Whiskerton is the neighborhood where The Sims 2: Pets for PlayStation 2, PSP, Xbox, GameCube and Wii takes place.
Whiskerton is the default neighbourhood name and can be changed to another name.
PS2, Wii, GameCube and Xbox versionEdit
In The Sims 2: Pets, the center of the neighbourhood is a lake surrounded by land. It also features a waterfall with one lot called Lemming point which is unoccupied but a little south is a lot occupied by the Hardimans (Serenity Falls). In the far side on the right is a country like setting with two lots occupied by the Simpsons (Feline Farms) and the Newbies (Cozy Acres). South of the neighbourhood is an island with one lot (unoccupied) called Fishbone Island. Most of the neighbourhood is surrounded by pine trees.
Lives In: Cozy Acres
Both Betty and Bob have 3 points in cooking, they live in a tidy cozy home near the country fields.
- Simpson: Dottie Simpson, Oscar Simpson, Smokey Simpson, Bella Simpson, Daisy Simpson, Shnookems Simpson
Lives In: Feline Farms
Dottie owns 5 cats and lives in a house dominated with feline features. A rooster crow is heard often at this lot.
Lives In: Dogwood Forest
Buck has 3 dogs and lives in a cabin like home surrounded by pine trees and "Gnarly Carly Hardwood" trees. His home, like most homes in Whiskerton, is located in front of the lake.
Lives In: Serenity Falls
The Hardimans live in a lavish classical theme home with the waterfall located behind their home. North West from the home there is a bridge. West of the home is a beige coloured home with a red tile roof. Also East from the home is a tunnel that leads probably to Lemming Point, though it is uncertain.
Lives In: Paw Valley Road
The Townsends lives with 2 dogs. Their home is modern and features beautiful view at the back of the lake and the waterfall, in the far side and most of the sim's homes can be seen here (not interacted with though). In front a mountain range can be seen.
Lives In: Firefly Lake
The May household are 4 different Sims, meaning the are not all "May's", as they all are room-mates. The lot features a tiny beach behind the lot with an outstanding view of the lake. The home is surrounded by shrubs. Much north to the view of the lake is the country side and a canyon of sorts.
In order of price:
As the player progresses through the game by raising relationships and fulfilling wants, other Sims are unlocked. Players cannot start a game with these Sims but they can move them into already inhabited households by marrying them or simply increasing their relationship points with them enough to ask them to move in. Until a Sim is unlocked they will not appear around the Town Square or visit/be seen walking by their home. It is known that the last Townie to unlock is Hilary Duff and her Chihuahua.
Here are a list of the townies unlocked and the aspiration points totals:
- Charlie Prescott - 100
- Patty Prescott - 100
- Cindy Lou Boyle - 100
- Claire Seville - 1000
- Walter Mellon - 1000
- Wanda Mellon - 1000
- Babette Lambert - 10000
- Jim Lester - 10000
- Huckleberry Wong - 100000
- Kiki Pickens - 100000
- Timothy Pickens - 100000
- Eddie Howard - 1000000
- Joyce Howard - 1000000
- Hilary Duff - Unknown
The more pet points are spent the more the town square expands as well the shop that was shopped in. For example, if the spends enough pet points in the Pet Emporium, it will grow bigger and more objects will be available.
The Town Square has a chess table, drinking fountains, vending machines, a park fountain (which will expand), bathroom stalls and a statue (also will expand). It is unknown where it is located in Whiskerton as it doesn't show it in the neighbourhood view, but it is known to be near the lake as it sits on the edge of it and can be seen in the background.
The PSP version is smaller and only features four lots or sections and very few families. The town square is also a bit degraded. The four sections consists of Ruff Woods and cabin like section. Birmatown a city-like theme similar to Bridgeport. Pupville is a peaceful neighbourhood. Lastly, Kitty Heights, a very upscale section with a home that has two simoleon signs on top.
Lives In: Ruff Woods
Like all homes with preset families in the PSP version, the home is small and uses Bedroom set 1, studio, Layout 1. The scenery behind the home is similar to the home in Dogwood Forest. Also Falafel & Presto which were in the May family are now in the Townsends. Presto has a brown fur colour rather than the black one in the other console versions and Linda wears a different outfit.
Lives In: Pupville
The lot is surrounded by neighbourhood homes with white walls and black or red tiled roofs and is fenced.
Family bin/real estate office familiesEdit
Most families which appear in the PS2, GameCube, Xbox & Wii versions are in the family bin. These are:
- May: Mira May, Penelope Arnold, Varian Parker, Marsha Worthington
- Oakley: Buck Oakley, Hammock Oakley, Lucky Oakley, Rufus Oakley
- Simpson: Dottie Simpson, Bella Simpson, Daisy Simpson, Shnookems Simpson
