Maybe we can't have that long, gratifying talk we've always wanted with our cats, but thanks to one new company, at least we can finally split a bottle of wine with them!
Denver-based Apollo Peak has become the country's very first purveyor of wine for cats.
This alcohol-free 'wine' comes in white (Mos-Cat-O) and red (Pinot Meow) and closely mimics the scent, color, and flavor of actual wine. It's organic, all-natural, and 100% safe for cat, dog, AND human consumption.
The wine is made by brewing a special tea blend made from beetroot and a blend of other pet-safe herbs - including catnip, which according to the company's official website, might affect your cat quite differently than you'd think:
"When cats smell catnip, they tend to get funny, move around, and play a lot. The exact opposite occurs when they ingest catnip. They normally will become more 'mellowed' out when they drink the wine so it might actually help for those restless nights."
As of right now, the wine is available online in 8-'meownce' bottles for $11.59 or as a 1.6-'meownce' single tasting for $4.95 - a worthy new addition to your and Fluffy's Friday night Netflix marathons.
Would you buy this wine for your cat?
