    Any recommendations for grass brands for cats?

    I thought it would be easy but as i searched and read reviews about grass that one's grows for indoor cats to eat,there were some negatives-

    I have bought cat grass before, they loved it. no issues. cant recall brand.

    Cat grass is just wheatgrass(or ocasionally oatgrass or, I think either rye or barleygrass, but usually wheatgrass.) You can buy seed and grow it yourself. My brother grew some, and gave it to my cat for Christmas.

    See what happens.

    Haven't heard of flax, interesting. be careful and monitor it. Some cats will eat too much and throw up (my cat is such a cat, sadly.)

    So i grew cat grass made of "ORGANIC BLEND OF WHEAT, OATS, RYE, BARLEY AND FLAX"....this product:


    My 17yo male cat with senior citizen cat health issues.
    Gave him 5 minutes with it, then took it away. To be cautious.
    he loved it...started chasing me around....started hunting where i hid it, he found it. demanded more time with it. Gave him another 5 minutes. took it away again. he cased the whole house looking for it for an hour.

    That was yesterday, today i did the same thing. I believe he threw up once over night. I can tell, he is thinking about the grass 24 hours a day now.

    Any comments? Advice? Experience? He loves eating the grass.
    I thought a cat throwing up after eating grass was nature and helpful---maybe that is not true.
