Watch a Fisherman Catch and Rescue Two Kittens Swimming in River

The term cat fishing became quite literal in this latest excursion.

Jason Frost and Brandon Key are two life long friends who decided to go fishing one Saturday morning on Warrior River in Alabama. While fishing, Frost had heard a splashing in the water, figuring it was a very excited fish; however, he got a little more than expected.

Frost looked to see what was going on and heard a meow and saw a kitten just swimming along near the boat. Being the upstanding citizen he is, Frost grabbed the kitten and helped it to safety, just to realize there were in fact two stranded kittens swimming in the river.

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"

Needless to say, we could see why the pair were stunned. Who knew cats could swim! The video has gained a lot of traction since its upload and quickly went viral to the tune of over one million views!

Bet you want to look at some cute pics of cats now, are we right?
