Cats are mobs in minecraft and come a variety of colors. Certain types of them have special powers. Most of them are passive. You get cats by taming ocelots or lynxes. Oceolots require fish to be tamed and lynxes require raw meat.
Orange tabby, tuxedo, and siamese
These cats are considered normal and will not attack anything. They do however, scare away creepers. They drop absolutely nothing except exp when killed.
The angry cat is hostile mob and has a 5% chance to spawn instead of a regular cat when an ocelot is tamed. It deals 2 health points(1 heart) of damage. When killed it drops cat leather and exp. It does not scare creepers.
