I have a question for all you knowledgeable cat people. My male Hobbs was taken in as a stray when he was about 6 months old. He is about 5 now, and generally an indoor cat. However sometimes I let him out when he sees the dogs in the fenced yard, and cries his face off. But the very minute I let him out, he is off to eat some grass. He will do it for about 5 minutes, and then he stops and plays a bit out there. I dont think it is harmful to him, other than that once in awhile it makes him puke (of course he waits til he is inside to do that) But other than that he is ok. Does anyone know why cats eat grass? And can it cause them any health problems? He is a well fed cat eating hard food and soft food. Thanks.

OOps>>thought I was in a different part of the Forum. Ill ask this in the "Behavior" part! Wish I knew how to delete this!
