The Crazy Cat Lady Challenge

This is my attempt at a pretty new challenge called The Crazy Cat Lady Challenge written by a member of the TS2Challenges Yahoo Group. You can find the rules there.

Lookie what we have here. Looks like I'm putting the elder version of myself through even more hell. I rolled the die to determine everything for her and the cats. Miss Rachelle rolled Romance, ugh, and a Life Time Want of 20 loves, yeah, there's no time for that! The cats pretty much have very medium personalities. Not a genius in the bunch though. There is a theme to their names which isn't too hard but where some of the names came from is.

Rachelle had the highest relationship with Jewel so she set about getting the relationship high enough to get Jewel to try for a kitten. She finally did and Jewel tried for kittens with Tori who was supposed to be male. While they were busy trying. . .

Bad cats! Rachelle scolded each one and they never did it again.

She set about training each cat one by one. I thought that I'd just pick whichever still was on the top and it would stay the same all the time. I think I was wrong.

This cleanly man is Remus. He walked by one day and Rachelle is a romance sim, and they liked each other. This is their first date. Once it got to dream date he started cleaning. It was awesome! And what was Rachelle doing?

I think she needed it.

She was very appreciative. Afterall she couldn't afford a maid yet.

The trying for a kitten never worked, so much for every time Prima Guide. This is Frankie. He was the only cat she could afford that wasn't a kitten.

She loved him just the same.

I took awhile but she was eventually able to afford a trainer. She came about 4 times.

Rachelle found some time for leisure activities.

And Reemus was a cat lover too.

On one of their many dates they both rolled wants to get engaged and Rachelle didn't have a fear, so, why not? Unfortunately they will never marry since the house is full. That's what happens when you get romantically involved with a crazy cat lady Remus.

Fight!

I have no idea who started it, but I know who ended it. This wasthe only fight.

Strong man Grannis was the first to reach the top of his career.

Remus brought a piano which apparently attracts Pet Trainers as much as it does nannies.

Tina, what are you watching? Where's Rachelle? Oooooh.

6

Oh no! Is it the end already!

Nope, just training McLachlan to play dead.

And 7! Yep, all 7 reached the top of their careers.

This is the last trick Tori had to learn and she did.

Jewel and Tina where watching Rachelle and Remus flirting. It was funny.

Yep, Pet Best Friends with them all. No special sunlasses either.

Then she was gone. I was rather sad.

Goodbye Racheele, at least she isn't the real Sim Me.

Yep, she was in the middle of a date with Remus.

Everyone was very sad.

You make everything look sooo easy!!!Great job! Interesting Cats..I'm thinking names of Singer's had something to do with the names...but I'm not positive cuz some of the names I don't recognize.

Great job! I think my mistake was waiting so late to bring Joe Carr in. HE didn't come into the picture until about 3 days before Katerine's death. :) I could have kept Katerine energized constantly if I had brought him in earlier.

Hum, dont' know where the cats names came from.

Awesome job Rachel! whew and a plat urn, well done .. omg but in the middle of the date, poor Remus!

Wow, you have to have had the best score ever! I forgot you have so many cat coat colors unlocked. She did very well for a Romance sim. And I see the singer name theme: Jewel, Sarah McLachlan, Tori Amos, Tina... Turner? I'm gonna pretend it's Turner because that makes me giggle. The other two I'm lost on.

Kerry said...

Wow, you did make that look easy! All the good stuff, hardly any penalties--very good! That was a funny response from Reemus, though, when she died mid-date. Will your other sims be able to adopt all those well-trained cats now?

Rubywyld said...

Should have known that you could handle a few cats after all that Toddler Mainia ;) Are the names from Lillith Fair? ...singers who appeared on Oprah? LOL

Awsome job as usual girl! What's up with your hula girl? I guess being one of 'Grims Girls' she doesn't really 'have' to follow the laws of gravity eh?

Melissa said...

Awesome score, Rach! Your almost making me want to play this challenge. LOL.
