    I always wanted to pay someone to drink ipecac & ride a spinning amusement park ride, creating an endless chain reaction of vomiting.

    I've heard they eat it if they have an upset stomach and subconsciously feel the need to vomit, but I don't know if that's true. My dog eats grass and leaves all the time and rarely pukes it up; I think he just likes to eat things.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    From what i recall, sometimes they cannot produce a hairball (due to shortage of hair), but the hair they have licked up does occasionally irritate the stomach. Eating grass apparently helps them get rid of that.

    I always was told it's their medicine or, it tastes like bananas to them.

    I think it's something to do with fur balls and their digestive track and a way how they clean themselves out.
