@crinrictShinyGeodude This happened to me when I added a dog to my household. I assumed at first that it was some kind of "Congratulations for getting a dog! Here's some extra funds." thing at first, but I guess not.

This has happened to me to, I was trying to add a new dog into my household and it reset my household funds to 27,000 from 450,000. Took me weeks to get to there as well.

Lost 5 million simeleons out of nowhere!

★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 1.54.120.1220
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Cats and Dogs, Seasons, Vintage Glamour
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? When you add a new household member from editing members in manage households
What happens when the bug occurs? I added a dog or two to the household, and then when I went back to play the household, it went from 5 million simeleons to 100,000 simeleons. All of my hard work by my sims is gone.
What do you expect to see? Containing the same amount of money unless I spent it on objects from build mode.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. It happened after I downloaded the cats and dogs package

I don't know what happened! I added two dogs to my household, and most of my money disappeared like I spent ALL 5 million simeleons! Is there a way to get it back or can someone please explain why this happened?

@StarryMight Yes thank you! But apparently there is no solution on that forum neither. Let's hope EA fixes this and makes a new update fixing this!

Happened to me as well after I added dog to my housshold, but I had less than 22 000 simoleons so I actually gained from it, but it annoys me too, I hope this bug will be fixed very soon.

You can use a cheat to get the money back. That’s what I’ve been doing. After contol, alt, C pops up, type testingcheats true. Then use the cheat money X (x being whatever amount of money you want in your household funds, minus the commas- so if you want 5 mil you’d type money 5000000). I’ve been using that one a lot to adjust the funds whenever it glitches.
