Michael has found friendship in a pet rodent. What's makes it different is the way he describes this situation. He feels as if no one else would accept such a good view of his friendship with this rat, but he gives a little more detail on it too. He thinks he can interpret the thoughts of the rat, and proclaims " You feel, you're not wanted anywhere". He then comforts the rat, and says: " There's something you should know, you've got a place to go". He views them as best friends and doesn't care what other people think. He wishes they would give the rat a second thought, because maybe they would see he really is a good friend..
