art the cat was hit by a car in Tampa, Florida on January 17 and thought to be dead by his owner in Florida. He was found in the street in a pool of blood and buried.
Five days later, he showed up in their neighbor's yard very much alive.
"I saw him with my own eyes. I know he was dead. He was cold and stiff," the neighbor told ABC News.
They took him to the vet after his "resurrection" (maybe they should have done this before burying him?) where he was treated for a broken jaw, open facial wounds and a ruined eye.
"We have seen many amazing cases at our full-service veterinary clinic," wrote the Humane Society of Tampa on its website. "But this situation may take the cake!"
A GoFundMe page was set up by the neighbor to raise money for Bart's medical costs.
The Humane Society posted an updated on his condition Tuesday on Facebook.
Bart The Miracle Cat has successful surgery! He was a brave boy and is now resting comfortably. He is spending the night with our good friends at Tampa Bay Veterinary Emergency Service so he can be monitored. He will return to us in the morning and need a week or so to recover before going back home!
