My mature Bengal goes through periods in which he craves greens and I could use some input! It's always in the mornings, early after he wakes up. Normally he is content to stay inside but during these periods, he is persistent (and sneaky) about running out whenever the door is open. He is especially drawn to plants with long thin leaves, like daylillies, but will also nibble on ivies, philodendrons, etc. Of course, he promptly throws ups whatever he gets his teeth on and I know he shouldn't be eating any of these plants. I've tried supplements with different grasses which he hates; I've tried things we eat - romaine, sprouts, etc., but that doesn't do the trick for him either; I've tried the cat foods with greens in them and that doesn't seem to help either. The wheat grass you sprout in trays lasts about a day - he completely uproots it all and makes a gigantic mess. Any other ideas?
