Cats will now sit on chests, beds, and furnaces until you give them a fish. While a cat is sitting on a chest, the chest cannot be opened. Is there any way I can prevent a cat from sitting on a chest while still being able to open the chest?
See the list of items here where you can still open the chest.
- Liquids: Water and Lava.
- Plants: Leaves, Cactus (With a water source block on top), and Farmland.
- Translucent Blocks: Glass, Slabs, Stairs, Monster Spawner, Snow, Ice, Fence, Cake, Beds, Glowstone, and Chests.
- Non-Blocks: Torch, Redstone Torch, Redstone Wire, Redstone Repeater, Pressure Plates, Lever, Ladders, Rails, and Sign.
I personally like Fences because you can make a nice checkerboard pattern of chests and fences
The other solution is to place your chests in the ceiling with another block empty above them; nothing can get on top to sit on them.
Well, you can place a transparent block such as glass or glowstone above your chests or you can use a slab. If that doesn't look good, just place another chest on top of the first chest, that way, you have extra storage and, your cat can't get on top of either one, unless, there is a block next to the chests and the cat climbs up that block.
