Does your cat eat grass?

I'm not sure if a lot of people know this, but cats really eat grass. When I was younger I would notice our cats grazing in the garden. I originally thought that it was because they were hungry or maybe they just liked how it tasted :) Later on I found out that grass is actually indigestible for felines and they just eat it to help them regurgitate stuff such as fur (hairball!). Of course we should make sure that there are no fertilizers and pesticides for it to be safe for our pets.
Our Nugget is obsessed! In fact, I don't think I've ever encountered a cat who loves grass more than he does! And this is just the normal stuff, okay... and not "grass" or catnip :)
Look at that face! So funny!
We don't have a garden in our unit so he has to make do with the wild grass growing beside the potted plants (all cat safe). I should really get him a wheat grass patch soon :)
Is that what I think it is?
I was holding a few blades of grass while adjusting my the focus on my camera when...


  1. eat grass? hmm.. that's something new for me.. i thought cow, goat etc only eat grass =)

  2. i know about this! my cat doesn't just eat grass, she munches on the leaves of certain houseplants! (driving my mom mad!) and then they puke it out hairball-style! iieuw!

    at a local grocery shop, they even sell potted wheatgrass especially for cats to chew on! :)
