I’d give him time, really. Just let him come to you and provide lots of yummies. If you really want to talk ‘cat’ try slow blinking at him and yawning. Slow blinks are a sign of calm. If you have a long tongue you can try licking your nose too, but you’ll look pretty silly.

Did you try the slow blinking? I’m interested to see how this turns out.

I have a friend who apparently can make those hissing noises so well, our cat reacted the same way to her!!! But, he didn’t get close enough to actually touch her, just ears back, hissing, eyes huge, mouth open and making all kinds of noises. I’m thinking it just triggers that reaction, maybe tis threatening to them??

One thing I do know is that pets are quick to forgive something that doesn’t become a habit. Seems he has forgiven you. Our male did the same, our friend just won’t make those noises at him anymore, and he doesn’t seem to remember that she was the one who turned him into a demon for a few minutes!
