The Sims 2 Pets expansion pack
The Sims 2 Pets was the fourth expansion pack released by Electronic Arts (EA) on October 18, 2006. The Sims Pets incorporated allowing Sims to own cats, dogs, guinea pigs, and birds. Players can choose from dozens of dog and cat breeds or create their own. Players can even cross breed pets to create unique breeds. Their personalities and traits can be altered as well. In addition to adding the pets with the expansion, Sims can train their pets and get them jobs.
Insert The Sims 2 Pets disc into your computer.
Click "Next" on the welcome screen of the installer.
Select the directory you would like to install Sims 2 Pets to and click "Next."
Pick a name (or use the one available) for the Start Menu folder and click "Next."
Check the box next to "Create a desktop icon" if you'd like one and click "Next."
Verify the name and location for the installation and click "Install."
Wait for the installation to complete. The installation can take a little while, depending on your computer speed. Insert the next disc, if required (a screen would pop up asking for it).
Click "Finish" when the installation completes.
