If you’ve ever been annoyed with Minecraft creatures to the point that you just want to stop killing them over and over again and simply tame them to do your bidding, CritterPet is the mod for you. This is an extremely creative mod that gives players the ability to tame pretty much every single mob and creature there is in Minecraft and, once they’ve been successfully tamed, they can be used just like regular pets can. The mod definitely scores a lot of points for creativity and, alongside this, it’s been executed flawlessly as well, so there’s no doubt that you’ll enjoy using it.
One important thing worth mentioning about the CritterPet mod is the fact that it’s slightly difficult to get the hang of. Before you can actually tame and utilize pets, you’ll need to go through a few tedious processes. However, in the end, it’ll all be worth it because you’ll have a worthy companion by your side who’ll do all your bidding. Something rather surprising we noticed about CritterPet is that it’s not really all that popular. The mod came out back in 2015, and it’s still sitting at just below 7000 downloads. However, while the mod might not be as popular as some of the other high-quality Minecraft mods we’ve seen over the years, it’s still one of the most creative mods out there, and it’s sure to enhance your overall experience if you choose to give it a shot.
Perhaps the most crucial thing that you’ll need to remember about the CritterPet mod is that it’s only available for version 1.7 of Minecraft so you might have to downgrade your game in order to use it if you’ve already upgraded to the latest version of the game. All said and done, CritterPet is an expertly crafted mod that’s sure to add quite a lot of depth to your Minecraft experience.
