We just found out about cat wine and we had to tell our Cat loving listeners.

First we had Pinot Noir, and now there is Pinot Meow the latter being a alcohol free wine for of favourite pets cats.

Yes, someone actually had the genius idea to invent a feline-appropriate “wine” for your sip on to sip on while your enjoy yours. 

The special ~drink~ is available in the U.S. through manufacturer Apollo Peak, and, of course, doesn’t contain any alcohol. The company told The Huffington Post the cat wine is made similar to a tea with two varieties - the aforementioned Pinot Meow and MosCATo. Its ingredients include organic catnip, water, and organic beet juice (red and gold) colouring. 

The company's founder Brandon Zavala said:

"Since we got it to look so much like a wine, we want it to be perceived as a wine by the consumer, that way they can feel as though they are having a glass of wine with their pet."

Meet Josh Marshall and his 8 year old son Gabriel!

Last year, Gabriel was diagnosed with Anaplastic Astrocytoma which is a rare malignant brain tumor. He has gone through many treatments and has seen great progress. The latest scans show that a large part of the tumor is gone. But one thing has remained is the scar on the side of his head. In steps his dad!


In order to make his son feel more confident, he got a tattoo of the scar on the side ofr his head as well. There are good stories on the internet people! You can read all the details here...

This little panda cub must be going through a bit of rebellious phase. 

This Video shared on Facebook shows a panda cub thing to make a run for freedom by busting through an iron door. 

His (or her) failed attempts are so incredibly cute. 

When a human tries to put an end to the escape, the little cub goes limp and refuses to move. It’s a toddler tantrum panda style. 

The cub is part of a giant panda breeding program in Sichuan, China. 

 

After a long anticipated wait, the World Health Organisation has released its report on coffee, and we can be excited for our health.

 

The report review scientific evidence from the past 25 years, the WHO resolved that coffee should no longer be considered a carcinogen.

In fact, it might have positive effects for two types of cancers – liver and uterus.

Now for the bad news – “very hot” drinks “probably” do cause oesophagus cancer. This means any beverage above 65 degrees Celsius.

But more good news! It’s not the drinks themselves, more the temperature of the drink that causes cancer. So it’s best to wait a few moments before drinking a hot tea or coffee.

At the moment, they don’t quite understand the exact reasons behind why hot drinks might lead to cancer, but there’s evidence that suggest cells in the oesophagus become damaged from the heat. So a little more research needs to be done in this area.
