Cat Grass

Just wondered if anyone else has tried this for their cats.

I saw it in a shop a couple of weeks ago and thought i'd give it a go, its a tray that you add water to and wait a few days and hey presto.....cat grass.

Its supposed to help indoor cats with their digestive systems or something, my cats are loving it.

oh yeah, my kitties like it as much as catnip. I bought a bag of seeds from the pet store and try to keep some planted at all times.

How much do you guys pay for the cat grass setup, or the seeds? Man, I ought to go into business. All of the cat grass and seeds I've seen in the stores are oats. Oat seeds germinate very quickly and the grass is very tender. It's been a while since I bought oats for the horses, but they're probably $10-12/ 50-lb bag. Imagine selling an ounce of seeds (oats are very light, so that would be a bunch of oats). Let's see......I'd make close to $800 per bag!!!

Better idea, if you have a feed store nearby, ask if you can go in the feed warehouse and sweep up some oats. There are usually plenty lying around, near the mixer, the oat bin (if they have oats in bulk), or around the bags of oats if one has a hole in it. Better yet, buy a whole bag, put some soil and seeds in about 7-800 styrofoam cups, and take them to all the shelters!

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you criticize him, you're a mile away and you have his shoes.

Hmm. I think I paid $2-$2.50 for a 4-oz bag. According to the back of the bag, it is about 40% barley, 40% oats, and 20% wheat. Although, all the "grass" that sprouts looks the same to me.

I've definitely concluded those little trays are a waste of money. I don't have much of a green thumb but throw this stuff in a pot, throw on a little dirt and water, and it sprouts and grows so quickly it seems unnatural. It seems to die back pretty quickly, though. (That's when you throw some more seeds on.)

It's almost keeping Stormy from bothering my other plants. Almost.
