There are a lot of mobs in Minecraft. One of them is ocelots which are passive mobs and can be found in jungles. They spawn above grass blocks or leaves at sea level (y=63 per default) or higher in groups of 1 or 2. If an adult ocelot spawn, there is a 1/7 chance for 2 ocelot kittens to spawn with it.

Ocelots can attack chickens and baby turtles. Before they chase an animal, they will sneak and stalk it. They are able to kill through a fence or a door if they are against it. Even though ocelots are immune to fall damage, they still avoid falls. They are able to see the player even with the invisibility effect.
