Rod usually has his own spots that are specifically designated as his. He prefers corners up against things. The corner of the bed so he can sleep against me, the corner of the sofa against the arm, etc. Seldom does he steal someone else's spot - he is very considerate and polite. I personally sit in the exact same spot so often that my butt has made a dent in the sofa...yes, I know that sounds disgusting. I am not 1,000 pounds. Rod sinks into this dent quite nicely and boy does he look comfy cozy. He looks like a monorail Rod. This dent was made for a Rod!
