[float=left][/float] Tommasino, an Italian cat who was rescued as a stray by a wealthy Italian woman Maria Assunta, has become the third richest animal in the world inheriting over $15 million after his wealthy owner died and left him the entire family fortune.

Maria Assunta died last month aged 94 years old and according to lawyers entrusted with her estate, left the fortune in property to Tommasino.

Ms Assunta had a large property portfolio with homes and villas across the country, as well as several bulging bank accounts and share portfolios but no living relatives.

Lawyers Anna Orecchioni and Giacinto Canzona who are representing her say that she left the fortune to Tommasino in a will she wrote and deposited with them in their office in Rome in October 2009.

Mrs Orecchioni explained that under Italian law Tommassino  is not entitled to inherit the money directly and the will also asked for the money to be given to a ‘worthy animal association, if one could be found.’

Tommasino will be joining other millionaire animals such as Gunther a German Shepherd thought to be the world’s richest animal after inheriting  $141 million from his wealthy heiress owner – Karlotta Liebenstien. Another member of this exclusive club is the cat “Blackie” who was left $14million by British recluse ben Rea.
