Rabbits or bunnies are a type of NPC animal introduced in The Sims: Unleashed and later returned in The Sims 4: Cottage Living.

The Sims: Unleashed[]

In The Sims: Unleashed, rabbits are NPC pests that will eat Sims' carrot plants. Buying windmills and scarecrows can reduce the chances of them appearing however. Sims can also have a cat which will hunt rabbits.

The Sims 4: Cottage Living[]

In The Sims 4: Cottage Living, bunnies live in the wild and act as NPCs. However, when befriended by Sims, they can form relationships, help in the garden, and give gifts. If Sims wish to befriend more bunnies or have them close by, rabbit holes can be placed on the lot to attract more of them. Sims can also name their bunnies and make clothes for them. Lots with the Wild Foxes challenge will spawn foxes that can be a danger to bunnies if left unprotected by a llama or a Sim.

There are several locations where you can find Wild Rabbits in the new world of Henford-on-Bagley. They can be found hanging around the Tree Stumps placed in the Old New Henford and The Bramblewood Neighborhoods. In Old New Henford there is a Tree Stump near a walking path, while in The Bramblewoods there is one near The Creature Keeper and one near the waterfall.

If you can’t find a Rabbit to interact with roaming around Henford on Bagley then you can try to “Lure Out Rabbits” out of the tree stumps – that is if Rabbits are hiding in them. It’s recommended that you try this interaction only during daytime because they don’t like to be bothered when sleeping during the night. Once you manage to lure out the rabbit you’ll have plenty of interactions to choose from. It’s recommended that, if you want to befriend a rabbit, to approach rabbits carefully by observing them from the distance. You can also always choose a more direct approach and interact with them immediately.

In the Actions menu you’ll have interactions to Admire the Rabbit (if your Sim has the Animal Enthusiast Trait) and to make the camera lock on them. In the Socialize section there are funny, friendly, mean and mischevious social interactions that you can choose to perform with the Rabbit. There’s also an option to Give Gift to the Rabbit (or take a Gift offered by a Rabbit if they’re friendly enough) and an option to Discover Gift Preferences.

There are numerous collectibles that you can gift to (and receive from) Rabbits, including: Books, Canned Goods, Cross-stitch, Drinks, Eggs, Fish, Flowers, Meat Meals, Wool, Milk, Paintings, Produce, Veggie Meals and Wooden Sculptures.

After choosing the Discover Gift Preferences interaction you’ll get information about what they like / dislike. In this case after I used the interaction I only discovered that the Wild Rabbit I stumbled across doesn’t like Veggie Meals, while everything else was still under a question mark whether they’ll like the gift or not. It’s often fun to experiment and give Animals gifts whether or not you know their preferences.

There are many social interactions that will help you befriend a Rabbit. If your Sim is an Animal Enthusiast they’ll also be able to form a friendship with a Wild Rabbit faster! My Sim who’s an Animal Enthusiast had more luck befriending a Rabbit, however other Sims might have to be a bit more persistent. If it’s your first time befriending a Rabbit you’ll unlock a Wild Rabbit Home that you can place down on your Residential Lot. Also, every time that you befriend a Rabbit you’ll get a powerful moodlet.

One of the benefits of befriending a Rabbit is that you’re able to Ask for Gardening Help. The Rabbit you’ve asked for help will then occasionally visit your Lot and help with the garden. You can check out the status if they’re set to help or not by hovering over them. Rabbits help out in two ways with your Garden – by eating the weeds and by…well…pooping on the plants in your garden. Don’t worry – their poop acts as a fertilizer!

You’ll be able to purchase a Wild Rabbit Home from Build Mode for 400 Simoleons. It can be found in the Outdoor Activities section – or simply just use the Search Bar and type in Wild Rabbit Home! A thing I’ve noticed is that I wasn’t able to house the Rabbit I befriended first in The Bramblewood, so I had to lure out a new rabbit out of the tree stump and make a connection with them.

Choosing to pick fights with a Wild Rabbit can end fatally. If you provoke a Rabbit way too many times they’ll attack your Sim. Sometimes your Sim will leave the fight with nothing but a fair warning from the Rabbit, but on rare occasions they can get killed by the Rabbit.

Rabbits have their own set of clothing that you can dress them up in! To obtain clothing for Rabbits you can check the Creature Keeper in The Bramblewood to purchase outfits. There’s a limited stock of items and clothing for different animals rotating every day so make sure you check up often![1]
