Winery Cats: Cuddling Opportunities Abound

You may think we’re writing a blog about winery cats because we’re just four days awacaty from Halloween.

Well, if this were a blog specifically about black cats, that would make a lot of sense. But this blog is about all types of winery cats — British shorthair, Siamese, Persian, Ragdoll, Maine Coon, Bengal, Abyssinian, American Bobtail, American Shorthair and so on.

At quite a few wineries, the resident dogs serve as unofficial greeters. They trot up to arriving cars, rub up against the guests and lead them to the front door of the tasting room. I kid you not. I’ve had this experience at least a dozen times.

But winery cats are different. I’ve had a few allow themselves to be petted as I approached the winery doors, but most just sit around wherever they want or go off exploring, hunting who knows what. There’s no question that, more so than dogs, cats have minds of their own.

You can check out some adorable “winery cat” photos here.

There’s even a full book devoted to the topic called “Wine Cats,” which is available on Amazon.

The book was put together by the same authors who brought us “Wine Dogs California” and Wine Dogs California 2.

We know you’re a wine lover. If you’re also an animal lover, you should check out these books. They are perfect for the coffee table, especially if your coffee table doubles as a wine table.

And the next time you visit a winery, be on the lookout for a cute little animal to cuddle between sips.
