Lazy pets just love to lie down or stay in one place as they get tired easily.


  • Pet will likely want to stay in one place.
  • Pet will get Fatigued more quickly.
  • Energy motive drops at a slightly increased rate.
  • Horse will get a penalty on Racing and Cross Country Competitions.
  • Horse will learn the Racing skill considerably slower.


  • This trait is featured in The Sims 3: Generations as a hidden trait with no effect on Sims, and cannot be obtained without using mods or hacks.

The Sims 4: Cats & Dogs[]

Lazy can only be given to cats, and it conflicts with the Frisky trait. There is a similar dog trait called Couch Potato.

These cats really enjoy their catnaps. They are less likely to jump from place to place since it takes too much effort.
