17/11/12: Sheri and Pepe have now been in their forever home for almost a year, and this week lovely photos arrived from Germany. Both look fantastic! Sheri has grown up into a very beautiful lady, and remains the quieter of the 2, liking cuddles. Pepe is full of energy and is a little dare-devil! I love the photo of him on his Dad’s head. He likes to sleep in ‘strange’ places and has definitely remained the confident little character cat that Jenny knew so well here.

21/12/11: Sheri and Pepe have been together in a foster home in Germany, since the transport almost 3 weeks ago. Today I had great news from Anke: “Sheri and Pepe have a new home in Frankfurt. Beautiful young people from Mazedonia and Portugal.”
27/11/11: This gorgeous pair have been having a lovely playful time at Tracey and Kev’s for November, and will be on the transport to Germany this Friday 02.12. They were actually supposed to be going to an adoptant who had been waiting for them for some weeks, but things have changed this week, unfortunately for our 2 (who have lost this lovely home), but very fortunately for 2 older FiV cats. Maxi and Haver had to leave their foster home urgently when their foster Mum was taken into hospital, and Pepe and Sheri’s ‘adoptants’ kindly took them in for a few weeks, and have now completely fallen in love with them. This overall is great as older FiV cats are hard to find homes for and I am sure Sheri and Pepe will find a new family soon. In the meantime they will be off together to a lovely foster home. For now enjoy some newer photos taken by Tracey a couple of weeks ago. Kev has described Pepe as ‘the most lovely little cat he has ever fostered’, and of course Sheri is very sweet too!!
01/10/11: I visited Sheri and Pepe last night and all is very well. Sheri seems to be gaining in confidence every day and now happily comes for cuddles to everyone. They have a nice bedroom and ensuite bathroom to chill out in, and for a lot of the day the freedom of the most of Miriam’s apartment. Both are still eating well and growing fast. They are also very firm friends, so I am coming round to thinking that Sheri should wait and travel to Germany early December with her little toyboy! Now I just need to find them a foster home for November!
26/09/11: Today Sheri was re-united with Miriam her rescuer who has just flown back to Spain. She is now taking a turn at looking after this lovable pair, as Jenny’s own cat Sita ( not the most sociable) has virtually left home, and recently made it VERY clear that she has had enough of their scent around HER home!! Miriam was very pleased to see little Sheri looking so much bigger and fatter, and thought her new friend Pepe was adorable, as we all do. Jenny and I left them exploring their new surroundings! They will be missed by Jenny and her little grandaughter Olivia, but not by Sita AND Mitzi!!!
16/09/11: Time I introduced you to our current smallest foster kitten Pepe, and his friend Sheri, both found in gardens in Almerimar. Since we have re-homed most of the port cats, some people are starting to say that there are maybe no longer cats needing our help here, but Almerimar is much bigger than 3 darsenas, and there are a lot of stray and abandoned animals still out there. Sheri was found by an English lady Miriam in the deserted walled garden next to hers. She heard her crying and on climbing over, found a very afraid, friendly little scrap of a kitten. I like to think that whoever left her there knew that Miriam already fed other cats, and would help her, but I’m not convinced. She is very lucky that Miriam delayed her flight back to the UK by a week.
Her even smaller friend was found by a Spanish man, who knows us from the Mercadona. He appeared in his garden at about only 3 weeks old. Sheri is about 2 months, and Pepe 6 weeks now. Both are doing very well at Jenny’s, where they have been feasting on fresh chicken and fish! and have put on weight nicely. When I saw them yesterday they were busy exploring her big basement room as well as their more usual home, the conservatory. They play happily together as, although Sheri is bigger, Pepe the boy is more feisty! Sheri is the more loving and needy of human contact. Pepe, although more confident with new people, is quite an independent little chap. I’m not sure if they will be homed together as Sheri will be ready to travel to Germany much sooner, but wherever they are homed, we will make sure they both have a little friend to play with.
Sweet Little Sheri
