What is in the Playable Pets mod for Sims 4?

Playable Pets is a mod for The Sims 4 that works as long as the player has the base game and Cats & Dogs installed. Currently, without modifications, players cannot actually control pets in their households. This mod gives players the ability to click on, control, and basically be their pets. This makes training, hygiene, happiness, and easier to gauge for your furry friends.
