I feel the exact same way. We have a one bedroom apartment with a loft. The cats have taken over the whole apartment, but surprisingly they don't go up in the loft as much as I thought, which our roommate's bedroom. Our ceilings are quite high, maybe 18 feet, so the loft is about 9 feet off the ground. You would think they would love hanging out up there, looking down. But our bed is filled every evening with two kitties.

They have two litter boxes. They are spoiled brats.

Yes. I've always had 2 cats at a time and they've always had their cat room. It's a small bedroom with a cat tree, litterbox, food and water, toys and grooming supplies.

Of course they usually had the run of the house, but if there were contractors over, who might leave outside doors or windows open, or if there were dangerous chemicals or paint out, or guests with dogs, or whatever, it was a comfortable and safe refuge.

My two little ones have my son's old room. There is a twin bed and a chair. They spent their for two weeks with us in that room and we opened up the rest of the house slowly so they could get used to it. They are still too little and inquisitive to be roaming the house at night while we sleep so they are in their bedroom every night. As they get older I'm sure they will roam anywhere anytime, but they will always have a safe room with their beds, scratching post, litter box and toys. They often go into their room on their own to sleep so they are very comfortable in there.

pretty sure the whole apt is hers and I'm allowed to live here. She lets me sleep in my bed so I'm all good.

We only have 3 BRs. One is ours, one is hubby's study (he works from home sometimes) and one is supposed to be a guest BR. For 15 years I had it set up with a bed, dresser, etc., but it was hardly ever used - I considered it a waste of space. Several years ago I gave the bed to my adult son when he moved to Oregon and bought a high quality blow up queen bed which pretty much stays in the attic. The BR now is set up with 2 litter boxes, and a water bowl 24/7 and old outdoor chair cushions that act as comfy mats. We put them in there when we have dinner guests or parties. Not everyone likes 5 cats wandering around so we just put them in their room before the guests arrive (except our best friends - fellow cat lovers). The cats are none too happy about being up there, but they accept it just fine and just snooze until we let them out. The room is easily cleaned up and used as a nice guest bedroom again if needed - thankfully not too often because when that happens the litter boxes have to go in to the study or our BR. Not a fun option.
Other than that, our cats have the run of the house with access 24/7 to a screened in porch which they love all year round.

Cat owners' prayer: "Lord help me be the person my cat thinks I am"

My cats have the run of the house. We are lucky they let us live in it.

My cats have the spare bedroom as their room. Two litter boxes, food dishes, tower, scratching post and toys. I have a baby gate in the doorway with a small hole cut in it so the kitties can get in and out but the dogs can't. It's their sanctuary

I have a 3bedroom house so we have Humans room (master), Office/guest, and the cats playroom/moms storage.
In the cats playroom is cat boxes, food bowls, boxes (Izzy loves boxes), toys, and moms storage shelves(which cats use the bottom shelf lol) I use it to put them in when we have guests over that are louder and usually the cats get scared of being around.
