A cheeky cat shoved a turtle back into a pond off a rock, but was he helping?

While Anton Fiolkovskiy filmed some reptiles near his home in Sochi, Russia, a ginger and white cat was equally interested.

With one turtle stood on top of some decorative rocks, the curious feline wanted to get a closer look and started following it.

Moving closer and closer to the edge, the cat appears to give the turtle a little shove back into the water.

Anton said: “I was very surprised by what happened.

“I’m not sure if the cat was meant to be helping, but at least the turtle ended up back in the water.”
