Ocelots can no longer be tamed

In bedrock version 1.8+, and java edition 1.14+, ocelots are no longer tamable. You will need to find stray cats, which spawn near villages, to tame them as a pet.

Excerpt from the minecraft wiki page,

  • Ocelots
    • Can no longer be tamed.
    • The player can still feed them to gain their trust.
    • Ocelots can now be fed pufferfish and tropical fish items.


  • Stray cats
    • Spawn in villages.
    • Can be tamed using fish.
    • Bring gifts to the player.
    • Have dyeable collars, like dogs.
