Presents for Loki

Loki received a treat today: Cat Grass! (Aren’t I a good mum?) I randomly found it at the markets today and although I wasn’t sure if he’d like it or not, I figured for $5.00; he eats everything else - there’s a fair chance he’ll eat this too. I took the chance.
Took him about a minute to decide it was a good snack *phew!* I’ve never had cat grass before but I hear its good for indoor cats to give them added nutrients that they would normally get outside and for helping with their digestive system. There doesn’t seem to be any concrete information to say whether grass is needed or beneficial for cats, but  I’d rather Loki eat something harmless like grass than his usual snack of cords and sticky tape.

I split the bunch into two pots. My plan is to have one outside and one inside so I can alternate them when he eats it all and give the grass a chance to grow back. Have any of you tried cat grass or any of the cat related plants? What about catnip? Does it make your kitties go hyper? I’d love to get Loki some, but I shudder to think of him even MORE crazy than he already is!

    That gif is so awesome. I have a cat and I’ve always wanted to get her cat grass. Maybe I’ll try to find some and try it out!

    My cat ignores cat grass completely and goes on eating my pot plants instead (only the harmless ones, luckily). Catnip does make cats a bit mroe crazy and hyper, but it depends on how much you give to them. I found that cat toys which have catnip inside are okay - your cat will love the toy but not go too hyper. I found with all four of my cats the amount of catnip inside the toys is just about right.
    P.S.: I love your photos! So cute!
