"Fat Cat" Given New Meaning

And we're not talking hefty in size. We just read this piece in the Huffington Post,  about Tommaso, a stray kitty from the streets of Rome adopted by an Italian heiress. Well, you guessed it: the 94 year old woman, Maria Assunta, recently passed away and left her entire fortune, estimated at 10 million euro ($13 million), to Tommaso via the care of a trusted nurse. Apparently, Italian law does not allow a pet to inherit directly.

We hope Tommaso puts his fortune to good use, helping Rome's estimated 180,000 stray cats. Can you think of any other ways the newly wealthy Tommaso could use that money? Let us know...

Wouldn't that be something if Tommaso's fortune *was* used to help all those homeless cats? :)
