Murphy's New Cat Grass

We brought home some cat grass for Murphy for the first time yesterday, and whoa baby, does he love it. He just chews and chews on it, although I don't think he's actually eating anything.







After all that excitement, back to his favorite spot in the house, this box.

I didn't know you could buy cat grass ready grown. What a good idea.

I usually grow some in winter for the boys. I start it off in the closet which holds the hot water cylinder then forget about it for days on end.
When I finally do remember and go to retrieve it it's like a jungle in there.

Murphy seems to be a really happy grazer.
All that chewing wears a cat out, you know?

Murphy looks like a happy boy with all his grass. My crew just looks at it like 'why is the grass growing in the house?".

I never noticed that little spot of ginger on his white paw...too cute.

Yeah, that spot on his paw is just adorable to me too. That, plus the exclamation point on his nose.

Where did you buy the cat grass?

I couldn't find it already grown at Petsmart, but I found it at a little local pet store called Pet Valu. They specialize in the premium foods like Merrick BG (thanks, Lisa, for the suggestion), Wellness, etc. The funny thing was that he took to it immediately. One look at that grass and he was all over it.

My girls are so bored with me right now, I need to introduce something new in the house.

Murphy is gorgeous, as always.

I know what you mean, Marie ... don't you feel an obligation to produce something new and different every so often, whether it's food, a treat, a toy, etc.? If we only knew which ones were going to be a hit and which weren't. I got Murphy a stand-up thing with a bird on the end, where if you bat at it, it makes a chirping sound like a bird. Murphy had no use for it whatsoever.

Yup, now multiply that times 3 and you see my problem. I think being home all day makes it worse. They don't miss me. Isn't that a country song? "How Can I Miss You If You Won't Leave?"

Exactly. It's the country version of "absence makes the heart grow fonder." Then again, there's "out of sight, out of mind," so I don't know which to believe.
