New Cat Owner from CA

I've finally got a cat after dwelling on the thought for some time. Yesterday, I rescued an all grey 2 year old male from the local rescue place called Hopalong.

He's very shy and has been under my bed since he came home. I've read all I can online on how to acclimate him to a new home and I'm hoping he'll eventually come out. My main concern is dehydration. His bowls are placed half under my bed with food and water, but he hasn't touched a thing since hiding.

The only thing I can do is to be patient and go about my routine. My questions would be to know how long should this go on before getting worried? Again, I don't want him to become dehydrated. He's a rather big boy (10 pounds) so I'm not too worried (yet) about him not eating right away.

I would also like to re-name him as well. =)
