Another chapter of the Woods family's life was about to be put behind them as well. Their aging cat, Pudding, had been in poor health for some time. But one morning, the cat was too weak even to eat, and everybody knew that the time was near. By the time Greg got home from work, the Grim Reaper was there.
Grim Reaper: YOUR TIME HAS COME.
Grim Reaper: A LIFE WELL LIVED.
James wasn't at home when the Grim Reaper came, but he didn't mind much. He had never been too close to the cat, and he knew that Faye could handle Eliza's grief. Instead, he was at the gym, where he spent much of his time lately. While he doubted he'd ever manage to be a track star, he'd earned himself a solid place on the team. Integrating himself into the high school jock culture had been difficult, but rewarding, as he now found himself with a large casual social circle. Girls actually wanted to date him now, believe it or not. Despite his frequent wins in Debate Club, nobody would want to be his girlfriend because of that - it was nerdy!
Faye soon graduated, taking a job at the Little Corsican Bistro as a kitchen skullion. She was excited for her new job, even though it would amount mostly to scrubbing dishes, but with her cooking skills she was confident that she would be able to advance quickly.

Spot the Discworld reference!
So I can't believe that cat lasted as long as it did. I swear it was like two weeks past its expiration date. Reminds me why I don't get pets in the sims too often, though. It's almost more sad when they die than when sims die.
Forgot to take a picture of Melissa. Boo. She looks pretty much the same as she did as a teen, though.
