How to tame an ocelot in Minecraft?

Ocelot is one of the game's neutral mobs, living only in the jungle biome. He can later be tamed. In appearance, the ocelots resemble a small cheetah and are the first mob capable of acceleration. They can pounce on chickens - first hiding and sneaking up to hunt down the victim, and upon reaching the desired distance immediately make an attack. When a player approaches, they immediately run away from him or start hiding in the grass until the player comes close. Because of this factor, taming an ocelot in Minecraft is not so easy.

Instruction: how to tame an ocelot in minecraft

First you need to stock up on a decent amount of fish, which the ocelot loves very much, but only in its raw form. It can be caught in almost any reservoir with a fishing rod. Tip: Fish are best caught in the rain.

Having found the ocelot in the jungle, you need to pick up in advance the stocked fish and wait. The important point: you need not move, because with any sudden movement the beast will run away from the player, sensing the danger.If done correctly, the ocelot will begin to stare at the fish, carefully approaching the player waiting for him. When he comes close you can safely give him food. Each time a different number of fish units is spent on domestication, and the chance of successful domestication is about 50 to 50.

There is also a possibility that a tamed kitten may appear next to the ocelot.

After taming the ocelots change their color, turning into a cat. They will follow the player everywhere and may even teleport after him if he has moved too far. They can obey commands "stand up" and "sit." The main advantages of cats, strongly distinguish them from other domesticated animals, are two factors.

  1. The first is if a tamed ocelot is pushed onto the chest, giving the command to sit, then other players will not be able to open this chest, which is a good defense.
  2. The second factor - they are one of the most dangerous enemies - creeps, they are very afraid of cats, running away from them, thus traveling to the dungeons with the cat becomes much safer.
