One thing my cat LOVES is grass. She often times rushes out the door when I open it just to eat a few sprigs of grass. Callie is an indoor kitty who is allowed supervised outside time. So I try to prevent her from rushing the door when I open it as much as possible.
Some of the things I do to prevent this behavior are:
- Being alert and prepared for her when I open the door.
- Giving her supervised time outside on her leash and harness.
- Providing her with indoor cat grass.
The main reason Callie wants to run outside is simply to eat some grass, so I've found that by providing her with some indoor cat grass helps keep her grass cravings at bay. She seriously loves to eat grass.

Yuppy Puppy City Kitty recently released a new product for cats - their City Kitty Garden. It's a kit with everything you'll need to grow your own indoor grass for your cat. Even if you don't have a green thumb, the City Kitty Garden makes it easy to grow grass for your cat to munch on.
The City Kitty Garden includes a container to grow the grass in, a tray to catch excess water, soil, and oat seeds. The grass sprouts in 3-4 days and is ready for your cat to eat within a week. Once my City Kitty Garden grass sprouted, it wasn't long until the grass several inches tall with lush, green grass.
Is It OK for Cats to Eat Grass?
There is no evidence that grass is harmful for your cat. While experts have not come to a conclusion as to why exactly some cats like to eat grass, many believe that eating grass is beneficial to cats. There are several theories on the benefits of grass for cats including:
- It acts as a laxative. Some believe that grass helps constipated kitties pass stool more easily.
- Helps with indigestion.
- Grass contains folic acid which is which is an important vitamin responsible for producing hemoglobin.
- Helps eliminate hairballs naturally.
City Kitty Garden
When YPCK Pets asked us to try the new City Kitty Garden that they released recently, I was all for it. I already know Callie is a fan of cat grass and that she was probably going to appreciate a new patch of greenery to munch on.
The City Kitty Garden took about 5-6 days to grow completely. It grew fast! I offered the grass to Callie and she began munching away voraciously. She absolutely loves it!
I offer her a few bites of grass once or twice a day. I try to monitor her grass intake because I don't want her to eat too much and throw up. She seems to overindulge herself with the stuff at times.
