Mama 1, Felines 0

People say, curiosity kills the cat. However, sometimes (only sometimes) human ingenuity wins the day. For years we've seen the green plastic food cover on top of the old oven. It was there, day in day out, not covering anything of significance, just a couple of oven trays. Oh boy....were we duped!
Do you notice some green blades poking out of the green food cover? We didn't!!!
.....until Mama took it off. It's the cat grass and she has kept it under wraps, so to speak.
Take a closer look....yummy and delicious succulent cat grass. The colour is a bit light as it hasn't seen sunlight.
There....it's been transplanted to a bigger pot with potting soil and all.
It is now enjoying much needed sunlight so that the colour will darken as it can now make chlorophyll.
Nicole's 2-cent: Yeah...you win this round, Mama. Don't know how long it will stay that way. I'm drooling..... purrrr *giggles*

HeeBum,
It's not easy as the felines love eating the grass. Thus the hide and seek tactic Mama employed. purrrr *giggles*

Sandy said...

Cat grass !! I might try to grow some, it looks very pretty and it might be useful in case a cat drops by at our place ^^

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Uncle Adem,
That's why my Mama had to trick us all. It worked though or else the grass won't have a chance at all. purrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Tante Sandy,

the critters in The Cottage

Kitcaboodles said...

Ooh we did this for our cats... they love their grass box! I think they also like the fact that it's grown especially for them!

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Brad,
The hardest part is to hide the grass while the seeds germinate and then grow to a certain height before you expose them to the felines. purrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Cottage Felines,
Oh yes...conniving Mama I have. We'll get our revenge soon. purrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Kitcaboodles,
Unfortunately Mama doesn't appreciate the green artwork we sometimes throw on the floor. purrrr *giggles*

one of Fae's humans said...

mmmmmm, i bet that's yummy! ....or atleast it would be yummy if i were a cat.

that was really smart of your mom. you guys really gotta give us humans more credit sometimes. ;)

~Covert_Operations'78~ said...

Good job, Mama! The cat grass finally had time to grow! Mama can now look forward to fibrous green cat poop all over the house.

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Fae's human,
It is yummy...Fae and Iggy should have a pot too. purrrr *giggles*

Cat-from-Sydney said...

CO78,
You should hear her scream everytime she opens the door in the evenings. She'll tell Dad, your son/daughter did this...and Dad would clean up. I love Dad. purrr *giggles*

Clooney said...

Whoa...lookin' good! Your Mama did sneak one past you! We still haven't planted the catnip seeds...

Cat-from-Sydney said...

Heya Cloon!
We hate being duped. Your mom can learn a thing or two from mine. But we're wiser now.... purrr *giggles*
