Review The fur is finally flying for the Sims in The Sims 2 Pets, the latest expansion for The Sims 2 franchise. Surprisingly, it took four expansions for Maxis to instill furry and feathered friends into the Sims' household. There was a similar expansion for the original Sims franchise in The Sims Unleashed, and The Sims 2 Pets follows much of the same formula as that expansion did in bringing felines, canines, birds and a Womrat into Sims' households. Many may be asking what a Womrat is: it's a completely fictitious hybrid, described as a genetically engineered rodent-like creature. It's basically a guinea pig-looking furball of fun...No, it doesn't tread new territory that hasn't been explored in a previous expansion, but nonetheless The Sims 2 Pets turns out to surprisingly be the most engaging and addictive expansion yet for The Sims 2.
