Let me start by saying nothing was EVER said about Serj not being in a great home or not being loved or not getting attention..Nothing was said about punishment..And nothing was said about him not having a good life.And if you recall, I did mention putting up a gate, well actually making one while he is staying in the basement...All my answers were in regards to what was being posted by claire.
Yes Claire, breaking it down to the time frame you listed makes a difference...They way you first posted was telling me that you had just started to put him in the basement...
I like the name Serj...
