The result was merge. - Asterick6 21:52, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
I think this should be merged with the Ocelot as of the Cat and the Ocelot is the same thing. It it like the wolf that have 3 different modes: hostile / passive / friendly. - CheatCat 20:57, 26 January 2012 (UTC)
Since it seems that the merge in question has been agreed to, and has been completed, is there a reason for the merge message to still be on the page?Mattman00000 16:15, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
 But what does it do?
Do cats attack mobs like Wolves do, or are they just vanity pets? Frankly, it wouldn't surprise me if this was the case because cats in real life are kind of like that. Cobalt32 00:43, 27 January 2012 (UTC)
- Well, as of the new snapshot, 12w05a/b, they can ward off creepers. GhengopelALPHA –The preceding undated comment was added on 21:18, 2 February 2012. Please sign your posts with ~~~~
- They don't attack anything, except apparently Chickens. It doesn't happen to me... but they say it does. They don't attack creepers either, to the best of my knowledge. Creepers just get scared by them. Numbermaniac 06:17, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
 Cats try to dig under fences
In my 12w08a world, I've noticed that next to a chicken coop, my cat tries to 'dig' under the fence (dirt particles appear). Has anyone else noticed this?
--Pi399 04:40, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
Are you sure he wasn't sprinting? 22.214.171.124 07:19, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
Well, I'm not certain, but the cat was at a 90-degree angle to the coop, and did this multiple times. I do not think the cat was sprinting.
--Pi399 18:20, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
The cat was probably trying to sprint to the chicken behind the fence, but failed to acknowledge that the fence was in its way and keeping it from reaching the chicken. Cobalt32 18:47, 25 March 2012 (UTC)
- Cobalt32 is right. The cat isn't digging; it's sprinting towards the chicken, even though there's a fence in between. Numbermaniac 07:54, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
 My ocelots are freezing.
So I'm in the jungle biome, and I see an ocelot, which is pretty big news to me because I never see ocelots. I go up to the ocelot, right-click on it with a raw fish, and nothing happens. I try attacking it, and I can't touch it (it doesn't turn red, it doesn't run) and I just start digging at the block past the ocelot. Why is this happening? Is it a new bug?
 How do you change a baby ocelot into a kitten?????
my little brother was playing the game and he was taming kittens. well i tried to but it wont work they just won't change. though whenever my little brother tries it always works. HELP!--126.96.36.199 01:57, 4 November 2012 (UTC)
- If you were taming the baby ocelot in an enclosed space of less than 7x7, it won't work. It has to be able to roam in an area larger than 7x7. Numbermaniac 07:46, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
A faster way to do this is get some full-grown cats and breed them. It is easier to turn a full-grown ocelot into a cat than a baby. Meeples10 00:08, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
 Not able to tame?
I don't know why, but I can't tame ocelots in creative mode. And that's that.
- You can't bury them in a ditch of any sort. They must be in an area of at least 7x7, otherwise they cannot be tamed. Numbermaniac 07:47, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
My bug sort of goes along with this; when I try to tame an ocelot by feeding it fish, it goes into love mode. I've gone through 9 fish with one ocelot. This is with 188.8.131.52.33.201.33 17:47, 24 February 2013 (UTC)Aaron
- You may need several fish. Feeding it 9 and not having it tamed is just unlucky. If you find another one, try it again. It will show love hearts, until it turns into a cat. Numbermaniac 06:47, 25 February 2013 (UTC)
I kinda hve this problem....I hve Minecraft 1.4.7,and,ocelots dunt seem 2 exist anymore.Only when I spawn them,and,they wunt turn into cats!:c X3MinecraftWolfLuverx3 06:41, 1 March 2013 (EST)Jennica
- They won't spawn in superflat, and they only spawn in jungles. I don't get why you can't tame them. Make sure they have at least a 7x7 space to roam, and make sure they are coming towards you first. Numbermaniac 01:54, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
- I corrected the spelling mistakes there. Don't feel bad, I have a problem with spelling. My solution? Keep a dictionary on hand. Robstar14... anything but! 17:28, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
My cat wont sit,move,or tp to me. what should i do? Go4cyclones 16:17, 1 December 2012 (UTC)
- I'm a different user with the same problem, converted ocelot to a cat, it just sits there. I can push it, but otherwise it just sits there. Far too similar to my real cat. 184.108.40.206 03:51, 24 March 2013 (UTC)Chris P
- If you want advice on that, you'll need to give more detail.
- Perhaps it's trying to imitate your real cat. Just joking, but I'm not definitely sure. However, if you play the game with one username, tame the cat there, then use a different username, the cat will ignore you. The cat belongs to a different username, and therefore wouldn't respond to you. -- (T) Numbermaniac (C) 04:48, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

 Ocelots turning green with no heads
An ocelot can turn into a cat as you know but when mine did they we green and had NO HEADS!!! IT IS CRAZY AND TRUE by avalon678
- Sounds like you have a broken texture pack. -- Orthotope 22:19, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
 Ocelots seem to only spawn with "spawn monsters" on
On my server, both vanilla and craftbukkit, ocelots only spawn when I turn on "spawn monsters". This includes 1.4.5 Bmenrigh 02:59, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
- Ocelots are added to the hostile monster spawn list, rather than the passive animal one. This appears to be the intended behavior, though you'd have to ask Mojang why they decided to do it that way. -- Orthotope 03:04, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
 Minecart glitch doesn't happen anymore.
The article states that when you put a cat into a minecart, it causes this massive image glitch. I tested this in 13w06a, and it doesn't happen there. I added a comment due to this, asking if anyone could test to see if this still happens in 1.4.7. Would someone please be able to do that? Thanks. Numbermaniac 07:53, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
 Cats not killing chickens?
My pet orange cat doesn't seem to kill chickens that go nearby. Does anyone know why? I'm using 13w07a. Numbermaniac 01:54, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
Cats don't kill chickens, only ocelots. Meeples10 00:11, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
 History Table?
What happened to the history table on this page? why is it just all plain text? Numbermaniac 06:15, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
- The History template was not made when most articles started years ago. Because of this, there's still a few article history sections that don't use the template, notably articles that predate the template or new articles that really never got it. Over time, a few users have cleaned up article history sections.

- Oh ok. I did not know that. Thanks. Numbermaniac 07:52, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
 Are Ocelots/cats in the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft?
I was wondering if they were in the Xbox version, but I haven't see any since I've played. Maybe they'll come in the next update? I am unable to play Minecraft on PC, or Android, so will they come to Minecraft Xbox 360 later on(or have they already been added)?
- Does the article say anything? If not, explore the jungle on easy or higherand check if they exist. -- (T) Numbermaniac (C) 21:14, 27 March 2013 (UTC)
 Baby ocelots occur naturally
Am I right in thinking they're the only mob (except villagers, which 'breed' in a different way to other mobs) which can as babies without being bred by the player?
Do baby ocelots spawn or do wild ocelots breed naturally? And if the former, is it random whether they spawn as babies or adults or do they always spawn as babies and then grow up, and why/how do the babies usually seem to be following an adult?
Does anyone know? 220.127.116.11 15:21, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
- They don't breed on their own, as far as I can tell. Each ocelot spawned either naturally or from an egg has a 1/7 chance of spawning with two babies. -- Orthotope 18:34, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
 unused sound + difficulty restriction
I've been peicing things together and I have come to a near conclusion. Ocelots may have been, early on, or may be in the future, hostile. The hissing sounds and the fact they don't spawn on peaceful... I don't know... This sounds like a thing for the forums but... I just... I don't know... Robstar14... anything but! 17:38, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
- They are on the "hostile" monster list. That's why they don't spawn on peaceful. It could be they are or were planned to be dangerous, although I wonder if it's because they have an antagonistic relationship with the player - they run away rather than attack, but all the other passive or neutral mobs are indifferent unless you attack them. So you could argue that they are hostile. 18.104.22.168 21:35, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
 Breeding sitting cats
I edited the page a while back (as a different IP) to clarify about breeding sitting cats. It said (correctly) that they will go into love mode if fed while sitting, but then said that "they cannot breed until released from the sit".
I changed this to "...at least one of them is released..." and added a sentence about choosing the kitten's colour.
I see that the piece about colour-choosing has since been deleted and the line about breeding while sitting changed to an assertion that "they cannot breed while sitting" (emphasis in original).
The original explanation was unclear, but this is simply incorrect. I have bred many cats, on single-player worlds and multiplayer servers, and I always breed with one cat sitting, as it make it easier to control them. It works without fail, and the colour-selection works without fail as well. I have also repeated the experiment today to make certain that it wasn't changed in a recent update: I fed raw fish to a standing siamese cat and a sitting ginger, the siamese ran straight to the ginger, and a siamese kitten immediately materialised.
I have no wish to edit-war, but unless someone has some evidence that my copy of Minecraft is broken or I'm hallucinating these cats, I would like to change it back to a correct statement and include what I feel is a useful and relevant piece of information about selecting a kitten's colour. 22.214.171.124 14:55, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
