[FIXED] [CD] Kitten/Puppies not added to household after birth
[ Edited ]
★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? pets patch
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All expansions and packs.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? This bug occurs every time my female cat goes into labour. I have tried exiting without saving several times, but this bug occurs each time.
What happens when the bug occurs? Multiple errors relating to breeding cats. Took 12 attempts to get the cat pregnant, then on three separate occasions the kittens failed to be added to household. After the most recent attempt, the female cat registers as spayed when attempting to mate, but not when going to the vet to attempt to undo the desexing process.
What do you expect to see? I would really like it if the breeding process actually worked properly. It took me 12 attempts (12 sim days) to get the female pregnant in the first place.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Cats and Dogs patch.

 Whenever my female cat goes into labor to deliver kittens, the labor appears to proceed as normal, and the screen pops up to name the kittens, but the kittens themselves do not appear in the household.


I exited without saving three times, and I remained on the lot for 6-12 hours each test, but the kittens did not appear.


The most recent occasion, my cat delivered twins. After 6 hours, I had my sim leave the lot to go to her vet surgery - when she returned one of the kittens had been added to the household but not the other. I tried having the sim leave the lot again, but it did not work (she was away for about 4 hours that time). I also tried entering build mode on the home lot, but this was not successful either. The second kitten did not appear. 


On attempting to breed my adult cats again to test whether the problem recurs, I received an error message stating "fixed pets cannot mate". However, on taking the cats to the vet clinic to unspay/deneuter them, neither one is registering as desexed on the check-in machine. I have no idea what is going on.
