Meet World's Richest Cat [View all]

(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:
