If you've been looking for the perfect accompaniment to your cat's Fancy Feast, a Japanese company has just the thing. Time reports today that B&H Lifes has developed a wine made specifically for felines.
This new wine is called "Nyan Nyan Nouveau" ("nyan" is the Japanese equivalent for "meow") and hits shelves in Japan today. Although it isn't technically a wine since there's no alcohol, it does include juice from Cabernet grapes and is certainly packaged to mimic vino. Kotaku notes that the "Nouveau" in the title appears to reference Beaujolais Nouveau, which is popular enough in Japan to compel a group of wine enthusiasts to bathe in it. In fact, the country is the world's second-largest importer of that particular brand behind Germany.
"Nyan Nyan Nouveau" also contains catnip and Vitamin C and is designed to taste similar to red wine, though that would be up to you to judge for yourself. Cat owners interested in imbibing along with their furry friends can get it for 399 yen ($4), but production is limited to just 1000 bottles.
B&H Lifes reportedly developed the wine in response to products such as beer for dogs as well as requests from customers asking for a drink they can give their kitties when celebrating birthdays and holidays.
