Pepe the Sphynx joined Ronaldo’s house two years ago. Thought to have been named after Ronaldo’s bald former Real Madrid teammate, the affectionate cat has become an integral part of the family.
Pepe was often featured in Ronaldo and his wife’s Instagram posts as he followed them virtually all over the world.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s cat involved in a terrible accident
Sadly, Pepe recently ran away from home and was hit by a car in Turin, just outside Cristiano Ronaldo’s house.
Ronaldo and his wife went out of their way to save the life of their beloved companion, keeping him in intensive care at the vet for over a month. A difficult and stressful time for the whole family.
Pepe the Sphynx cat on the road to recovery
Once Pepe was strong enough to return home, Ronaldo’s girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez decided to fly with him to Spain.
With Ronaldo’s children being so young, they didn’t understand that the cat was doing badly and needed a rest. The couple felt it was best for Pepe to stay with Rodriguez’s family, where he could take the time to fully recover, properly.
We wish the little kitty a recovery as soon as possible, and hope that he will soon be reunited with his family!
