Millionaire tabby becomes Canada's richest cat

OTTAWA (AFP) - A lifelong bachelor who amassed a fortune by living reportedly simply left all his money to his cat after his death.

According to the Ottawa Citizen David Harper, the shy and somewhat reclusive owner of Red the cat, died in March at the age of 79, but left an estate worth 1.3 million dollars (1.1 million US) to his beloved tabby.

The United Church of Canada will administer the funds, in accordance with Harper's will, and be responsible for the three-year-old cat's care, feeding and veterinarian bills for the rest of its life, the newspaper reported.

Harper worked most of his life as a gardener in public service.
