How to Grow Cat Grass from Wheat and Oat Feed – Easy and Cheap - Time lapse

Today I will show you how to grow cat grass and where to purchase the seed. My cats love to go outside in the summer and eat the blades of grass that grow against my house. They then love to come inside and vomit. Sometimes they even vomit it up a couple days later and the grass is still recognisable. Their stomachs obviously cannot handle this grass so I went to the pet store and bought a tiny bag of seed. It cost me about and the cats loved it and they didn’t throw it up. My only issue was the cost, there had to be a cheaper way.

I looked online and wasn’t sure if I could import seeds into Canada and didn’t want to deal with customs and that whole process.

    Thanks so much, am trying to grow grass for my cat and want to make sure I'm doing it right. Cheers

  2. In a meanwhile of 5-7 days, I should keep water it right? How do i know if its too much water or how to tell it just perfect water. Sorry, I have never grown a plant before  :P
