If you can put the parts in a room to dry and close the door so the cat can't get in a cause damage.

For now, while the paint is really wet, I'm going to close the door that divides the front and back halves of the house and put the cat back there with m brother until I get home from work. By then it'll be dry to the touch and I'll be able to put it somewhere less prone do damage.
However, looks like my luck is just staying aboard the shit train. Even though I cleared the nozzle after every coat, the nozzle is sucking hard and is dripping everywhere without putting out much spray. I think this is the last time I use Krylon, because you can't get a good finished project if the nozzle doesn't work right. The Rustoleum stuff I used on my HAF gave me zero issues and cost a dollar more.

Did you try putting the can in luke warm water for about 10-20 mins. This helps with paint coming out in blotches. Also try using a small piece of wire to clear the nozzle. Myself I hold the can upside and spray it till it comes out clear. I also picked up one of those plastic spray triggers from Crappy Tire, it helped me with putting even pressure on the nozzle.

I cleared the nozzle every time by spraying upside down, and I tried picking anything out of the nozzle with a small needle. I haven't tried putting it in water, but I guess it's worth a try.
As for the trigger, I have one from my previous project and gave up on it shortly after with this can. The nozzle sprays the paint horizontally and with a very wide spread, so the front part of the trigger was just getting soaked with paint and not letting much out.

Hopefully this works out for ya. I do a lot of painting on other things, I decided to get a HVLP gravity fed spray gun from Home Depot for $30.00 that I attach to my compressor and have switched to automotive paint. I would not recommend this if you do not have a compressor or do not do a lot of painting.

Ah, if only. As of now I'm done with the colour part even though I have a tiny part that is still kinda messed up. I need to find some Krylon Fusion clear coat now because the Wal Mart I got this from didn't have it and I have a feeling the stuff I have isn't going to work too well. (Mainly due to being a different brand and complete different purpose)

Yeah, I'm actually doing a test fit right now. No keys are sticking so I'm happy. I'll take a picture of it when I get it screwed together to make 100% sure.
