Can You Grow Cat Grass?
Yes, you sure can grow cat grass yourself and it is very easy to do. You basically just need a planter of some description – a wide shallow type of pan is best, enough soil to grow the grass in and some cat grass seeds. Then add a little loving touch for a week or so and you have a dish of delectable grass that your cat(s) will love to browse on.
Although not a major part of a cat’s diet, grasses help with digestion and with clearing out any furballs. Eating grass also gives the cat small amounts of chlorophyll. Often when a cat is feeling a little off color – you can notice that she tends to gravitate towards the grass bowl. It really seems to help with stomach upsets.
You can satisfy your cats’ need for a little grass in her diet, by growing cat grass and leaving it available for her to browse on, whenever she feels the need.
