LONDON -- He has a house and a trust fund -- but will it last all nine lives, especially in a down economy?

Time will tell for Tinker the cat, whose wealthy owner died recently, leaving the feline the bulk of her estate worth just under $1 million.

But for now, it's the lap of luxury for the former stray, who now lives in a London house valued at $500,000.

Tinker also has a $160,000 trust fund to keep him in catnip, cream and fine seafood.

When Tinker dies, the estate will pass to the trustees, Ann and Eugene Wheatley, who deliver Tinker's food and milk each day.
