A Treat for Kitty



Every time Honey Cat stands near the door to go out these days, and the door is opened for her, she quickly backs up into the house when she feels how cold it is outside.

Honestly, I feel sad for the cat.  She was born in Arizona and now lives in New England. She went from the furnace heat of the desert to the arctic tundra of New England winters.

Saturday, while walking down the aisles of a supermarket, I saw bright green grass in a container. Intended  just for kitties, I put it right into my grocery cart.

Okay, I hated to part with the $3.99 but I figured Honey was worth it.

At first when I put the grass near her food, she looked at me rather disgustedly.  With her "pouty" look, it was like she was saying, "What's this?  I want tuna and you give me grass? The nerve."




She carefully inched her way toward the grass.



At first she thought it was a new toy. She loved pawing after the loose strands of grass.




Finally, she took a little nibble.



Then another. 


Nibble, nibble, nibble.                                                                                                     

       
                                                                                 
What's this?  A mini jungle or what?                                                                                                      
                                              

                                            

Finally, Honey Cat had enough of  the grass and left to take a nap on the softest bed in the house. A Queen has to sleep comfortably, after all .

 She'll be back later for some more of the new green stuff, which turned out to be pretty tasty after all .

DO YOU EVER GIVE YOUR KITTY A TREAT IN THE WINTER?

We don't own a cat, but my mother does. I will have to tell her about the cat grass. Good idea to keep the cats happy through the winter.

I never gave my cat this type of treat, but I was a young girl the last time I owned a cat. That might account for it! :)

Have a great week, Susan!

Blessings,
Karen

Everytime my cat ate a grass salad he hacked up a fur ball :)

My cats liked to feast on a palm tree. The poor thing eventually died. (They preferred it to the cat plants.)

I have a packet of cat grass but have never tried growing it. Maybe I should since Jingles keeps eating the plants. :/ Honey Cat is so sweet. best wishes, Tammy
