Grass

Hey I've always heard grass is good for cats, as it heals their stomach aches? But my cat is a strictly,and I mean strictly, indoor cat! Do I bring in grass for her or what?

Well, there's this stuff called pet grass you can buy at your LPS and that's okay for cats and dogs and rabbits and mice and chinchillas and ferrets and rats and you get the point. I'll try finding a link for you so you know what it looks like. BTW, that stuff can be regrown a couple of times before it dies.

That's something like the grass I was talking about although this one you have to grow yourself, I think.

Otherwise, if you didn't want to buy something of that nature, you can buy an indoor formula cat food that has the ingredients the cat would get while outside.

I know Royal Canin and Nutro make an indoor formula.

Here are some links:

Thank you!!! I will look into the grass (indoor grass) thing. I already have the indoor cat formula..........She is doing prettyg ood on that, except for when she is somehow shut out of the room, because of a window shutting it, then she will eat really fast like she ain't never gonna get fed again!!Then she gets sick. Another thing....should I do somethingl ike that for my Cockatiel?

You can buy seed at pet stores and keep a flower pot of grass growing. Re-seed it every few weeks to keep fresh blades and trim it so they aren't too long. My cat grazes on it on a regular basis and it helps him expell hairballs. He won't take Petromalt or other products, doesn't like the hairball control dry food so he makes it a little difficult.

You can buy these trays that you just add water to for grass to grow. Gerona loves it and likes to nibble on it now and then. I'm enclosing some pictures to show you her with the grass.


Hmmm ... she put my grass by me ... should I eat it?



Oh, a few nibbles won't hurt.
