My friend said I could try growing a pot of cat grass for Timothy to eat, never really thought about getting this so I wanted to ask. Have any of you fed cat grass and if it is safe, how often can he eat it? Is it like an occasional treat or does it not matter :) Any tips or advice for growing any other grass indoors like barley or wheat would be appreciated as well.. think I'll read about it some more and see if this is something I can try.

Similar question, what about real grass patches? I know they sell them for dogs, wondering if a rabbit could use it too. Like used for digging and eating or also as a bathroom 🤔

We have grown grass on windowsills for years. Normal people have house plants, we have grass... Great for bunnies but introduce very gradually like you would any fresh food. You can get two crops out of it, then it has to be dumped as it goes manky. I wouldn't get grass patches, they may be treated with fertiliser and it would make a big mess.

Awhile back I grew some oat grass for Pancho! He really liked it. It said it was for cats but since it was just pure oat grass it was okay for Pancho to eat.

There is a thing called a grass diet, only fresh grass and hay. so it should be safe depending on the grass
