As The Local reports in "Bologna's Cats Inherit Plush Apartment," she loved the stray cats of the city so much that she left her top-floor, seven-room apartment to them. No, this is not a case where the neighbors might consider going to court to stop a messy situation.
The cats will not be living in the home worth US$243,944.
Instead, Scannabissi left instructions for her home to be sold by the local council. The proceeds from the sale will be donated to the city's cattery, which takes care of the local strays.
What this illustrates is the flexibility of estate plans.
This is just one example of what can be done in an estate plan to make sure that what you support in life continues to receive support after you pass away. For Scannabissi it just happened to be stray cats.
By meeting with an experienced estate planning attorney your support for causes may be carried on through an estate plan which is often not complicated.
