We love growing herb plants for every conceivable use, and your cat is no exception. Cat Grass is a
medicinal herb for kitties! Herb gardening should benefit everyone in the household, even your pets!
Every cat owner knows that cats love to nibble. In order to protect your kitty from eating potentially harmful greens, provide them with a chemical-free "cat salad" that gives them a source of needed fiber. This herb plant is a great source of fun and health for your kitty.

Chewing and nibbling this safe alternative to other sometimes toxic houseplants will help your cats' digestion and reduce their stress levels. They'll get the feeling of the great outdoors without having to leave the house. Try potting some and placing it in various sunny locations around your home, your cat will thank you!

Why Grass for Cats?
Cats are carnivores, but they still need fiber in their diet. You can find cat food enriched with fiber at most pet stores. However, cat grass is way more fun! And cat grass provides fiber in its natural state. In addition, cat grass provides your cat with vitamins - including folic acid - which are important elements in a balanced diet. Cat grass also helps and prevents constipation and hairball buildup, and will assuage your cat's appetite for vegetation. What's not to love?
Do take note that some cats will vomit after eating grass. Experts say that this is normal, within limits. Monitor your pet, especially at first introduction.
