Hello! My DS will be attending VMI later this year. We live in Indiana, so we are approximately 9 hours away from Lexington. I've read on the forums that sometimes there are families that "adopt" a rat. How does this happen? I know that we may not be able to get there for every occasion we'd like to and that he may not be able to come home for every holiday (i.e. Easter). Just curious how this works and if we have to seek it out ourselves or if it's just something that happens. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
