We share our home and living spaces! This means we can interact as often as we are both home. If you prefer to spend time on your own, I am respectful of that. Your room is always quiet and at times other spaces in the house are free.
My son with special needs does not understand how to respect other people's personal space. If you do not want interactions between yourself/ your pet and my son, then you may need to spend the time in your bedroom as I don't restrict him from interacting.
