The Sims 3: Pets is the 5th expansion pack for The Sims 3. This is Like The Sims 2: Pets and The Sims: Unleashed. Dogs and cats are back. There are also snakes, turtles, birds, rodents, lizards, deer, raccoons and even unicorns in the PC/MAC version.

c. Traits


This expansion has brand new Pet related traits for Sims.
Note: You may only select one of these traits to add to your Sims.

Animal Lover – Sims with the Animal Lover trait love all member of the animal Kingdom and have special benefits when interacting with Pets
Cat Person – Sims with the Cat Person trait are happiest when they are surrounded by multitudes of felines.
Dog Person – Sims with the Dog Person trait have an extra special relationship with their Dogs.
Equestrian – Equestrian Sims love Horses and Horses love them back! The mutual equine affection, makes these Sims naturals at Handling and Training Horses.

Each Pet is allowed up to 3 Traits when creating them in CAP.  Animals can also gain and lose other (hidden) traits as they progress in specific skills.  Hidden traits will be listed below in a separate section related to skill gaining.
Adventurous (Cats,Dogs) – Adventurous Pets are very curious and love to explore.
Aggressive (All) - Aggressive Pets aren’t inherently mean, they usually just have a bad attitude when interacting with other Pets. A bad attitude that usually leads to fights that is.
Agile (Horse) – Agile Horses are nimble, strong and love to jump. They make awesome show jumping competitors, but get bored if the don’t stay active.
Brave (Horse) – Brave Horses have an extra helping of courage to help them deal with the chaos of sprinklers, fireworks, burglar alarms and other terror-inducing everyday objects.
Clueless (All) – Clueless Pets tend to forget what they’re doing and are easily distracted.  They don’t learn skills and traits too quickly, but they do get along well with absent minded Sims.
Destructive (Cat,Dogs) – Whether destroying furniture or digging holes in the yard, Destructive Pets are sure to cause chaos wherever they are!
Fast (Horse) – Fast Horses are the speed demons of the animals kingdom. They love to gallop  and have a natural talent for racing, but they need plenty of exercise to stay satisfied.
Friendly (All) – Pets with the friendly trait not only get along better with other pets, but they’ll usually have better relationships with Sims as well.
Genius (All) – Genius pets are always thinking on their paws (or hooves). They learn new skills & traits quickly and get along well with other Genius pets & Sims.
Hates Jumping (Horse) – Some Horses prefer to have their hooves on the ground. When a Horse hates jumping, it will refuse to jump more often and do worse at Show Jumping and Cross-Country competitions. It may even take anger out on your new shiny training obstacles!
Hunter (Cats,Dog) – Pets with the Hunter trait are excellent at stalking and catching prey.
Hydrophobic (Dog) – Hydrophobic Dogs have a natural aversion for anything that relates to water. When in the water, they are definitely not happy.
Hyper (Cats,Dog) – Hyper Pets are super active and never like staying in one place. They are able to build energy much more quickly and have a slower energy decay.
Independent (Cats,Dog) – Independent pets not only prefer to be on their own, but have more fun when playing on their own than in big groups or other social situations.
Lazy (All) – Lazy pets just love to lie down or stay in one place as they get tired easily.
Likes Swimming (Dog) – Contrary to popular belief, not all breeds of dogs like to swim. However, when given this trait, Dogs just can’t enough satisfaction from taking a dip!
Loyal (Dog)“A Dog is a Sim’s best friend” is a saying that certainly holds true! Loyal Dogs love spending time and interacting with their Sims, and even seem to learn skills faster than other Dogs.

Neat (All) – Neat pets are naturally clean and love to be bathed.
Nervous (Horse) – Nervous Horses see danger everywhere and can be startled by the most insignificant things. They tend to get along well with neurotic Sims who have the same problem.

Non Destructive (Cats,Dog) – Non Destructive Pets are very gentle, and never destroy furniture or dig holes in the yard.
Obedient (Horse) – Obedient Horses are more willing to do what a Sim wants than other Horses. They’ll usually go along with a Sim’s wishes, even if they don’t know that Sim very well.
Ornery (Horse) – Ornery Horses are stubborn and don’t deal well with other Sims. They don’t like to be approached by Sims they don’t know – or even Sims they do know, for that matter.
Piggy (All) – Piggy Pets are voracious eaters who don’t mind munching garbage or drinking from the toilet.
Playful (All) – Playful Pets always want to have fun and have a happy-go-lucky attitude.
Proud (Cats,Dog) – Proud Pets think they’re better than others and make their own image a top priority; they can’t stand having low hygiene.

d. Lifetime Wishes
The Animal Rescuer – You have a soft spot for animals To see one being mistreated, abandoned or neglected breaks your heart. That is why you have made it a personal mission to adopt as many Pets as you can, to help make their world a little brighter.  (Adopt 6 Strays)
The Ark Builder – The more Pets you have, the happier you are. The same can be said for your Pets as well. It brings you and your Pets joy when another animal joins your growing herd. Some Sims may think this is an unhealthy obsession, but to you, Sim or animal, they are all part of your growing family.  (Have 2 of each – Cats, Dogs, Horses, Birds, Lizards, Turtles, Rodents, Snakes, Butterflies and Beetles)
The Canine Companion – You know that saying, dogs are a Sims best friend? Not only do you believe it – that is a motto to live by. But why limit yourself to just one best friend? You want to befriend as many Dogs as you can to not only show the world that dogs are a Sim’s best friend, but how they are the most amazing animals in the entire world!(Befriend 15 Dogs)
The Cat Herder – You love all things Feline related.  So it’s no surprise that your only goal in life is to befriend as many Cats as Simlishy possible! In a past life, you may have possibly been a Cat, which would explain why you have this undying love for them!(Befriend 15 Cats)
The Fairy Tale Finder – Why settle for a regular Pet when you can have one of the most enigmatic, charismatic and mythical animals to ever exist? The sheer presence of a Unicorn inspires and aura of tranquility and mysticism.  Not many Sims can say they’ve seen one be part of their family., so if you come across one, it’ll be worth your while to make that Unicorn a member of your family. (Adopt a Unicorn) 
The Jockey – Lightweight and Agile. The Jockey is the driving force when it comes to Horseback Riding. To reach actual Jockey status, one must dedicate one’s life to serving and being one with their Horse and their various trainers. The path to become a full fledged Jockey is not an easy task and requires intense training, competing in rigorous competitions and the will to win.  (Reach Level 10 of Riding Skill & Win/Earn 40,000 Simoleons using your Horses)
The Zoologist – While being able to obtain pets through various ways, there is no greater self-satisfaction for an avid animal lover than to go into the wild, and bring home a native of the animal kingdom. Animals born and bred in the wild have different challenges and responsibilities, as opposed to regular house pets, but that won’t discourage you one bit! (Collect 20 Pets in the wild – Minor Pets only)
