What is cat grass?


“Cat grass” is grown by cat owners to satisfy their cat’s desire to graze on green plants.  Cat grass is usually common oats or a blend of oats, wheat, and rye grass.  It is sold at pet supply stores and garden centers. 

Cat grass is easy to grow.  Sow the seeds in a 6- to 8-inch-diameter container filled with fresh potting soil.  Sprinkle the seeds generously and uniformly over the surface and cover lightly with additional potting soil.  Water the soil thoroughly and set the container where it will receive bright light.  When the leafy growth is about 2 inches tall, place the cat grass in a location where your cat will find it.  Start new containers of cat grass every few weeks to guarantee a fresh supply for your cat.
