Care & Usage
Though your kitty is a consummate carnivore, she still needs the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants that are found in plants. In the wild, cats get this important nutrition through their grass-eating prey. Domestic cats, on the other hand, may try eating toxic house plants or pesticide-treated outdoor grass to get the greens they crave. It is much safer to provide your feline companion with healthy, organic grass options indoors, like Pet Grass.
Yes! The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) reports that it is completely normal for cats to occasionally munch on greens. Pet parents need to make sure their kitties aren’t dining on toxic houseplants or chemically treated lawns. Instead, Pet Grass is a safe and healthy options for cats. Pet Grass is full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants like chlorophyll and carotene. It makes a great indoor dietary addition for cats.
Nope. You don’t need to worry about triggering gluten allergies if you bring home Pet Grass for your kitty. Pet Grass is considered a healthy vegetable and is harvested before it develops the grain which contains gluten.
Your feline should only be allowed to eat a little Pet Grass at a time, so make sure you don’t put out large amounts before you leave the home for a long period of time. Consider putting out a handful of clippings at a time or a single container of Pet Grass per cat in the household. It is also a good idea to consult your veterinarian for guidance on the specific needs of your special kitty.
Most kitties will get excited and curious when you introduce Pet Grass for the first time and start chomping on it right from the container. However, some cats may be uncertain at first and need a little more encouragement. Try misting Pet Grass with water. Your kitty will lap up the water and realize how tasty Pet Grass is. You can also sprinkle Pet Grass clippings over her food so she can develop a taste for it.
Pet Grass is yummy, healthy, certified organic wheatgrass grown specifically to give your feline family member extra nutrition and a fun activity. The grass is the sprout of the wheatgrass seed (think of it like a bean sprout) and is completely gluten-free. Pet Grass is a great source of natural and organic protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, and antioxidants for your kitty.
When your Pet Grass starts to turn from a healthy, vibrant green into a sickly yellow hue, that usually means one of three things. You may be over-watering your plant, it doesn’t have enough sunlight, or it’s simply reaching the end of its life.
If the blades of Pet Grass are limp and brownish around the edges, you are probably giving it too much water. Try moving your Pet Grass to a place in your home where it can get fresh air that will help it dry out. Hold off on watering for a while. The plant may come back to life; however, if the rot has already reached the roots, then it’s a goner.
If the yellowing starts at the roots, then the plant is begging you for more sunlight. Move the plant to a place in your home where it can get at least a few hours of indirect sunlight a day. The plant will perk right back to life.
Finally, if your plant is over two weeks old, yellowing may simply mean it’s ready to retire. Time to give the old plant the ‘heave-ho and bring in a fresh, new plant for your kitty to enjoy.
Your Pet Grass loves daily, indirect sunshine and a well-ventilated perch. A window sill is a great spot as long as it doesn’t get too much direct sunlight. Also, avoid overly hot locations.
A healthy container of Pet Grass should last about two to three weeks. Please read the care instructions that come with the plant or review them below so you can keep them alive for as long as possible. These little guys can’t be re-potted, and they won’t live forever. When they start to wilt or yellow, you’ll know that their time has come. Throw them away and put out fresh containers. Special Tip: Put your Pet Grass in the fridge at night to extend its life.
How Do I Care For My Pet Grass?
If you’ve purchased a set of Pet Grass containers or are considering putting these fun, nutritious snacks in your home, then make sure you give them the right amount of care so your wonderful feline can enjoy them for weeks at a time.
Like all plants, your Pet Grass will appreciate a gulp of water every once in a while. Give your Pet Grass a drink twice a week by placing the container in a saucer of water. The water will absorb from the bottom of the plant, preventing standing water at the top, which might attract unwanted bugs. You only need to keep the Pet Grass in the water for an hour or two, or until the soil is moist.
