Visit the Minecraft Wiki for basic information about Ocelot

Ocelot is a mob added by vanilla Minecraft.

Ocelots are passive mobs that spawn in jungle biomes. When tamed, they become cats, and will change skins. Cats will follow the Player and will teleport if they are too far away.

In Hexxit, Comet Kitties are mobs based on Ocelot, having exactly same behavior and almost same appearance.

Creepers will run away from Ocelots, cats and comet kitties, even if provoked by the player, making them a great defense against a Creeper ambush. Players can use cats to ward Creepers away from entrances, key points, or even an entire perimeter of land.

Appearance[edit | edit source]


When untamed, these felines have yellow fur with black and brown spots, a gray-black nose, and green eyes. Once tamed, their skin will change to either ginger tabby, tuxedo, or Siamese. Of these, the tabby and tuxedo skins have green eyes, while the Siamese cats have blue eyes. In every case, their tails are in two segments to show curve. A tamed Ocelot is noticeably smaller than an untamed one.

Taming[edit | edit source]

An Ocelot can be tamed by attracting it to the player with Raw Fish, then feeding it Raw Fish, which can turn it into one of three breeds of Cat that will then follow the player. Taming an Ocelot is likely to take more than one fish; two to five on average, but it can take up to twenty.

The player can only tame Ocelots (and Comet Kitties) under the following conditions:

  • The Ocelot must approach the player of its own accord, which happens when it sees the player holding a Raw Fish and acting in a non-threatening manner (details below). Feeding an Ocelot by chasing, trapping, or cornering it will not result in taming it, even though the Ocelot may take the Fish this way and the floating heart animation will display.
  • There must be a 7x7 minimum horizontal block area that the Ocelot has physical access to during the taming attempt, or else it will "feel trapped" and not be tameable.
  • There must be no hostile mobs attacking during the taming attempt.

Breeding[edit | edit source]

Breeding Two cats with a newly bred kitten. When tame cats are fed raw fish, they will immediately enter "breed-mode", and if two cats are fed, they will breed. Breeding will create a kitten, and the parents cannot be bred again for a five-minute delay. They can be bred with Comet Kitties, which will always bear a random-color Ocelot.
