Cats are passive creatures that can be tamed by players, and can be found around villages. At the moment, there are a total of eleven aesthetic variants of cats.
These are animals that can be tamed by players and, as with wolves, a red collar appears around their necks when they are tamed. The color of the collar can be changed thanks to the use of dyes.
To tame a cat we will have to feed it raw cod or raw salmon. Once tamed, the cat will meow often and will follow the player, unless we right-click on it, which will make it sit still.
When we sleep in bed at night, our tamed cats will sleep next to us and there is a 70% chance that, when the character wakes up, the cat will give us an object, random among seven possibilities, as a gift.
We will often see cats roaming around in the villages, as this is their spawn point. Wild, undomesticated cats will always try to run away from players. Although they are passive creatures, cats will attack turtle hatchlings and rabbits. While adult cats can float indefinitely in water, hatchlings will drown if they are not rescued. Although cats are immune to fall damage, they will always avoid falling off cliffs.
Cats can restore their health if we give them raw cod or raw salmon. Also, by giving them this food they will go into mating mode giving life to a baby cat. Although slowly, we can increase the growth process of a kitten by feeding it raw cod or raw salmon. For each unit of food, its growth is increased by 10%.
Cats are generated around villages, depending on the number of valid beds in a village. Specifically, one cat will be generated for every four valid beds in a village. The generation of cats in a village has a limit, and this is a maximum of 10 cats generated per village. In addition to the villages, the black cat variant can be generated in the witches’ huts in the swamp biome.
