In the opening scene a baby-sitter hears a noise and goes to investigate. In the kitchen she encounters a cat at the back staircase leading upstairs. A screech is heard from the cat and then he is seen running from A to B away from the staircase and the baby-sitter. The trainer placed the cat on his mark and using a buzzer cued the cat from A to B. The sound of the screech was inserted in post-production.
