I feel like the main issue with Cats & Dogs is that they don't have their own UI. You can see their traits on the list of people your Sim knows, but what about family trees? What if we want to create many generations of pets? I had an idea - creators of the game should add a family tree button to that list:
And then I had another idea - this button should be added to every person your Sim knows, that way we could easily see who's related to who.
Family trees themselves should be improved as well. I like that you can see your siblings and many generations of people before you and after you, but what about the rest of the family? Personally I find it annoying how you have to click on each Sim to find other relatives, in my opinion the family tree should also show all of your Sims' uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews and it would be so much easier to see the whole family.
What family trees currently look like:
What they should look like after clicking on any person in the family:
