A National Guardsman who made friends with a stray cat in Afghanistan has raised enough money to bring the feline home to Delaware.

The News Journal in Wilmington reported Wednesday that  Dan Brissey had hoped to raise $3,000 to cover the costs of bringing the cat to the U.S.

He raised $8,000 in two days.

Brissey is serving his fourth overseas tour with the National Guard. The 50-year-old is stationed in Kabul. He was working as an engineer at a construction site when he noticed the orange kitten.

The kitten is currently being cared for at Afghanistan's only animal rescue. Extra money that was raised for Sully's transport will help the clinic and transportation for other military pets.
