Things We Saw Today: A Cat Named Spock Rescued by Pokémon GO
Imgur user Joelalmeidaptg shared a pretty adorable story about adopting an abandoned cat, which they only discovered because they were playing Pokémon GO. Their summary captures it better than I ever could: “Found a dying cat while playing Pokémon GO, saved him, he was ugly, turned out to be beautiful, I’m in love with him.” You can find the full story, along with pictures of the super-cute cat, on imgur.
