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!
