58 and 63 are elderly?

58 is elderly? fark you, kid.

The younger thieving biatch does look rather elderly for 58.

Good, people who leave their money to their pets don't deserve to have any.

She did not leave $450,000 to her cat. Quoting the article: the elderly woman had drafted a will creating the "Puddy Cat Trust'' designating her money for lifetime care for Puddy, and for donations to 23 animal welfare agencies.

The 63 count indictment counts each check drawn on her account as four separate crimes.

A vitamix listed as a stolen thing? Dear gosh, I have found four commercial units over the last few months for $20 each at Goodwill, as well as last night finding an older 3600 (stainless steel) unit for $5.

Certainly not $450,000 worth. Leaving some money for the care of your pet is fine, but, seriously, they are going to live 15 years at the most. I don't think that any cat can eat that much cat food. I'd steal it too.

Did anyone find it funny that the condo association president was more pissed that the ladies wanted a bird feeder for their home that wasn't allowed under the covenant? lolz all around.
 
2014-04-19 10:33:50 AM  
The 58 looks 70 and the 63 looks 85 plus.

This is some heard livin' right there.

/I wonder what the 74 looks like?
//Probably younger as cats male 'em look younger

If my 57-year-old mom heard you calling 58 "elderly," subby, she'd probably have a few harsh words for you.

Oh yeah, and the obligatory douchebag who thinks animals don't deserve care.

A lot of people on Fark have the snatch and grab view of property rights, where if you aren't using it in a way they like, they feel someone is entitled to take it.
 
2014-04-19 11:31:49 AM  
Is money a fluid asset in the economy at large that should not be left static or as a trust fund for a house pet?  Yeah.  Does that mean that some addled old bat who, while meaning well, has more loose screws at this point than a '69 Dodge Dart whould be hosed by grifters who blow it on trinkets?  Nope.  Thievery doesn't correct stupid ideas.  It's just another way of misusing things.

The DA must be Catholic. "It was a sin for you to wanna feel up Ellen. It was a sin for you to plan to feel up Ellen. It was a sin for you to figure out a place to feel up Ellen. It was a sin to take Ellen to the place to feel her up. It was a sin to try to feel her up and it was a sin to feel her up. There were six sins in one feel, man! "

Dafuq?

Look, at 74, I'm still not assuming my cat is going to outlive me. And if it does? So what - my friends and family are mostly cat people.

Having been raised as a Catholic, I have to say, you know your Catholics.  There's going to be guilt, young man. If you enjoyed yourself, there's going to be a lot of guilt.

I've started a new routine when I see an old woman on the street.  I say to myself, "now there's a hot chick about your age!"  So far it isn't working.

Of course you would. Scruples are for other people right?

People who leave their fortunes to their pets are obviously mentally ill anyway, so their wills shouldn't even be considered valid documents. Just give it to a pet rescue charity or something.

/assuming that enterprising 'entrepreneurs' such as those in the article don't win it first

I'm saddened that once again, the article forgot the real victim. What happened to poor Puddy Cat, now that her owner is in a nursing home? :(
