Cat Grass Bed DIY

My rescue cats, Luna and Cherry are my constant companions. They’re always nearby to give a nuzzle or a purr. They give me so much happiness, and I love to spoil them in return! I’m always making new things for them (like this Cat Grass Bed DIY) and I buy them good food with real ingredients like Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® Longevity Chicken with Chickpeas & Salmon Recipe.

Healthy living is a priority in my house, so I always read the labels and ingredients. This applies to food, beauty and household products and even cat food! Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® Longevity Chicken with Chickpeas & Salmon Recipe contains Real U.S. farm-raised chicken as the #1 ingredient, plus real salmon. The recipe is crafted with a real superfood blend for lifelong nutrition with a focus on your cat’s heart, mind and body.

I feed my cats both dry and wet food. Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® Purrfect Entrees™ Sea-Sational Florentine™ Recipe is the perfect companion to the Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® Longevity. My girls loved it, especially the sauces! It’s made with real wild-caught salmon and veggies in a culinary sauce.

All Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® Purrfect Entrees are grain free with no ground corn, wheat, soy poultry by-product meals or fillers. There’s also no artificial flavors, colors or artificial preservatives.

After finding Cherry lying in one of my indoor planters, I figured it might be time to give my girls some greenery of her own! This Cat Grass Bed DIY can be used to hold artificial grass or you can grow real cat grass inside of it. The bed is constructed out of cedar and the modern design works with many decors.

    Thank you for sharing the tutorial! Find this post right when I’m thinking about making/buying a new bed for my cat. He grows up and the old one is too small.
