Death by Cowplant
Now let’s get down to the business at hand, which is, of course, the cowplant death type!
Once you have a cowplant that is completely developed, you will need to starve it until it has a piece of cake hanging out of its mouth.
This process typically takes around 12 hours in-game.
Once this has appeared, you will want to have one of your Sims eat it so that it can be consumed by the cowplant; however, it will not be consumed on the very first attempt.
They will be spewed back out, covered in disgusting green slime, and given a moodlet that describes their experience.
If a Sim has this moodlet and is devoured by a cowplant a second time, they will be completely consumed by the cowplant and will not be seen or heard from again.

When a cowplant eats a sim, it gives off a substance called “cowplant essence.”
This is one of the more interesting aspects of cowplants.
Whether or not the Sim passed away determines the type of essence that was collected.
If a Sim is able to survive being devoured by a cowplant, the essence that is extracted from them will reflect whatever mood they were in at the time.
For example, if a Sim was feeling flirtatious, the essence that is extracted from them will have that quality.
After consuming an emotional essence, a sim will receive a moodlet that will cause them to experience the corresponding mood.
If a Sim is successful in dying from the cowplant, then the cowplant will yield an essence of life that can be milked from the Sim.
When a Sim consumes the Essence of Life, their current life stage will be reset to the first day of that stage, and they will have significantly more time left to live as a result.
How to Keep Your Cowplant Alive?
Cowplants, similar to Sims, are not going to live forever, but, in contrast to Sims, they do not perish as a result of old age.
You can (in principle) have one cowplant for many generations so long as you make sure they are fed and cared for year after year.
Cowplants only die when they are neglected, thus this is the only way they can die.
At the very least, you should try to feed your cowplant once every twelve hours in order to prevent the cake from hanging from its mouth, which is a sign that the cowplant is hungry.
If you do not feed the cowplant within 12 hours of the cake forming, it will shrivel up and turn into an extremely sad cowplant skeleton.
Make sure you feed it.
