Bart the Zombie Cat

Post by Jamboree on 5th June 2015, 02:58

A cat in Florida has had surgery after apparently clawing its way out of his grave following a collision with a car.

Bart was discovered by its owner's neighbour in Tampa five days after he was found lying in the road stiff in a pool of blood, and was presumed dead.

He is now recovering after treatment for a broken jaw and ruptured eye.

The Humane Society of Tampa Bay, which is caring for the animal they have dubbed "Bart the Miracle Cat", say they have never seen a case like it.

Bart's owner, Ellis Hutson, told the Tampa Bay Times he "couldn't stand" to bury the animal and asked his neighbour Dave to dig him a shallow grave.

Hungry and dishevelled

Five days later, bedraggled Bart was found meowing for food by another of Mr Hutson's neighbours, Dusty Albritton.

"At first it blew me away", Ms Albritton said. "All I knew was this cat was dead and 'Pet Sematary' is real," she added, referring to the horror film and book by US writer Stephen King.

A shocked but delighted Mr Hutson, discovering that vets' bills would be too expensive, took Bart to Tampa's Humane Society.

Bart had surgery on Tuesday night to remove his ruined eye and treat his broken jaw, and is now resting comfortably according to the society's Facebook page.

Hmmm ... I'm inclined to favour the Humane Society's part in that story.
