Cats create a very special and tight bond with their owners. Just like dogs would. People who say cats don't care, well it doesn't seem to be the case. Cats show love in different ways and adore their owners. And their owners adore them. So, perhaps it was no surprise that a wealthy Bronx owner made sure her beloved family – her cats- would be taken care of after her death.

Troy and Tiger the two cats of author Ellen Frey-Wouter, have come to inherit quit a fortune. The two will share a $300,000 bequest, a small portion of Frey-Wouter's $3-million estate, that includes a large home in an exclusive section of the Bronx.

Frey-Wouter was 88 and a widow with no children when she sadly pasted. It is said that now two of her former home health aides each take care of her precious pets. The way it works is that they submit the bills for expenses like food, grooming and vet care and are reimbursed from that trust fund.
You might find this odd, but it isn't the first time the pets have been singled out by a doting owner. Back in 2007, when the infamous, "Queen of Mean," Leona Helmsley died she left her dog "Trouble" $12 million. 
The neighbor of the late author gave his thoughts to the matter, stating "I think that's incredible." A fellow pet owner, Tsoulos is among those applauding the thoughtful act and even indicated that he'd do the same for his dogs. "Your pets are your family and leaving money behind so that they can be taken care of is a beautifully humane gesture and it's a lesson for the rest of us," Tsoulos said.
