What’s Your Problem? Tortoise Head Butts Cat

No one gets hurt in this one-sided war in which the tortoise is the aggressor. A cat is minding his own business when a tortoise decides to repeatedly head butt him. The cat is annoyed and moves, but his antagonist is not easily discouraged, and pursues the cat with a single-minded tenacity that will be as puzzling to you as it is to the cat. Just try not to laugh.

  1. This is not a TURTLE which lives in water. This is a TORTOISE and lives on land. I had one that used to play with my cat like that and the cat used to pat him back so he’d retreat into his shell. I still have the tortoise’s shell as my mother had it treated when he died at 17 years old.

  2. Hi: Thanks for that. That was a stupid mistake. It is very important to distinguish between a turtle and a tortoise. I will not make that mistake again. I love both tortoises and turtles.

  3. You are right! Sorry. I won’t make that mistake again. I also changed references in the article where I could. I love turtles. And tortoises.
