Pets are finally here, but are they a waste? (Closed)
Anyone else as disappointed with the new upgrade to be able to own pets. Neither us nor our little people can interact with the animals. They just walk around like little ghosts. After such a long wait for the pets to only find they're a waste of money, well, that really grinds my gears. Anybody else feel the same way?
Answer from: JojoNicole
Yea all u can do is move the pets around which I think you should have a player card for them and get to have them and interact with them like regular people. I was so excited for the update but the only good from the update is the new kids toys!

I haven't got one yet and I'm happy I didn't now I know I can stop saving for that stupid puppy thanks for posting this you just saved this girl from wasting her money!

Hmm now all of a sudden the dog I bought that was walking around like a ghost, is now at its owners feet wherever she moves to. Though they still can't interact, at least do dog shows to know about the owner and now follows her. I guess the creator of the game changed something, but as long as they still can't interact, I think it's a waste.

Oops! Too late for me. I bought 3 dogs and 2 cats. I'm a little scared on them in the yard when they huddle in a pack and move sooooo slow. Haha. I thought they would interact with the little people at least, but they don't. I can take the little black kitten and the 2 little black pups, but the lab just floats around and looks a bit under nourished. I've tried selling them, no go and you can't give them back for any type of refund. You can pick them up by tapping on them but they just change positions and meow or bark. Maybe the spider will be different when I save up enough money!

You can put the pet in your decoration box to get rid of it. It holds it there like furniture. Do the pets interact differently with the kids? Do they learn to interact in time?

I have 25 pets or more in all (I have nothing else to do with all my money) and I hate it. When they get on my nerves I just put them in the pool and they stay. I'm going to submit a complaint because the pets suck, we don't even get to name them, they can't have toys, they can't interact with each other or the humans, and they walk around all day like they own the place. I WISH I COULD SELL THEM!!!!

A virtual family glitch- go to settings and change the date to 2038 or higher and you will have a lot of money. BUT if you have games like stardom it will mess your stardom game up so I just deleted mines. If you get to a certain amount of money in your game, they will stop charging you for everything. Keep doing the glitch until you're satisfied.

Yeah, I have 6 pets and they are a pain. I totally agree, it's a waste. They are like robots, you can't interact with them, you don't know their names, they don't have player cards or anything. The only thing I can make them do is eat. But did you know, if you have a meal they will beg.
THEY'RE A WASTE!!
Answer from: FairyxDustxxxxx
With the new update you can pet the pets but its still a bit pointless. I already submitted a complaint about it
Answer from: Joe123
Actually if you place one of your family members on them while they are sitting(you can just make them sit) then it will say petting.
Answer from: KikkiK
You can pet them. If you want them to stop doing stuff just put them in a pool or put a couch I front of an unused room so it's blocking the exit, put the pets in there and voila they can't get out

I am on level 3 so far and I got a black kitten with the first generation of people and I actually think the pets are like real pets because real pets just meow, eat, and walk around like coasts but they also cuddle. If you put a person on your pet his action will say petting. Also a better way to make money than that other guy said is set the time of year on your phone/tablet to like 1900 and then goto your game and take a shower or something then change the year back to today's year. because virtual families is on time it will give you a lot of money.

I just got a black kitten on v fam. 2 and am so dissapointed because i cant name it or see what its doing or anything! can i sell it or something?
Answer from: DiaLove030
Well, virtual families is about the families right? I guess the pets are technically just meant to be like a walking 'toy' that the kids can play with. I mean the kids can pet the pets and then the pets will sometimes follow them. I have a kitty and she follows anyone that crosses her eyes unless she is going for her food, I think it was a great update, and its just a small little add-in to the family :) Add me in Game Center if you'd like, DiaLove030, and just keep in mind that if you handle your family really well (mostly the parents) and praise them a lot for working on their careers, they become 'happy workaholics', meaning they want to work because they have their mind set on the promotions, and your praises. I hope this helped some people!

The people can only pet them and hey only eat and sleep nearly any interaction. They could at least have babies (which is what I thought they did) Nope they do nothing.

If you make your pet mad it hides in the bush. You make it mad by tapping it a lot then it makes sad sound and hides in bush. I do this often because I have 5 dogs and 4 cats:( but sadly it comes back out so I don't think you can make them go away:(
Answer from: Nope
I have a cat and a dog but they're not a waste. The people can interact with them.
Answer from: Kenzie
If you drag a person on a dog the will pet them. I actually like the dogs. You probably didnt even try to make you person interact with them did you? It is funny when they whimper at the table when the people are eating a meal
Answer from: Kk
You can make your people pet them
Answer from: Hey
