Our cats afraid of my husband

Hi, my sister moved in with her cat Bosco. She seems to be getting along well enough with my other two cats but is extremely afraid of my husband. Is there anything we can do to make her more comfortable?

You could try and get your husband to interact with her more in a non threatening manner. tell him to get down on the floor so that he doesn't appear to be such a big figure. tell him not to try and touch the cat but to play with a ball or string with them. he can also offer treats at a distance from him and grandually get them nearer and nearer to him over days. He also shouldn't look her directly in the eyes while he is down on the floor. Eventually the cat will become less afraid of him and will feel happier to approach him.
