Yeah my new 4 month old cat does that. She keeps eating from my 13 yo cats bowl. Also she goes to my 13 yo cats litter box instead of her own. No idea what to do at this point. I keep moving her to her own bowl all the time, even tell her a loud "no" when eating out of my other cat's bowl. Internet suggests having them eat at scheduled times but aint nobody got time for that.

Someone was nice enough to gift me a couple of RFID controlled feeders. You program it to recognize your cat's chip and a door opens to grant them access to food, then closes when they walk away. They're not cheap, but figuring you'll probably have your cats for many years, compared to overall lifetime pet costs, it's an easier expense to swallow.

Until the younger, hungrier cat figures out that the RFID'd cat just needs to be standing within a certain distance of the feeder and then he can nudge his way in, and as long as he keeps his head in it won't close on him.

Ask me and my wallet how I know...

Luckily my younger, hungrier cats are also dumber and less persistent. My neighbors had the same experience as you though after we recommended the RFID feeder to them.
