Thanks to a new product in Japan, homebody cat hoarders will never have to drink alone again.

A Japanese pet supplement company called B&H Lifes has begun selling wine made specifically for cats.

The Fancy Feast pairing is called "Nyan Nyan Nouveau," and retails for 399 yen -- $4 -- per bottle. The cat wine does not actually contain any alcohol, so the cats' humans will have to get tipsy on their own.

"Nyan nyan" is the equivalent of "meow meow" in Japanese, and is made of Cabernet grapes and catnip. It supposedly tastes like red wine, at least to humans. No word on whether it meets cats' discerning palates.

The company is only producing 1,000 bottles in its first batch, and is marketed for celebrating birthdays or holidays with feline friends.
