Cat inherits $13 million is now the 3rd richest animal

Cat inherits $13 million

A 4-year-old stray cat that was rescued from the streets of Rome has inherited a $13 million fortune from its owner, the wealthy widow of an Italian property tycoon.

Maria Assunta left the fortune to her beloved kitty Tommaso when she died two weeks ago at the age of 94. The feline’s newfound riches include cash, as well as properties in Rome, Milan and land in Calabria.

As her health began to fail two years ago, Assunta, who had no children, began to seek out a way to see that Tommaso was properly cared for after she died. In November 2009, she bequeathed her entire estate to the alley cat that she’d rescued.

The windfall for Tommaso places him No.3 on the list of wealthy pets, behind Kalu the chimp, whose owner left him $80 million dollars, and top dog Gunther IV, a German shepherd who inherited $372 million dollars from his father, Gunther III, the beloved companion of an eccentric German countess.

Real estate magnate Leona Helmsley famously left $12 million to her little dog Trouble, although her human descendents contested, and Trouble’s pot was cut to $2 million.

Mishka, the talking “I love you” Husky, does her first commercial

Mishka the talking husky

On February 7, 2008, the talking husky, Mishka’s owner uploaded a video of her saying “I love you,” and the video went viral.  Now the video has 62,961,525 hits. Siberian Huskies are talkers – every owner will vouch for this. Mine talked as well, and had many “sayings,” but could never master the “I love you.” Mishka has. In the “I love you” video, many attempts sound pretty close, but there is one that really stands out from the rest.

Now, Mishka has become even more famous and just recently appeared in her first commercial… a Purina Probiotic FortiFlora commercial which aired on Thanksgiving Day this year during The National Dog Show on NBC.

The commercial is below her viral “I love you” video. And below the commercial are three videos about the family’s trip to Long Island to do the shoot.

And I love you, too, Mishka!

Bearded Dragon playing Ant Crusher

Nope… not a dog. But this video is too good to pass up posting. I must say, this lizard plays better than I am sure I would.

Amazing how the force of the reptiles tongue is able to interact with the phone app… I practically have to pound my phone to get it to respond.


Funny dog photos with captions #1

Well… not just all dog photos and captions. There are a few cat photos with funny cations, too. After all, dogs and cats go together like peas in a pod… like bread and butter… or like positive and negative….
