Hi there.

I'm just wondering those of you who have indoor cats do you provide grass for your cats to graze on?

I've been playing a lot with the flying frenzy toy and I've noticed that they do sometimes tear bits of feathers off and eat them. I know that cats use grass to naturally regurgitate anything like this and I'm concerned that as my kittens are both indoors (at the moment) that they won't be able to do this.

Should I provide them with grass do you think? I know you can buy it online.

Since Raiden gets outdoor walks, he nibbles on the grass in the yard. I've had cat grass for him that he totally ignores. Give it a try! Some cats like grass; some don't!

Sure, in fact I should probably do that more too, it's been a long time since I've done that and it would probably be beneficial to my three. You just have to be ok with green globs of zook on your carpet. But it does clean up easily.

Most local pet stores (around here) has those grasses. I'm not sure I would mail order such a thing.

Thanks.

I know that when I had my other two indoor Burmese when they ever escaped (I'd just dive out and quickly get them back) they immediately started to nibble the grass so it seems that it something they may need.

I'll have a look at the local pet stores and see if I can find any.

Raiden usually eats the grass in order to vomit up something! Sometimes I find blades in his stool! Grass doesn't seem to digest very well.
