When Jason Frost and Brandon Key set out to do some rod fishing in the Warrior River in Alabama, they expected to catch a few big ones, but what they caught instead had them staring at each other in disbelief.
Far off in the distance, the heard a tiny splash and noticed that something was making it’s way from the island towards their boat.
At first, they weren’t sure what it could be. As it came closer, they couldn’t believe their eyes. In the water, swimming at full speed was a tiny, orange kitten.
Frost reached down and scooped the soaking baby from the river. Then, Key pans his camera towards the island and a second form can be seen swimming towards their ship. As it draws nearer, you can hear his tiny mews, “wait for me! take me too!” he seems to say.
Although it’s uncertain what the kittens were doing on that island, Frost suspects that someone had abandoned them there.
When the friends returned to shore, they found a young family who was willing to take them in and give them a forever home.
The fearless kittens got their happily ever after and the fishermen got the best fish tale they’ll ever tell!
Watch the adorable rescue here:
I really don’t know how to describe this video, but the Warrior River never fails to surprise me……this puts a new spin on the term “catfishing”
