IndyPets - Independent Pets

for Fabric Minecraft 1.16-1.19

Free Your Pets!



  • Disable the follow+teleport behavior of all tamed mobs, including modded ones!
  • Interact while sneaking to toggle for individual pets.
  • /indypets whistle and unwhistle commands or hotkeys to rally your army of pets!


You can own a lot of pets in Minecraft but three in particular have a behavior that causes them to teleport to you unless you force them to sit (which removes their interesting behaviors) or put them on leashes: cats, parrots, and wolves. With IndyPets, you can have a giant pen of cats, house of parrots, or den of wolves and not have to worry about them trying to follow you en masse unless you want them to!
You can watch cats act like cats and roam! Or just sit on beds and inventory chests...


This mod requires Cloth Config and Fabric API and can be configured via Mod Menu or the indypets.json config file in the config folder.
It can run completely server-side but it's recommended clients install it too for client → server config synchronization, translated text messages and whistle/unwhistle hotkeys.
By default, pets will not follow+teleport to you unless you tell them to do so by sneak-interacting (Shift + Right Click).

The /indypets whistle or unwhistle commands will make all nearby pets follow you or be dismissed again.
Both commands can take an optional type of pets you want to address (Auto-completion will show you which types of pets are around, so no need for guessing).

Conflicts / workarounds:

Pettable uses shift-interact to pet mobs but it checks for an empty hand, so you can still use IndyPets while holding an item.
Capybara uses shift-interact while holding a stick to change between sitting/standing. Set IndyPets to require an item other than a stick to be able to interact with the capybara.

Config logic used up to v0.4.1 taken from: ( Illuminations ) in file: Illuminations/src/main/java/ladysnake/illuminations/client/ by replacing relevant arguments with my own. It was CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 at the time.

Also, this video from TechnoVision really helped me figure out the initial setup.
