I picked up some live cat grass for my kitties, but they are not interested, so I was curious to know if I'm able to feed it to my sulcata tortoise?

I am no expert, and this is just my guess: I think its ok because if you go to The Tortoise Table, they said its ok to feed, just not the seeds. I give it to my tort and it seems fine. But again: I am no expert.

Yes. Your tortoise can eat it. Its sprouted wheat grass.

If you keep it watered and sitting in a window sill it will keep growing back. I hold it over the food pile and trim some onto the pile. I can get 8 or 9 cuttings from one plot.

How many times ideal for hatchling sulcata to eat cat grass in a week? I have very limited source of other grass since im in the city.

They should get some grass every day.
