Default When should a new cat be let out of a room ?


A friend of mine has adopted an ex-feral cat and
she's now keeping him in a small room in her house.
He's still hissing at her when she enters the room
and she's worried that if she lets him out of that
room he will run away when somebody opens the front
or back door of her house. But I think that he may
be unhappy being kept in a small room by himself
most of the time.

Any suggestion will be appreciated.

How long has the cat been in the room? I'm not familiar
with adopting ferals, but usually, keeping the cat in
a small room where it's quiet and s/he can feel safe is
a good thing.

I think it's been about a week and he probably feels safe
in that room but he may also want to come out when nobody
is watching.

He's the only cat in the house and I don't know if this is
good for an ex-feral cat that's going to be kept indoor.
