    I think when you tame animal (wolf, cat, parrot) you cannot hurt it by left-clicking. Instead, you trigger petting animation.

    I love this. It must be a feature that we can pet every pet animal. Please do it Mojang!

    I agree. I only end up hurting them and it makes me want to cry a bit.

    I think it’d be cool if we could pet any passive/neutral animal, too, and similar mobs like striders. Maybe it could be another way to keep phantoms away for a bit as well, that way you don’t have to sleep through a night (assuming the phantoms are like a hallucination caused by stress but made physical, and petting animals relieving stress).

    I have an idea, shifting and right clicking will start an animation, you will look down at your dog, the dog will close it's eyes. It will stop after a few seconds. It's the same with your cat, but if you shift and left click you will scrach it's chin.

    What if we also add playing fetch? like if you throw a stick or something certain tamed animals (like a dog) would grab it and drop it back in front of you as long as they are standing.

    Ahhh I just got an idea for this! They should make it so you can pet tamed llamas in a similar fashion to Monster Hunter as a small reference! That would be so cute :)
