It’s well known human beings and other organisms have a built-in survival instinct.
This physiological response to outside threats is what has enabled species throughout history to thrive and evolve.
It’s also what kept a cat in Florida from meeting his untimely demise.
Last week, the world learned about Bart the cat, a feline in Tampa that was seemingly resurrected from the dead a lá Stephen King’s Pet Sematary.
After finding him struck by a car, Bart’s owner unwittingly buried him alive.
“The cat appeared to be lifeless and the owner buried him. Five days later, the cat showed up in a neighbors yard, alive!” a representative with the Humane Society of Tampa Bay explained.
“He had dug himself out of the grave and slowly made his way back home, albeit in weak, dehydrated and in need of medical attention.”
Photos taken by the Humane Society show the grisly aftermath of Bart’s injuries. The left side of his face was badly mangled. He suffered a broken jaw and lost an eye.
But despite all this, Bart’s recovering nicely, proving how the instinct to live is exponentially more powerful than the will to die.
It’s this very same instinct to thrive and persevere in the face of adversity that creates true Infowarriors.
Long has the public been buried under dirt of government corruption, to the point that many have accepted their fate and lay under the layers of lies awaiting death.
But those that seek the truth are the ones that have clawed their way out of their own graves, refusing to accept death despite a never-ending onslaught of government malfeasance.
Bart’s story is about more than just a cat coming back from the dead; it’s a model for humanity and an object lesson in the primitive survival instinct.
