Two Alabama fishermen on the Warrior River were stunned when they realized what was swimming toward their bass boat: kittens. One by one they swam for the boat hoping for a rescue.
Jason Frost of Hueytown and his friend Brandon Key came across the amazing sight in an undeveloped area near Bluff Creek, according to AL.com.
Little did the fishermen know on this day they'd be catfishing in the literal sense. Fortunately, Frost took video of the crazy kitten caper:
"Never in my life have I seen anything like that," Jason Frost says on the video.
An orange tabby perhaps a few months old made the swim from shore to the boat where Frost plucked it out of the water by the nape of its neck and put it onto the deck of the boat. It began meowing.
Then they noticed a second kitten, a twin, swimming toward them.
"If I wouldn't have had this on video, everybody would have thought I was crazy," Frost told AL.com. "Well there's a first time for everything, isn't there?"
Getting odd looks from other fishermen was no doubt a first, too.
"People were looking at us out on the water like, 'Oh my God, these people got cats with them,'" Frost told AL.com.
Since there are no homes in the area, Frost suspected that somebody simply dumped the kittens on the shore to fend for themselves.
Thankfully, the story has a happy ending. Once they got to shore, the fishermen saw a family with two little girls who each wanted a kitten. They got their wish, and now the kittens have a new, safe home.
