Have a glass of wine with your cat

How many times have you got home after a long day at work, kicked off your shoes, opened a bottle of red wine and sat down with a glass, only to find your mood ruined by the fact that your cat can’t join you in having a drink?

Cat drinking wine

Um, us neither, but apparently there is a market waiting to be tapped, albeit in Japan.

B&H Lifes has produced wine for cats named Nyan Nyan Nouveau, in a reference to the local equivalent of ‘meow meow’.

Describing the drink as wine may not be entirely accurate, however, as the drink is actually Cabernet grape juice, with added catnip thrown in for good measure.

Only 1,000 bottles have been produced, costing around 399 yen each ($4.20).
