Anyone with a cat knows how much they love to nom on grass. It provides extra fiber to their diet and helps with digestion. But, if your cat is an indoor cat like mine it’s not as easy for them to get their greens. Hugo’s not so great at being on his leash and we don’t have any grass in our little semi-fenced in patio, so we needed a way to bring the grass inside. You can find cat grass growing kits at most pet stores, but instead of the plain white tubs they provide, why not plant the grass in a fun container that can complement your décor?
I found this set of geometric dip bowls at Target for a $1 and thought they would be great for this project, but they needed a bit of color first.
- cat grass seeds
- multi-surface paint (white and whatever colors you want to use)
- paint brush or sponge
- painters tape (or in my case, lint roller sheets)
1. section off the pieces to paint with tape (we didn’t have any at the time so I improvised with lint roller sheets – whatever works, right?) // 2. paint the section white and wait to dry (depending on the paint you may need multiple coats) // 3. paint over the white with the colors you want (I used blue, pink, green, and orange) // 4. plant your grass and let it grow!
I keep the cat grass on our coffee table for Hugo to chew on and he’s loving it!
