Cat eating grassCats love to nibble on grass, and home-grown grass is especially nice for indoor or city cats that never have the opportunity to eat fresh grass. To grow your own wheat cat grass:

1. Purchase wheat-berry grains at a health food market. They can be purchased in bulk and stored for up to one year in a dry, cool, dark place. 

2. Sprinkle the grains over a quality, rich soil and place in a sunny window. 

3. Water or mist the grains lightly each day. Soon your seeds will sprout and develop into grass shoots.

What Instructions????? You don't give advice on:

1) What the depth, diameter of a good sized container is for growing cat grass.
2) Whether or not the container should have drainage holes?
3) How high in the container the soil should be before scattering the seeds? (Leaving how much room between soil and top of container)
4) Advising people to water the soil BEFORE scattering seeds on it.
5) How many seeds, tablespoons etc. for a certain size container?
6) Do the seeds need to have a certain distance between them?
7) 1/4" or 1/2" soil to cover seeds with?
8) To gently sprinkle water on the soil covering the seeds.
etc., etc.

Sorry but I'm vastly disappointed in this kind of poor advice from you.

In the past my cats have just ripped the grass out of the ground and that was it for the plant. so they don't get grass any more.

Jenny -- Sounds like the grass you bought was already harvested, but if you want to grow cat grass follow the tips above and use a rich soil.
