This Cat is the Cynosure of this Tortoise

Cynosure is defined as “a person or thing that is the center of attention or admiration.”  The noun has its origins from the Greek word kunosoura, meaning ‘dog’s tail’.

This tortoise certainly has his sights on Fred the cat in this cute video.  The tortoise persistently headbuts this rather large orange tabby.  Even when Fred the cat repeatedly moves, the tortoise doesn’t give up, slowly lumbering over to the cat’s new position to resume his headbutting in what is probably an attempt to show dominance or perhaps to mate with the cat.
