Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo’s Sphynx cat escaped from their home in Italy and was struck by a car – but is on the road to recovery after getting rushed by private jet to a top animal clinic.
The wrinkly Pepe, who was run over in Turin, was flown to Madrid to continue his recovery after being treated in a local vet’s intensive care unit, The Sun reported.
“Pepe has given us a terrible scare. It escaped from home and was run over,” Ronaldo’s stunning gal pal Georgina Rodriguez told the InStyle España.
“It was close to death and after a month and a half in intensive care at the vet’s, we’ve decided my sister Ivana should look after it. Pepe’s now in Spain recovering,” she said.
“Now he’s in the best hands,” Rodriguez added.
