Is Your Cat Getting More and More Chubby?

This is Raja, our overweight cat!

Raja started out a reasonably svelte 12 lbs when we got her from a local shelter at age 7. Then, barely 2 years later, she was up to a hefty 15 lbs!

Diet cat foods were no help. Then, I happened to read a book: "Your Cat, Simple New Secrets To A Longer, Stronger Life" and it changed everything.

We invite you to follow our quest for a healthy weight-loss plan for this funny, personable and very talkative cat.

Hopefully, together we can help all our cats live healthier and thinner lives!

Pet Grass - A Healthy, Tasty Treat For Your Kitty!

Lately, we've been looking for ways to offer our Rajah something different to break the monotony of her daily routine.

All she seems to like doing is sleeping and begging us to brush her! Not a very exciting life for her.

Also, she still has rather hard stools and we've been trying to get more roughage into her system.

So, one day, Lynn was shopping at her local Jewel-Osco (which is really Albertson's if you don't live in Illinois) and saw some "Pet Grass / Wheat Grass" in the produce section. It's nice and green and was already sprouted in a throw-away plastic container. Very convenient and healthy-looking.

So, Lynn bought a container of the Pet Grass and put it on the floor where Rajah could easily get to it. Then we both just hoped for the best, since Rajah can be a picky eater at times.

Well, Rajah loves it! She goes over to the Pet Grass several times a day. Sometimes she just rubs her whiskers over it but most of the time she either chews on it or eats some of the grass. It's nice to see her eat this healthy snack since she doesn't really like new foods.

Does it help her hard stool problem? Well, not really, since she doesn't eat enough of the pet grass to make much of a difference. Your cat, however may eat enough of the grass to help with constipation issues.

Do healthy "greens" add much to her dietary requirements? Probably not, but she really enjoys the grass. Since we don't believe in feeding her cat treats, pet grass is the next best thing and she seems to like it a lot!

Does Pet Grass have other health benefits? I have heard that pet grass can help with some feline digestive problems too, but that's mostly anecdotal information, so your results may vary.

By the way, you don't have to buy sprouted grass like we did, you can get Pet Grass Kits or just seeds at your local pet store or online.

Lynn's townhouse doesn't have much light and no real window sills, so it's hard to grow anything indoors, but if you feel you have enough light to grow the grass from seed, that may be a cheaper alternative than buying the grass already full-grown. We just like the convenience of having ready-to-eat sprouted grass and the cost is nominal at $2.99 per container.

The mature grass plant lasts about a week before it turns yellow, but if your house has better growing conditions (i.e. more light) your cat may be able to enjoy a container of pet grass for a longer time.

Bottom line... If your kitty likes greens or is bored with her usual culinary choices, try Pet Grass. He/she will probably enjoy this new side dish and it may help with your cat's digestion and overall health too!
