Cat Grass

Cooper has a problem.

Cooper likes to eat house plants. Cooper gets very sick. So we decided to try our hand at Cat Grass to see if it resolved his need to eat other, more toxic plants.

First off, lets clarify what Cat Grass is. Pet MD explains that it is not it’s own species and is usually just rye, barley or wheat grass that cats are instinctively drawn to. We grow it indoors for our indoor only kids that don’t get to visit the world at large and to give them a safer alternative to the grass outside that may have been treated with pesticides or who knows what else.

You can buy cat grass already growing at just about any pet stores, but when I was looking the grass was yellow and sad looking due to the horrible summer heat. Buying it living like that is a much more convenient way to purchase, which means more costly. It was about eight dollars for a tiny patch of grass, whereas the Cat A’bout below was only five dollars and was four times the size. Going cheaper means you are doing the work of planting and waiting for it to grow. I have tried both ways so you can decide which, if any, you would like to choose.
