How to find a cat in Minecraft?

Before we can find a cat to tame and make into our pet, we need to get one. Thankfully, finding cats will not be a challenge – they spawn in villages with at least one villager and four beds. Catching them is the difficult part, but just getting there shouldn’t be too bad.

In order to tame a cat in Minecraft all you need is:

Raw Cod or Raw Salmon

To feed your cat, you will need a fish. Raw cod or salmon can be obtained by fishing. To get started, create a fishing rod with the following recipe:

To increase your chances at catching a fish, find a body of water with plenty of open space. Once you found one, equip the fishing rod in your hot bar. Cast the line into it and wait for the bobber to move or sink to initiate an action. Wait until you see bubbles come up from the water and then wait for it to become closer to the fishing line. When it seems as if you can no longer see it, then jerk your rod sharply so that the bobber is dragged under water quickly. When the fish bites, reel back on the fishing line as far as possible; if you’re successful they’ll bite and appear in your inventory.
