i cannot figure out how to make my cats and dogs follow me in minecraft! i looked it up and got the answer a bunch of times and they all didn't work, if the type of computer effects anything, i have a macbook pro, but soon i will be having all my information loaded to a MacBook because my macbook pro is so slow and buggy, anyway, i just tame an ocelot, then when it turns to cat, it just goes wherever it pleases, same with the dogs. Every time they just won't follow me! plz help! Thanks! if your answer doesn't work Thanks anyway!
I think I have an idea of what that poster meant and If i'm right you can ignore that piece of advice completely.
Anyway, as has already been said, when a pet is following you they will wander off around a certain distance but they will follow you if you get too far away. If you're moving too fast for it to catch up and it gets too far away your pet will teleport to you. It should be noted this does not apply to water and ice blocks. For example, if you're running along ice and there is no land near enough to you for it to be considered close enough to you for your pet to teleport, it wont.
