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?

SIKE! DAS DA WRONG NUMBAH!

They'll probably "split" it, so that you'll have wild ocelots that breed domestic cats.
Yeah, you wouldn't get that in one generation in the real world. But neither would you be able to access an islandic dimension home to a giant black dragon with a purple face by combining pearls used by rare tall black creatures to teleport, with goo made from a giant cubic slime that lives underground and dust smashed from rods that make up a firey metallic creature that only lives in fortresses in an alternate dimension made of lava and blood-stained rock, and placing it on a special block that is only found in a square above a pit of lava in a room with boxes that create massive silverfish in a gigantic underground structure made of stone bricks that only two or three of exist on the planet.
If cats MUST be included, they should be BRED from ocelots.
It doesn't make sense for a full-on transformation to occur.
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.
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.
Do cats actually, you know, DO anything? Is there any reason for them to be in the game in the first place? I mean, it's nice to see some biome themed animals but they're just a more useless and more pain in the ass wolf right now. And it doesn't fit Minecraft's theme... At all.

Well they made the mob in 1 week so.... Yea... Its probably not finished
It bugs me because it is really bizarre and unrealistic. I mean when you tame a wolf it doesn't turn into a freaking golden retriever, why should this turn into a house cat?
I'm just hoping that this is a pre-release thing that will be fixed soon. My guess is jeb plans to make it so that maybe offspring will have a chance to look like housecats and this is just the precursor to that coding.
