Wordless Wednesday: Enjoying Kitty Grass

HAPPY WEDNESDAY!


I love cat grass and here I am enjoying this one from VitaKraft. It's the one Mum always buys for me and she buys it from Amazon (£14.94 for pack of 6). It's a grow your own grass kit and it contains selected highly germinable special seeds that are good for your cat's health, especially for indoor cats like me. Mum grows it indoors and it only takes a few days to grow. I really love it!

Why is grass good for cats?


Cat grass contains high levels of vitamins, minerals and chlorophyll and also helps with digestion. It contains folic acid, which is an essential vitamin for cats (and humans!), assisting in the production of hemoglobin, which is the protein that moves oxygen around in the blood. Mum buys her own version for humans - Naturya Organic Wheatgrass Powder 200 g Nutritional Power Food Pouch - because she does tend to be anaemic sometimes.


Why do cats sometimes thow up after ingesting cat grass?


Sometimes cats do regurgitate when they eat grass because they lack the necessary enzymes to break down vegetable matter. This actually helps eliminate all the indigestibles like hairballs from the cat's digestive tract. Also, being a natural laxative, grass helps cats get rid of those troublesome hairballs from the other end too! And we cats know how much better we feel after ridding ourselves of those!


So, dear furry kitty friends, do you love cat grass too?

Mr. Cat is so obsessed with cat grass that he won't stop until he eats it all in just one time. If I try to take it away he will meow until I give it back. After a few minutes there's no more grass. So, I decided to give up on cat grass :(

I try to let her have only a little and then I hide it :)

How adorable! And an admission: My cats don't like grass. I have tried and tried it, and they either sleep on it or ignore it. I should send all of the grass to you!

Neither of us here care for cat grass. We give it a good sniffing then turn away.
