There’s always a risk of seeing some strange and dangerous wildlife when you head out onto the river for a fishing trip.
One of the best parts of being on the water is seeing the vast array of animals that call the water and its surroundings home. When these two men went out for a fishing trip on the Warrior River in Alabama, they were not prepared for what they saw.
In the video below, you’ll see two fisherman inside their boat in the middle of the river. They explain that they’ve spotted a kitten swimming out in the middle of the water toward their boat. You can hear its tiny cries as it makes its way toward them. It’s finally scooped up to safety. The man behind the camera says he spotted another kitten who jumped into the water nearby, but it’s too far away to tell if it’s indeed another scared feline.
Sure enough, just a few moments later, another kitten begins to swim towards the boat. When the fishermen retrieve it from the water, they realize this new kitten is identical to the first. It’s clear to the men that the siblings were abandoned in the river. Thankfully, there’s a happy ending to this story. A family in town adopted the two kittens after they heard about their incredible story.
