Let's face it, your cat probably doesn't like you. Or need you. But maybe that can change.

In the likely case that you're drinking that glass of Napa red alone, give your feline a reason to join you. As Kotaku reported earlier today, Japanese company B&H Lifes has released Nyan Nyan Nouveau, a wine made exclusively for cats.

Nyan Nyan in Japanese means "cats meow." Nouveau refers to Beaujolais Nouveau produced in the Beaujolais region of France and popular in Japan. The drink contains no alcohol but is made with the juice of Cabernet Franc grapes, vitamin C and catnip and reportedly tastes like wine. The drink is meant for cat owners who wish to celebrate special holidays with their kitty.

But order soon, because there are only about 1,000 bottles available. Nothing like a new habit for the independent furball.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
