yesterday, i saw my cat eating some leaves of our lemongrass plants in our yard. minutes before that, some stray cats have already done eating some leaves too. i let them eat that since we don't use them much in cooking. i'm not really surprised to see them eating that plant cause my cats before and some other stray cats used to eat lemongrass from that plant too.

There are so many cats that eat grass rough in small amounts on a regular basis, which is nothing but aims to stimulate them to bring up food that has been digested. Usually, the grass is eaten by the cat will spit back very quickly and vomiting are covered or enclosed by the cat's saliva foaming and sticky. Though I don't know whether cats like to eat lemongrass or not.

Yes, I notice that they also throw those grass out. It's like they are just cleaning their tummy...

some plants are not safe for cats to eat of course. They eat them anyway. I would say plant something safe out there like cat grass for they love that. In ways though the cat grass in the usa is just grass I think. I never knew that in ways until I found the real stuff out here in europe. They eat grass to get the hairballs out but, they eat plants because they are as crazy as they are cute. That however is not on the list of things they should eat but, really you can not stop them when it comes to taking over your garden out there. grin.

My cat eats this too and I think it is because he wants to make his stomach clean well this is what his veterinary told me, my cat is very weird compared to other cats, he eat raw cucumber, raw and cooked beetroot, raw potatoes, green leaves, and many other vegetables too, he is more vegetarian than non veg.

Cats often chew on grasses, they seem to need some greens in their diet. If you have inside cats you can buy a pot of grass just for them.

Cat eats grass because there are worms in cat's stomach. If you observe them, they will vomit the grass after some time. They prefer to be at direct sunlight and looks lousy. In such times, they won't prefer to take more food also. These are told by my mom, when I was a child. There may be some scientific facts, but I am not sure. I just remembered when you talked about. Regards, Thank-s
