Would you consider yourself to be more of a cat person than a doggy lover? Then for those of you that prefer the company of your feline friends, DoggieLawn is still a great option for you! Our real grass dog sods provide just the perfect spot for you kitty to lounge upon! And it turns out cats love grass just as much as dogs do! If you’ve ever watched your cat outside on the lawn, you’ve likely witnessed your feline munch on the grass.
But what exactly motivates cats to take a bite out of grass?
Turns out there are a number of reasons are cats eat – and ultimately throw up – grass. PetMD even refers to the plant as a “wheat grass shake for your kitty.” Among other reasons for ingesting grass, this green leaf is home to a vitamin called folic acid; when consumed by our cats, folic acid ultimately leads to the creation of hemoglobin, an essential oxygen-moving protein, the website points out.
KnowYourCat.info suggests that our cats will chomp on grass to ultimately rid themselves of the dreaded fur ball. As grass tends to promote vomiting, this little plant can assist in dredging up anything sticking to their wind pipes.
While our boxed grass is likely too short for your cat to nibble at, consider grabbing one as a place for your feline to relax! And for doggy owners, our dog sod potty patches provide a low –maintenance potty solution. Simply place your dog sod litter box inside your apartment for an outdoor-free experience. Your outdoor dog litter box can easily be used indoors, and picking up your dog’s potty is a breeze since it’s all contained on the dog litter box. We also carry poop baggies that come in a variety of colors and fun patterns to match your stylish pooch!
