I also got tired of the annoying meowing and barking, and stray horses ending up in my living room!
LOL! I've never had horses in my living room, but I also got very sick of the strays. I just wish pets weren't so annoying in the game. Having pets in The Sims tends to take over the house and when autonomous my sims would pick pets over their babies and many times, even interrupt a suggestion I gave to feed or change a child. Which I really got tired of happening! So pets are rare in my active homes and I finally used register to put an end to stray dogs, cats and even pesky raccoons. It has not stopped other sims from adopting pets, which is what I was afraid may happen, so it's all good.

Glad to know about the baby thing too. I don't mind a surprise here or there, so I don't exactly "micro manage" babies, but I do get curious now and then and like check to see.

Littlelambsy, on the elder stray thing again. I think I asked about this once before, but I don't remember where we ended up. Is it possible that your elder stage for dogs and cats happens to be extremely short as in something like 3 sim days or less? I mean, I get elder strays too but they still seem to have plenty of life left in them at the time they show up. With a longer elder stage, there is more of a chance that they wouldn't really be on death's door so soon.

I just checked my settings and I have dogs at 99 days and cats at 111 days. So I dont know why they kept coming to my sims when on their last legs. I dont know why EA would make most strays elders and not adults. The only one I had that was younger was the dreaded white puppy that I forcefully adopted and blew up my game! ... we won't go there lol

Their elder stages are 99 and 111 days or their entire lives are? Sorry, if their elder stages alone are that long then I still have no idea why you were experiencing that with such frequency.

I've had the reverse happening: the horse of one of my families kept getting stuck in the neighbours' living room. I have no idea how she got there or why. :-o
