    Hey guys. Let's have some fun with this pro-only thread in the forum. What small pets are you going to have for your Sims?.

    I think I will get a hamster for my sim because I have one in real life, and maybe a Bubalus? But what is a Bubalus?

    It's called a hamster ball, although they work with several other small animals (that aren't hamsters) as well. Guinea pigs though should never be put into one of those. Their backs are quite fragile. Something to do with the spine, I think, and they could potentially break their backs and perish if they run around in those.

    It's one of the voidcritters featured in The Sims 4. It looks like a duck mixed with a sheep. You can see it in the trailer.

    Also, there are no hamsters in The Sims 4, remember? I told you that. The Guru dude mistook the guinea pig for a hamster. No hamster appears in the trailer, unless you count that Sim costume, although it could be a mouse.

    Well, I think it looks like a guinea pig as well, but that "Guru dude" (heh) made the pack, so he should know. :wink:

    Hey, even gurus can be wrong :3. Heck, I don't think many people are that knowledgeable about animals. You just have to look at Youtube comments to realize it. People don't know jack about dog breeds too. My neighbour from ages ago thought my German Shepherd was a lab.

    Well you could still get that guinea pig. Just imagine it's an oddly shaped hamster.

    I'm going to start making room for my critter cages! I just downsized my house and I think that was a mistake. Maybe I'll just move back LOL.

    I think they'll survive. :) If they could get through the toddler frenzy they'll get through this.
    Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen. 😊

    Call me a sucker but I'll definitely be buying this bad boy. One of the few SPs I'm actually really interested in! I totally get where some folks are coming from, but color me not surprised by this move. Still, I'm excited for it, so I'll be purchasing :) And I'm glad I'm only just now finding out about it -- less time to wait! :0

    I just upsized my house for this very reason, and I'm glad I did. My new house is bigger and roomier, even though it's on the same lot my old house was on!

    My son was looking over my shoulder while I was reading and saw your avi and demanded I go to the gallery and download it! He's going to get the kitty for himself when he gets on. You now have two new fans ;) . Now I will have another kitty to play with the fish in the new fish tank table!

    I decided to name my future rat Darktan. Fans of Terry Pratchett should get the reference.

    Thank you for a positive place to hang in, life is a bit difficult at the moment so it is nice to have a calm corner to enjoy things in.

    I am really looking forward to the livestream on this one, never got the Laundry Pack but this could be something for me. Hope they will show us all the different kinds of pets that are in it. Rats especially for my part :)

    The trailer showed them all. You can get a rat, guinea pig, african pygmy hedgehog, and a mini bubalus (voidcritter)
