Wine for cats?

 TAGS:undefined

Have you ever thought to share some of your delicious wine with your cat while relaxing in the comfort of your home? As the title suggests, the new trend, or rather, the new fashion for our beloved feline pets has come to us, and, apparently, has arrived to stay. Apollo Peak is the company that is behind this innovative idea.

But do not panic, obviously, Apollo Peak has created a special drink with no alcohol or grapes for our feline friends as these two substances, especially the first, are dangerous and harmful to any kind of pet. With super original and funny names like Pinot Meow or MusCAT, the wines are made from organic herbs and dyes of the same range to make them attractive and delicious for our little friends.

Brandon Zavala is the founder of Apollo Peak, who, curiously, named his company after the name of one of his cats, Apollo. He claims that this drink is like a tea for cats, but since they are very similar to wine colors, he decided to market it as wine to attract the attention of potential consumers and all those cat-lovers. This way, says Brandon, owners will feel they are having a drink with their pet, isn’t that great?

Zavala began distributing its creation in November last year and has received very good response from users. However, the idea is not entirely original. The company Nyan Nyan Nouveau (referring to the colorful viral cat released some years ago), created a similar product but with two big disadvantages compared to the wines of Apollo Peak: 1) is only available in Japan and 2) is made with grapes, which, as mentioned earlier, may be harmful to the health of cats. Brandon Zavala’s wines, on the other hand, are organic and made with beets, which have no negative effect on cats and has been approved by several veterinarians.

Although studies show that the beets are not harmful to our cats, or even our dogs, it is best to consult with your veterinarian before acting. Also, remember that in tastes genres are broken, and, as much as these drinks look delicious and appetizing, your pet may ignore them or hate… after all, they are cats.

The Denver Cat Bar: the only place you can have a good glass of wine and fun with cats

 TAGS:undefined

Yes, you read it right, cats drinking wine in a bar could be a real thing, at least if you live in the United States. This fashion trend has grown a lot in recent years, you can easily proof that just by looking for entertainment guides for major cities worldwide. From ice bars, children bars to pet bars or even celiac oriented bars.

But what we had not seen so far was a bar completely inhabited by cats, something that a group of cat-lovers from Denver, Colorado (USA) has been proposing through the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. The Denver Cat Bar, how this group is intending to call this establishment, would combine cats and wine in an environment where customers could interacting with cats rescued from abandonment or street life while enjoying a glass of their favorite beverage.

Thus, those who cannot enjoy the company of these elegant and curious animals at home, by the fact of living in rent (in the United States is quite common that landlords do not allow pet ownership to their tenants), will have at least one place do so while sipping a glass of delicious wine. The bar would also have an area for eating and drinking, but customers can take their drink to the “cat room” if they wish.

The promoters of the establishment intend to raise the not inconsiderable sum of $ 60,000, and they have already won the support of hundreds of small investors, who according to the amount contributed may include your name on one of the walls of the room, place your favorite photo with your pet in The Denver Cat Bar, one night for two with appetizers and drinks on the house or even be appointed official friend of the bar and get a lot more of additional rewards.

It will be nice to bring up these ideas here, wouldn’t be?
