is. Julia and Mark were originally the same age, but now Julia's three days younger. I wanted James to have a sibling, so I adopted a baby girl, Maddie. It was also 'Spooky Day' (a festival I created to be an equivalent to Halloween), hence Mark's costume. Luckily Maddie didn't seem to be too upset by it! James wore his own little costume too! I wanted to get the other cats neutered the day Lily got done, but the vets was running a bit slow and it got late. So, I took the others back a few days later. I noticed this bizarre-looking blue dog with what looks like smoke or steam above it... it later looked normal, so I can only assume that this is some weird Sims illness. In fact, here's the dog looking normal! Plus Olly with his cone of shame. Here's Maddie as a toddler. She looks so pretty! Mm, late night chicken nuggets! The kids are sharing a room for now. I might expand the house a bit when they're older to give them their own spaces. One HarvestFest tradition is the appearance of gnomes in the house. Mark tried to appease this one with pie... no dice. You have to give them the right gift or they're not happy. It ended up that *all* the gnomes were displeased so I just sold them haha. Olly ran away again. I don't know why he's run away twice, I make sure I look after them both properly! Maybe it just happens sometimes for no real reason. Mmm, Grand Meal time! You get a choice of Grand Meals to make. I chose a turkey one. This also happened to be the first time that Julia and Mark sat down for a meal together! I love that toddlers can grab their own portion of a group meal in Sims 4. It's so convenient! Playtime with Daddy!
Last time we saw the Whittakers, it was late on Love Day. They managed all their traditions! This can be what happens when you eat ice cream... brain freeze! Uh oh, looks like Lily's frightened of the toilet. Poor kitty. Julia got pregnant! This is the standard microscope in Sims 4... pretty huge! She needed to build some Fitness skill for work, so I sent her to the Movers and Shakers gym. This lot comes with a trainer, and you get a special moodlet when s/he pays attention to you. (It's not always the same person each time). Oh no - cat fight! Olly won this one. Normally they get on pretty well. Julia went to Geek Con and tried the Ultimate Gaming Test. Sadly, she didn't do very well. Never mind, she can level up her Video Gaming skill and she'll be much better prepared the next time Geek Con comes around! Cats get in the weirdest places. Lily tried out the fridge for size. Hey! Get out of the meatballs, Olly! Fast forward a couple of days, and Julia's ready to give birth! She had a son, James. The day of James's birth was also Summer Fest (a holiday I always create, since there are no pre-set summer holidays). What better way to celebrate than by dancing to Walking On Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves!! (Aside from songs created for the game, real-life bands often contribute Simlish versions of their own songs). Lily decided to photobomb in an... unfortunate manner. James as a toddler! I decided he could have the Inquisitive trait, and eventually be like Julia. I decided to give him glasses, cos he looks stinking cute in them! Can anyone guess James's colour? I've done this forever, assign my Sims a colour and have them wear clothes in that colour. Olly ran away briefly, but he soon returned! He was a little stinky when he came back. Julia got a Smelly Pet moodlet which referenced the great Smelly Cat song by Phoebe Buffay from Friends, but I didn't get the screenshot on the laptop. I'll attach the photo I got with my phone later. Lily had kittens! These are Max and Billy, and they look exactly like Olly. Once they grow up I'll get them all neutered/spayed and then sell Max and Billy, because it's a fairly small house and four cats is a bit much. I went into Plan Outfits to tweak a couple of minor things, and found the Clothing category for cats. Here's Olly modelling a, umm, cheese sandwich, and a top hat. He looked ridiculous! I decided to just stick with collars for him and Lily.
