Miz Allie Cat Talks About Eating Grass

Mommys have all seen us eat grass...but why do we do it? Some suggestions in my thoughts are:

I sometimes use grass as a laxative to enable me to pass hairballs lodged in my tummy.
I also eat grass to make me vomit up those awful sticky hairballs
I eat grass because sometimes I feel sick and it makes me spits up, getting rid of poisons.
I eat grass to help my itchy and hurting throat.
I eat grass to helps my tummy aches.
I eat grass to add roughage to my diet.

Sometimes I just eat grass because I like the ways it tastes..... there are lots of yummy juices in it...yummy....meow....and mommy says that there are tons of folic acid, a vitamin that is vital to me as it helps in the production of haemoglobin?? Not sure what that is???? Meow..will look that one up...

"A hemoprotein composed of globin and heme that gives red blood cells their characteristic color; function primarily to transport oxygen from the lungs to the body tissues" oh thats what it is...meow...

We need folic acid or if we are deficient in folic acid it would stunt our growth and may cause anaemia. meow!!!

If you are an indoor cat it could be a problem, if you has no access to a garden you will probably find your us nibbling at mommy's houseplants. But mommy's can buy small trays containing grass seeds, just add some water and within a few days we has a lush supply to chew on. meow...puurrrsss.....

And lets face it we know there is nothing cuter than us cats eating grass? Whether we are nudging it gently with our noses or whacking it brutally with our little paws, we always show our appreciation for natural tender grass. As well we should -- grass, in addition to endless entertainment, provides us with valuable health benefits too!! Meow....

Even if we are eating the best cat food in the world, we still may need a little help with our tummys. Tender green grasses help provide this assistance. We are actually biologically programmed to eat grass for this very reason. Meow....

However, this craving for munching on greens can get us in trouble. In the absence of safe grasses, we will often eat anything green we can find, which may include decorative or even poisonous plants. Having a safe alternative planted on the windowsill can save mommy and you a lot of grief. Meow.....

Eating cat grass can also help us in other important ways -- since we likes the varity of mucnching on different tastes.... :) meow...puurrssss....
