Why do house cats eat grass if it makes them get sick?

    It doesn’t actually make them get sick; that’s an incorrect assumption on our part. Cats eat both digestible and nondigestible food because they can’t separate it (a lot of fur gets ingested too through grooming). As a result, they need to get the nondigestible food out of their system, though pooping it out may cause obstruction and damage to their digestive tract. So, they eat grass to induce vomiting, which allows them to get rid of fur, bones, or other matter that’s stuck in their stomach. The only time to watch out for grass-eating is if there are pesticides on them.

    It is a natural process by which they get rid of furballs and stuff that they don’t want to poop out. This grazing is perfectly natural, and nothing to worry about.
