Create an all-in-one water bowl and cat grass planter to spoil your favorite feline!
Did you know that I used to work at a veterinary office? My undergraduate degree was actually in Pre-Veterinary Science and for many years I planned to become a vet myself. I’ve always loved animals, but I consider myself very much a “cat person.” There’s something so calming about petting a purring cat, don’t you think? Our cat, Mr. P, is a huge part of our family so my boys recently helped me make him a little cat-friendly water bowl planter!
While in line at the pet store my boys pointed out the cat grasses and catnip plants displayed by the cash register. We decided to pick up one of each for Mr. P along with his food.
How to Make a Cat Water Bowl Planter
Once we were home I was inspired to make a combination water bowl and planter for my new pets. I had a low, wide glass planter that was perfect for the job.
I nestled the catnip and cat grass with some potting soil in the planter and added another smaller glass bowl in between them to serve at the water bowl.
(Update 2018 – I currently buy my cat grass and all other pet supplies from Chewy.com, they have really great prices, excellent customer service, and it saves me the trip to the pet store, I HIGHLY recommend you try them, full review post here!!)
As an added bonus, any water drips from his water bowl just water the plants! No more drippy mess on my floor!
Mr. P is thoroughly enjoying his planter-if you have a super special cat in your house, give it a try. They just love that cat grass!
