Default The Old Cat Lady (Mini Challenge)
The Old Cat Lady (Mini Challenge)

Backstory:
As you grew old, you never married and never had any kids. You never completed all those things you wanted to do. Now, you're an elder. Your life is drawing to a close, and you only have your cats. That's it-you're going to get married, adopt the perfect child and accomplish everything before your time is up.

PETS IS REQUIRED!

Goal:
Your goal is to complete all the mainobjectives before her time is up. You may complete the extra objectives too. You only have 31 days to do everything. You lose the challenge if you don't complete the main objectives, or if anyone in the household dies before their time.

Rules
  1. No cheats.
  2. No Lifetime Wishes that make your life longer
  3. You may also play as a male
  4. The elder lifestage must be 31 days long. No shorter, no longer.

Main Objectives
  • Get Married
  • Adopt a child the same gender as you after marriage
  • Reach career level 5 in your chosen career.
  • Woohoo
  • Have Five cats, two must be the "founder" cats, the others children/grandchildren.
  • Go on a Vacation (WA)
  • Reach skill level 5 in any skill.

Minor Objectives
  • Reach Level 10 in one skill
  • Reach Level 5 in two skills.
  • Adopt two kids
  • Go on two Vacations (WA)

Have fun! If you think I left out something, tell me!

Hearing voices no one else can hear isn't a good sign, even in the wizarding world.

Why do you need cats? I don't see their importance in the rules.

Dang it! I forgot a goal. But uh...yeah, I guess that you're able to play without Pets. Just...it makes it fun..

Why are pets required? They're never mentioned in the rules.

Sorry, I didn't update this is in a while. I'll have to edit it soon. But Pets is optional for the cats main objective.

It took me longer than I thought it would to complete this challenge, but I wanted to let you know that I had an absolute blast playing it! My Sim (male) successfully started a family, got married (twice!), became a famous painter, and had four children before he died. I fell completely in love with the premise and enjoyed my oldie and his family (and their gang of cats) so much that I'm actually thinking about turning the family into a legacy (I would continue with another challenge, if I could make up my mind which, haha).

Anyways. Thank you so much for creating this challenge. I loved it to bits and pieces <3

Aw, thanks! I definitely didn't think that someone would finish it-actually, I didn't think that anyone would start it! That made my day!

I love this idea. The cats thing is totally perfect I also thought of using good cat lady traits like cat lover and maybe even loner to start out with and make it more challenging. I love a good short and sweet challenge since legacies are soooo long. Still loving the Sims 3 and still loving challenges like this one. Thank you for posting this!

I love this idea! But maybe you could modify it so you can also play this challenge on TS4. But still great challenge, I will definitely try it!
