The short answer is no. You are not crazy for wanting to provide for your pet after your death. For many individuals, a pet provides the love and care that another person could provide. Often, a pet is like a child so why would you not want to ensure that your pet is looked after in the event you are no longer able to care for it. If your pet has acted as a companion and has made your life more enjoyable it is perfectly understandable that you would want to provide for it after your passing. Although it is maybe a little odd to leave an entire fortune to your pet, it has been done before. It has been reported that Oprah Winfrey, although famous for many other reasons, is also known for a rather large bequest to her pets – $30 million. However, that bequest pales in comparison to the bequest of Carlotta Liebenstein, an Austrian Countess. She left her German shepherd Gunther III a whopping $80 million. Gunther has apparently made some pretty wise investments as the inheritance has grown to over $250 million since Liebenstien’s death. Although the bequests mentioned above are extravagant, there is nothing odd about wanting your pet to enjoy, after your death, the same lifestyle it had while you were alive. Your pet has likely provided you with friendship and comfort so shouldn’t you do the same for them.
