DIY Grow Cat Grass


Even though it is Spring, many parts of the world are still wrapped in Winter. And many cats, who live in warmer climates, are indoor cats, who don’t have access to the great outdoors, or the opportunity to eat grass. Dr. Foster has a blog on this topic, which begins, “Although cats are carnivores, they seem to have an occasional craving for live green plants. This may be because in the wild, carnivores ingest plant materials in the digestive tract contents of their prey.” That makes sense to me, but then anything that follows the natural way, generally does.

So if your cat is stuck indoors and doesn’t go out on a leash, perhaps you’ll find the following info-graphic useful (btw, if you don’t want to round up all the bits, etc., they sell kits for this, or perhaps you can find a pot already growing at a gardening center.)

  1. Our cat loved her grass. We usually got both the already growing from the garden center and the one to grow yourself so we always had some ready for her. When she grew older and a little lazy we put it in places where she had some work to do to get there to keep her moving.

    1. As I understand it, sometimes wheat is labeled as cat grass – I don’t know if cat grass is actually a type of wheat or not. Perhaps what we find in stores is better protected from kitties than what we grow at home…
