However, I did promise some people that I would make it so that they could play with Oddballz-petz in their dogz games. So here is a compromise that I hope Dogz-games players will accept. Please read the readme texts included in the zipfiles carefully; they tell you how to install the files.
These files are only for Petz II upwards; the original Dogz game was never part of a full "petz" game, and nor was the original Catz game, so there is no way to make the one work with the other's game engine.
NOTE to anyone who thinks that they would be getting the full catz games with this kit; this is not the case, even though the game is fooled into thinking that the Catz part of Petz is present. There are several important items still missing, such as the sounds resources, but you don't need those items in order to play with my custom-crafted Oddballz-petz :-)
For Petz 3, 4 or 5 you need to download the relevant Basic Cat Behaviours file for that game (sorry it's a large file) and then you need to download whichever of the small cut-down cat rez files goes with your version of the game.
For Petz 4 and 5, download the bunny for your game version also -- you'll need it.
Bunny file for Petz 4
Bunny file for Petz 5
For Petz II, there is just the single large download.
NOTE: These zips contain .DLL files. .DLL files need to be "un-hidden".
IMPORTANT -- Please Click here if, after installation, your CAT files seem to become "some kind of catalog".

For people who have trouble understanding my instructions, here's an example of how it works:
Unzip the Catbehaviours_c4c5.zip file into the root directory of your game -- where the Petz 5.exe is. This is wherever you installed the game. If you didn't choose your own place for installing the game, that would probably be
C:\Program Files\UBI Soft\Studio Mythos\Petz 5
Everything should then go into the right places. You only have to worry about shuffling stuff around if it doesn't. Then unzip the Rez_c5.zip into your game's Resource directory. If you didn't choose your own place for installing the game, that would probably be
C:\Program Files\UBI Soft\Studio Mythos\Petz 5\Resource
Then make a directory off the Resource one and rename it Catz. So you would now have this:
C:\Program Files\UBI Soft\Studio Mythos\Petz 5\Resource\Catz
Unzip the bunny into that directory and of course all your catz breedz -- any breedfiles which you download that are .cat files -- need to go in there.
