Hansen’s Team Pick:
You know those times when you really just want to drink a glass of wine after work, but you’re hanging out with your cat, and she looks like she’s had a rough day, too, and you feel really guilty for not being able to give her some of your cab sav? This kind of thing can’t only happen to me.
In fact, it would seem that this situation is seemingly universal, because a Japanese company has released wine for cats.
It’s wine. For cats. Cat wine. This is a real thing in the real world that you need to know about.
Pet company B&H Lifes has started producing “wine exclusively for cats” called “Nyan Nyan Nouveau”. In Japanese, “nyan nyan” refers to the sound a cat makes (and yeah, sometimes also refers to a flying cat made of a poptart because why the fuck not). I think adding the Nouveau to Nyan Nyan makes it sound pretty regal, don’t you? This ain’t no Franzia for cats, is what I’m saying.
Okay, before cat lovers round the world collectively clutch their pearls (“think of the kittens!”) you should know that Nyan Nyan Nouveau doesn’t actually contain alcohol. It’s made of juice from Cabernet grapes, Vitamin C, and catnip, but it supposedly tastes a lot like red wine.
Apparently, B&H Lifes developed the drink for cat owners “wanting to celebrate birthdays or Christmas with their beloved cats” but seriously, I think I’d give it to my cat just so I didn’t feel bad about drinking an entire bottle of wine alone. And at only (USD) $4 a bottle, this is a steal of a deal. You may think this all just sounds silly, but I say, “Treat. Yo. Self.” If you can read Japanese, here’s where you can buy it all up. But hurry, because there’s only a production of 1000 bottles, so why not just buy 10?
