Introducing Non-Alcoholic ‘Wine’ For Kitties, The Newest Cat Commodity!Ashley Maisano
Of course cats can’t drink wine, as alcohol is extremely dangerous for pets. But now there is a drink for cats that looks like wine that your furry feline can enjoy with you while you’re relaxing and drinking the real stuff!
Apollo Peak, a Denver-based company, made the drink which is alcohol-free and grape-free. In varieties like Pinot Meow and MosCATo, the “wine” is made with organic catnip and water and colored with organic beet juice.
“It’s made like a tea,” Apollo Peak founder Brandon Zavala told The Huffington Post. “But since we got it to look so much like a 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 explained that the company started out as a joke when he put a label on a real wine bottle. But then he realized that maybe some people really would like a wine-like drink for their cats.
And that is when Apollo Peak was born. The products are approved by local veterinarians, and cats love it! They are already available at some stores locally in Colorado as well as online. And they will also be at CatConLA at the end of the month.
