Is your cat shredding your indoor plants or always by the back door trying to get out?
Miss Kitty would be ecstatic to get her own garden patch for laying in, eating grass and nibbling and rubbing on some herbs or flowers.
Choose Plants Which Are Safe For Your Feline Friend
Nothing better for a cat to lounge in the grass and gnaw on it, that is cat heaven! Always look for naturally, organic grown, GMO free (cat) grass seeds like Marley’s Cat Grass (Amazon) to keep it healthy for your cat. Lawn grass (seed) is not recommended for the unknown if pesticides and fertilizers were used in the growing process. Also particular grasses like Saint Augustine has really thick sharp blades which could damage the intestinal walls when eaten.
Besides growing a patch of just cat grass, it can be designed more interesting with adding other plants, flowers and herbs which are enticing, fun and healthy for your kitty kid.
Here is a selection of plants & herbs which are safe for cats:
- Lemon Grass (not as essential oil though)
- Goldenseal (immune system)
- Red Clover
- Lemon Balm
- Lemon Verbena
Safe flowers for your feline garden:
Catnip and Valerian: These two plants I would not make readily available as they loose their effect on a cat when constantly exposed to. It’s better to limit those to once or twice per week for your feline to have most fun with!
Please only use organic soil to avoid exposure of your cat to pesticides and fertilizers, like Nature’s Care Organic Planting Mix (Amazon)
