Fats Cats!

You know I'm a sucker for a kitty with an inheritance -- especially when one of them is named Troy! 

The New York Post reports that a Bronx widow left $300,000 to her two cats in her will, along with instructions that the funds be used to make sure the felines, Troy and Tiger, would “never be caged” and always be lovingly cared for.

Tiger especially hit the jackpot. The former alley cat is now living the good life in sunny Ocala, Fla., dining on filet-mignon-flavored Fancy Feast and bedding down in a plush faux-fur bed with silk lining.

“He deserves it,” said Dahlia Grizzle, the former home health aide to the late Ellen Frey-Wouters, and now Tiger’s caretaker. “He’s a wonderful cat.”

Frey-Wouters, a Netherlands native who worked for the United Nations, died in 2015 at age 88. Her husband, a Brooklyn College professor, passed away in 1989, and the couple’s only child died in infancy.

“The cats were like her babies,” Grizzle said.

Of course this isn't the largest pot a pet has been bequeathed. In 2007, Leona Helmsley left $12 million to her Maltese named Trouble.
