Grass seed grew well in en-suite window
Having read previous reviews, I wasn't sure if the grass would grow, but I wanted a new bowl anyway, and liked this one.
I planted and watered the seeds, then I placed the bowl in my en-suite window. I was amazed at how well the grass seed grew within 10 days. When it was around 2" tall I moved the grass to the lounge play area for my cats. Only 1 cat showed a little interest and nibbled at 2 blades of grass. Within a couple of day the grass went limp and turned brown - I guess this is because I moved it.
My cats are are indoor cats, so they are not used to eating grass. They may have shown more interest it if it hadn't have died so quickly. Like most plants, I suspect the change in the environment contributed to it dying so quickly.
If I purchase another one, I will be inclined to grow the grass seeds in the lounge window next time, where the cats are allowed. They can then investigate and see the grass grow, and hopefully eat some before it dies.
Grew well, brown within a week
This grass grew really well. We planted it one Saturday, put it in the living room window, and it was 6 inches tall and vibrant green two weeks later. A week after that, it's already turned brown and limp, and it's never been used. KitKat sniffed at it when we showed it to her, and has sniffed around it a couple of times since, but hasn't show much interest otherwise (though I read they only eat grass if they feel the need to vomit, so that's probably a good thing). I was very pleased with this purchase at first, but I'd hoped it would last much longer. As it is, I'm not sure whether to bother with replacement seeds, so we might just have a new bowl instead.
Great bowl but cat won't touch the grass!
My cat - a 7 year old Burmilla - was forever eating the grass in my garden but he'd stopped recently, so I thought I'd treat him to this item when it was in the sale. The ceramic bowl is gorgeous - really nice and wide but not too deep, and has stylish cat design on it - and I'm now using it as a water bowl. And growing the grass was easy and very quick (basically tip the entire pack of grass and some sort of soil equivalent) and water. You'll have a good crop within a few days. However, my cat won't touch it. Showed no interest whatsoever. He can be fussy, so I gave to a friend for her cat, but they're not interested either! Shame as I know it's good for them but sadly been a waste of effort...
