Cat wine bottles

You know how I collect cat wine bottles?

Two more just came out ... turquoise and coral ... and I picked 'em up today.

I have 18 now ... all still sealed. As far as I know, I'm just missing two ... a clear turquoise one and a clear pink one issued about five years ago.

Last year I finally bought a bottle to drink. It was a reisling and so-so.

I've seen them before but didn't know that there were that many different types. You have so many!

Never seem them before. Does they come in a different colour every year? Like we did have for years: Art Wine - with one artist each year to decorate the label of "This years selscted Art Wine"

I have 22 of these bottles (no duplicates). I collect them without the labels and wine. At present I am trying to get a list of the colors and the years they were issued and you seem to have the biggest collection with the info I'm seeking. Would you be willing to send me a list the colors you have and the years they were issued. I know I am missing the very first one which was black without a collar so I know there are at least 23 in total. I have the following:
Dark Red, green, blue; Clear yellow, turquoise, pink, clear; Metallic coral, turquoise, gold, silver, blue, dark purple, light purple, green, chartreuse; Frosted white (with collar), black (with collar), green, orange, red and solid white.
Would love to hear from you.

I am so happy to see many other "happy cat" wine collectors! I have around 25 different colours, and is also trying to get a comprehensive list of all the colours. I have several doubles that I'm willing to trade or sell. I know I still need the frosted orange and milk (snow) white ones. If any of you are interested, let me know :) I am in London, Ontario. silly.jen@hotmail.com

I have 14 of them. Some of them are going for 45.00 on ebay. I would like to find out the total number that have been released and what year. From what I have read online, they issue different colours every year to different countries.
