Cat Grass (Avena sativa)
3.78 $ 3.78 $ 3.7800000000000002 CAD
Cats like to eat grasses: in addition to containing several vitamins, folic acid and fiber, the grass helps to purge their system and evacuate the hairs that they swallow by licking their coat. And best of all...they leave your precious plants alone during this time.
Plant at any time of year in a small, well-moistened pot.

Psssst: It's important to note that oatmeal for cats differs from catnip, which is a separate plant in the mint family and often causes a euphoric reaction in cats. We also sell catnip!
Blue Vervain (Verbena Hastata)
