Our furry friends are coming to The Sims 4 with the launch of the Cats & Dogs expansion pack. EA and Maxis announced the pack, which will be available November 10, this evening. You can check out the trailer (which will be replaced with an official version soon) above.

For the first time in the series, you’ll be able to make your own pets, thanks to the new Create a Pet tool. This lets you “design and create” your pet, letting you welcome anything from the mangiest cross-breed to the most pampered pedigree into your Sims’ lives.
You’ll also be able to “customise furry friends’ coats with crazy patterns or match the spots and stripes of an in-game pet to a real-life pet. For the first time ever, special outfits and accessories will also be available to finish off the look, and tailored personality traits ensure no two pets are alike inside-or-out.”
It’s not just cats and dogs coming to the game, though. You’ll have to look after your new pets, and to that end the expansion offers “A brand-new veterinarian business, [which] will allow players to pursue dreams of building their own veterinary clinic, hiring a dedicated staff, and diagnosing and curing pets from the occasional fleas to the more bizarre sicknesses they encounter.”
The Sims 4: Cats & Dogs will also bring the new coastal location of Brindleton Bay to the game, where you’ll be able to go on scenic walks, walk your pets, and even find stray pets to take in as your own.
