Cat Grass

I started a small cultivation of cat grass last week and in the last few days it has really taken off and is growing faster then one would think it could grow.

Does anyone else grow or buy cat grass for their feline charges?

I bought a $3.95 packet of cat grass seeds at the pet store and I think there is enough seeds to grow a tiny lawn... Which I might do .

Cat grass is basically wheat or oat grass which is the same thing that we eat in our cereal etc... You could even grow a mini lawn of wheat grass to make a healthy drink for yourself and a tasty snack for your cat. It is supposed to provide ruffage and aid in digestions and hair balls, as well as freshen their breath (which Amadeus needs). It tastes good too... aparently I haven't tried any yet.

The grass for Amadeus should be ready for him to try by the end of the week. Yum

Amadeus will get a salad bar and I will have a miniature lawn, even with winter coming.

I defiantly don't want Amadeus throwing up. I'll try it and if it does make him sick I'll just grow myself a little lawn.

that's about all Maia will eat right now, she seems to be on a hunger strike and the vet doesn't know what to do about it. I'm taking her for a 2nd opinion Friday
