Stretch … 1, 2, 3
Hunt … 1 … 2 … 3 … pounce
Ice wakes and since it’s too early to go anywhere, occupies himself with the toy oven.
Zep joins May at the pond. He’s sure he can catch a fish faster than her with that stick and string.
Zep heads off to find something more interesting to do and May heads back inside to warm up.
Upgrading the toilet to self-cleaning should do the trick!
A/N: For those interested, catching fish isn’t as easy as it looks … Zep is pretty sure the fish saw May’s larger outline and stayed away! lol
Upgrades will get done sooner with two Sims working on them.
Zep is victorious and presents his latest find to Tad in exchange for admiration and fish-flavored treats … lots of treats, please!
A few hours later …
Zep joins the others in the hopes of snagging a bite or two.
“Kitty Kibble is in your bowl but I’ll be glad to give you a good brushing,” Tad says with a smile.
“Stupid sink! Why do you break when it’s my turn to do dishes? Now I have to fix you and mop the floor, too. Adulting sucks!”
A/N: My daughter uses the term adulting when she’s doing things like reconciling her bank statement, pumping gas etc. … you know the responsible stuff that must be done in order to keep on having fun
The sink is fixed, the floor is clean and everybody heads to bed.
Tad acknowledges what a gem his teenage daughter is, even though she grumbles a bit more than he would like.
I love May doing her thing to help out, and your daughters saying is spot on! Zep is super wonderful!
Thank you, dear!
Tad is lucky and he knows it 🙂
Am really glad I added Zep to this family!
I can see who is your favourite member on the family: Zed!
hee hee hee
Zep is funny and sweet. I love all the things he brings home, but I’m sure his owners are nto always pleased lol
Kind of like our cat, LOL
We rarely appreciate the critters she brings in through her cat flap!
Zed is so cute! and, so helpful! 😉
I agree! Being able to hunt and successfully catch things is a big help when they need money and Sims aren’t allowed to have jobs.
Zep is very disciplined, he does his stretching everyday and works on his hunting skills.. I didn’t know cats could fish, I am learning a lot from reading your story! I wish I could upgrade my own toilet to self cleaning, the stuff you can do in the Sims! It would be nice if the sink didn’t break.. Adulting has it’s rewards but from what I remember it was stressful at times.. Great chapter!
Thanks for reading & commenting!
I pay attention to mood and have Zep use the scratching post regularly so he isn’t inclined to scratch up their furniture.
As hunting skill increases, he can be directed to seek out a particular type. If a Sim tells him to go find x, Zep will bring it back to present if a successful catch.
Self cleaning toilets would be a lovely thing to have!
I agree. Adulting does have rewards in addition to particularly stressful moments.
Just wait until Zep brings in a woodpecker. 😉
You just had to go there, hmm?!
