If your indoor cat always has her eyes on the outdoors, but you're not in a situation where you can let her wander, give her the next best thing: a little patch of grass that's all her own! With the proper care, you'll be able to keep this grass green and growing for a long time.

Things You'll Need:

  1. New litter box
  2. Litter tray
  3. Potting soil
  4. Sod
  5. Knife
  6. Electric drill and drill bit
  7. Fun flair

Step One:

With your electric drill and drill bit, create 6-8 drainage holes in the bottom of your litter box.

Step Two:

Roll out the sod. (It helps to either do this outside or over a plastic drop cloth as it can get messy!)

Step Seven:

Place litter box on top of litter tray and then add some cuteness! We added pinwheels (kitty loves to bat them) and some toy mice.

Water grass every few days or as it seems to get dry.
