Dogs and cats eat grass - but why do they do it?
On our daily walk this morning, my little dog Kiko stopped and did something strange: she started eating grass. There was some new growth of green, leafy blades of grass beside the path, and she stopped and began to eat it hungrily. She must have eaten half a handful of grass before she was willing to move on. I've also seen my pet cats eat grass: they seek it out and chew it, just like Kiko did today.
