Hello,
No, the heirs do not have any legal responsibility to look after the cats or to provide for the care of the cats, unless the heirs agree to do so voluntarily.

Thank you, ***** ***** cat rescue centre has informed someone that the RSPCA can become involved if we do not at least pay a destruction fee for each cat.
