I am not sure if this is the right place to post this question, but....
I bought the cat grass that you grow yourself, and gave it to my cats. They both threw up right away, cat grass and saliva etc only. I am not sure if that is what is supposed to happen. It is supposed to be good for them, but that doesn't seem good if they threw it up/regurgitated it? When Brigid was first brought in, she made it out the door one time and went straight to the grass and ate a bit. When I brought her in the next day there was a HUGE hairball. I thought maybee the grass helped bring it up, but now they just throw up the grass. Any ideas? is it good for them, should I try it with them again? Why do people offer it? H-E-L-P!!!!! kitty

Brigid, cat grass does help them regurgitate hairballs. It might just be that they are not used to it. myself do not buy the stuff at the pet stores, I buy seeds (Oatgrass) and grow myself, this grass is easier on their stomachs.

Our winters here are filled with TONS of snow and very cold weather. So, I am going to try the above indoor lawn for my kitties. They love grass. I let them out in my enclosed backyard and the first thing they run to is to eat the grass. And yes they throw it up as well.

I would tend to think you could get it at any farm/garden/tractor supply place, like Agway, Farm and Tractor Supply, Home Depot, etc. Hope this helps. big grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grin
