Cat Behavior: Why Cats Eat Grass

This article will explain about one of the unique behaviors of cats: herding.

One of the biggest mistakes cat owners make is preventing their cat from eating grass. They may think that the grass can upset the cat’s stomach or make it sick.

It’s so cute and funny to see cats eating grass. Eating grass comes naturally, not just for domestic cats, but for wild and feral cats as well. In fact, this natural behavior is an indication that cats are healthy and is something you shouldn’t worry about. And cats really like the taste of grass.

Cats are very adept at finding healthy dietary supplements, one of which may come from grass.

Although the herb has low nutritional value (it only contains fiber), they need it to get rid of poisons. Besides that, this behavior is good for them to relieve stomach aches and inflammation in the throat. Eating grass also helps the cat to cough up hairballs. The herb also contains chlorophyll, a natural remedy for pain, infection, anemia, and skin diseases.

Warnings and tips:

Do not let your cat eat houseplants as some of them are toxic to it. Some cats can’t tell the difference between safe and dangerous plants. It is best if you have grass available in your house to ensure that the grass is healthy for your cat. If necessary, you can add a folic acid supplement to your cat’s food.

Be sure to get as much vet advice as possible when buying a new houseplant.
