Psst! Hey...Want Some Cat Grass?


Notice the grass blades already on the floor!
The Hubby is a whiz at growing cat grass, or wheat grass.  He's got a sprouting jar, where he pours in the wheat berries, then swishes water around.  After a few days of that, the baby sprouts are big enough to be placed in soil, then he hides his 'garden' way up so no cat can graze until the blades are long enough.

Chuck was on this garden as soon as it was set on the floor, and he pulls the blades out as he munches.  We are lucky to have many old-timey planters in the house; this one appears to be perfect for this application. Angel, for some reason, is avoiding this garden, and I had commissioned it just for her because I thought she was suffering from a hairball.  

Goes to show, that what I want...and what the cats do...are often very different things!

  8. I would pull the whole thing out!

    That's probably why we never get any cat grass. :-(
