The Sims 4 Cottage Living Cheats

The Sims 4 Cottage Living Expansion Pack comes with plenty of new animals and features that come pre-packed with new cheats and abilities for you to create and spawn animals, collectibles and so much more.

The following cheats listed down below only work if you use the testingcheats true cheat first. You can open the cheat console by pressing CTRL + Shift + C, or by pressing L1+R1+L2+R2 on your console controller. Feel free to also check out The Sims 4 Base Game Cheats and Cheats from some of the previous Packs!

Create & Spawn Certain Animals

You can spawn Chickens and Rabbits anywhere in the world with this cheat. Simply Shift + Click anywhere on the ground and you’ll get the following options:

  • Create Animal
    • Create Chicken (Chick)
    • Create Chicken (Hen)
    • Create Chicken (Rooster)
    • Create Rabbit

If you spawn chickens and rabbits on a lot that has a chicken coop and a wild rabbits home they’ll immediately run to it and take their slot space – assuming you have space.

Unlock All Animal Clothing

You can immediately unlock and obtain all Animal Clothes! Shift + Click on any new animal that comes with Cottage Living and select “Get all Animal Clothes”. This interaction will add all Animal Clothes for every type of animal to your Sim’s inventory.

Unlock All Animal Homes

Want to skip the process of having to befriend a Wild Rabbit or a Wild Bird in order to unlock their sanctuary? You can skip the process by Shift + clicking on any animal and selecting “Unlock All Animal Homes”. Both types of homes will be then unlocked in Build Mode.

Animal Relationship & Outcome Cheats

You can immediately form friendships (or immediately destroy them) with your Animals! Shift + Click on an animal of your choice and select:

  •  Cheat Relationship
    • Make Friend
    • Set Relationship to Almost Friend
    • Set Max Friendship
    • Set Min Friendship

Animals won’t always react the way you want them to. You can ensure that your interactions with animals always succeed (or always fail) by selecting one of the following options:

  • Cheat Outcomes
    • Always Fail at EP11 Animal Socials (will always fail at interacting with selected animal)
    • Always Succeed at EP11 Animal Socials (will always succeed at interacting with selected animal)

There are also Chicken Coop Cheats that lets you make the coop either dirty or clean, as well as the “Get Special Upgrade Part” interaction which will immediately give you 1 Livestock Upgrade Part which you can use for Animal Shed and Chicken Coop Upgrades!

Cow & Llama Cheats

Shift + Clicking on the Animal Shed will give you options to immediately create a Cow or a Llama in the shed you’ve selected.

While Shift + Clicking on any Animal, including Llamas, you’ll be able to “Create Wool in Inventory” which will immediately spawn every type of Wool there is in your Sim’s inventory.

There’s also a special category called “Controller State” which allows you to control your flock of Wild Birds and what they’re doing! Just like with other Animals you also have options to Cheat Relationships and Outcomes.

Rabbit Cheats

You can spawn a Rabbit inside of a Wild Rabbit Home by Shift + Clicking on the home and selecting “Create Rabbit in Home”. If there are multiple Rabbits on your lot you also have an option to “Call Out Particular Rabbit”.

  • stats.set_skill_level Skill_CrossStitch [1-5 Number]

Ghost Cheats

Do you want to turn your Sim into a Ghost of someone who got killed by a Chicken or a Rabbit? You can enter the following appropriate cheats – both which will immediately turn your Sim into a ghost:

  • traits.equip_trait trait_Ghost_AnimalObjects_KillerRabbit – Death by a Rabbit
  • traits.equip_trait trait_Ghost_AnimalObjects_KillerChicken – Death by a Chicken

Is a Wild Fox bothering you and your Animals?

You can immediately get rid of it in a more…natural way. Shift + Click on a Wild Fox of your choice and select “Old Age”. This will make the Fox immediately start dying of old age.


This one is pretty self-explanatory. You can unlock this interaction by Shift + Clicking on a Sim of your choice.
