I have this issue too, only with brand new save 7/25/2021. The existing saved games have their pets
oh and the toddlers are STILL standing outside the house
After adding the new expansion country living why do my NPCs not have pets when you try to play them and it doesn't show them in the picture
@treebeesue74 I've merged your post with the master thread for this issue. Feel free to click Me Too on the first post, and you can keep an eye on this thread for updates.
Pets in pre-existing households now are back with their households. Their absence just was not right - Pets are as much part of the Household as the Ghosts… just sayin’.
Fixed in Patch 1.77.146/1.45
If you're still experiencing this issue, please create a new thread.
Please be aware that for any saves started between Patch 1.77.131 and 1.77.146 the pets will not magically appear again but you can just replace the version with a new gallery saved version. They are back in new saves.
