Most cat treats come in a little bag and run out really fast. Whisker Greens™ pet grass is a completely different kind of cat treat! It is healthy, living, and can keep growing for weeks. If your cat has never tried cat grass before, now would be a great time! These plants can help to save your holiday plants from destruction and give your kitty something special of his/her own to nibble on.
Is Cat Grass Safe for Cats to Eat?
Yes, it is! As a treat, cat grass can provide a number of benefits to cats. Since cats don’t have the digestive enzymes necessary to fully digest cat grass, it is a natural source of dietary fiber. It does a great job of helping to keep things moving along in the cat’s digestive tract. The fiber in cat grass can even help dislodge hairballs!
All of those facts aside, you don’t want your cat eating just any grass. Outdoor grass has often been coated with fertilizers, pesticides, and the feces of other animals (disease state unknown). The grass itself may not be harmful to your cat, but all of those “coatings” could make your kitty really sick. If you think your cat might like to nibble on grass, an organically grown, indoor cat grass plant, like Whisker Greens, is a much better choice.
Whisker Greens™ from Pet Grass®
Whisker Greens uses only certified organic wheatgrass for their pet grass. Each plant starts from 100% certified organic wheatgrass seed and is planted by hand in real soil. They grow inside greenhouses away from potential contaminants. Whisker Greens contains important nutrients that could give your cat benefits beyond just dietary fiber:
- Amino Acids
It is easy to take care of a Whisker Greens plant. Simply water the plant(s) twice per week by setting the container in a dish of water. The water will absorb through the bottom of the container into the plant. Indirect sunlight will do for these plants and they can be kept in the refrigerator at night to help them last longer. These plants will stay fresh in your refrigerator for up to 2 weeks! They are the treat that keeps on growing. If you have any questions about Whisker Greens, visit them on their website or on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Vine.

Cinco and Manna Give Whisker Greens a Try!
Cinco and Manna had never had the opportunity to try cat grass before we received our shipment of Whisker Greens. I wasn’t sure how they would react. Obi-Wan, the cat that came before them, had loved cat grass. Each cat is different, though, so you never know what they will think.
Our package of Whisker Greens looked great. It was very neat and clean. The grass was the perfect shade of green and very filled out. Each plant comes potted in a black plastic container and nicer looking cardboard container is provided to go over the black container. The three plants come in a resealable bag that helps keep the plants moist.
When I first pulled out the Whisker Greens to show the cats, they were excited to check it out. I was a little disappointed when they both sniffed it a little bit and walked away. Never to be deterred, I kept taking the plants out of the refrigerator each morning and setting them where the cats could get them. Finally, I caught Cinco nibbling. He has come to really enjoy the cat grass though he declined to nibble in on video for me. I have been seeing him nibble on it several times per day. He loves Whisker Wishes!
Manna has been a little more indifferent. However, when I was trying to get a video of Cinco eating the grass, Manna was not to be outdone! She decided to dive in and show the camera that she can eat cat grass too. I have noticed her over near the Whisker Greens a number of times since then. She’s probably nibbling behind my back. She doesn’t want to admit that Cinco was right about it being good stuff.
