Maybe not so much. I can't speak for cats, since I'm new to them, but I grew up with my dog having his own side of the bed. It was like that for about 9 years. When I went away to college though, he didn't want to sleep alone, so he went over and slept with my mother and took up my father's side of the bed for the hours until he'd go to bed.
When my father goes to bed, the dog gets up and goes directly inbetween the two of them under the covers and LOVES snuggling up against both of them at the same time.
Again - this is a dog I'm speaking of, not a cat, so there's no guarantee that your situation will be similar.
PS: He likes sleeping inbetween my mother and father so much these days that when I came back from college to live at home again until law school (saving a little money since law school costs uber-bucks), the dog had no desire to sleep with me when my mother and father are home. He's ALL ABOUT sleeping inbetween them now. The only time he comes to sleep in my bed is when the two of them are on vacation.
