Well, I found out what the aerogarden is really functional for, a personal cat spa and tanning bed.

I am about to fall over laughing out loud. I so wanted one of those because I never have had enought light to grow herbs indoors in the winter. When I looked at one at BBB, I just couldn't justify the expense. I am both sorry and glad that you experimented for me. I have cats also, and that is exactly what they would do. I have to find a way to email this photo to one of my friends.

Off the subject, but part of this post, we have a big bed of asparagus and after the first two or three years it really isn't much trouble at all, and I agree the taste is so much better than store bought that my son won't even eat the kind I get at the grocery, but you have to hide the fresh from him if you want any.

The cat seems to be smaller in the second photo, so while it makes vegetables and herbs grow, it evidently shrinks animals?

BINGO!!! In spades!!! That's EXACTLY what I was afraid of when I first even contemplated buying an Aerogarden. I have problems even growing herbs in plain clay pots on my windowsills due to the fact that my cats always seem to feel they need "pruning".

I am not a cat person. When a grand uncle next door died and left a whole bunch of pregnant cats we took care of them, neutered them, and got them all homes.

If God is an ailurophile I hope this gets me a check mark on the postitive side when I am sitting before the pearly gates.

But a cat lover I am not.

To get to the point, and I hate doing that, my sil loves cats. We sent her some Chia Cat grass palnters. They are, well, as they say, plantars that grow grass. They are ceramic things that grow grass that cats eat. And they apparently love them and have stopped barfing all over the house.

Why? Heck if I know. But the bottom line is cats will eat young shrubbery. Have heard the explanation that it helps them pass the hair balls which otherwise would come out the front route.

And that is all I know about cats and young vegetation.

Before criticizing a person, walk a mile in his shoes - then you are a mile away and you have his shoes!
