From the cute and cuddly Hamster to the popular Cats and Dogs, here is a fun list of every pet in The Sims 4.
The Sims 4 has no doubt given pet fans what they wanted. With all of its expansion packs, the game lets players choose from a huge number of pets, each of which has its own unique traits, behaviors, and obstacles. Pets are an important part of Sim family life because they bring joy, company, and an element of surprise.
But some pets are more important to the game than others. This could be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on how the players want to play. Even so, The Sims 4 has something for everyone, whether they want a loyal friend, a mischievous sidekick, or a strange and wonderful creature to care for.
Hamster – My First Pet Stuff
The Sims 4: My First Pet Stuff adds hamsters as one of four new mice. Unlike pets that can take care of themselves, hamsters need their owners to feed them, keep their box clean, and play with them a lot so they don’t feel lonely. Sims can play with their hamsters, have talks with them, or just watch them go about their daily lives.
Even though hamsters don’t have as much personality as some other pets, they are still great additions to The Sims 4. They can provide players with a lot of fun and company if they like their unique traits and cuteness.
Rat – My First Pet Stuff
Rats and other rodents in the game have a special ability that sets them apart from other pets: they can go on exciting adventures to faraway places. Every once in a while, they will leave their cages and go on a trip. When they return home, they will have a cute picture from where they went.
This odd trait gives these pets a bit of personality and makes them more fun and unpredictable to play with. They are one of the less interesting pets on this list because they don’t associate with people as much as other pets do with coworkers.
Pygmy Hedgehog – My First Pet Stuff
Pygmy hedgehogs are definitely some of the cutest pets in the game. They win players’ hearts with their cute looks and funny behavior. These cute animals have their own cozy little home that is made just for them. It has a variety of items and things to do to keep them happy and busy.
Their small size, sharp quills, and cute faces make them hard to ignore. Their simple presence in the game adds a touch of warmth and charm to any Sim’s home, giving players countless moments of joy and cuteness to enjoy.
Bubalus – My First Pet Stuff
The Bubalus is by far the most unique pet on the list. Its genes were designed based on a best-selling toy in The Sims’ world. It is a more interesting pet because it has the body of a Hippopotamus, the color and circular shape of a Violet Sea Snail, and the fur, size, and personality of a Hamster.
But Sims can treat it like any other pet rodent, which is pretty disappointing given how unique the animal is.
Birds – Cottage Living
In The Sims 4: Cottage Living, players meet wild birds for the first time. Players can find and meet these winged creatures in special trees around Henford-on-Bagley, or they can attract them by putting up a bird habitat on their Sim’s lot.
When Sims make friends with these birds, they get a lot of benefits, like valuable gifts and help in their yard. The wild birds will help players by eating any bugs that are near their plants. They will also sing to crops that are too big to encourage them to grow bigger. Making friends with birds can be very satisfying, and they are a very welcome addition to the game.
Rabbits – Cottage Living
These little creatures are one of the cutest parts of the game. They are so cute and naughty that any player will fall in love with them. Sims can’t get a rabbit like they can with other pets because rabbits live in the wild and are non-playable characters (NPCs) in the game.
But Sims can make friends with them by giving them gifts. In exchange, they will help in a Sim’s yard! Their gardening skills can help Sims take care of and keep their plants, making them very useful to have around. Players can also dress them up in some pretty cute clothes.
Chicken – Cottage Living
Cottage Living finally added chickens, like chicks, hens, and roosters, to the game. As long as players feed and take care of their chickens, they will lay eggs that can be used in cooking and baking. Sims can also put hens and roosters together to make more chickens for the coop.
Their coop needs to be cleaned often, and if the Wild Foxes lot challenge is on, wild foxes will come and try to steal their eggs if the Wild Foxes lot challenge is on. Chickens are very cute and give everyone a fun task.
Cow – Cottage Living
In Cottage Living, cows are back in the Sims series for the first time in a long time. From a livestock stall, players can buy these cute animals, and their Sims can milk them. Players can name them and dress them up in silly clothes, just like they can do with other farm animals.
They can also make milk that tastes different based on what their Sims give them to eat. Sims still have to take care of them, no matter how cute they are. To keep them happy, they will need to clean and brush their barn every day. Cows are a great addition to Flappy Bird game for all the die-hard fans of vintage cows.
Llama – Cottage Living
As the Sims’ mascot, llamas made players happy when they were added to the game by surprise in the Cottage Living pack. Players can now raise their own llamas on their own lots. Llamas are one of the most complicated animals in the game, and players can cut them for wool. This wool can then be used to make cross-stitch patterns or sold for a profit on the co.
Llamas are one of the more interesting animals to take care of because they have a lot of needs. Players will need to brush their llamas to keep them clean, make sure they have enough food, and give them lots of love and attention to keep their llamas happy. The better the wool their llamas make, the happy they are.
Cat – Cats and Dogs
With the Cats and Dogs pack, cats finally made their first appearance in the game. They brought a lot of new ways to play and connect with the game. A lot of the time, players will find that their cats are free spirits who like to roam around the neighborhood. They can hunt birds while they’re out and about, bringing home a lot of feathers that Sims can use to decorate their walls.
But they can also get into trouble while wandering and fight with a wild animal, which could make them sick. Of course, Sims can also do a lot with their cats. They can hug and play with their favorite friends, which makes them a very welcome addition to the family.
Dog – Cats and Dogs
Dogs are the best pets for families, and they have a lot of personality and ways to connect that players can learn about. Sims can do many things with their dogs, like play with them, pet them, or take them for a walk. Dogs come in both small and big sizes.
Sims can also teach their dogs to go out and look around their area. The dogs will then look for mystery boxes that have toys and collectibles for pets. Dogs are also one of the most interesting and interactive pets in the game because Sims can teach them many orders and tricks.
The Sims 4 can be played on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
