An elderly Chinese woman is making headlines for her decision regarding her $2.8 million fortune.
Here’s What We Know About The Elderly Chinese Woman’s Decision
According to The South China Morning Post, a woman with the surname Liu, who is based in Shanghai, made an initial will years ago. At the time, the woman decided to leave money and property to her three children.
However, since then, the woman fell ill and changed her mind. The outlet adds that her children did not visit her or care for her during her sickness. Additionally, they rarely contact her.
The woman has reportedly explained that only “her pet cats and dogs are there for her.”
Therefore, the woman has revised her will and insists that her $2.8 million fortune be used to care for her pets and their offspring after she passes.
The outlet reports that a local veterinary clinic has been appointed as the administrator of Liu’s fortune. Furthermore, the clinic will be responsible for caring for the woman’s pets.
The South China Morning Post reports that Liu has been informed of the risks of leaving her money to a clinic. Additionally, she’s been told that she can revise her will “if her children change their attitude towards her.”
“We told Auntie Liu that if her children change their attitude towards her, she could always alter her will again,” an official from the eastern China branch of the China Will Registration Centre explained, per The South China Morning Post.
At this time, it remains unclear whether the woman is keeping the alternative option in mind.

Guy Fieri Recently Went Viral For His Decision Regarding His Hefty Fortune
Unlike the woman who doesn’t seem to be leaving her kids a chance at touching her inheritance, Guy Fieri is laying a roadmap for his children to claim his. As The Shade Room previously reported, the Emmy award-winning television host requires that his kids receive two degrees to inherit his coins.
“Shaq said it best. Shaq said, ‘If you want this cheese, you got to get to two degrees.’ Well, my two degrees mean, you know, postgraduate. So, they’re on their way,” he explained in an interview with Fox News, published in December.
