Usually when san comes home at 5, we spend the time together in the bedroom as my sisfur Akira would ask to be outside. We spend this time together just chilling as if not, san and I might not have any time together on a daily basis. After this time I would usually have to go to the computer room until my sisfur decides to go to the kitchen. Only then would I be allowed out. However sometimes even when san opens the baby gates, I decide to stay inside the computer room. Since I am given a choice, I usually make my own decisions. What is good is sometimes I stay less than two hours in there before I can be outside. As long as I stay out of the kitchen, both Akira and I get to be outside more. As there are always people in the kitchen, Akira does not mind being there at all.
