Cat Grass helps to prevent Anxiety from being indoors through performing stimulating activities your cat would normally perform outdoors.

Aids Health Maintenance
Rather than feeding cat treats why not offer your cat something that promotes both their mental and physical well being. Cat Grass encourages your cat to exhibit natural behaviours whilst providing a food source which aids their digestion, prevents constipation and UTI’s**.

Cats communicate through scent. Yes, they talk (vocalize) with us, but this is thought to be something cats have evolved especially so they can communicate with humans. Normally, when roaming their territories cats will leave (mark) scents and sniff scents using their vomeronasal organ (or Jacobsons organ) – a scent analyser used to detect pheromones from other cats. In much the same way, cat grass can be especially beneficial during the winter months for cats in a multi cat household. The cat grass can be used as a medium for the cats (like a territory marker) for the cats to communicate via scent, indoors, as they would outdoors. The grass is also a new and interesting scent itself, any cat can enjoy.
