How to grow cat grass!

grass

I think that all cats in the world love cat grass. It is full of vitamins, it is crunchy and fresh! You can either buy pre-packaged cat grass in supermarkets and at the vets or you can grow it yourself. The big secret is that “cat grass seeds” are actually simple oat or wheat seeds! So, all you need is:

– Potting soil

– Oat seeds

– Plastic pot

– Water

I normally first soak the seeds in water, in a pot, on a paper towel for a free days to get the growing. Once you see that the seeds start to grow, transfer them to your pot with soil and water it. I would say that it takes a week for the grass to grow.

You can also plant the seeds directly into the pot (without soaking them first), but then cover the pot with plastic wrap to speed-up the growing!

Do you grow your own cat grass? What are your tips?

New Whiskas commecial

Whiskas just launched a new adorable commercial in France. To summarize the plot for you – the ad starts with two, cute, baby pumas (leopards??) playing and exploring the back yard. Then they run inside the house and turn into adorable British Shorthair kittens. The idea is that Whiskas brings your kitten’s wild side out 😉

Now, I am not a fan of Whiskas food (for it is very low in meat) but their commercials are sooo adorble! What do you think?

Cat-paw-cuteness!

Is there anything cuter in the world than cat paws? I don’t think so. I am sure you will love this Tumblr, that collects cat-paw-scans from all around the web! Cuteness!

Back in the days when Brucy was a cute kitten…

“It is a very inconvenient habit of kittens (Alice had once made the remark) that whatever you say to them, they always purr.”  ― Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There

I decided to dedicate today’s post to the time when Brucy was only a small kitten. Brucy’s mommy is a common French race – Chartreux (similar to British Shorthair), known for their calm and quiet character. You may have already realized from reading about Brucy that “calm and quiet” is the exact opposite of her character. So I believe that her wildness comes from her father (unknown), who was a European race.

Brucy joined our family at the age of 3 months. She knew how to use the toilet already, but struggled with eating dry food. After a few days of adaptation and mixing dry and wet food with tuna juice – she started eating well and gaining weight. Small tip: if your cat refuses to eat (because of stress, new food..) try starting with wet food at room temperature (it smells stronger) with bits of tuna or chicken. Don’t forget that until your cat is sterilized, he/she is considered a kitten and must eat appropriate food. Kitten food has a lot more calories and vitamins essential for his/her development and growth. Brucy’s favorites included: Almo Nature, Royal Canin Kitten Instinctive, Science Plan Hill’s Feline Kitten.

From day one, Brucy showed her “wild” character, destroying books, plants, wires, eating all the food accidently left lying around and drinking water from the tap. So do not be fooled by her cute and adorable looks – “trouble” is her middle name 😉
