I sit at one end of the three seater settee. It's considered to be the best seat in the house, and I' can usually get to sit in it now son has gone back to Uni. I do have to turf Bess out, and she then goes to sit the other end. OH usually sits on the two seater where he has his xbox set up. He rarely watches TV nowadays. We both like Downton Abbey, so he tries to sit on 'Bess's end' of the 3seater. Which, I may add, she wasn't sitting on at the time, but lying comfortably on the floor. Well, if you've never seen a filthy look from an IS you've not seen one at all. She jumps up, and tries to scoop him off with her paw. She then turns to me as if to say 'that's my seat!' Then she jumps on him. I did suggest he goes to sit in her unused Tuffte bed, but OH scooped her up and evicted her from the room. OH 1, Bess 0. I do think Bess is getting ideas above her station!
