Where to Find a Cat in Minecraft? 

Before thinking about taming a cat and making it a pet, the first thing that you should do is find a cat to tame. Thankfully, cats in Minecraft are relatively easy to find. In villages with at least one villager and four beds, cats will usually spawn.

In fact, up to 10 cats can spawn for every four beds in a village, so you’ll also have a range of colors to choose from. 

Gathering the Materials

Taming a cat in Minecraft is pretty simple, and all you need is raw cod or salmon. You can get this by fishing, so you’ll have to craft a fishing rod first. 

Here’s how you can craft a fishing rod in Minecraft: 

  1. First, gather 3 Sticks and 2 Strings
  2. After that, put down your Crafting Table and use it. 
  3. On the 3×3 Crafting Grid, place 3 Sticks as shown below:

  1. Finally, put 2 Strings in the Crafting Grid and collect the Fishing Rod

Once done, you’re all set to go fishing for salmon or cod. 

Find a large body of water in your world to start your fishing. The larger the body of water, the higher chance for you to catch a fish. Pick up the fishing rod in your hot bar and cast the fishing line into the water.

After a while, you should notice bubbles pop out of the water from the salmon swimming. The bubbles will slowly approach your fishing line if you wait patiently, and once the bobber is pulled under the water, reel back onto the fishing line as far as possible. 

If you’re successful, a fish should appear in your inventory. Do this process as much as you want, or until you have enough fish to feed the cats, you want to tame.
