Do you often enjoy the “occasional” glass of wine, but are guilt ridden by your cat’s judgmental glares? Or are you just in the market for a new drinking buddy?
Well, look no further because we have “purrr-fect” solution for you.
Introducing Apollo Peak, this Denver based company is America’s first ever feline wine manufacturer, offering up fun flavors like “Pinot Meow” and “MosCATo.” Although these non-alcoholic beverages may resemble the look of wine, the ingredients are tails away from toxic. Apollo peaks wine is made up of all organic catnip, and water colored beet juice, aka all the things your cat will love.
“It’s made like a tea,” founder Brandon Zavala told The Huffington Post. “But since we got it to look so much like wine, we want it to be perceived as a wine by the consumer—that way they can feel as though they are having a glass of wine with their pet.”
Zavala started selling these drinks commercially in November, after being inspired by his eldest cat, Apollo. He said it started when he put a label on a regular wine bottle as a joke, but it’s now a viral phenomenon.
Fortunately for us and our feline counterparts, both drinks are totally safe and, according to Zavala, are veterinarian approved. However, you should still check with your personal vet first, especially if your cat has urinary tract issues.
Happy drinking, cat lovers!
