Now you can leave it all to the parrot...

Your life was all about the parrot, your estate might as well be, too:

Gov. M. Jodi Rell has signed a bill into law that might ruffle some feathers.

The law, which takes effect Oct. 1, allows state residents to create trust funds for their pets, according to a statement released by Rell’s office.

The law allows residents to set aside funds necessary to provide their pets with reasonable care, including food, shelter and veterinary care, not for lives of extravagance, according to Boucher.

Boucher said she expects the law will be especially helpful to owners of pets with longer life spans, particularly certain parrots that can live to be nearly 80 years old.
