In the week or so since I last wrote, Archie’s vocalizations have slowly started to improve.  Chuck reports that he is quiet when I’m gone, and when I am home he makes mostly cute noises except when: a) I’m making high pitched noises (I mean, he has to join in! Amirite?), b) I first get home (he gets so excited!), and c) mid-afternoon, when he inexplicably feels like being loud.  But even then, I can encourage him to use quieter, cuter noises.  So…things are looking up!

He’s also back to looking forward to seeing Chuck, and thinking of him as a treat machine rather than a mortal enemy to be destroyed.  We haven’t tried one-on-one interaction yet, but I think in a few days we’ll be ready to give it a whirl.  Wish us luck!

In the meantime, here’s an adorable video of him in his favorite foraging toy.  And no, that’s not a typo: I did say “in” it.  He likes to take a nap in it, too.
