The Sims Life & Times

The Sims, as anyone who plays can attest, takes on a life of its own. I created this blog so I could keep track of my sim stories and share them with others. I've always wanted to write stories but unfortunately I'm not very good at it lol I am hoping that just as my house building has improved so will my storytelling abilities.

My main family is called the Snookers. My goal was to move 1 sim into Relfamtown and see how the population would grow. I hope you will follow along with me.
If you would like to see all the stories in the Relfamtown series then click on Snooker Chronicles to the left and start at the bottom of the list.

UPDATE - Well since I had a major meltdown and lost Relfamtown, the Snookers are now in Sim Heaven and there will not be anymore updates on them :-( Out of the bad comes good though and Tesime is a new neighbourhood that I created for the Test of Time challenge. I hope you will enjoy their stories as well !

SimSwap Pets Challenge - Igabel Family

The goal of this challenge was to have a 5th generation heir/heiress pet born which must be able to be linked back to the original founder.

This is my mom Anime Igabel. She decided to move to the country when she was really young with Ante, her cat. As you can see Anime did things in her own way.

Not wanting to take a conventional job mom decided to open a shop. She would only sell items that pets could use and hoped it would be enough to make ends meet. Her and Ante did not need much but the little shack they lived in could do with some upgrading. While talking to one of her customers she learned of a company that was looking to hire a cat for a commercial. Since everyone loved Ante and thought she was the "cats meow" Anime sent her for an audition.

Of course Ante was a hit and got the job ! With the extra money coming in mom was able to add some things to the house like a real bathroom. Space was definately at a premium.

Mom loved cats ! If she knew a cat was a stray then she had to make friends and adopt it. Before long there were little kittens running around. Benny and Ante had hit it off and produced the most precious babies - Kleokatra, Rover and Spot.

Around this time Mom started going out with Joe Carr. He was a nice guy she said but not really marriage material. Of course before she knew it she was "in the family way" with me. She certainly didn't mind since her clock was ticking so loud it was keeping her awake at nite.

Here I am at my 3rd birthday. Mom always made me feel special even though most times it was just the 2 of us. There weren't many people living close by. Of course the bevy of cats we were collecting kept us company !

By this time things were improving vastly. Our house was expanding as was the business Mom started. Money was no longer a problem and the pets were reaching the top of their careers and learning lots of commands.

With the good must come the bad. Mom celebrated her birthday and was now a very striking looking elder and her first cat Ante got a call from the great big cat playhouse in the sky. RIP Ante we love you !

That next year was an eventful one for me. I finally became a teenager which was great as I could then help mom out in the shop more often. She had been feeling ill and could use all the help I could give her. Not long after that one day she had a heart attack and died. We all took it very hard.

I made it through high school which I know Mom would have been so proud of ! Then I could devote my time to the cats who were growing in ranks and the business. By this time Kleokatra had met Sweets and they had Slash and Slash had grown up to have Gary and Daisy with Kim. My how times flies when there are kittens around ! It was at this time I added a graveyard to the garden. I wanted a nice place for Mom and the cats to rest in peace and then I could visit them whenever I liked.

Daisy was an acrobat ! I actually thought about sending her to join the circus. Instead she had Kodi and Trixie with Gary which completed this challenge of having a 5th generation heir and heiress born.

Final score:

extreme start - 10 pts
8 cats made it to the top of their career - 4 pts
8 kittens born on the lot - 8 pts
1 stray moved in - 1 pt
3 tombstones - 1 1/2 pts
lot worth §142,744 - 14 pts

Total points 38 1/2

I thought you said you weren't good at writing stories? Although it was very short, I believe for a challenge story this was remarkable. Great job!

Cool! I've never tried getting pets through to certain generations - that's a neat idea. Very good story, too! AND - it came through my RSS right in Outlook so I could see it there! That was fun! LOL Catch ya on the 'Box, chick. ;-)
