DENVER, June 17 (UPI) -- A Colorado company is looking to help cat owners enjoy the experience of sharing a glass of wine with their pets.

The non-alcoholic, beet-based cat wine was developed specifically for cats by Denver-based Apollo Peak.

Cats can enjoy the company's products in two varieties, including the red "Pinot Meow" and white "Moscato."

"All of our cat wine products have a proprietary blend that includes all-natural organically grown catnip, fresh beets and natural preservatives to help hold the taste and color," the company says on its website. "We believe in natural ingredients for our particularly classy feline friends."

While the lack of alcohol ensures that cats won't get "drunk" from drinking Apollo Peak's wine, the products do contain organic catnip, which can produce a kind of drunken reaction.

"Well, depending on how much they drink - the effects will vary," the company says. "When cats smell catnip they tend to get funny, move around and play a lot. The exact opposite occurs when they ingest catnip. They normally will become more "mellowed" out when they drink the wine so it might actually help for those restless nights."

Because it is made from natural ingredients, the wine is also safe for dogs, and humans, to drink. The company teased an upcoming product for canines.
