Marine Deputy Michael Libasci proved himself a true Homer's Hero last week, saving a tiny, drowning kitten from certain doom.
A caller in Stuart, Florida alerted the Martin County Sheriff's Marine Unit to cries coming from the Roosevelt Bridge. Libasci discovered a small black kitten, clinging to oysters beneath the bridge's piling as the water tried to sweep him out to sea. "The kitten was worn out and struggling to stay afloat," Martin County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) wrote on Facebook. Deputy Libasci saved the wee blackie, and brought him to the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast, where the little guy was named "Roosevelt," after the bridge. Roosevelt is now thriving in foster care, and will be ready for his forever home soon!
