Every year we re-do our Catio Cat Garden. We spent a few weeks redoing the plants. We researched what plants were "cat safe" for the garden and what they would like. The cats go crazy when we first bring in the plants and grasses. They eat too much the first day and barf some of it up. But that stops quickly and then they enjoy having a little nibble every day. The Cat Grass is the most popular and everyone here enjoys a few nibbles. This Cat garden was created in our small catio space. The Furballs do no go outside because we live in an area with a lot of coyotes and hawks. All five of the Furballs love the outdoor space and spend a lot of time there during the day. Small indoor Cat Gardens can be created with things like wheatgrass, oats, barley and herbs like basil, sage, parsley etc. You just have to experiment. But do make sure the plants are safe for cats. Many plants are toxic for cats. Please visit Toxic and Non-Toxic Plants | ASPCA hhttps://www.aspca.org/pet-care/animal... I did want to add that lavender plants itself isn't toxic to cats and I only see the furballs smell it never eat it, but formulations from the plant can be. Lavender essential oils can be deadly for your pet because of its concentration. Also as someone pointed out Aloe is on the list for being mildly toxic to cats but I have found this debatable. According to the ASPCA the gel is considered edible. I have been advised to try it on Merlin's tummy wound. (The Cat in the Onesie.) It didn't really help but I saw no reaction or illness and i know he licked it off a number of times. I was using it straight from the very plant in this video. However it was messy and really yucky tasting!
See below for the list we used when we went shopping. Not all these plants are available of course, depending on where you live and what time of year it is.
