How to Tame a Cat in Minecraft

Exploring Minecraft is fun, but having a pet around you while doing it can amplify the enjoyment experienced by a player. If you wish to have a partner in your journey of exploration or want someone to be waiting for you when you return to base, having a pet is your go-to solution. What better to have as a pet than a cat. 

This guide will help you understand the process of taming a cat, and how easy it is to accomplish this yourself. Without further ado, let’s dive right in! 

Where to find a cat in Minecraft?

Before we can think about taming a cat and making a pet out of it, the first step is to find a cat. Cats are, luckily, fairly easy to locate. In villages with a minimum of one villager and four beds, cats spawn. Cats (up to 10) can spawn for every four beds in a village, so you'll have a range of colours to pick from.

Required Materials:

In order to tame a cat in minecraft all you need is:

  1. Raw Cod or Raw Salmon

The only items required for this is fish to feed the cat. Raw Cod or Salmon can be obtained by fishing. First, craft a fishing rod using the following recipe:


Then find a water body preferably a large one to improve your chances. Pick the fishing rod in your hot bar once you've located a large body of water. Cast the fishing line into the water. Shortly afterwards, you should start to see bubbles start to pop out of the water from the salmon swimming. The bubbles will come closer to the fishing line if you wait patiently, and soon the bobber will be dragged under the water. As soon as that happens you have to reel back onto the fishing line as far as possible. If you manage to nail the pull, a fish will pop up in your inventory.

We have the required materials, now it’s time to tame a cat.

Step-2: Switch to the fish

In your hotbar, switch over to the fish in your inventory so that you can use it when needed.

Step-3: Slowly approach the cat

Usually, all pets are initially afraid of the players and will try to run away from them, which is why it is crucial to approach it slowly to prevent it from hurrying off.

Step-4: Use the fish

Use the raw fish on the cat, and continue feeding the cat rawer fish until hearts appear above its head. These hearts symbolize the success of taming. You will likely have to feed it multiple times to get it to like you, so stock up on fish before you attempt this. When the cat has eaten enough, the hearts will disappear and the cat will gain a collar.

Q. Can you tame the witch's cat in Minecraft?

An untamed black cat generates a world generation alongside a witch inside swamp huts. This cat never despawns, and can be tamed like any other, but only in the absence of witches.

Q. How many fish do you need to tame a cat in Minecraft?


The number of fish required varies from cat to cat, and species to species making it difficult to denote a single number. However, it is advisable to stock up as many as 20 fish for taming a cat.

Q. What's the rarest cat in Minecraft?

Given that the black cat can only spawn in with huts, it can be called the rarest cat since villages are an often sight and all the other cats spawn there.


Congratulations. You now have a pet cat! Once you’ve successfully tamed a cat, it will follow you around wherever you go. Even if you lose track of your cat they can teleport back to you within a 12 block range. Tamed cats do not stay still for long and wander around the player unless ordered to sit. There is a possibility a tamed cat will sleep with them as a player goes to sleep at night. There is a possibility that a pet cat would have a gift like a string, raw chicken, a rabbit's foot, and other things for you when they wake up.
