How to Get Animals in the DLC


As described by EA themselves: "Before you begin raising animals, you will first need an animal shed or chicken coop, which you can find in a variety of colors in Build Mode. Once you’ve placed your animal shed or chicken coop, you can purchase a variety of chickens, cows, and llamas."

If you start at Cordelia’s Secret Cottage in the town, you should have a coop or shed to house any animal you want, which is quicker than building your own.

Once you've found it, click on it and select Purchase Animals, at which point you can choose who you want, click the tick in the bottom right, and then begin bonding with it

How to Dress Animals in Sims 4 Cottage Living

Now onto the main topic, you can change the colour of cows, llama and more, and dress them in outfits of your choosing by selecting the animal, selecting the option to dress them, and then choosing the colour or piece of clothing you want to add to them.

However, you'll first need to get the clothes, as they can't simply be bought from that menu.

To get animal clothes, you'll need to talk to the Creature Keeper in Henford-on-Bagley’s Bramblewood Neighbourhood. However, finding him isn't very easy.

Travel to the woodland area of the Bramblewood Neighbourhood on the Cottage Living map and look around the outside of the area.

You're looking for a small area over a brick bridge with a duck pond over it. You'll see old wooden farm machinery and some workbenches, with the Creature Keeper wandering around nearby.

Select him and then select the option to buy clothes for animals. You'll then have free choice to buy whatever you want for whatever animal and then head back to your house.

The finally step it to equip whatever you just bought by selecting the animal you want to dress and then selecting the item you just bought. You'll then see them wandering around wearing what you just equipped.
