My year old Cat has always been very nervous. She has chosen to stay in regardless of giving her the opportunity to go out. Recently she has been spending short amounts of time outside the front of the house but never goes far. Recently we have noticed other cats in the area. For the last few days our cat hisses at us as soon as we open the door and sometimes it takes a while to get through the front door. I would like her to spend more time outside to be able to have a change of scenery and get used to the outside world. How can I stop her hissing at the family and gradually introduce her to the outside world in the daytime?
