>>Japanese Company Develops Wine For Cats

(Undated) -- Wine drinkers in Japan can now share a glass with their feline friends. According to Kotaku.com, the pet products company B&H Lifes is releasing a wine for cats called "Nyan Nyan Nouveau." Apparently, in Japanese "nyan nyan" refers to a cat's meow. While the wine doesn't actually contain any alcohol, it is made from Cabernet grapes. It is also blended with vitamin C and catnip for a mixture that supposedly tastes similar to red wine. The limited edition wine will set purchasers back four dollars.

I am not sure that might be a good idea.

Only because it is a limited edition, I might just buy a case. :D

I never knew that about grapes and cats. Maybe that's only unprocessed grapes, though? I can't imagine a Japanese company would overlook a detail like that. I mean, Hello Kitty is a cultural institution there - they'd never put it in danger!

Hang on to that case. When Parker gives it a 98 (2 points off for being under 14% alcohol) you can sell it on eBay and make a killing!
