This is a conflict between the Get Famous Expansion Pack and the Cats & Dogs Expansion Pack

 

 

**This following part is strictly a suggestion: if the celebrity is on the positive side of reputation they do not react in disgust to non-celebrity sims, but bad reputation should still react in disgust to non-celebrity sims.**

My Sim is a 4 star celebrity. Every single time her cat comes remotely near her, she reacts in disgust. I think we can all logically agree the cat doesn't give a crap if my Sim, its companion, is a celebrity, and the cat is certainly not fangirling over her. It's just a minor tick, but when every other action is interrupted by "React in disgust" it can be disruptive for the player. The Sim can be sitting down eating while the cat is running around, and she'll stop eating to go "Ah, sul... ugh..." 4 or 5 times over the course of a meal. I saw this was a known problem with other human Sims, back in 2018. If this one could get fixed eventually too that would be stellar.

 

This is a single Sim living alone in a rather small-ish house, single story on a 20x30 lot. I could build a bigger house so she runs into her cat less often but that's kind of sad...

 

Edit as I'm playing the game right now and I just noticed, the Sim reacts in disgust even if the pet is asleep. She has a pristine reputation.

Famous Sims react to almost anybody, even their own children with disgust, and yes, pets too, even though, they have high relationship scores. Completely unnecessary, I don't think it's a bug, but a designflaw.

What do you expect to see? The celebrity sim to not react to the pets or for disgust  reaction to override current actions.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Not sure because I never had a celebrity sim with pets before and I just so happened to coincided with installing eco pack and stuff packs. 

 

Suggestion: Pet should have fame level tied to their owners so that if their owner is 5 star, the pet is 5 star, thus they won't have a negative reaction. Or the pet should have an adjustable fame level for the same reason.

I'm having the same problem. Sim is a global superstar and has a cat and a dog and she will always react in disgust to both of them. She is companions with the cat and she still will react in disgust anytime the cat enters a room Frown
