I Don't Do Grass

This was my grass that mom planted in my special grass bowl back in February.    It was growing pretty well at the time, but when mom put it in front of me, I just sniffed it, turned up my nose and walked away.

February 2010

This is my grass bowl in March 2010.  Notice the yellow, wilting grass.  I still won't touch it!

March 2010

Mom says she gives up on buying me special things that cats are supposed to love because I totally ignore them.

I don't know what this green stuff is.  Where are my Temptations?

Would you eat this green stuff?  I don't do grass!!!

It's because you are an exceptional cat! You like exceptional things!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I know. I never understand some of the things that humans provide us. Why can't they just get what we like?

I think mum would prefer I chew on that, than her plants in the garden. But I don't care!

Well, at least now you know what that song 'The green green grass of home' is all about.

We'll eat it!

The Island Cats said...

Maybe it wasn't the right flavor...maybe you'll only eat gourmet grass....

That's really funny, Sweet Praline, we LOVE cat grass. Your mom is trying so hard, you have to give her credit for that.

Ha Ha!!!!

You have an unique palate Praline!

The Paw Relations said...

We don't blame you Praline. We don't do grass either.

Eric and Flynn said...

We love grass but we prefer the outdoor stuff. When the Beans go on holiday, dad digs up turfs of long grass from the fields and puts them in seed trays so we can still have our grass when we are purrisoners.

Furkidsmom said...

We've never tried grass so we don't know if we would eat it. Mom always has to put flowers up high so we don't chew those. Mom always says she's going to try the cat grass, but we know she'll kill it before we get to try it.

We'll eat it when it's fresh, but we prefer the grass growing in our little enclosed back space. Maybe you just prefer outdoor grass too?

The Monkeys said...

Deli loves grass but I don't! I'm with you, Praline!

We eat outside grass, when we are allowed outside, but we've never tried that cat grass. At least your mom tried! We often don't like 'cat things' either. MOL

Purrs and hugs,

Hold out for those Temptations, Praline=you're a smart girl!!...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Cory said...

We like it! We like green stuff...but we're kind of strange that way. My momma Ellie could polish that off for you...and steal salad from your mom's plate!

Remington said...

WHAT? Your mommy expects you to eat raw grass? Like right out of the dirt! What does she think you are an animal or something? She needs to wash it and cook it or something! Serve it to you on a really pretty plate with a tall glass of sparkling milk. I can't believe she hasn't done this! Poor Praline....

Busby and Raymond said...

It's nice of your Mom to try! We like cat grass and get a little container of it each week from the farmer's market. Yum.

chezcat1970 said...

We don't like "cat things" either, so mama is not sure if she wants to try cat grass.

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

Too funny! Mom says that looks like it is turning into one of those chia pets!

Margaret said...

Are we supposed to eat grass? I don't even like treats.

Brian said...

Sometimes we like it, sometimes we don't. If the humans go out of their way to make sure we have plenty of it we usually won't touch it!

Mr. Hendrix said...

I'm kind of with you. I don't like the grass when it is fresh and green. I do like it when it is yellow and dying tho. Go figure.
I think your mommy should keep buying you "kitty friendly" stuff until you find ones you like. After all, she should be all about appeasing you descerning tastes.

AttieCattie said...

i do not know if i would like this grass stuff either. my mommeh says she has been thinking about getting me some, but i am not sure... looks questionable.

Noddy said...

Ha! You LITERALLY turned your nose up in the air! :-D Bestest kitteh! :-)

(Grass. Bleh.)

Rusty said...

I like grass a lot, but only if it's out in the yard. I don't like that stringy stuff they grow in bowls. It's like fake grass.

Daisy said...

Harley likes to eat grass, but I refuse to eat even a single blade!

The Crew said...

Hmmmm, I don't know about THAT grass, but I do like the grass Mom buys at the grocery store. And she buys it only for ME, 'cause I'm the only one in our family that likes it.

Our Flip and Shadow would go crazy about it. Jackie might try it, but he isn't so into greens.

Ginger Jasper said...

Your face says it all... mol Hugs GJ xx

Xanthe and Nishiko said...

Oh the dislike on your kitten face! xxx

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Yup, we can tell by the look on your face Prailine - that is not the thing for you!

Mickey,Georgia , Tillie said...

How can you not like grass????
It's OK, Tillie & Mickey will eat it if they come to visit,hahaha

Georgia is not fussy about it either ;)

Sorry that I took liberty with your picture, Praline, but I thought that "Mucho Grassy-us" was just too good to pass up.

You're quite the finnicky girl because most kitties just love eating grass (and then throwing it up afterwards). Maybe you just don't like that second part.

Laila and Minchie said...

We have never had that grass before but we think it looks more appetizing when it's all green.

Sónia Mendes said...

The exact same thing happened to me. One day, my parents brought one of those green things home for me, but I didn't like it either. What was that? Eventually they gave up and just thrown it in the garbage.
