Take a quick pass through your home to Identify places where your cat can seek refuge. Let him or her explore and lounge under your bed or behind the sofa. Try clustering some cat safe plants together to create some cover. If you have a bookcase, try pulling the books towards the front of the shelf to leave room to hide behind them.
You can also drape a towel or blanket over an end or coffee table to create a ‘fort’ beneath. Another quick and easy idea? Whenever you receive a package, leave the box out for a few days.
As you begin to try a few things, start with high traffic areas. This will let you see if your cat is taking to the new hideout. The preferred low-traffic areas will still be there to fall back on if your cat is tentative about the new locations. If you opt to cover off on both at the same time, keep tabs on which type of area your cat likes best – high or low spaces? How about busier or quieter places in your home?
