SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — One lucky kitten owes its nine lives to a man in Cottage Park after he saved it from floodwaters on Sunday.

Skip Cambell jumped to action outside his home when his wife heard a commotion outside.

“My wife had heard a faint noise,” Cambell said. “Looked over and saw a little head bobbing up.”

The kitten was caught in floodwaters and struggled to keep its head above the torrent.

“It was about waist-high. And I was just real careful, because it does drop off about three feet away from where I’m at,” Cambell said. “And that’s where it drops into the creek bed.”
