I bought some alfalfa pellets for the first time the other day to try because I see all the posts sayin how great they are for the roses, and the were really cheap so decided to give it a try.Well I opened the bag and started putting it around my roses and was walking back to the bag to get more and my daughters kitten was in the bag munchin away! I never would have thought a cat would like alfalfa pellets, has anyone else experienced this? I had to keep telling all of the cats to leave it alone after the kitten started. They didn't however disturb any of my roses I put it around yesterday, just wouldn't stay out the bag! :)

Cats do eat greens, usually grass to then throw up hairballs. I wouldn't let her eat too much.

Move the mulch and thrown in the pellets, then cover over....more than one way to fertilize our roses!

As Buford says, cats do eat greens, typically grass. You can now buy green kitty crunchy treats. I keep a patch of catmint (nepeta) for my cats. They munch that as well as just roll in it. It's a good companion plant for roses, too.

I only wish my cat would eat my nepeta. But no--he prefers my favorite hakonechloa aureola as his hairball generator of choice.

grief - i have hasd to spray various ornamental grasses (hakenochloa, millium, heliotrichon and panicum) to keep the cat and dogs from munching them to stubs (I use a nasty bitter but harmless alum spray). I even grow a few pots of oats and wheat 'catgrass' for them - but they prefer the good stuff.

I guess ya'll are making it seem more understandable, I did hide the alfalfa under the mulch and they haven't bothered it yet, although the last time I put out bone meal I saw where something dug a little hole, didn't see who it was in action, but they obviously didn't find what they were looking for because it was only done to a couple of the roses :)
