‘Pokemon Go’ Helps Woman Rescue Injured Kitten
Lifestyle| | By Mauricio Castillo
We have been hearing a lot of crazy stories regarding Pokemon Go since its release a few weeks ago.
Carey Burns’ story isn’t so much crazy as it is one of those that just makes you smile.
“I had just downloaded Pokemon Go and was figuring out what it was all about,” Burns told the Huffington Post. “I heard this noise, it sounded almost like a bird. … I followed the noise and there was this little kitten sitting there on the ground, and her leg was out at a weird angle.”
The kitten, which Burns has now affectionally called “Mewtwo,” after one of the legendary Pokemon, did not fight when Burns scooped her up, a sure sign that it needed help.
After contacting Candy’s Cats, an Orlando-based animal rescue group that specializes in cats, she learned that Mewtwo was suffering from bruises, a fractured pelvis, and a dislocated hip. Burns and the group came to an agreement: she would provide a home for Mewtwo while the group found a new, permanent home for the kitten.
“I wouldn’t have even been outside, probably, at that time,” Burns said to HuffPost, crediting downloading and playing Pokemon Go for her rescue of Mewtwo.
You never know when trying to catching ’em all might lead to a feel-good story like this one.
