Rearranging enclosure and cham's reaction

Hi all, just wondering how often you rearrange your chameleon's enclosure and when you do, how they react? I just did this for the first time while I was cleaning (he was out of the cage). I only made minor adjustments such as turning the ficus and trimming it back since it was overgrowing one of his routes and he was always slipping on the leaves. I also added one branch at the bottom to give hime another horizontal path. When I put him back in he noticed the spot I'd trimmed back and started gaping. He's also doing a lot of "branch tasting" and seems a bit upset which I guess I expected since they're territorial. Just curious how other chams react and how soon they get over it.
