    Sit down in or sit down on

    Hi! I usually tell my students 'Sit down IN your chairs' but I found that saying 'Sit down ON your chairs' is also accepted. Are they both correct??
    And what about saying 'The cat is IN the chair'?? Is that correct too?
    Thank you very much!

    I think that you sit IN a chair that has arms, and ON one that has no arms. And a cat will sit in, on, or under a chair - just as it pleases.
