Pokemon Go leads woman to injured kitten who needed help
Carey Burns likes to say she’s completed the quest to capture Mewtwo.
It was the infamous Pokemon Go app which, unless you've been living under a rock, has taken over the world.
“I had just downloaded ‘Pokemon Go’ and was figuring out what it was all about,” Burns told The Huffington Post, explaining that she was out in a parking lot near her apartment complex in Orlando, Florida. “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.”
Crying and obviously injured, the kitten clearly needed help.
“I just scooped her right up,” Burns said. “She didn’t fight me or anything, she just seemed scared and hurt.”
She named the kitten Mewtwo, after the legendary cat-like pokemon. Mewtwo was suffering from a fractured pelvis and dislocated hip, and was covered in bruises. She brought her to Candy’s Cats, an Orlando-based feline rescue group for her injuries.
They think she fell out of a tree, but no one is really sure.
The kitten is awaiting surgery, but in the meantime she isn't letting her injuries get in her way too much.
“She’s able to get around,” Burns said. “She can’t jump, and you can tell when she walks she’s a little wobbly.”
Though she’s is unable to keep Mewtwo permanently, Burns is helping Candy’s Cats find the kitten a loving home. Mewtwo is expected to fully recover, but in the meantime she needs a human who is “willing to take on an animal that needs a little more attention than a normal cat,” Burns said.
Burns is grateful that she started playing “Pokemon Go” when she did. Without the game, “I wouldn’t have even been outside, probably, at that time,” she said.
The kitten will find a loving home soon, all thanks to a Pokemon!
