Let your cat make the first move – Now that your cat has his own safe area in your house, the next thing to do is to let him wander around your house. Try not to force him to interact with you. Instead, let him make his first move.

Friends play together – As soon as you think that your cat is feeling comfortable and doesn’t mind having you around, figure out which one is his favorite toys and play with your cat.
