Minecraft is home to several mobs of adorable (yet aggressive) creatures that roam the many biomes of the blocky universe. Some mobs are more aggressive in nature, while others are more passive and can even be tamed. Not the least of which includes Cats. Of course, to tame and keep a Cat as a pet, you’re going to need to make sure they’re well fed.

This guide will break down everything you need to know about what Cats eat in Minecraft.

When it comes to Cats, they can be broadly categorized as stray cats and tamed cats. Strays naturally spawn and despawn but love to explore and attack other mobs like chickens, rabbits, and baby turtles. However, you can tame these stray cats and make them breed by giving them food.

Even though Cats in Minecraft have various colors and textures, they all love to eat the same food; raw salmon or cod. The “raw” distinction is key here as they have no interest in cooked fish. As you continue to feed them raw cod or salmon, you’ll be able to tame the Cat in Minecraft quite easily. Plus, food also helps to restore their health as well.

Tamed Cats offer various advantages in Minecraft, as this will essentially give you full control over them. One advantage is that cats and kittens can see you, even if you have your visibility status turned on. Kittens are also useful for keeping the creepers away.
