I’d been searching for cat grass seeds in a desultory fashion for a little while, with the intention of having a number of pots to rotate to give each time to recover from the kitty carnage, but nothing had really come of it.

That is until we were at the cat shop and I impulse-bought a kit! And 20% off! Clearly TheUniverse was trying to tell me something (we will ignore the fact that it was infinitely more expensive than a packet of seeds would have been).
