Sorry for being such a PW, I just have a lot of questions and I don't want to screw this up!
If you read my post this morning about Sherlock, you know already that he's very curious and already very comfortable with us! I would like to let him start exploring other areas of the house soon since he's so good, but I am still a little weary of letting him have full reign of the house when we aren't home. Is it okay for us to let him explore the rest of the house while we're home and put him back in his safe room at night and when we're at work? Please keep in mind his safe room is the entire basement and that it's about 700 square feet.
I feel confident that it won't take him too long to know that the curtains are not playthings and the furniture is not for scratching and we'll be able to leave him for the workday alone... but I'm wondering if it's cruel to show him the awesomeness of the rest of the house and then put him in the basement for a lot of his day.
I've read online that it's okay to do so, but I wanted to hear from you all.
