Man leaves estate to his cats

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Tennessee man gave his entire estate to his two cats instead of his family.

Leon Sheppard left behind a house and over $200,000 for his two cats, Frisco and Jake.

His will outlines that the money is to care for his cats and the maintenance of the home.

The family could see some money from the estate eventually.

When Frisco dies, whatever is left of the estate, including the home, can be passed to Sheppard's human heirs.

But Jake must still be cared for.
