1.0.1 (09/10/2019): Adjusted German Shepherd to be omnivorous - can now eat kibble. Hunger rate doubled.
1.0.0 (03/08/2019): Release

It always baffled me, and probably most of you, that some domestic animals (dogs, I’m looking at you!) are actually categorised into several breeds, each with somewhat unique attributes, and yet cats are all brought together into a “cat”. I wanted some more diversity with these two types of animals, new breeds, new fluffers, new companions, so I did what I’ve been doing for quite a while now - I made a new mod.

Vanilla Animals Expanded is a modular mod. It means it will come out in several modules allowing people to subscribe to only the animals they want in the game. This part is the Cats and Dogs variant. This mod adds 21 new breeds of dogs and cats to perfectly fit vanilla game, with custom vanilla artwork, sounds and balancing. With this variant you are finally able to send your maine ♥♥♥♥♥ on the enemies, run a farm with an old german shepherd or run a dog show with all your sweet poodles.

Vanilla Animals Expanded: Cats and Dogs adds following animals to the base game:

There shouldn’t be any incompatibilities or issues, but in case anything pops up, report issues in the comments.

Q: Do the animals spawn randomly in biomes?
A: No, your world won’t be populated in cats and dogs in every biome. They are only available like normal pets - from traders.

Q: Can I suggest a feature?
A: Absolutely, leave a comment down below!

Q: Will you keep updating the mod with new animals?
A: The ideal scenario is that I will add the most popular dog and cat breeds as time goes on.

Q: Is this mod compatibile with A Dog Said?
A: Yes. You need A Dog Said and LBE's A Dog Said Easy Patcher loaded before this mod.

Q: Why is your mod special?
A: I am a vanilla player. Anything that doesn't suit vanilla game makes me cringe and I stay away from it. I did however find the game lacking after some time, therefore I've created these animals to be as accurate and as close to vanilla graphics style as possible. What is special? The best part is - nothing in this mod is special at all. Nothing will make you go "Oh that's unusual", because the whole purpose of this mod is to blend into the existing game.

Q: Is this mod save game compatible?
A: Yes, you can add it and remove it whenever you like.

Graphics are created by me, Oskar Potocki.
