Ring in the New Year With This Alcohol-Free Calming Cat “Cocktail”

While you’re indulging in sweet strawberries and bubbly champagne as you wait for the clock to strike midnight, why not ring in the New Year with a tasty cat-friendly dupe—a “pink champagne mocktail” made especially for your furry friend. Created as a nod to this classic festive combination, it’s an alcohol-free, strawberry-infused drink that includes a feline-friendly calming supplement and salmon oil. We know that booming New Year’s Eve fireworks can trigger noise reactive kitties. That’s why we added a few drops of Rescue Remedy Stress Relief Pet Supplement, which is designed to help soothe anxious cats. The salmon oil contains Omega-3 fatty acids to support coat and heart health, while being appealing to seafood-fiend felines. (Just be sure to talk to your vet before introducing any new supplements and remember to keep alcohol out-of-reach of pets.)

Cheers to the new year with this DIY cat treat. See the full recipe below.
