Raw Cod/Salmon

Raw Cod Raw Salmon

Basically, Raw Cod and Salmon are Fish, and you need a fish in order to tame a cat. So, you have to go fishing to grab a fish so that you can feed the cat. But, you need a fishing rod, then you will be able to do fishing. So, let’s first make a fishing rod.

Open crafting table of 3×3 crafting grids and place 3 sticks in diagonal, starts from the last column and then put 2 strings in the remaining boxes of the last column then you will get your fishing rod. This is how you can craft a fishing rod.

Now, you have to find a large water body so that you can quickly get a fish. After finding a large water body, you have to pick a fishing rod in your Hotbar and then cast the fishing line into the water. After casting, you will see a bobber or float at the end of the fishing line. Very soon, you will see bubbles near the bobber, which means fish are swimming, now you have to wait till the bubbles come to the fishing line, and as soon as the bobber pulled under the water, you have to reel back onto the fishing line. If you are pretty fast in drawing, you will definitely get a fish, and you will see a raw fish (Salmon/Cod) in your inventory. This is how you can get a fish in Minecraft.

Find A Cat

Without a cat, you can’t tame, so you need to find a stray cat. Mostly, you can find them roaming near in Plains, Desert, Savanna, and Taiga Village. Moreover, they also spawn in Witch Hunt in the Swampland biome.

Step 1: First of all, you need to get all the necessary materials mentioned above. I’m assuming that you got a raw cod or raw salmon and also found a stray cat.

Step 2: Now, you have to add the fish in the Hotbar so that you can easily switch over to fish from your inventory whenever you need it.

Step 3: It’s time to slowly move towards the stray cat because if you suddenly move fast like a cat, then he will start running away from you very fast, and this is because of animal’s natural behavior; that’s why I’m telling you to approach towards the cat slowly.

Step 4: Feed the cat, raw fish until you see a heart on the cat’s head; hearts on the head shows that you’re on the success path of taming the cat. To succeed, you have to continue feeding even after seeing hearts. Don’t stop feeding till the cat hasn’t eaten enough. How will you know that the cat is tamed now? When the cat stopped eating and a collar appears, this means you tamed the cat.

FAQs About Taming A Cat

How many fish does it take to tame a cat in Minecraft?

There isn’t defined a number for fish in order to tame a cat. But generally, you have to feed until you succeed in taming. So, I’ll recommend having at least 10-20 fish in your inventory.

Do Cats Kill Chickens?

Yes, they do. But mostly, they kill full-grown chickens to eat the meaty parts only and leave the rest scattered. However, you can train both of them to live like a friend so that your chickens will not be killed by your cats.


Finally, you have a pet in the world of Minecraft, and now you will feel that someone is here, who is with you anytime and anywhere. They will follow you wherever you go, and also, they have the ability to teleport about 12 blocks to get closer to you. The cat will walk around you until you tell them to sit.
