How Pokemon Go helped save a kitten's life
On a particularly hot day last summer, a man was walking down the street playing Pokémon Go when he heard a kitten crying for help from behind a nearby electrical post.
“As I was passing by an electricity post I heard what I thought it was a bird. But I found it very strange since I could not see any bird and besides that it should be way too hot for a bird to be chirping around. So I went back and investigated.
What I found was a kitty crying for help. It had his head stuck in the junction between the top side and the bottom side of the post. It was hanging only by his head. We have no idea how the hell did it get in that situation.
It must have been there for a long time, since it barely had energy to cry. Its mouth was open wide, it did not close it. I only knew it was alive by its cry for help,” imgur user joelalmeidaptg shared.
He decided to call his parents and then the local fire department to help free the kitten.
A perimeter was formed and a number of different techniques were tried to create enough space for the cat to escape. The police came, and according to joelalmeidaptg even a representative from the utility company responsible for the junction box.
After hours and hours of trying to free the kitten, they were finally successful.
The kitten was taken home by joelalmeidaptg and his family helped nurse the cat back to health. He was covered in fleas and hissed everytime they tried to touch him.
But in time, Spock learned to trust his new family.
After a few months in their care, Spock has grown so big and healthy!
Thanks to Pokémon Go and the help of the community, this kitty’s life was saved and he’s incredibly grateful to be in his new home!
