A Step-by-Step Guide to Taming Cats in Minecraft

In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the process of taming these furry feline friends in the game, along with some helpful tips to make the process smooth and successful.

Step 1:

Find a Cat The first step in taming a cat is to locate one in the Minecraft world. Cats typically spawn in villages or as strays in plains, savannas, and villages. They have different coat colors, making them a delightful addition to any player’s pet collection. You can identify a stray cat by its ocelot-like appearance and its wary behavior towards players.

Step 2:

Gather Fish Cats in Minecraft can be tamed using raw fish, specifically raw salmon or raw cod. Fish can be obtained by fishing in water bodies or killing fish mobs in the game. It’s recommended to have a few pieces of raw fish with you before attempting to tame a cat, as the process may require multiple attempts.

Step 3:

Approach the Cat Slowly Once you’ve spotted a cat you want to tame, approach it slowly. Sudden movements or loud noises might scare the cat away. To avoid this, crouch while moving towards the cat by holding the shift key (or the crouch button on mobile).

Step 4:

Feed the Cat With the cat within your reach, select the raw fish from your inventory and right-click (or tap on mobile) on the cat to feed it. Be patient as the cat may not accept the fish on the first try. You might need to repeat this step a few times until the cat becomes interested in you.

Step 5:

The Trust Process After successfully feeding the cat, you’ll notice heart particles around it. This indicates that the cat is now “trustful” towards you. However, it is not tamed just yet. You need to wait for the trust process to complete. The time it takes to fully trust you varies, but typically it can take up to five minutes of remaining nearby.

Step 6:

The Taming Process Once the cat is fully trustful, it’s time for the taming process. Right-click (or tap on mobile) on the cat again to initiate the taming. You’ll see heart particles again, indicating that the cat is now tamed and officially your pet!

Step 7:

Behavior of Tamed Cats Tamed cats will follow you around and can be ordered to sit or stand by right-clicking (or tapping) on them with an empty hand. They can also scare away nearby creepers, which is a helpful defense mechanism during your Minecraft adventures.


Congratulations! You’ve successfully tamed a cat in Minecraft and gained yourself a loyal companion for your future escapades. Remember to be patient during the taming process, and ensure you have enough raw fish at hand. Tamed cats add a wonderful touch to your in-game experience, making your journey through the pixelated world even more enjoyable.
