People don’t know what to do with their money these days. I mean I’ve heard of people leaving their inheritance to their pets before but this woman takes this to an all new high. Billions of people wake up each morning without something to eat or somewhere to live and this is the type of thing that people choose to do with their money.
The cat nipped to the top of the feline rich list after inheriting nearly £10MILLION. But this is the part that blows my mind: the Italian moggy is still only the THIRD richest animal in the world. Tommasino’s wealthy owner Maria Assunta died and left him the entire family fortune. (The reason you couldn’t have thrown the money to the US to help ease the national debt is because? Oh yes, that’s right. The US government is more concerned with interfering with restricting aid to foreign countries and playing bully to conform to their views. I wonder where that foreign aid money is even coming from but anyways…)
Maria rescued him as a stray and could think of no one better to leave her portfolio of property to after she died last month aged 94 with no living relatives. It means the cat is the proud owner of homes and villas across Italy as well as stocks and swollen bank accounts. (Seriously though, she should’ve looked up my name when she was deciding to do her will. I would’ve gladly helped her out with her “conflicting” situation on who to leave her fortune to.) Her lawyers, Anna Orecchioni and Giacinto Canzona, say she left the fortune to Tommasino in a will she wrote and deposited with them at their office in Rome in 2009. Mrs Orecchioni explained that under Italian law Tommasino is not entitled to inherit the money directly so it was ultimately entrusted to Maria’s nurse, Stefania. Mrs Orecchioni said: “In the end we decided that Stefania was the most suitable person to administer the money that Maria had left in her will. “To be honest he doesn’t need all that money. He is happy with a saucer of milk and some biscuits.” (He doesn’t need any type of money! How’s he going to spend it?!) Stefania said: “I had no idea that she was worth so much.”
The world’s richest animal is believed to be Gunter, a German shepherd who was left more than £90million by his wealthy heiress owner Karlotta Liebenstien. In 1988, British recluse Ben Rea left his £9million fortune to his cat Blackie.
There should honestly be a law that says you cannot leave money to any pets or any illegitimate objects that cannot even hold/spend the money. That money will go towards that government into helping fix any economical or financial issues within that country or if they do not want it, set it aside as backup or emergency money but do not under any circumstance give it to your cat. What’s wrong with people nowadays?
