To breed cats in Minecraft, follow these steps:
- Find two tamed cats: First, you need to find two tamed cats. Cats can be found in villages and witch huts. To tame a stray cat, hold a raw fish (either raw cod or raw salmon) in your hand and stay still until the cat gets close enough. Feed the cat until hearts start appearing, and it has a collar.
- Feed the cats raw fish: Once you have two tamed cats, you need to feed them raw fish, either raw cod or raw salmon. You can easily find these fish in the game.
- Enter love mode: After feeding the cats raw fish, they will enter love mode.
- Wait for the baby kitten to spawn: A baby kitten should spawn within a few seconds after the cats enter love mode. The kitten will have a pattern of either one of its parents or a combination of both.
- Breeding cooldown: The parent cats cannot breed again for the next 5 minutes.
