The earth beneath your feet provides you with food and water. It gives you a surface to sit, stand, walk, run, swim, climb, play, and build on. It also provides you with something very surprising - electrons. When you touch the ground with your bare feet or body, the electrons flow into you. This is called being “grounded.” Outdoor cats
The earth beneath your feet provides you with food and water. It gives you a surface to sit, stand, walk, run, swim, climb, play, and build on. It also provides you with something very surprising - electrons. When you touch the ground with your bare feet or body, the electrons flow into you. This is called being “grounded.” Outdoor cats know this very well which is why, once earthed, they rarely adapt to being an indoor kitty.
The earth’s surface has a virtually limitless supply of mobile electrons that gives the ground we walk on (as well as lakes and oceans) a natural negative electric charge.

The earth’s surface has a virtually limitless supply of mobile electrons that gives the ground we walk on (as well as lakes and oceans) a natural negative electric charge. When you touch your body to the ground, it dissipates static electricity and extraneous environmental electrical charges that are on you. At the same time, you receive a charge of energy in the form of free electrons and your body synchronizes with the natural frequencies of the earth. Animals know this instinctively and crave the connection. Kittens react with excitement the moment they are introduced to grass. Even a senior indoor cat who has never roamed free on earth will respond enthusiastically at being connected with earth for the first time.
In our modern society, we no longer sleep on the ground or walk barefoot everywhere we go, like our ancestors did. We wear shoes and live in houses that shelter us from the elements but in doing so, we’ve disconnected ourselves from this important source of electrons. In the same breath, we decided it's fine to do this to our domesticate

We wear shoes and live in houses that shelter us from the elements but in doing so, we’ve disconnected ourselves from this important source of electrons. In the same breath, we decided it's fine to do this to our domesticated animals and force them to forfeit the connection for our pleasure.
As long as you are grounded, your body continues to absorb enough electrons to maintain the same electrical potential as the earth. This amount of electrons varies significantly between people and cats, depending upon their lifestyle and activity, and it is impossible to measure.
Suffice to say, the more the better.
Providing your cat with wheatgrass will discourage them from eating your house plants!
“Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.”
If you have a secure set-up that can hold your cat so she can't escape and run away, that's great! You must, however, consider potential hazards. She might escape and run away. She will be exposed to fleas and ticks. He can't enjoy this earthing time when it rains...
Even though the grass outside may be nutritious and edible, it isn't organic wheatgrass. Plus, your outside yard has more than likely been treated with pesticides, weed killer and chemical fertilizer. If it's been rainy, your yard could also have toxic mushrooms that are easy to miss. Yuck! No meow :(
SO easy! We recommend a light watering at night (misting with a spray bottle is best). Place in kitty's favorite sunbasking spot.
DO NOT PUT OUTDOORS IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT. The grass has been cultivated indoors and conditioned for indoors. Optimally, to keep healthy, find a nice sunny spot or use grow bulbs.
TIP! To get twice as much life out of your wheatgrass, put flat in refrigerator at t night. NOT FREEZER!
Great question! If this is just for eating, then yes, there's plenty to go around. When it comes to beds, however, cats are very possessive. They like their scent, and their scent ONLY, on the surface. Unless you know your cats are comfortable sharing, we suggest one crib per baby.
That depends on how many cats you have, how engaged they are with the bed and how much they eat. My kitten, Calypso, dives into the bed headfirst every morning to munch a bunch and play. Then throughout the day, she literally grazes. With proper care, the grass should keep growing and remain healthy for several months. Many customers prefer to switch out to fresh grass every 6 weeks to 2 months to give their cats the new sprouts and a fresh bed.
NOTE: remember - this is a living plant, but one that is getting eaten, played in and slept upon.
Break out the mini lawnmower!
It's not necessary and most cats really LOVE tall grass - all the better to hide and prowl in. Plus, if the blades are starting to look a little dull, a nice trim and a few hours in a sunny spot will rejuvenate. Also, trimming the grass down to about 3 inches above soil will give your baby a new crop to enjoy.
Cats are very intuitive about eating and usually don't overindulge. If yours just can't get enough, they might throw some up, like a hairball. This is perfectly normal. Gross, but normal.
Ideally no. Your cat bed was meticulously grown indoors, protected from pests and pesticides. Wheatgrass can attract fruit flies which are harmless but certainly a nuisance. This tends to happen if you place the bed near a door to the outside which sees heavy traffic - front door, patio door etc.
IF you get fruit flies, here's a simple and safe remedy. Fill a spray bottle with one cup of water and add 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar*. Gently spritz the infested grass when you water it. This will eliminate the problem and the grass will still be safe for consumption. You can also use heavily diluted Organic Neem Oil.
Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is often thought of as a natural cure-all. In small, diluted doses, ACV is safe for healthy felines. However, there are certain caveats to the safety and efficacy of its consumption.
Apple cider vinegar is safe for healthy cats. Giving your cat 1-2 teaspoons of diluted apple cider vinegar can help with constipation, respiratory infections, urinary tract infections, and intestinal parasites. However, cats with underlying health conditions, such as kidney problems, should never consume apple cider vinegar.
