Don’t let Cassius’ rugged appearance fool you. Deep down he is a lover boy.

Seven-year-old Cassius looked like he had many stories to tell about his life on the streets when he arrived at Responsible Pet Care. He had some scratches and notches in his ears. He is the complete opposite of what you might expect.
Cassius loves to get visitors. If they stop to say hello and rub his head he rolls over and closes his eyes to enjoy the love. He will love being cared for in his forever home.
If you like big cats with soft hearts, then you should visit Cassius. He’ll be at Responsible Pet Care waiting to have his head rubbed.
