Can we make a list of what Cats and Dogs Thought bubbles mean?

I could start off by my finding out that the little "dog bubble" over my dog's head meant that he needed some love and attention. My Sim had apparently left him by himself in the park when watching a chess game.

    Food bowl = hungry
    Hearts coming from an unneutered/unspayed animal = in heat

    That all I have so far.
    I came here hoping there was already a list of what the thought bubbles meant because I, too, was interested.

    Leash = wants a walk
    Sad dog face = wants affection
    Fire hydrant = needs to pee
    Tennis ball = wants to play fetch

    I think the lampshade one is after they've been to the vet.

    Ah, that's not really a lampshade. It's a cone. After a pet is neutered, they must wear the cone to keep them from chewing the stitches. I know, I had two male Beagles and it was recommended that they be neutered at six months of age. Would have been a disaster had they been able to chew themselves after such surgery. It's quite likely used any time the dog has stitches. Dogs are funny when they walk around with those on. It's almost as if it affects their sense of equilibrium, or something. Of course, one of my dogs was a true comedian, he could have been 'milking' it.

    What does the pillow thought bubble mean? My pet keeps showing this one but there is never anything wrong with it.

    @simmer15 This is probably wrong (I haven't noticed that thought bubble yet), but it's possible your pet wants to sleep on a pet bed. Do you have one in the house? If not, try putting one down and see if that helps.

    Fire = angry. My kitty in my new game was angry tonight.

    What does it mean when there is a paw with an exclamation sign over it in the bubble of the dog?

    I"m having a little trouble with some of these think bubbles with my cat.
    She is thinking of two cats in front of a big pink love heart. Does this mean she wants to find a cat to mate with? Or that she wants a cat friend? I also have a dog, but when they were a kitten and puppy they didn't get along that great, so I'm wondering if my cat just wants an animal friend other than the dog.

    The cat is in heat and wants to mate with another cat.

    What does it mean when my dog has a hand above his head?

    I've noticed my dog barking with a thought bubble similar to what the people express when something is in the way of a task (the footprints one) but I don't understand what it means coming from him? He does it randomly, and doesn't seem to be related to him trying to get somewhere so I don't understand it.

    The paw with exclamation in it means the pet is sick.. take them to a vet
