It has been found that dogs and cats use certain kinds of grass and leaves as medicine. So, if you find your pet cat is nibbling grass, it might be ill.
But, not always. It is possible that the cat has discovered some deficiency in its body. By eating grass, it is supplementing its regular diet with vitamins or minerals in the grass. Actually if you pay attention, you will notice that the cat does not eat grass the same way as it normally eats food. It keeps sniffing at different leaves and blades of grass as if it were hunting for something. And the animal begins eating only after it has found the right one. This means that it instinctively knows which is the right medicine.
