Deceased New York Cat Owner Leaves $300K Fortune to Her Two Felines

You’ve probably heard a similar story before, where a pet owner dies and ends up leaving all of their money to their pet. This is one of those stories and it is a Bronx, New York woman who recently died and left her fortune to her two beloved cats, Troy and Tiger. According to the New York Post, the late Ellen Frey-Wouters had written her will to state that her inheritance, in the sum of $300,000, would be left to her cats.

This wasn’t money that was meant for the cats to spend, but money that would be used to care for them and keep them out of a shelter and ending up in a cage. And due to her thoughtfulness, this ended up basically being a rags-to-riches story for her cat Tiger who had been living on the streets before until Frey-Wouters wound up adopting him. Now, Tiger is living the life of luxury and spends his time eating the best food, sleeping on a silk-lined bed, and his little bank account isn’t too shabby either. As a matter-of-fact, it’s bigger than most humans’ bank accounts.

Frey-Wouters’ former home health aide, Dahlia Grizzle, told the New York Post, “He deserves it. “He’s a wonderful cat.”

Grizzle is now taking care of Tiger and Troy, who she says were like children to their late owner. She has said that although she understood Frey-Wouters’ decision, her lawyer was a bit skeptical of her choice.

Grizzle is now caring for Tiger, who, along with Troy, was like a child to his late owner.

Above and beyond the $300,000 Frey-Wouters left to her felines, she split the remainder of her $3 million estate among her lawyer, home health aides, and different charities. Should Troy and Tiger both die before their inheritance runs out, the remainder of the money will be given to Frey-Wouters’ sister who lives in the Netherlands.
