2. Feed The Cat Raw Fish

Now, we need to feed the cat either raw cod or raw salmon. In our example, we will be using raw cod.

To feed the cat the fish, place it in your Hotbar and use the following game controls:

  • Java Edition (PC/Mac), Windows 10 Edition, Education Edition: right click on the cat.
  • Pocket Edition (PE): move your pointer over the cat and press the Tame button.
  • Xbox 360, Xbox One: press the LT button
  • PS3, PS4: press the L2 button
  • Wii U, Nintendo Switch: press the ZL button

You may have to feed the cat more than one raw salmon or raw cod. Continue feeding the cat until red hearts appear around it.

Once the hearts disappear you will have a tamed cat that will act like a pet and follow the player that tamed them!
