According to a February 11 post by the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, the owner of a Tampa cat has filed a lawsuit against HSTB for the return of the cat who “returned from the dead.” The post read
The HS updated the fans of Bart, who is currently in their loving hands that Bart is doing very well, eating and giving staff headbutts galore.
Not only has Ellis Wayne Hutson sued for custody, but the neighbor, Dusty Albritton, allegedly has collected more than $6,000 using GoFundMe for Bart’s medical expenses.
A petition has been started to put an end to collections on this GoFundMe page. Another page is said to have been started to pay the attorney fees for Huston, but that link isn’t working at the time of this article.
To date, Dusty hasn’t removed any of the money, and several people have asked for refunds after learning of the new circumstances of Bart not being returned to his former owner.
If you have donated toward this GoFundMe, consider whether you wish your money to remain as a donation, or you can put in for a refund.
