Create the perfect pet for your Sims to train, play with, and love. Choose from dozens of the most popular dog and cat breeds like Dalmatians and Persians. Or create a unique cat or dog by customizing their features and body type. Then pick a personality—you decide if your Sims’ Siamese is cowardly, gifted, or lazy. Your Sims can teach their pets tricks, take them for a romp in the park to meet other furry friends, and much more as they share a lifetime together. But remember, your Sims’ pets have minds of their own—cats claw sofas, dogs roll in flowerbeds, and worse. Expect the unexpected!

Don't get me wrong. The game is fun. It's just not worth that much money. You get a few new pieces of furniture and buildings items of course, and you can create cats and dogs. The selection when it comes to making these animals is fantastic - there are tons of different colors, more eyes for cats than for humans, and most, if not all, the species are available.
You can give your animals three different jobs: security, pet superstar, and another one I can't remember. They live for a long, long time...almost as long as the average human actually, which can get annoying after awhile. You can train them to do tricks and enter them in pet shows.
But pets are a lot of work. If your Sims don't want a cat or dog, then there's not much else to the expansion pack. You can buy a bird cage or a gerbil but you barely see the animal. There are no other choices. I was kind of hoping for reptile varieties and maybe some weird things, but Maxis decided to end it there.
So, unless you plan on every family owning a pet (and I repeat, it's of work), then don't spend your money on this. There's just not enough to it.
What is disappointing overall is that you can't have full control of the animals. Plus there are few added objects but I did like some of the new construction option.
Of course the add-on sounds fun and all but really, this isn't worth the price. Bottom line is that I could have wasted this not well-spend money for something very likely, educative ... like the Sims 2 Open Business expansion for example.
