I remember that in old versions of Minecraft tamed wolves teleported to me when they were too far away.

Now I have problems getting cats through the Nether: they won't teleport to the Nether (and that's fine) nor they will teleport to me once I'm back to the overworld, like wolves used to do IIRC.

Is this normal cat behaviour? Is this normal behaviour for all tamed beasts now? Or are they somehow bugged? (obviously they are not in sitting stance)

Can I bring my cats with me, other than travelling solely via overworld?

(ps: we're talking about multiplayer here, just in case there still are differences with the single player)

  • they might be in unloaded chunks where they are in stasis (as in they won't do anything) – ratchet freak Sep 26 '13 at 10:52
  • @ratchetfreak so to make this work I need a second player to stay connected in the old location? – o0'. Sep 26 '13 at 10:56
  • there might also be a max distance to the teleport but yeah a second player (or leading them back to (the always loaded) spawn) will let them teleport – ratchet freak Sep 26 '13 at 11:03

    Oh, right. And now I'm reminded that cats teleporting is how the Cat Fountain works. Carry on. :) – SevenSidedDie Sep 26 '13 at 14:50

This might have something to do with the server render distance/your render distance. If the render distance on the server/client is too low, then it's likely that the cats won't teleport to you.

The cats might also be sitting. Right-click on them to make them not sit and (hopefully, if your server/client isn't just plain broken) teleport to you when you get far enough away.

Also, if you'd like your pets to go through a nether portal, you should have them stand in the portal fluid to teleport them there, then you got there, then you're all in the nether by your portal!

Unloaded chunks can cause pets to freeze. This is what happens when your render distance is set too low. If you'd like your pets to teleport to you while you're in the nether, have someone stand close enough to your pets to have their chunk rendered so they are able to teleport to you.

  • I think it's the fourth case, I'll try, thanks : ) – o0'. Sep 26 '13 at 15:41
