Minor pet

Not to be confused with small pet.

Minor pets are small collectible animals, which include lizards, snakes, rodents, turtles, small birds, and large birds. Minor pets are featured in The Sims 3: Pets and The Sims 4: My First Pet Stuff. Minor pets can be set free if a Sim cannot properly care for them. If kept in a Sim's inventory for too long, minor pets can escape. Birds can be killed by cats when they're placed on bird cage or bird tree.[TS3:P]

Minor pets should be kept in their respective terrariums/habitats/cages. Their values increase over time. While being kept in the terrarium, they need to be fed regularly and played with in order to keep their longevity. Otherwise, they will eventually die.

In The Sims 4: My First Pet, minor pets are reintroduced but only featuring rodents such as, hamsters, rats, hedgehogs, and a new rodent, miniature bubalus voidcritter.

The Sims 3: Pets[edit | edit source]

In The Sims 3: Pets, common minor pets can be purchased, while rarer pets must be caught in the wild. Unlike the main pets, these pets can be spotted by the Collection Helper lifetime reward.

Large wild birds can only be acquired by befriending them. Sims have a hidden wildlife Skill, which determines whether befriending interactions are successful. All birds can be taught to talk and sing by Sims. Cats can be trained to hunt minor pets, excluding large birds. Some minor pets require minimum pet hunting skill before they can be caught.

The Sims 4: My First Pet Stuff[edit | edit source]

Main article: Rodent

In The Sims 4: My First Pet Stuff, Sims can own rodents as pets. Then can be bought from the rodent cage. Sims and other pets can interact with the rodents in various form.

Unlike cats and dogs, rodents does not have traits, life stages, or the ability to breed. They, however, can die of old age (unless given the Anti-Aging Treat) and starvation.

Rodents can have the Rabid Rodent Disease that can spread to Sims. Sims that do not cure themselves on time can spread the disease to other Sims and eventually die if left untreated.
