What is the Best Way to ‘Call’ My Cat to Encourage it Home at Night?
It is advisable to establish a signal other than just a name call from the earliest days of owning a cat. This signal - which could be the sound of a tinkling bell, a spoon tapped on a food dish or even a whistle - would precede any name call. Once a cat strongly associates with this sound, usually after a week or so, it can be used to recall the cat if it should ever wander off or become lost. The simple sound, used repeatedly, will carry further into the night air and is not as complicated as a name call.
