Steep catnip or cat-safe herbs in hot water, strain, dilute, and serve as a safe cat wine treat.
Although alcohol is poisonous for cats and is never given, alcohol-free alternatives commonly called “cat wine” or “catnip wine” exist. These beverages are typically made with cat-friendly ingredients such as catnip or other herbs steeped in water or broth.
To make safe cat wine, follow these steps:
- Steep a tablespoon of catnip or cat-safe herbs in a cup of hot water for about 10 minutes.
- Allow the mixture to cool, then strain to remove any solids.
- Dilute the infusion with an equal amount of water or unsalted chicken broth.
- Serve cat wine to your cat in small amounts as an occasional treat.
Before giving any new drink to you cat , check if the ingredients are completely safe for it to consume. If you are unsure, please consult a vet for advice.
