Cat Grass

Hi Sweets,

This is nothing new for those of you that already follow me Instagram, but since I love this picture so much I thought I'd upload it on my blog as well. This is Minou's Cat Grass. It grew incredibly fast and has these little water drops at the tips that I had to take a photo of it.

I shot this picture with my iPhone 4s and then put a Instagram filter over it.

Love,

    2. Minou must be a house cat then. I was thinking that cat grass was some kind of catnip plant.

    4. A cat needs to eat grass now and then to help with digestion =)
      And if they have swallowed hairballs, it helps them to throw it up.

  3. people, it is for the cat to eat it. It is special grass that smells and tastes fantastic for cats. You can put the plant in the backgarden or in your house. Don't know if it's the same as 'catnip'. Think so.

  4. Cat Oat Grass and Cat Wheat Grass are cereal grasses. The oat grass is widely cultivated for its edible seeds. Our popular breakfast oat cereals and wheat cereals are made from the seeds of these plants! The wheat grass is also widely cultivated for its commercially important grain. Athletes and other health conscious people have made juicing the wheat grass very popular. They drink the wheat juice for its high concentrated levels of vitamins and minerals. However, there is yet no scientific proof that a cat is capable of extracting nutrients from ingesting plants, while there is extensive proof that they are purely carnivorous and derive all of their necessary vitamins from eating meat.


    When the oat seed or wheat seed is planted it produces beautiful, healthy green blades rich in chlorophyll (a natural breath freshener), antioxidants (helps fights cancer), vitamins, minerals and amino acids. While this may be healthy for humans, it is not known or proven whether it has any benefit for cats. It is also known that certain plant products can be very harmful to cats; in the case of cat grass, it may be better for a cat to avoid eating mature cat grass, because the oats it produces can damage their digestive tract. Immature cat grass seems to pose no harmful effects.


    Among the possible explanations for why cats enjoy eating grass, here are a few that are commonly postulated, but as yet unproven (except perhaps for the fourth one):
    1.) Aids in a healthy digestion, and helps move hairballs along. Instead of coughing up the hairball, the hairball is more likely to be passed through your cat's digestive system.
    2.) Great source of fiber (roughage) in your cat's diet.
    3.) Contains chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is a natural substance that makes grass green and acts as a natural breath freshener for your cat.
    4.) Cat Oat Grass and Cat Wheat Grass taste great to your cat.


    Best of all, Cat Grass Seeds are very easy to grow.
