If they pass before them, people want their pets to be taken care of long after they’re gone. For most pet owners, that means ensuring that a trusted family member or friend is appointed to take care of their beloved furry friend. For the disgustingly rich pet owners, however, that can mean leaving a f*cking absurd inheritance to their beloved, non-speaking, non-human, non-money-spending quadrupeds. Check out the following pets who inherited ridiculous — AND I DO MEAN RIDICULOUS — fortunes from their owners:

Trouble the Dog

When Trouble’s wealthy owner Leona Helmsley died, she left her pooch a $12 million inheritance. Judging by that fabulous sweater, I think it’s safe to say that Trouble is totally #worthit. However, Helmsley’s family contested the inheritance in court, arguing that her poor mental health lead to her to make the decision to leave Trouble all of that money over her own grandchildren. A judge granted Trouble only $2 million in the end, even though it’s completely obvious that Helmsley’s grandchildren didn’t deserve a penny of Trouble’s inheritance. After the news of her $2 million worth got out, Trouble had to put a full-time security guard on staff due to kidnapping threats. If anyone has ever understood the sentiment “mo money, mo problems”, it was surely Trouble the dog.

Gigoo the Hen

Publishing mogul Miles Blackwell has the most expensive living Sunday dinner in the world after making his hen Gigoo worth $10 million. Blackwell and his wife Briony see Gigoo as their child, which brings new meaning to the term “food baby”.

Tommaso the Cat

Wealthy Italian widow Maria Assunta rescued Tommaso on the streets of Rome and, in a story that sounds like it’s straight out of a weirdly satisfying Pixar film, left Tommaso $13 million, as well as real estate in Rome, Milan, and Calabria. Obviously that’s a lot of property for one cat to handle, so she had her lawyers find an animal welfare association to take care of the estate, as well as Tommaso. (Gonna go ahead and imagine this is a Ratatouille-type situation, where some Italian schlump appears to be “running” the estate, when really all of his decisions are coming from Tommaso clawing directions at him).

Gunther IV the German Shepherd

Gunther IV is the richest pet in the world, with an estimated worth of $372 million. Gunther IV is the son of Gunther III, who was owned by German Countess Karlotta Lieberstein before she died. The Countess left all of her wealth to Gunther III, and when he passed away his son, Gunther IV inherited the money.

I’m still talking about German Shepherds, by the way. The Countess Lieberstein was a human being who left her estate to one German Shepherd, and then when that German Shepherd died his son, who is also a German f*cking Shepherd, inherited the money.

Just wanted to make sure that was clear because we are talking about THREE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY TWO MILLION DOLLARS HERE. Gunther IV dines on steak and caviar each day and owns Madonna’s former Miami beach mansion. And no, I didn’t just make that up to be funny. That’s actually true. A German Shepherd owns Madonna’s former beach house.

Blackie the Cat

Blackie is the richest cat in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. Ben Rea left $25 million to Blackie when he died, while he left his relatives sweet f*** all (AKA nothing). The millionaire recluse obviously also left Blackie some personality traits, because no one knows of Blackie’s whereabouts today. Our best guess is he’s on a Yacht in the Atlantic, Leonardo-DiCaprio-ing his way to visit his good friend Gunther IV’s Miami beach house.
