Hello again!
I have made another career for you all. This time it is a pet sitter career. It is kind of based from the Nintendo DS game called 'Pet Vet' because I based my wages and such off of it. Hope you guys like it. :P

Also, I take requests.





Career is compatible with all EPs.

There are some very cute titles here! I wonder if you'd be willing to do it with a couple of tweeks? One would be to put the horse sitter career much higher up on the ladder since taking care of horse requires more expertise than taking care of the average pet. Maybe even switch out horse care with something like exotic pet sitter or the like. Another tweek would be the salary bases. I would love to use this "career" but would see it as something more as a part-time position or something someone without much ambition would fall into and would therefore not provide a great deal of money. Maybe at the height of it, the person could open a shelter? Just some thoughts.

This career looks really cool!
One question, though... I don't see a 'Chance B Bad' result... does this mean there isn't one, or has it merely not been listed?
If it doesn't exist, then I'll be sure to choose option 'B' on level 6! lol

Those are some good thoughts. I may consider those. ^^

It is 'stay home from work'. Sometimes sims with the pleasure aspiration get it.

Oops! It has one, it just isn't listed. Thanks for pointing it out. xD

Yay Finally something for the Kat family because i usually make her a pet breeder but since even with cheats you still have limited control over pets i never play her much or pets in general so this will actually make her interesting.

Is there an option that when you call 'Service', you can hire a Pet-sitter, too?

No, this is just a career for your sims. No special NPC, sorry.

When I install this career the default science career disappears. But strangely I get science career under the name of Pet Sitter.

Ok, maybe I'm wrong and it's not its fault. It seems that its language is set to English, while my game is set to English UK. I opened the career in SimPe, then via Bidou Editor I saw that in English UK version it's a science career, indeed, but in just English the levels are those of Pet Sitter.

Edit: Alright, it was definitely the language problem only. Some other career overwrites science. I ticked "english only" in Bidou editor to remove another English language version for this one and now I can correctly see career levels and everything in the game.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention, I probably forgot to set it's language, as it was my first career.
I'll fix it right away~
