A British couple said they have their hungry 6 year old cat Shortcake to thank for their winning a $1.2 million jackpot from a scratch-off lottery ticket.
Andrew and Paula Hancock of Mansfield, England, said Andrew had to run out to an Esso gas station on July 24 because they had forgotten to pick up food for their cat, Shortcake.
While at the gas station in Ollerton, Andrew bought a Monopoly Millionaire scratch-off ticket and ended up scratching off a $1.2 million top prize.
The couple said Andrew was so excited to be a millionaire that he forgot Shortcake’s food for a second time, but the lucky cat was treated to a dinner of ham to celebrate the family’s good fortune.
