Hello all,

I have a 5 month old female Munchkin who seems to have made it her life's mission to destroy an area rug in my bedroom. I am a first time cat owner, I have only ever had dogs so I don't know if the way you would reprimand a dog would work on cats as well. I have tried the spray bottle but she is not fazed by water in the least. I yell at her and she runs away but as soon as I look away she is right back at it (that can go on all day). I've gotten to were I have to lock her out of the room and I hate that because she loves to sit on the windowsill looking out (the room has the best view).

Please help if you can! TY smile
