An Australian family auctioned off its five-bedroom home for $2,060,000 Australian dollars last month and ended up with a surprising offer for more money while the deal was in the process of closing, reports News.com.au. It turns out one of the bidders’ daughters saw the family’s cat Tiffany hanging out around during one of the inspections, and fell in love with her. The mom had joked about including Tiffany in the sale, since “she believes the house is her property,” and apparently the little girl wanted to take her up on that. The bidders upped their offer to $2.2 million as long as Tiffany came along, and the family agreed to sell their pet.
