Last week I come home from work, open the door and instantly smell alcohol! We don't drink much so my radar was up.

I walk into the Kitchen and found a full bottle of red wine had been knock off the countertop and spread out all over the entire floor. So while I stood there surveying the damage, Jonsey my male silver tabby comes sauntering in. He was so busted because he had red wine stains on his fur!

So, the next morning I'm working from home notice my other kitty, Sophie is not doing well. She was dragging her butt to the food bowl, not her usual bouncy self.

I was worried that she had licked up some of the glass shards, so I took her to the vet.

Nope, she had alcohol in her system! My little kitty is a whino! Looking back that morning, she was wobbling while she walked and now it hit me she had a hangover.

We now hide all the wine bottles!

I knew dogs could get drunk but not cats. Glad you went to the vet, and glad your little lush is ok.

Cats are funny enough when sober, can't imagine one on booze.

Are they walking straight today:>)

I have not caught our furries in the act but wine bottles go in a very hefty bottle holder (partially filled with concrete after an accident on the patio in OK winds) or set in the sink.

Baking soda and peroxide will get the wine stain out of the tile grout.
