52-year-old Ellis Hutson of Tampa, Florida had a cat named Bart, who was hit by a car earlier this month. Ellis rushed him to the hospital, but it was too late, Bart was dead. So Ellis gave him a quick funeral and buried him.

Five days later, Bart showed up at the house alive, which means Bart is a zombie cat! That's the theory we like most, anyway.

The second best theory is that Bart was just unconscious after the accident, woke up underground after he'd been buried, dug his way out of the grave, and wandered back home.

Bart was busted up pretty bad from the accident, so to add to his zombie vibe, he had scratches on his face and a dead eye.

Vets are treating him now and say they expect him to survive, but he'll probably lose his eye. There's a GoFundMe set up to help pay for Bart's medical expenses.
