Animal inheritance on rise as people leave pounds to pets
Following on from the news that Alexander McQueen left £50,000 of his £16million fortune to his dogs, Petplan has found that McQueen is not the only one who is leaving pennies to his puppies.

- 54% of people would leave money to a furry friend
- 15% of people have already included a pet in their will
- 57% of females (aged 18-24) would leave money to a cherished critter compared to 42% of men in the same age range
