The Stardew Valley game begins by asking whether you are a cat or a dog person. And based on your answer, a stray pet will suddenly appear from the valley and ready for adoptions. The game got its inspiration from the Harvest Moon series allowing your character to explore the environment and roam around to forage, mine resources, or fish in the river.

The pet character does not seem to have a life other than sleep, stay awake for a second, and then doze off again. You might find this quirky or even cute, but most of the times, your feline or canine friend can only be seen lounging in the sun or occasionally bugging your character for a second, before heading to their little corner.

But thanks to a modder by the name of “Jahangmar,” your pet friends get a better interaction-ability. The new Pet Interaction mod gives your pets the ability to follow you around in almost everywhere and the ability to play fetch with them. So, you can expect your feline or canine friend to go with you around the valley or explore neighboring areas. There is one exception though, your cat or dog will not be able to enter most buildings, so they have to wait outside while you do the exploring.

What makes the new pet interaction mod of Stardew Valley fascinating is it allows your pets to find a different way if they do not fit in gaps. Talking about agility, but this mod is not new to the gaming scene. Way back in 2014, The Sims 4 released the pet feature of the game but lacked the interactivity needed by gamers. Different mods were released by mod fanatics including the real eyes, three-legged pets, and recolors for cats and dogs.

The new mod for Stardew Valley may not be as grandiose as some of the previously released pet mods from other games, but it is enough for the game of its caliber.

Stardew Valley is a pixelized farm simulation RPG game developed by ConcernedApe and published by Chucklefish. The game was first released for PC but eventually ported to the macOS system, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS Vita, iOS, and Android. Apart from its take on the farm simulation genre, which makes this game even more exciting is the addition of the pet interaction mod giving your pets a new life in the game.
