Do you believe that we play cows ? That we became vegetarian ?
Not at all !
We eat grass to evacuate the hairs which we swallow by licking us. Indeed, the hairs we swallow by having a wash form balls ; if these remain stuck in our bowel, they can cause a dangerous intestinal obstruction.
The blades of grass we eat get involved in hairs in our stomach and form balls which we can elegantly vomit in a carefully chosen place as most great pleasure of our human. The grass also favors our intestinal transit, what can allow the balls of fluff to take out again by… uh… our other end. If your cat is very constipated or did not do his little poo daily, go at once to the veterinarian !
To chew grass also allows us to absorb certain nourishing elements which are necessary for us, as the folic acid for example, which plays an important role in our production of haemoglobin.
You can also cultivate grass for your cat if he has no access outside, he will be quite satisfied and will less be tried to chew on your house plants !
Hello sweet ones..indeed the girls have a lovely big tub of cat grass and nip and catmint in their new KDS (kitty day spa) and they do recycle i very elegantly..one on my camera strap in fact 😉 the pups also need the grass to chew as well..if they feel unwell the pups will chew only certain grasses then throw up..fun for all…hugs and loves Fozziemum…:) <3 <3
Great message! And we love the photo of Pixie peeking through the shrub. They obviously love having access to the grass under their feet.
It is a great idea to grown grass for your cat, just don’t let them have it around all the time or they will mow it all down like my Phoebe did.
We love when Dad grows us grass. Now that you mention it it is time again
*Timmy runs off yelling for Dad*
We haven’t had grass here in a long time! 🙁

What a great message and reminder for us cat people that there is a reason, and a good one, why our kitties are barfing. I adored Pixie peeking through the branches. The top branch looks like a small toy mouse is tied to it.
Well, that’s interesting! I usually eat grass and then yak it up again. Much to the mom’s dismay. ~Wally
I have my favourite patch of grass I always head for!!
Our cats have always enjoyed some fresh grass on occaison. It’s why we never use chemicals on the lawn.
I’m not fond of grass. I prefer to make my hairballs 100% pure! 🙂
Oh yeah… I LOVE noshin’ on the grass. It helps with the hair balls and whatnot, for sure. And pretty tasty, too!
We eat grass and weeds – in fact Lucy was very generous this morning and re-cycled some for Mum!!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
TW has bought me cat grass on more than one occasion but I don’t touch it.
I love grass! Mum grows it for me as I’m an indoor cat, though she does occasionally let me have some from the garden.
