Am looking for a book I read a paperback mystery @ 1974. I thought the title was Ophelia, but not sure.  Have you ever heard of this:

  Eccentric old lady died and left her fortune to her cat. I believe the name of cat was Ophelia.  Evil nephew throws the cat down a well.  Cat comes back reincarnated into body of a beautiful long-legged red head.  Evil nephew gets his in the end, believe it was the attack Dobermanns that contribute to his demise

Stevenson, Florence

Ophelia
New American Library
Apr 1968
179 p.

Rich Miss Margaret Brewster leaves everything to her cat Ophelia. Lawyer Daniel Dillon kills the cat, who is transformed into a beautiful woman. Feigning amnesia, Ophelia becomes a femme fatale playing off Daniel against Miss Margaret’s next heir, innocent nephew Julian Brewster, to regain possession of her home.

Hope that helps. :)
