Ragdolls are a popular breed of cat. They are known for their long, luxurious fur and loving nature. However, one question often persists about whether or not ragdolls can eat cat grass.


What is Cat Grass?

Cat grass is specifically grown indoors for household pets. Cat grass is not a specific kind of plant, but a grass mixture that is grown from seeds. It’s not to be confused with the grass outdoors on your lawn, which may contain toxic pesticides. The seeds used in cat grass produce cereal grains such as oat, wheat, barley, alfalfa, and rye. You can start your cat’s garden by planting one variety of grass or planting a couple of different types of grasses and see which your cat prefers.

Many Ragdoll owners report that their cat LOVES cat grass and is very possessive over it. Some owners even say their cat won’t let anyone else come near it!

Cat grass can be great for aiding a cat’s digestion. Cat grass is a source of a nutrient called folic acid, which may help improve blood flow.  Cat grass also acts as a laxative to help push out hairballs. It’s also a natural remedy for cats that suffer from constipation.

Why is my cat sick after eating cat grass?

Your cat may vomit shortly after eating grass, as they lack the enzymes necessary to digest it. This is usually nothing to worry about. Allowing your cat to eat cat grass is a good way of helping to expel furballs.

Are There Any Risks Associated With Eating Cat Grass?

There are no known risks associated with eating cat grass, but it’s always best to consult with a veterinarian if your Ragdoll is exhibiting any adverse effects. Some Ragdolls may have allergies to certain types of vegetation, so it’s important to monitor their health closely, particularly if they’re consuming large quantities of cat grass.

They lived to the grand old age of 18 and 17 and they even made the move from London to Australia with me! We now have two Ragdoll cats, Violet and Ocean, and a Maine Coon cat named Eddie, and we love sharing our knowledge of all things related to Ragdoll Cats with you at Ragdoll Cats World!
