A pair of kittens are safely on dry ground after they were rescued from an Alabama river by two fishermen.

Jason Frost and his friend Brandon Key were travelling on the Black Warrior River when they were surprised by the sight of two tiny kittens swimming towards them.

“We’re out here trying to fish, and there’s a damn cat swimming towards our boat ‘cuz some jackass probably put them out here,” Frost is heard saying in a video after the first feline was pulled from the water. (Watch above.)

According to the friends’ dialogue, a second kitten jumped into the lake from a nearby shore, treading water toward the boat. After that rescue, Key noticed that the two kittens are twins.

“There’s first time for anything, in’it?” Frost said.

He uploaded footage of the rescue to Facebook Saturday, quipping that the experience “puts a new spin on the term ‘catfishing.’”

A local animal rescue group wanted to help the twin kittens, now named Warrior and River, and donated vaccinations to keep the duo healthy.

I want to thank Debbie Cousins with Missing Link Rescue for donating the first and second round of shots for Warrior and River. Everyone please check out her site http://missinglinkrescue.org

“Everybody always has a crazy fishing story, and that's all it is, is a story,” Frost told AL.com. The Hueytown native said he was thankful he has footage of the rescue to show naysayers.

“If I wouldn’t have had this on video, everybody would have thought I was crazy,” he said.
