* For certain long-lived pet species, this becomes less "crazy", and more "responsible": a young parrot or tortoise adopted by an adult human owner will likely outlive said owner by several decades or more. Given the number of such pets who end up at rescue centers (or even kill shelters) because an owner (old or young) died, the idea of providing a trust to ensure they are well cared for is not only reasonable, but an ethical obligation.

* An episode of ''Series/DesigningWomen'' had an old woman with a houseful of junk who left her fortune to her cat. Subverted in that the junk turned out to all be valuable collectibles, and she'd made her money in the first place from her cat appearing in television commercials.

There is some litigation expected from his thousands of children, but the fact that "Urza's Cats" are ten-meter-tall cybernetic killing machines might complicate things.

Added DiffLines:

* One episode of ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' implied that Marcie's aunt willed her whole estate to her cats while instructing Marcie to look after her cremated remains. (Steve clearly despised said aunt, and as a result, felt no regret or remorse over [[IAteWhat what happened to those ashes]]; his stories of her miserly ways during her life were likely to make sure [[CrossingTheLineTwice the viewers felt the same way]].)
