Is this pet cat actually able to detect Pokemon GO characters?
Pokémon GO is a worldwide phenomenon, with millions of people every day looking for and capturing the characters of the popular Japanese media franchise. And apparently, it's not only people that can see the Pokémon. A Twitter user uploaded some photos of his cat following a virtual monster, except the cat's not even looking at a smartphone!
Cats are known to have extraordinary senses, especially when it comes to sight, smell, hearing, and even touch, which may explain some photos that have recently gone viral. A Twitter user in Japan with the handle @masalai6 uploaded some crazy shots of his pet cat following Goldeen, a goldfish Pokémon, and you just have to look at the photos to see what the big deal is. The cat is literally staring at a virtual fish that's only visible on his owner's phone! I have no idea if the cat's magical senses are kicking in here, but something is definitely captivating the curious cat. Cats do love fish, after all. He's actually staring!
Despite being uploaded only three days ago, the photos have been retweeted over 150,000 times and liked 160,000. For the foreseeable future, it looks like there will always be something to talk about when it comes to Pokémon GO.
