According to the British newspaper, The Guardian, www.Guardian.co.uk, Tommaso, a four-year-old, may very well now be the world's richest cat.
The one-time stray from Rome, was left over $10 million dollars from his owner with the proviso to her attorneys that they find an animal welfare body or association to which to leave the inheritance and the task of looking after the cat.
Under Italian law, animals cannot inherit directly money or assets. But they can be beneficiaries if a suitable trustee is found.
I do not think that there will be any scarcity of volunteers to be the trustee.
