Re: [NEEDS INPUT] [CD] Spayed cat wont stop yowling

@Camthelion Did the cat get spayed properly ? Does it say she's neutered ? The process had a few issues in the past so could you make sure they show as neutered ?

Does it happen to all your pets or was it just the on ?

★★ Guide

I have this problem too but with a spayed dog. There are hearts around her and she whimpers. She was spayed in CAS, so I tried to un-spay her in CAS and then go to a veterinarian to spay her there, but that didn't solve the problem. Good thing is that she is actually sterile, which shows both in CAS and that the mating options are greyed out saying that she's spayed. But still annoying that she whimpers all the time.

★★★ Guide

I created a cat in CAS and I chose the option to be 'fixed' and after I went into live mode the cat pretty much immediately started showing the hearts and yowling like she was in heat.  I thought perhaps I hadn't properly chosen that option, but when the cat later got sick I took her to the vet and there was an option to 'unspay' so the game is indicating she is fixed. 


I also added the same family to another save from my library and I double checked the gender settings of the cat just in case and the 'fixed' option was definitely already selected.  So I now have the same cat in two different saves and she's showing the hearts and yowling in both saves. Standard smile
