Owner fights for ‘zombie cat’ custody

The furry four-legged creature has found himself in the middle of a battle between his owner and an animal shelter after he came back to life five days after he was hit by a car.

The one-year-old feline named Bart was buried following the accident but clawed his way out of the grave and returned to his home in Florida despite severe head trauma, a broken jaw and an injured eye.

However, Tampa Bay Humane Centre says the fluffy companion – who is recovering at an animal hospital – should not be allowed to return home because it is not a suitable environment for the puss.

In a statement, bosses said: “Recently we have learned new information about Bart’s home environment and the circumstances leading up to his burial.

“Therefore, the Humane Society of Tampa Bay does not intend to return Bart to the family.

“We are prepared to fight for the best interests of this cat.”
