A Sim without a pet is a lonely Sim. Hence Sims 3 Pets, the add-on for the highly successful Sims 3 from Electronic Arts.

Sims 3 Pets enables gamers to arm their Sims with a range of cute and not so cute animal friends including as expected dogs and cats but also the likes of horses.

Players can get involved in a variety of activities with their new sidekicks, but possibly more importantly they can create, customize and control more than 100 different breeds of canine and feline friends (and horses!).

Each comes with a variety of traits including: Adventurous, Aggressive, Clueless, Skittish, Lazy, Piggy, Agile, Friendly, Genius, Hyperactive, Hunter, Loud, Nervous, Non-destructive, Neat, Calm, Gentle, Quick, Floats, Shy, Spring Foal, Proud, Stubborn, Brave, Faithful. Three of which can be chosen to create a perfect blend of animal for the player’s purposes (an evil villain cat, for example).

The Sims 3 Pets also brings new traits to the human Sims: Animal lover, Loves Cats, Dog Lover and Equestrian for a like-owner, like-pet set of interactions.

Of course, as with any Sims creation Sims Pets can learn skills. These include hunting (not for the horses though, they can learn racing and jumping). For example, a dog can learn how to fetch your loved one!

The player doesn’t simply have to enable petting in their Sim though, they can actually take control of the German Shepherd or Chihuahua (or cat or horse) to wreak havoc or cause cuteness all over the place.
