Disclaimer: Do NOT give cats alcohol. It is doubleplus ungood for them.
That being said, this cartoon was inspired by my red-point Siamese girl, Sigrid, who died in 1999. She loved white wine, sparkling or otherwise, and would steal it out of any glass she could find when you weren’t looking. We didn’t let her drink it…but she managed to get enough to actually get a little tipsy a couple of times. And a little hungover the next morning, too.
I got her when she was already six years old, and she died of cancer, so I don’t think that affected her lifespan, but honestly, I don’t really know. So, if you’re drinking tonight, remember to guard your glass from curious kitties! Happy New Year!
