Thanks to community modder TwistedMexican, we now have some additional game code referencing The Sims 4 Pets. As he poked through game code, he discovered an animation snippet which indicates Cats and Dogs will be able to walk on certain objects:

Pets will be able to walk on top of the following objects:

  • Counters
  • Bars
  • Fridge
  • Tables
  • Beds

This does not man that pets would be restricted solely to these objects, but this is some new information believed to be added with the last game patch. We’ve yet to hear anything on an official level, but we have plenty of proof Pets are being worked into the game.

As always, without official announcements by The Sims Team regarding this content, consider this to be a rumor until proven otherwise.
