there's a rather famous book written on the subject, but of course, my mind can't quite recall the title--i'll write to someone slightly younger who is more likely to remember..... sigh. (we did a chat with them a few years back on www.pethobbyist.com.) also, rita at purrever ranch (http://www.gotcats.org/) has a sample form to help you write up something to go over with your lawyer. along with the warnings that others make, GO OVER IT WITH YOUR LAWYER, and do NOT assume that your state's laws even allow you to leave money/property/whatever to your pets. and make secondary arrangements as well, because you probably don't want to know how many people who promised to take in mom's cats and love them forever drop them at the kill shelter on the way to the cemetary. (or stick them in a room for four years with food, litter and water, and NO attention, because they PROMISED mom they'd keep them together--see my two little shaded silver persians in the front room. been here for over a year now; mom is 11 years old, all 4-declawed, and will let me pet her; daughter is 9, and still TERRIFIED......)
