What are your plans if you came into a fortune?

What would you do if you had tons of money or won the lottery? Recently, I have been buying lotto tickets, so who knows, maybe one day I will be able to answer that question. The wealthy often leave their fortunes to family, close friends or even to charity, but pets are the ones who inherited millions in these wills.


The beloved pets of the rich and famous are the envy of other pets, and even people. Their owners don’t mind paying thousands, even millions of dollars, to ensure everything their furry children have is top-notch. These spoiled pets even wear luxury branded collars and gear, such as Cartier and Gucci.


Do you spoil your pet?

According to the Washington University School of Law, between 12 and 27 percent of pet owners include their pets in their will. Of course, if you die, you want to make sure your pet is not deprived of their basic needs, but the wealthy can go a step further. Rich pets are often provided an inheritance that ensures they continue to live in the manner to which they have become accustomed. Owners also include pets in their will as a way of expressing gratitude and love.


The following list includes millionaires who left their “best friends” an inheritance that would stun any animal-lover. As a result, this doubles as a list of the world’s wealthiest animals.
