Create a routine upon your arrival home. When you enter the house, ring the bell three times. This distinguishes you from others who would ring the bell once. The cat will identify the three rings with your arrival, a subtle way of establishing a routine. This makes the cat aware that it is you and it will feel safe.
Upon entering the house, call out the cat's name in a gentle voice. Pay particular attention to the tone and pitch of your voice. The cat responds to your soothing tone. A high-pitched voice may be threatening to a cat. These two simple acts establish a predictable safe routine.
