Grass & Catnip excerpt
from the Cattery Design
Do not use chemicals or
fertilisers when growing cat grass or catnip
A 'daily essential' for any indoor cat, or cattery cat
Helps cats bring up furballs and
Buy in pots, ready to grow indoors
or sow seeds and grow them yourself. Lasts
between 2–3 weeks, so it is a good idea to buy a packet
of seeds and keep continually sowing new pots.
A 'treat' for cats
Catnip entices the cat to roll around on it and induces a ‘high’ in
cats (but not all) and is a harmless, non-addictive perennial (grows back each
year) herb from the mint family.
Buy from garden centres or sow direct from seed. Plant in the
garden in full sun for a constant source of fresh catnip. Dry for
use in toys, or purchase dried catnip.
