Would you leave money in your will to a pet?

British pet owners are set to bequeath a staggering £26 billion to their pet and many will do so without telling their family or friends, research suggests. Rich pets hit the headlines this week when it emerged fashion designer Alexander McQueen left £50,000 in his will for the care of his pet dogs. The new findings reveal 35 per cent of pet owners plan to leave their pets more than £10,000 in their wills, with a further 37 per cent admitting they intend to leave more to their furry companion than a close relative or family friend.
