Cat Who Was Buried Alive Finally Gets a Home

Nearly two years ago, Bart the “Zombie Cat” dug himself out of a grave where he’d been buried for five days and seemingly came back from the dead. The cat had been hit by a car and was mistakenly presumed dead by his owners. The owners took the severely injured cat to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, and the staff there argued he shouldn’t return to his former home. That led to a 20-month legal battle between the original owner and the Humane Society for custody of Bart. Now, the case has finally been settled out of court, and the shelter was able to keep the cat and adopt him out. On Wednesday, the now-healthy cat moved into his forever home with the Humane Society employee who’d been fostering him. — Read it from the Humane Society of Tampa Bay
