Minecraft players love having pets but they need to tame the desired animal first. Here’s how to tame a cat in Minecraft and get gifts from it as a pet.
The Minecraft world is full of animals that you can tame for a wide range of benefits. While some like horses offer mobility, others like cats are simply great pets. The latter is a passive mob and when you wake up after sleeping during the night (not during the day or during a thunderstorm), it hands you a gift.
Cats are immune to fall damage and they offer protection to their owners from creepers and phantoms. This explains why they are one of the most sought-after mobs in the sandbox game.
On that note, here’s you can tame a cat in Minecraft.

Where to find a cat in Minecraft

How to tame a cat in Minecraft

Following an untamed cat can be quite tedious as they are scared of players. However, within a few minutes, the cat should turn around and accept the fish. Use right-click (PC) to feed the cat and continue doing so until red hearts appear above its head.
The red hearts indicate that the cat is tamed. Now, your pet cat will follow you everywhere and even teleport if you’re quite far. You can use the right-click button on a PC to make a cat sit and a lead can allow you to control its movement.
