Couple Sell Family Home Including Pet Cat in the Deal
An Australian couple agreed to sell their family cat in order to increase the value of their home by A$140,000 (£75,000).

According to Sky News, a potential buyer saw the Melbourne house and insisted they would only buy it if Tiffany the cat was included.

The Perceval family received a bid of £2,060,000 AUD after auctioning their five-bedroom home.

The real estate agent then approached the family to say that the child of one of the bidders had become smitten with the house cat during a recent viewing.

The bidder offered to buy the house for £2.2 million AUD, as long as Tiffany was part of the deal, reports.

The Perceval family agreed to the new terms which saw the value of their home increase by by A$140,000 (£75,000).

While the family said they would be sad to see four-year-old Tiffany leave, they do have two dogs, two rabbits and a fish to fall back on, reports the Independent.
