i guess if you choose to have any animal, they will eventually die of old age. however it's only of old age and all that happens is the grim reaper comes.

You can’t actually physically harm your cats or dogs. You can scold them for bad behaviour and you can neglect them by ignoring their needs. But they can be taken away from you for doing that.

Pets can only die from old age and this can be disabled by turning aging off

If a dog has the ''agressive'' trait it will fight with every sim who is not in their household. Dogs with the ''hunter" trait will enter bushes and fight squirrels, but I played it for years and no, none of my dogs, even with the "agressive" trait fighted each other. It is a game where you choose what happens with some little bit of backstory envolving the townies but no,no dog fights.

With the Outdoor Retreat expansion pack, you can look for and collect insects.

Corpses are not graphic in the sims, though. When a dog or cat (or a sim for that matter) dies, they simply lie down and the grim reaper appears to magically turn them into an urn/gravestone.

While technically still cats/dogs, your sim can have a pet fox or raccoon, which can die

No snakes in the base game BUT there are snakes if you get the following packs. Packs with living snakes in world: - Jungle Adventure (there are snakes in Selvadora) - Strangerville (Strangerville is in a desert and snakes and lizards can be spotted in the landscape) -Realm of Magic: I remember seeing a big snake in one of the lots in the Magic Realm (where the gardens are if I remember correctly). Glimmerbrook has snakes too. - Star Wars, Journey to Batuu (based on the gameplay trailer) Depictions of snakes: - City Living: It adds the "world culture network" tv channel. The channel shows footage from the sims 3 world adventures that has snakes. There is a close up shot of the snake charmer and the snake (cobra). It is quite huge if your sim is watching it on a big screen. Of course this is some easily skippable gameplay. I rarely had sims watch this channel autonomously. - Vampires: In the vampire menu you get if your sim is a vampire, there is snake drawing for one of the perks (the 'hissing' weakness). Things that look like snakes: - Snowy Escape: When your sim goes hiking big in Mt Komorebi they can be attacked by gigantic caterpillars that move in a snake like way and of course can be mistaken for snakes if you're not familiar with gameplay. They're red and fall off trees and will wrap around your sim's arm before disappearing (a 10sec animation basically). -(Spoiler?) Get together: It can be considered as an easter egg, but from the bluffs you can see on rare occasions the 'Sea Monster'. The monster is dragon-like and could be said to resemble a snake. Other: There's a creepy crawlies lot trait. I don't know what it does as I've never used it. If you download builds from the gallery and creepy crawlies are a concern, you might want to check if the lot doesn't come with the trait. (I have all packs so this list should be more or less exhaustive. I also try to update it when I notice new snakes in game.)

Same story as with the dog; They can only die of old age and even then only when auto-aging is on, but yeah, they do die.

Definitely no explicit gaslighting or manipulation, but some of the social interactions in the "Mischief" category involve lying: "Lie about career", "claim to be criminal mastermind", etc. Sometimes Sims will become tense for a few hours after being lied to.

Possibly, but it mostly has to be instigated by the player themselves.

No. There are items that resemble alcoholic drinks but they are never referred as such. Drinking these 'drinks' or 'juices' can influence your sims mood and emotions. But I don't think these would fall under the 'abuse of alcohol' description.

Geeky sims are low-key addicted to video games as they become tense if they have gone too long without playing. Likewise, Active sims are addicted to sports and exercise in the same manner.

Sims with a low cooking skill might accidentally cut themselves while chopping ingredients. Nothing graphic is shown, the Sim only yells and holds their hand for a second before going back to what they were doing.

Sims can die in manners that ostensibly involve asphyxiation: drowning, pufferfish poisoning in City Living, and being crushed under the murphy bed in Tiny Living, just to name a few. It's all very cartoonish and not gruesome, though.

There's a very small chance your sim will get abducted by aliens if you have the Get To Work expansion installed. Nothing is shown beyond your sim getting into a UFO. Mods exist that can turn off this event.

A child sim's doll house can be destroyed, causing the child sim to become sad. But it's possible to have an adult sim rebuild it for them.

Ghosts of deceased sims may appear, but only if their grave or urn is present on the lot or if the lot has the ''haunted'' trait.

Technically, no, but the death notification sound is loud and may spook you if you're not expecting it.

Yes, a way to avoid the clown is to never hang up the sad clown painting. He will appear and never leave.

High School Years expansion pack adds a shaving interaction. Sims shave their facial hair in the mirror with a safety razor. The razor might also be visible when sims shave their body hair in the bathtub/shower (I will update this info when I play again). Bathroom clutter kit: comes with a decorative electric shaver

Not in the game explicitly, although some mods add it. The actions of some Sims can imply that they have an ED/s.

Technically pregnancy can be terminated, but only by console commands. Though by doing this, the pregnant sim goes on as if they've never been pregnant in the first place, and the word "Abortion" is never used nor performed.

Once your sim learns they are pregnant (with a test or by waiting a few days after Trying for Baby), the pregnancy will always be brought to term. There will never be miscarriages or complications.

You can dress your Sims however you want, and the game will not comment on it in any way (unless a Sim is wearing an outfit for cold weather when it is hot outside or vice versa).

There is the erratic trait, which was renamed from Insane due to its ableist implications. It still may be offensive to those who are neurodivergent and talk to themselves, you may look at the wiki page to decide for yourself, or there might be a mod to turn off or remove the trait from your game.

No, and in fact, in this installation, a Sim's gender is highly customizable. There was an update in June 2022 where you can even customize a Sim's pronouns.

Only among adult Sims. A young adult Sim and an elderly Sim can be romantically involved, but a teen Sim can only have romantic interactions with other teen Sims. Anyone younger than that cannot have any romantic interactions with anyone.

It's called Woohoo. But no sexual activity is shown what so ever. When done in bed, they just hop under the covers and start to giggle, and fireworks sparks in the air. It's pretty much what a kid thinks adults do at night during bedtime and the parents are smart enough to lock the doors just in case.

While registered familial bonds prevent incestuous relationships from happening, anything beyond first cousins will not be registered and can thus form a relationship. Ergo, your sim's first cousin once removed is free game.

Every sim requires to own a terrain to be able to play. You can decide to treat your sims as homeless by not building a house. There are also NPCs that don't have an actual home in the game world, but the game doesn't depict them as homeless.
