Everyone loves a cherished family pet.

Most people have had an animal in their lives that they've loved as if they were a member of their family.
You want to give your furry friend the world, and make sure they’re warm, fed, and protected.
But some people take this mentality to extremes, and gift their pets something more than just a chew toy and the occasional treat.
These 11 critters are the richest animals in the world. Prepare to feel pretty bad about your bank account.
Big Tibby the tortoise.
Big Tibby, a 52-year-old Tortoise, was lucky enough to inherit £50,000 from his wealthy owner, Donald Moss.
Okay, so it actually was given to his next-door-neighbor Christina Foyle, but was to be used solely to take care of the beloved tortoise after Moss passed.
Blackie the cat.
Blackie was considered the richest cat in the world, for a moment in time.
When his late owner, Ben Rea, a British antique dealer, died in 1988, he left the feline his $25 million fortune.
Csoki the African parrot.
Csoki is a beautiful African parrot owned by millionaire Victoria Brown from London, England.
When she died, she bequeathed the parrot £50,000 pounds.
Now that’s something to squawk about!
Flossie the dog.
Flossie, a yellow lab, is owned by celebrities Drew Barrymore and ex-husband Tom Green.
Back when they were still a couple, the faithful lab barked to alert them of a house fire as they slept. To show her gratitude, Barrymore put her house in trust for Flossie.
What a good girl.
