Meet World's Richest Cat

(Newser) – Now that's some serious scratch—Tommaso, a 4-year-old former stray, is now the world's richest cat, the inheritor of $13.4 million worth of properties around Italy, reports the Guardian. Tommaso's rich owner, a 94-year-old childless widow, died last month, leaving her entire estate to her cat. However animals cannot inherit property directly in Italy, so the widow named a cat-loving nurse she met in a park as Tommaso's trustee. "I had no idea the signora had such wealth," said the nurse, identified only as Stefania.

I wonder when Tommaso will get a visit from the Meowfia, now that he's a 1 purrcent fat cat.

Here's the Daily Beast's report:

1. One by one, the felines are slowly gathering all the world's wealth to them.

We will all be screwn.

2. Reminds me of Steve Martin's old skit about his cat...

His cat took his credit card and spent all the money on cat toys. Steve Martin says "Oh sure, they're fun, but he got them all slimy".
