This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I needed more colour choices for the litterbox, so I made these for my own use a while ago.
But as there isn't a lot of simple, basic pet stuff out there, I thought someone else might find these useful as well.

5 colours, dirty state included. The files are labeled pretty clearly, so you can pick and choose.
The grey one was supposed to be black (that's why it says "black" in the filename), but it actually looks more grey in game, so... yeah.

Do what you please with these, upload with your lots, whatever, just no uploading to paysites.
