For a very, very long time the cats of Minecraft have been neglected. This mod aims to change that, breathing a whole new life into the soft little fluff balls of hate.

July 26th, 2022; I genuinely can't believe this mod has hit a million downloads. I've been in shock and completely overjoyed for the past two weeks about it! So much so, it sparked new inspiration. With that, I bring to you all version 0.2.0, with the new Silver/Smoke genes and true albinos! Plus, a couple extra things in 1.16.5 to truly bring it up to snuff.
I hope you enjoy and can't wait to bring more content soon! Ps. check out the new progress tracking trello linked above!!
The following images represent the 1.16.5 version of Simply Cats.
The very first thing you want to do is craft yourself a pet carrier or two... or more! Pet carriers will not break and do not stack, but they will only hold one pet at a time so make sure you have plenty to bring your adopted cats home in! Cats do not follow you by themselves, so these pet carriers will keep you sane trying to get home from a village.
Now you can set out on your mission to find these adoptable cuties! In almost every village, you will find a new structure that we will call the Pet Shelter.
With this new building comes a new villager as well! You can easily tell them apart by their cute yellow smock with a golden paw print on the front.
This villager has extra special trades for you that will cost a certain number of raw fish or bones! 1.16.5: To access the cat or dog trades, you will first have to unlock level 2 trades with the shelter worker. There will be 2 new trades, randomly chosen between 4 sterilization potions, a cat carrier, or a dog carrier!
Cats from the villager trade are never spayed/neutered, so they will breed if given the opportunity to. Remember, the carrier these pets come from are only temporary and will disappear once you release the pet inside.
There are also a few shelter pets inside! 1-3 dogs and 1-3 cats, all available for adoption with this mod's adoption certificate. Crafted with one paper and one ink sac, you can use it on the cat or dog you'd like to adopt! Shelter pets are always spayed/neutered, which means they cannot breed.
Congratulations! That's all there is to it. Now be sure to read up on the wiki for special item uses to get more information about your cats, and the most important section: breeding!
The cats in this mod work a little differently when it comes to their textures. Simply using the command /summon simplycats:cat will NOT work, it will spawn an invisible cat. To get this command to work without spawning a broken cat, you need to include data tags with the command. Check out the wiki page here for more detailed information!
