Bruce Almighty has gone through hours of surgery to save his legs after being rescued.

The Regina Humane Society in Canada says it’s been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support it’s received for an abused cat who was found last week with his paws and legs bound in electrical tape. His rescuers named him Bruce Almighty for “his fierce determination and will to live.” The cat endured hours of surgery in an attempt to save his legs, and had eight toes removed. His story has gone viral, and a GoFundMe page created with a goal of raising $5,000 for his care has now brought in nearly $20,000 from more than 650 people in just five days. “Given the state he was found in nearly a week ago, his progress is very encouraging,” said the Regina Humane Society in a Facebook update Wednesday. They said Bruce Almighty even showed his caretakers he could walk, despite the large bandages on three of his legs. “He continues to eat and drink well, enjoys interacting with us throughout the day and of course takes his cat naps quite seriously.” — Get the latest from the Regina, Canada, Humane Society via Facebook
