What's New For Sims

Although this expansion pack is mainly focussed on pets, there's something new for Sims too. First off, new clothing and hairstyles! You can have an overview of the new CAS contentbelow:

And if you're not satisfied with your Sim's appearance, you can now go to the hospital and get a plastic surgery!

Spicy news: Sims can now woohoo in the hay sheaf! Watch our video below to get an idea of what it looks like (there is also a country woohoo music that we haven't been able to record).

Traits

Also, 4 new traits were introduced to affect the relationship between Sims and animals:
amanteanimaliAnimal lover (incompatible with Cat Person, Dog Person, Equestrian): Sims with the Animal Lover trait love all members of the animal kingdom and have special benefits when interacting with Pets.
gattofiloCat Person (incompatible with Animal Lover): Sims with the Cat Person trait are happiest when they are surrounded by multitudes of felines.
cinofiloDog Person (incompatible with Animal Lover): Sims with the Dog Person trait have a an extra special relationship with their dogs.
equestreEquestrian (incompatible with Animal Lover): Equestrian Sims love horses, and horses love them back! The mutual equine affection makes these Sims naturals at handling and training horses.

There is no "Hates animals" trait, as people at EA didn't want something bad to happen to pets.

Lifetime Aspirations

There are also new aspirations, obviously animal-related:
  • 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 Simlishly possible! In a past life, you may have possibly been a cat, which would explain why you have this undying love for them! -> Become friends with 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 an aura of tranquility and mysticism. Not many Sims can say they've seen one, let alone have one be part of their family. So if you ever come across one - it'll be worth your while to make that unicorn a member of your family. -> Adopt a Unicorn
  • The Canine Companion: You know that saying, dogs are a Sim's best friend? Not only do you believe it - that is the motto you 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! -> Become friends with 15 number of dogs
  • The Ark Builder: There is no such thing as having too many pets. 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're all part of your growing family. -> Have 2 cats, dogs, horses, birds, lizards, turtles, rodents, snakes, butterflies, and beetles
  • 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 oneís life to serving and being one with their horse and their various trainers. The path to becoming 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
  • The Animal Rescuer: You have a soft spot for animals of all shapes and sizes. To see one being mistreated, abandoned, or neglected breaks your heart. That is why you've 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 Zoologist: While being able to obtain pets through various ways, there is no greater self-satisfaction for an avid animal lover than to go out 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)

Lifetime Rewards

Then the lifetime rewards (too bad we forgot to check their prices):
  • Raised by wolves: Gain more social fulfillment from interacting with pets.
  • Animal expert: Can't seem to ever get tired of your pets? This reward makes it so dogs, cats, and horses live much longer lives. Pets kept in a terrarium and birds are also less likely to die. Dogs, cats, and horses live much longer lives. Pets kept in a terrarium and birds are also less likely to die.

Misc.

Sims have the new Riding ability, which helps them with equestrian competition, and there are no new careers for them. Also, only teenage or older Sims can ride a horse.
Last but not least, there are new kinds of music: country, r&b, songwriters.
