Miracle Cat in Recovery After Rising From His Grave
Who hasn’t wished that their recently passed away pet would come back to life? A Tampa woman actually had that wish come true as her cat rose from the dead five days after being buried.
Bart the Miracle Cat, as he came to be known after his apparent resurrection, was hit by a car on January 15. When the owner found the two to three year-old, he was bloodied and his body was stiff so she assumed the worst and buried him in her backyard. Five days later, however, Bart showed up at the neighbor’s house after digging his way out of his grave.
As it turns out, he wasn’t dead but just very injured with a broken jaw, damaged eye and severely dehydrated. The owner tried to get Bart medical assistance but couldn’t afford it so the Humane Society of Tampa Bay took him in to take care of him.
Last Tuesday, he had surgery for his broken jaw and had his hurt eye removed. Now he’s resting comfortably and is on his way to recovery.
Of course all of those medical bills add up so the owner start a GoFundMe page and so far has gotten over $4,500.
We’ve all heard stories about animals that have survived accidents and pretty horrible odds and had another shot at a happy life but this might just be the first to actually rise from the dead for it.
