In the money: Millionaire Maria Assunta left her fortune to a stray cat she rescued, similar to the one pictured
An Italian cat has become the third richest animal in the world after inheriting almost £10 million after his wealthy owner died and left him the entire family fortune.
Maria Assunta died last month aged 94 years old and according to lawyers entrusted with her estate left the fortune in property to Tommasino, a stray cat she had found and looked after because of her love for animals.
Ms Assunta had a large property portfolio with homes and villas across the country, as well as several bulging bank accounts and share portfolios but no living relatives.
Lawyers Anna Orecchioni and Giacinto Canzona who are representing her say that she left the fortune to Tommasino in a will she wrote and deposited with them in their office in Rome in October 2009.
Mrs Orecchioni explained that under Italian law Tommassino  is not entitled to inherit the money directly and the will also asked for the money to be given to a ‘worthy animal association, if one could be found.’
