Again, I shake my head over the nasty cruelty of "humans" (they don't even deserve that title!) HOW can anyone leave an animal without even a bit of food? You're right; it's amazing that he trusted you after what was done to him. Thank you thank you thank you for adopting him and being his entire life! You and your friend are absolute ANGELS of the highest order. Enjoy your life with James, and James, enjoy your special day today.
Your friend in Connecticut.
