In a Nutshell:
To tame a cat first all you have to do is find a stray cat. After finding a stray cat, try to approach it and use a raw fish on the cat. Keep using raw fish on the cat until hearts appear above its head.
As we all know that Minecraft is an open-world game and from time to time this game reaches more people and becomes their most favorite game. The unique thing about this game is bringing real-world’s stuff in this game.
For your kind information let me tell you that there are many animals you can see in the game and all of them are so adorable. You can make them your pet by feeding them.
However, it is necessary to feed them the right thing if you wanna tame them. They will also protect you from creepers.
That’s why taming them is a good idea to get a pet or if I say to get an animal friend.
Cats in Minecraft
As I said cats are also tamable passive mobs and they can easily be found in villages and swamp huts. The most awesome thing about cats is their appearances.
Yeah, you heard right unlike dogs, cats have many different appearances, and that’s really awesome thing about cats. Right now there are 11 different skins are available that a cat can have.
Here’s the list of all colors and their shades:
- Black cats: Their skin color is completely black and comes with orange eyes.
- Calico cats: They have orange, white, and dark brown in their skin and comes with yellow and blue eyes.
- British Shorthair cats: These kinds of cats have silver skin with yellow eyes.
- Jellie cats: Here you will also see two different colors in their skin (gray and white) with gray-green eyes.
- Persian cats: Just like original Persian cats here they also have a creamy look with blue eyes and flat faces.
- Red cats: Not completely red skin in color little light so you can say orange and white skin with green eyes.
- Ragdoll cats: These kinds of cats have white and soft amber with blue eyes.
- Siamese cats: white and pale brown with blue eyes.

After taming them they will also have a red collar just like dogs and with that, they look more good and adorable. Just like dogs (wolves), cats also have the same range to teleport, around 12 blocks away.
By pressing use on any tamed cat you can also order your cat to sit or to stand. By feeding them you can order the cat to sit or stand.
So without further ado let’s talk about our main topic…
How to tame a cat in Minecraft
To tame a cat you have to first find a cat, but finding a cat is a little difficult, but don’t worry I am here, now I am gonna tell you the best places to find cats in Minecraft…so without further ado let me tell you where you can find cats so easily…
Where to find a cat in Minecraft?
This is one of the most challenging parts of taming a cat in Minecraft, and you all know that if you won’t able to find any cat then you will not able to tame any.
However, you can find a cat at any place in Minecraft but there are some places too where you can find more cats.
Basically, cats can be found near settlements, so it means a cat can be found easily in a village or near any village.
The most common places where you can easily find a stray cat in Minecraft:
- Savanna Villages
- Taiga Villages
- Plains Villages
- Desert Villages
Note: You also have to remember one thing that until there is no villager or at least four beds in the village then there you won’t see any cat. A cat can easily spawn for every four valid beds, and the maximum number of cats is 10.
However, if a cat spawns with the creation of a village will not despawn, otherwise, any additional cats can be despawned.
Facts about black cats: This is a little interesting but it’s true that black cats can only spawn during a full moon, though it is only in java edition.
In bedrock edition, it’s the same but the number of maximum cats is around 5 cats for 20 or more owned beds, though only owned beds are counted for this purpose.
Note: If the number of cats found is less than the quota, the village tries to spread a cat or kitten in a volume of 16 × 6 × 16 blocks centered around the village.
If a grass block is inside of swamp huts upon world generation then there are high chances of spawning black cats additionally. An awesome fact about these cats is they won’t despawn.
However, if you want other skin-colored cats then all you have to do is use spawn eggs, breeding, and by using commands without cat typeset.
Note: A new cat will not spawn inside the hut until a cat is within a 16×8×16 block volume.
Now it’s time to create the most important thing to catch a raw fish. As I said before that if you wanna tame a cat then you have to feed them raw fish.
