Re: My dog randomly passes out from exhaustion/wont eat on its own.

● Retrained our good Doggos and Cattos so that they can eat also not on command. So they will no longer eat only when they are told. Give them all the treats anyway - they are such good bois and girls!

Fixed in Patch 1.65.77/ 1.30

If you're still experiencing this issue, please create a new thread.

 

This is the second attempt to fix this do hopefully for real this time

Re: [TO TEST] [CD] Dogs won't eat unless they're told to

★★★★ Guide
I've had this no-eating issue with my dogs as well, but as far as I can tell, the fireplace isn't an issue with them (it's not turned on by default though). The do have other quirks, like one is afraid of electronics and another is obsessed with the fridge (I think). I don't have the PP mod installed, but I'll bet there's probably some queue droppage somewhere. Also noticed, this issue more as my pets have aged (they're all elders at the moment). So, perhaps they're senile. My elder sims in the household already have a death wish, exercising until exhaustion, so I wouldn't be surprised. hah! (j/k on the senility bit)

I've also been having this problem with my 3 cats but I don't own a fireplace. Only one of the cats refuses to autonomously eat, and when one of the other two go to eat the cats who aren't eating are obsessed with watching the one eat and always have the empty pet bowl thought bubble above their heads. I have three different food bowls. It could be an obsession thing generally, but I don't own a fireplace for them to be obsessed with.

Does the cat eat when you direct her too ?

Yes. I have to send her to eat, otherwise she'll keep meowing at the full bowl and having a negative moodlet. When I make my sim ask what was wrong, she said she was hungry.

I don't have a fireplace tho. 

And my cat says there isn't food in the bowl while there is.  So I don't think it's an obsession thing?

I think it has something to do with the automatic food dispenser cause on normal bowls without the dispenser, she eats.

There's a few in here that don't have a fireplace. Maybe it's not the cause.
