This one is surely destined to join the canon of ‘classic headlines’.
Bart, the Tampa Bay, Florida house cat (pictured above), was recently discovered lying in the road, stiff, in a pool of blood. His owner, Ellis Hutson, was so traumatised by Bart’s death that he could not face burying him; Ellis asked a neighbour, Dave, to dig Bart a shallow grave & give him a decent burial. Five days later, another of Ellis’s neighbours, Dusty Albritton, discovered Bart meowing for food. Ellis took Bart to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay (no fees).
Yesterday (Tuesday 27 January 2015) the Humane Society announced on it’s Facebook page that they had removed Bart’s ruined eye and treated his broken jaw, and that he was now resting comfortably.
No information is available on the state of the car that Bart vandalised, or it’s owner.
