Remember it is a pre-release, it could get changed. I never thought about it before, but I guess I would prefer it if they were bred into domestic kittens, maybe have it a random chance when breeding it becomes a kitty as some would still want ocelots, the only thing is that ocelots/kittens don't yet have a function so let that be decided first
In the end though, it won't bother me until they have a function
Wouldn't it be great if you could use tame cats to fish ? That would kinda make sense, and it would give them a purpose! (Oh, and for all those who think fish is useless, just wait until you're spawned on an island too small for animals to spawn, with no land anywhere around even if you sail for days).
Yep I suggested something similar in another thread, make it so if a cat jumps in the water there's a small chance they'll come back with a dead fish to drop by your feet, similar to how some cats decide to drop dead mice by your feet as if you'll be proud of them.
Ugh...I hate the new ocelots...they're just jungle cats, they don't fit with the rest of the mobs...and they're tamable, WTH, we have a tamable mob, we don't need new one, we need a mob that does something different...ugh...I feel like it's a mod, I feel like it's Mo' Creatures...
Minecraft before Jeb was in charge was quite bland. At least the Ocelots add some flavor to an otherwise stale game.
I like the variety, the jungles are amazing. And who the hell said we have to stick with chickens and cows forever? I for one think that's a terrible idea.
If it was a wild cat when tamed then it'd be an even BIGGER rip-off of wolves. Honestly I love the idea of having a domestic cat, because sometimes I just, well, want a little kitty to have in my house in Minecraft. Wolves are there for 'Big strong scary hunty animal grrrr' . . .
I would be pissed off if Ocelots were just that and less, thank you very much.
When I saw the speculation that the new mob might be an ocelot yesterday, I was fine with it. A leopard in compact form is all it is. Today when I saw that they were the actual confirmed mob in the game, I was happy with that, knowing that monkeys would probably be added later with full AI.
But then I went to watch a video of the new Ocelots. Untamed, they looked awesome. I couldn't wait to go find one in my world....
...But then the player gave it fish. The mid size jungle feline morphed into a small domestic house cat...
Am I the only one who isn't ok with this?
Yea Im not OK with it. Cats are for the cat ladies. Lets at least get a cool looking cat so we are not all running around on servers with wimpy ***** cats
Well I guess it's just TOO BAD that Mojang is SUPER LAZY.
I mean, if they actually wanted to put some real time into making a new mob we would have something interesting instead of a new skin for the Wolf and some slight behavior tweaks (Oh, it eats fish and attacks chickens! That's totally different from a wolf! Wheee!)then it would've been nice. But it's very obvious that they just wanted to get a new mob out as quickly as possible, so this is what you get.
The ocelot didn't even exist a week ago. It's a freaking snapshot, they'll continue working on the mob.

I used to write original signatures, then I took an arrow to the knee.
That's cool, they're called wolves. The reason that they're not called dogs or even look like dogs before they're tamed is because having domesticated dogs roaming around is ****ing stupid. I say just drop the tameable crap right now and give Ocelots a cool feature, we don't need anymore pointless stuff in this game.
Imo It would be amazing if ALL domesticated mobs could be tamed-
They would only need a new skins for Cow (yaks with wheat), Pigs (Boars with mushrooms) and chickens (ducks/pheasants with seeds), Sheeps(rams with wheat/flower). And they could get 3 skins after tamed too! PLEASE?
