Thanks to EA I got early access. So this is an early access report (shouldn't change until the actual release)

 

I don't see any bad effects from the households other than that they look weird.

[CoL] Wild fox households are visible with lots of visual issues

How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.77.131.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them except Journey to Batuu.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Visit any lot with the Wild Foxes challenge and wait for a fox to appear. Then go to Manage Worlds and view the list of households.
What happens when the bug occurs? Households of foxes are shown with distorted images, and if you try to edit these households in CAS you are shown broken animations and UI.
What do you expect to see? Normal household images, animations and UI, if not completely hidden fox households.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. After installing Cottage Living.

I suspect wild fox households are not meant to be visible, but they are, with some very strange looking glitches. This started happening before I reinstalled/updated my mods. I've also included screenshots of the glitched household image and CAS screen below.

Yes, I'm seeing this too. I think in game the foxes appear just fine. It's just that they don't seem to be designed to show up in Manage Households and when you do try to view them in CAS, there's no CAS mode for foxes, so they look all weird and stretched out on a dog body rig.

@crinrict I am having this issue too and weirdly I had one instance where a fox was added to a family in the town. I do have MCC so it may have been because of that.

Hey, I have had so many fox bugs since downloading Cottage Living and I am upset because my household fox no longer has any options to pet/ socialise with him, even though they have the best relationship and are companions. I wonder if the lot traits have altered the relationship interactions, but my pet fox is getting really lonely. All I can do is walk him or take an simstagram pic of him. I really need this bug fixed in order to be able to play with my pet fox again.

They can even join households. So much for Cottage Living animals not taking up household slots.

Obviously it will only happen on its own with a mod (in my case, MCCC) (or maybe a cheat?), but you could easily add a fox to your household my merging households even without mods.

 

Of course, I have no idea what kind of bugs that would cause. I'm going to delete this one, just in case.

this also happens to me, it is as if the game takes them as human sims, I noticed that they even have human traits, I would not mind, but the foxes appear immobile in my house and I cannot have interactions with them...
