My First Kitty Grass by Lucy Maud

Mommy brought home a new thing that all the big kitties went crazy for as soon as she called, "Kitty grass! Kitty greens!"

There was a lot of meowing. I didn't know why. So much commotion for something that didn't smell like canned food!

Everyone gathered around the new stuff and chowed down. I waited until everyone else was done before I was brave enough to see what it was.

My new big friend Suzette showed me how to sniff it first.

She helped me understand the importance of sniffing the dirt and all the "green-ness" first.

It kinda smelled like someplace I used to be once but I can't remember where. Mommy's pant legs smell like that when she comes in the door after gardening sometimes.

The smell tickled my nose a bit. Suzette said that meant it was good!

Then Suzette showed me how to nibble on the green stuff that Mommy called "kitty grass".

"Bite it down at the bottom," Suzette said, "So it doesn't poke you in the nose."

I'm so glad she was here to show me how.

I wasn't too sure how it was going to taste. But Suzette was eating it so I decided to be brave and try it.

After my first taste, I had to sit back and just think about how it tasted.

Did I like it?

Should I take another bite?


I decided that I DID like it!

Suzette kept watch for any danger or wild animals that might pounce on me while I really chowed down on the yummy greens.

I was eating and moving so fast that I am a blur in this photo.

Wow it was good!

After I was all done with my first kitty grass snack, I was tuckered out. It was such an exciting adventure that I had to go sack out in my furry heated bed.


Mommy! I'm tryin' to sleep here! Go away and let me dream of more kitty grass!

The End

  19. What a cute and creative post, Cindy! Perfect "kitty talk" to go with the photos!

    I guess the grass must be akin to catnip?

    I was away last week, after my show, visiting my father in South Carolina, so I'm late in making the rounds. Hope all is well!

  20. Too cute! I loved it.

    Cindy, I am so enjoying all of your garden posts. I have a long wait yet for my garden to show signs of life - so thank you for sharing yours!! I loved your post about your grandmother's poppy seeds - and how much she meant to you. I have my fingers crossed that those seeds will turn into beautiful flowers!

  21. Lucy, I think grass is the best!!!! In summer,Mom picks fresh grass and feeds it to me a blade at a time. I have her so well trained. Heehee

  24. Hi there, Lucy Maud... Kate (of 'Kate Smudges') left me a note about your blog. Well, actually it was from her dog, Lytton, who visits my 'Dog's Eye View' and with whom I've struck up a long-distance friendship.

    Lytton points out that we share a name, in common. The only difference is that I am hyphenated, with an 'e.' ('Lucy-Maude').

    Despite that whole canine/feline distinction, I share with all your feline family, a love of tender, green shoots. Guess I'll have to wait until spring. My human can't grow kitty grass for myself or my four feline siblings, since they have access to every area and window of our tiny abode. They often munch on lettuce, which they seem to enjoy... me? Not so much.

    You, and your humans, have a very interesting blog. I'll come back as often as my human will allow...


  25. Sweet, and they get along so well. Anna :)

  26. Hi Cindy, what a lovely blog you have. Your cats are really adorable!!!! Your photography is beautiful.

  27. Cindy - Lucy has grown into a beautiful little girl! Just remembering the first posts about her! She's found a great home! :)

  28. The catchildren at Sunflowerhill are glad you enjoy your catgrass, Lucy Maud. Now they want their mother to seed some more, as they plan to eat the first potfull right down to its roots!

  29. What great shots. I also have 4 cats but have not tried "kitty grass." Guess I may have to try it!
    Great to find your blog. Drop on over and visit me sometime!

  30. Our cat Max loves cat grass too..
    You can buy grass seeds and grow the grass yourself, it is less expensive.
    cheers Gisela
