'Dead' Cat Escapes from Grave After Being Mistakenly Buried

28 January 2015

ANALYSIS - It's a story that will warm the hearts of cat lovers. Bart the cat was hit by a car, pronounced dead and then buried by his owner, only to claw his way free five days later.

Bart who is thought to be between 2-3 years old was found by his owner after being hit by a car. The cat appeared to be lifeless and the owner buried him.

Five days later, Bart showed up in a neighbors garden after digging himself out of the grave and slowly making his way back home, albeit weak, dehydrated and in need of medical attention.

Bart is being treated at the Humane Society Tampa Bay (HSTB) for a broken jaw, open facial wounds and a badly damaged eye, which will have to be removed.

Thankfully, the injuries sustained were not more serious. HSTB veterinarians expect him to recover and be able to go back home.
