Bologna’s Cats Inherit Plush Apartment
Stray cats in the northern Italian city of Bologna got some good news this week when they inherited a city-center apartment worth more than $250,000. The top-floor apartment boasts seven rooms, a garage and a garden lined with palm trees. The residence was bequeathed by the late Fiorella Scannabissi, who had adopted many strays during her life. When she wrote her last will and testament in 1992, she decided she would leave her Bologna home to the city’s strays. Scannabissi’s will states that the local council should sell her home – after which all proceeds will go to the city’s cattery, Trebbo di Reno, which looks after Bologna’s strays.
