Members of the Sacramento Fire Department used a boat to make their way to the animals, which had climbed into a tree in the center of the river. One cat leapt into the water as the rescuers approached, and they had to scoop it up using a net. The other was successfully pulled from the tree.
The cats were taken to a local shelter and city officials told ABC the cats were both in good condition. They will eventually be released back into the wild.
