    So, this small guide will allow you to add more cats and dogs to your farm so you could have something like this:
    If you have a cat or dog you need to add this into your save file:
    <NPC xsi:type="Dog"><name>Estos</name><isEmoting>false</isEmoting><isCharging>false</isCharging><willDestroyObjectsUnderfoot>false</willDestroyObjectsUnderfoot><isGlowing>false</isGlowing><coloredBorder>false</coloredBorder><flip>false</flip><drawOnTop>false</drawOnTop><faceTowardFarmer>false</faceTowardFarmer><faceAwayFromFarmer>false</faceAwayFromFarmer><scale>1</scale><timeBeforeAIMovementAgain>0</timeBeforeAIMovementAgain><glowingTransparency>0</glowingTransparency><glowRate>0</glowRate><Position><X>3392</X><Y>512</Y></Position><Speed>2</Speed><IsEmoting>false</IsEmoting><CurrentEmote>24</CurrentEmote><age>0</age><manners>0</manners><socialAnxiety>0</socialAnxiety><optimism>0</optimism><gender>0</gender><id>-1</id><homeRegion>0</homeRegion><daysUntilBirthing>-1</daysUntilBirthing><daysAfterLastBirth>-1</daysAfterLastBirth><birthday_Day>0</birthday_Day><moveTowardPlayerThreshold>0</moveTowardPlayerThreshold><isInvisible>false</isInvisible><followSchedule>true</followSchedule><datable>false</datable><datingFarmer>false</datingFarmer><daysMarried>0</daysMarried><DefaultFacingDirection>0</DefaultFacingDirection><DefaultPosition><X>3456</X><Y>512</Y></DefaultPosition><IsWalkingInSquare>false</IsWalkingInSquare><IsWalkingTowardPlayer>false</IsWalkingTowardPlayer><friendshipTowardFarmer>192</friendshipTowardFarmer><CurrentBehavior>1</CurrentBehavior></NPC>

    After code of your cat/dog which should look exactly the same. Basically you need to find a fragment that starts with <NPC xsi:type="Dog">, ends with </NPC> and double it. And change one dog to cat in one of that fragments.
    That code will give you 1 dog. If you want Cat change <NPC xsi:type="Dog"> to <NPC xsi:type="Cat">
    You can add more that code to have more cats/dogs.
    I currently have 29 cats and 27 dogs.

        I'd love to have both one cat and one dog. Can we get some more elaborate instructions? :)

                  Are those codes supposed to be added in the save file? I need more clarification:pwease:

                    Open your save file (named something like: "Name_Numbers" (not the "SaveGameInfo" file)) in something like Notepad++
                    Search for Dog (or Cat if you currently have a Cat)
                    Scroll a bit further 'til you see "</NPC>" followed by "</characters>"
                    Paste in between those two tags and save.

                        You're welcome.

                        Additionally, to make them a bit more distinguishable from each other you can edit the <scale> values as well.
                        I wouldn't recommend (or do I? :lolwut:) going above 1 because then you'll have a dog as big as your house.

                        For example you can have a momma cat with scale 1 and a couple never-growing-up baby cats with scale ~0.7/0.8

                          This is so great! I love both cats and dogs, and only chose a dog in-game because I currently have a pet dog. After a while I started considering marrying Abigail, but I felt bad because she's always wanted a cat and I didn't have one. Now everyone's happy! I'm definitely going to try this out in my game later <3

                            You're a genius. Thank you so much for this!

                            Does having more than one cause any issues at all? I'm guessing no if you have upwards of 50 lol

                              Didn't encounter any. They even sleep in different places.

                                Worked great, thanks!

                                Oh, are you not bothered by the amount of barking? Or do you know a way of disabling that somehow? (I wouldn't mind not having any dog sounds at all.)

                                  For some reason this isn't working for me. When I paste the code in it just makes 0 pets show up at all (including my original one).

                                  Edit: NVM, got it to work. If anybody else has the same problem as me, it was because I was having a series of rainy days.. instead of showing up inside or outside the animals just weren't there. Once it was a sunny day though they showed up.

                                    Tried it out and edited one cat to my already existing dog. Works great!
                                    Only downside is, when I exit my house in the morning and look at my two pets, they are sleeping in the exact same spot... Do you know any method to mod there standard sleeping place at morning? If not its ok too, cause its only at the morning, but it would be nice, if there is a way for that. ^^
                                    Otherwise nice job figuring that out, always felt a little down, that you can only have pet, especially with all those cute Pet mods for both Cat and Dog.

                                        Yeah I'm curious what 50 Sans/Annoying Dogs look like in the morning all overlapping each other. Even having one dog and two cats causes a lot of sprite flickering until they wake up!

                                          Indeed they are. But at least they sleep in different locations when they are inside the house.
