How do you tame a cat in ocelot?

Answered by Edward Huber

Taming a cat in Minecraft requires interacting with ocelots. Ocelots are passive mobs that can be found in Jungle Biomes or spawned using a spawn egg. To tame an ocelot and make it a cat companion, you need to follow a few steps.

1. Finding Ocelots: Ocelots are native to Jungle Biomes, so you will need to explore these areas to locate them. Keep in mind that they are relatively rare, so it may take some time to come across one.

2. Approach Slowly: When you spot an ocelot, it’s important to approach it slowly and cautiously. They are skittish creatures, and if you move too quickly, they will run away. To tame one successfully, you need to gain its trust.

3. Crouch and Stay Still: To prevent the ocelot from running away, you need to crouch by pressing the Shift key on your keyboard. This will make your character move slowly and silently. Once you are crouching, try to get as close to the ocelot as possible without scaring it off.

4. Offering Fish: To tame an ocelot, you need to offer it one of the following raw fish: Raw Fish, Raw Salmon, Clownfish, or Pufferfish. Hold the fish in your hand and right-click on the ocelot to present it with the food. The ocelot will cautiously approach and eat the fish.

5. Repeat the Process: Taming an ocelot requires multiple successful attempts. You will need to offer it several fish before it fully trusts you. Each time you feed it, hearts will appear above its head, indicating progress towards taming.

6. Patience and Persistence: Taming an ocelot into a cat can be a time-consuming process. It’s important to be patient and persistent. If the ocelot runs away after being offered fish, simply locate another one and try again. Eventually, you will be able to tame it successfully.

7. Transforming into a Cat: Once you have tamed an ocelot, it will transform into a cat. The appearance of the cat can vary, ranging from a Siamese cat to a ginger cat or a black cat. The type of fish you used to tame the ocelot does not affect the cat’s appearance.

8. Cat Behavior: Cats in Minecraft have their own unique behaviors. They will often follow you around, scare away Creepers, and sit or sleep when they are not actively following you. You can also make them sit or stand by right-clicking on them.

Taming a cat in Minecraft can be a rewarding experience, as they make great companions in your virtual adventures. Remember to be patient, approach ocelots slowly, and offer them fish to gain their trust.
