Indoor cats spend about 60% of their day grooming themselves, making them prone to hairballs. Grass eating can help aid in their digestion and help coughing up hair balls. If your cat eats grass on a regular basis it may help to prevent the build-up of hairballs in their stomach.
Having a tasty, dedicated cat snack can lure your pet away from other dangerous or delicate plants. If your kitty likes to chew on or tip over your houseplants, a cat grass garden is the perfect way to foil her antics. Keep philodendrons, aloe, parsley and other dangers on a high shelf or hanging pot she cannot reach, and place your cat grass in a spot low to the ground where kitty knows it's hers.
The grass contains folic acid, a vitamin that aids the bloodstream. Cat grass also works as a laxative to help push out hairballs or bits of food that she's ingested. However, because cats may eat excessively when they are sick, always check with your veterinarian to be sure there isn't an underlying medical reason for over-consumption of cat grass.
Another theory is that cats may eat grass for some trace minerals and the vitamins A and D. Grass also contains chlorophyll, which, before the discovery of antibiotics, was a remedy for pain, infection, ulcers, skin diseases and anemia. Grass also contains folic acid, which helps with the production of hemoglobin, the protein that moves oxygen into the blood to help kitty’s circulation. Plus, there’s the benefit of breath cleansing chlorophyll.
How to grow the plant: Sow the seeds to 0,5 cm deep, cover the seeds in soil and moist the soil.
Place the container in a sunny spot in your home, making sure to water it regularly (misting may help avoid overwatering).
Your seeds will start to sprout in a few days and should be ready for consumption within 10-15 days. No need to transplant the grass into a dish. Your cat can graze directly from the garden pot.
Repeat sowing every 3-4 weeks to make sure your kitty has fresh grass to chew on.
