It really depends on how you've treated you're cat and dog, the dog is sure to come back if he's got the loyal trait or if he's you're friend/good friend/best friend forever. The cat is sure to come back if he is you're friend/good friend etc.

Press LT on your Xbox controller and hold it hover over your letterbox and press it will say reset sim click on it go to the pet you lost click on the name and your pet is back you can also use this cheat to get a sim out of a place where it is stuck e.g stuck in a bush

You actually can. Just press X and go to the moodlets section. You can still access the pet's moodlets from there.

Well, I had two dogs and they were a boy and a girl. Since we lived in a mansion and my dad is a very inexperienced cooker he set the house on fire. The dogs ended up running away and I couldn't find them they even had a baby!But, it turns out they were at the dog park.

Rigjt now as I'm typing this my two cats, Cade and Numa, had ran off cause of an fire. I'd looked everywhere and it's been about the fifth day. I looked at their moodlets as some of you suggested and it said dirty surroundings and nothing very helpful. Their hungry and sleepy so I guess thats bad. I reported then as well. And nothing.

What I did was that I traveled to each neighborhood and clicked on my sim. If it has the option to call your pet then it's somewhere in the neighborhood. Just pause the game and look for him or her. Mind you this is only in the PS3 game, I've never had a problem on the PC version.

Go to Kitty Korner and look for your cat that's where I found my cat when she ran away.

If you want to find your cat and/or cat when they run away, quickly go to the town map and look for the green icon with the pets picture on it. Thats how I found my cat.

I left my sims (on the ps3) running for about 5 mins and I come back to my house on fire and my cat missing. I've looked everywhere but I can't find him. Then it reminded me that he was missing and it said lets hope nothing bad happened. I really want to find him because his mate is about to have kittens.

My sim accedently started a fire. My cat ran away and I tried to look at her moodlets but all it says are dirty, hairball and filthy surroundings (and of course stressed out). I looked in both the cave and the mine with the lucky find karma thing and I still can't find her...

There are a few things you can do to get your pet/pets back, but the first is to report it lost. Another thing is you can look at their moodlets, (by pressing x and going to the lost pet) for example; My cat ran away after a fire. Her moodlets where stressed out, dirty, filthy surrounding and new friend. I found her at the park, (which explained the 'new friend' moodlet) but before I could do anything she ran off. Then I found her near a dumpster (Explaining the dirty, filthy surroundings moodlets) I hope this helped!

Once my house started on fire but my dog just ran and hid under the bed while my sims were running around with their hands in the air. It was hilarious, but my cat ran away. :( I looked everywhere but never found her until one day she just came into my yard, so she might just come back on her own.

The best way to get your furry friend home is to get it a spa package and waiting outside the building for it to get out and click on it as it comes out worked perfect for me😊

You can try "Reset Sim.". I lost my two dogs, and I tried looking around town and reporting them missing, but I got tired of looking so I held down the Left trigger button (Xbox360) and clicked on the mailbox, clicked "Reset Sim," then clicked on their names. And they appeared in the living room perfectly fine. The missing notification went away and their moodlets were good and everything was back to normal again. Hope this helps anybody in the future.
