As mentioned on the phone, Timex is holding his own - not always thrilled to see me walk in the door, giving me the welcoming hiss. But when I talk to him and ask him if he'd like a little lunch, he seems to calm down. Last time he got over this after a few days and was even out in the kitchen watching me prepare his meal without complaint. However, I'm not sure he will be as sociable this time since he's not seeing me everyday.. we'll see. Have left him plenty of extra dry food and treats to munch on between visits as well as an extra bowl of water - because he's drinking a fair amount everyday and the fountain gets rather low and noisy by my next visit. Only found (1) incident of a hairball this time and no vomiting in his bowls or around the apt. Hooray! More soon!
