COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. -- Remember the lucky kitten that was rescued by a Collier sheriff's deputy after being hit by a semi in June? Well, he is all better and ready for a fur-ever home.

His name is Rusty Carver, in honor of Corporal Carver, who saved him.

When Rusty Carver was brought in, staff at Collier Domestic Animal Services performed surgery to reattach his lip.

They say he now has a cute little scar on his upper lip that he wears as a badge of honor.
