What Do Ocelots Eat in Minecraft

Posted on

Ocelots are one of the passive mobs in Minecraft. Passive mobs mean that they are harmless mobs and they will not attack the player even when they are provoked or attacked. You may wonder about the food that is eaten by ocelots since you want to tame them.

So, what do ocelots eat in Minecraft? Ocelots eat raw cod or raw salmon. So, if you want to breed them or tame them, you will need raw cod or cod salmon to be fed to the ocelots. If you breed ocelots, it will create an ocelot kitten. If the ocelot has completed breeding, they are not able to be bred again for 5 minutes. So, if you want to breed again after you successfully did it, you have to wait for 5 minutes.


If you want to tame an ocelot, you will also need to feed them using raw salmon or raw cod until the breeding particles show. If an ocelot trusts you, you do not have to hold a raw fish again because they do not run away from a trusted player.

Do you want to tame an ocelot using a raw cod or raw salmon? Then, you are able to follow the steps below.

  • First, you must find an ocelot to tame. If you think that it is difficult to find one, you are able to summon an ocelot by using a cheat or you are able to use a spawn egg.
  • If you have found an ocelot, you have to give a raw fish.  Do it by adding the raw fish to your inventory and then choose the raw fish in your hotbar. Then, when you are holding the raw fish, make sure that you do not move. It is because if you move, you will make the ocelot scared and then they will go. If you are able to be very still, the ocelot will notice the fish in your hand and then the ocelot will walk over to you.
  • When the ocelot has walked to you, you have to hold out the fish to the ocelot. To use the fish, you need to know the game control:

o   If you use Java Edition (PC/Mac), you must right click and hold.

o   If you use Pocket Edition (PE), you must tap and hold.

o   If you use PS3 and PS4, you must press and hold the L2 button on the PS controller.

o   If you use Xbox 360 and Xbox One, you must press and hold the LT button on the Xbox controller.

o   If you use Windows 10 Edition, you must right click and hold.

o   If you use Wii U, you must press and hold the ZL button on the gamepad.

o   If you use Nintendo Switch, you must press and hold the ZL button on the controller.

o   If you use Education Edition, you must right click and hold.

  • When you use the fish, you will see red hearts which appear around the ocelot and then the ocelot will turn into a cute cat since it has been tamed.

If the process of taming is finished, you will see the hearts will disappear. Then, the ocelot will behave like a cat.
