Are you using ANY Store or CC? That's the only way I ever had the pet freeze.

It only happens with some, not all items. Mainly certain chairs & beds.

I had to use resetSim cheat with the pets name. If that's not working I am sorry Frown

It's the only problem & solution that I am aware of.

Good luck.

Re: Sims/pets keep freezing

you could have  a npc sim stuck somewhere in the world try the resetsim cheat use the first cheat this will reset all sims the second cheat is for one sim


ctrl+shift+c hold all 3 together in the menu bar that appears at the top of the screen type in resetsim*   (hit enter ) this will send all sims inculdeing your own back to their homes


ctrl+shift+c hold all 3 together in the menu bar that appears at the top of the screen type resetsim first name last (of your sim ) hit enter

solutions are 50/50 they work for some and not others and vice versa
