You probably remember the farmer’s market treat our furballs (read: children) got last week. Welp, after seven (+) days, the grass still stands. We almost can’t believe it. In the past, the kitties have dined on the quick, last-minute-checkout-lane PetSmart grass, and it’s usually long gone before the next morning. And not because Maddie and Libby had their fill. Rather, the leafy stems quickly turn brown and go kaput before you have a chance to water it again.
And while the grass has survived over a week of kitty noshing, we’ll admit that it’d seen better days. So I pulled our half-eaten grass out of it’s plastic container, plopped the cube of roots into a small glass vase we had on hand, and gave it a new home. Quick, easy, and free. A little trim using regular ol’ office scissors brought the grass back in full force.
We’re thinking this new treat might have to be a regular purchase in the Vargo household. With the sheer joy in Libby’s face, how could it not? Not only does it look fresh and pretty on a windowsill, but it was only 2 dollars. 2 dollars, people. You could find that in quarters between the couch cushions. It’s a done deal.
