What is the reason why cats eat grass then throw up afterwards?

Why do they throw up after doing so? How can I address this problem?

1 Answer

Grass isn’t really digestible to cats and it’s thought to have very little nutritional value. Cats eat grass in order to make them sick in order to clean out their digestive system. Eating grass helps them to throw the hairballs back up and prevent indigestion. If your house cat has a particular taste for houseplants- he may be eating these because there’s no grass available. Providing commercial cat grass available in pet stores may give your houseplants a much needed respite.
