When my male felix(outside cat) was neutered he got to be in my room with me for 4 days. He was asleep in the floor and I was bored and turned on my TV. He awoke stared at it about 4 seconds and ran under my bed and hid there untill I turned it off. I tried no volume and I tried volume with the sceen turned off(contrast and brightness on lowest setting).I tried tapping the screen to show him it wasnt a person and I let him smell it. He still was scared. unless it was completely off, he hid. Oh and he's not afraid of my computer...he's jealous of it and layed on my hands while typing...anyway I thought this was odd but that maybe it had something to do with him not feeling good after the neuter. Then 2 days ago I tried it again and he took of out of my room(this time door was open). I'm not sure if this is normal behavior or what to do about it. I am moving and he is gonna be an inside cat....I dont want him scared and hiding just because of the TV. Anyone have any ideas so he doesnt have to hide???
