So a bit of background, my cat is spoiled and eats twice a day at 5am when my bf gets up for work and at 5pm when we eat dinner. She has been on this exact routine her whole life and is usually pretty patient when it comes to her feeding time. Over the last few months my cat has decided she would like to eat earlier; it started with weekends, when my bf would sleep in, and she would get up on our nightstand and knock things over till someone eventually woke up. We tried to ignore her but she would keep doing it until she ran out of things on our nightstand. We figured it would just be easier to feed her on time and moved on. This was a terrible mistake, because now she does it every day of the week and it has gone from 5am to 4am to now 1:30-2am. We tried spraying her with water but now its become a game of how fast she can outrun the spray bottle. We tried covering our nightstand in tin foil but now she has moved to our altar and is knocking over valuable things, and i am NOT going to cover my altar in tin foil. Obviously i cannot do anything that makes noise because my boyfriend needs to sleep for work (not that it would work anyway noise doesnt bother her) and im hesitant to use furniture deterrent sprays as i dont want them to harm the things on our altar. I should also mention we cant close our bedroom door because 1 her litter box is in here, and 2 if we close it she paws the door and it shakes the hinges of our shitty apartment making a ton of noise. We havent slept in weeks so hopefully someone here can help us.
