Bart’s journey to his survival is nothing short of a miracle. He was found after being hit by a car, presumed dead and was later buried. Five days later, the cat showed up in a neighbor’s yard, alive!




He had dug himself out of the grave and slowly made his way back home, albeit weak, dehydrated and in need of medical attention.




Bart was brought to Humane Society Tampa Bay’s Animal Health Center where staff quickly began treating him for a broken jaw, open facial wounds and an eye that wasn’t salvageable , but HSTB veterinarians expected him to recover.




A few days after Bart surprised everyone by taking his first bites of food. That was a great sign of his recovery.

Day by day, miracle cat Bart continued to improve. A week after Bart was taken in, he got up and walked to the door to greet the staff with chirps and meows.




His appetite came back and he was interested in eating again. He made everyone very proud that day. He was such a champ!
A couple of weeks later, Bart was using his litter box like a pro and making great strides in his recovery,lounging in sunbeams and enjoying attention and affection from volunteers and staff.





“He is a courageous, friendly, silly and affectionate kitty who greets us each day with happy enthusiasm.” HSTB wrote.
The miracle cat now weighs twice as much as he did when he was first rescued.
