The Subscription Box: PetPack (for cats)
Once again I had a helper for the unboxing.
And what a big help he was…

The box included an information card with a list of items and a monthly message.
Petstages Fresh Breath Mint Stick – Value $2.39
Petstages Plaque Away Pretzel – Value $2.39
These are both dental treats. Cats are supposed to be enticed to chew on them and they are supposed to help the cats’ breath and to remove plaque. I am crossing my fingers Mr. Kitty will chew on these a lot because he has dental issues (but his IBD medications make it a bad idea for him to have a dental cleaning under anesthesia).
Ack, Monkey! Let’s try that again.
Polydactyl Cats Popcorn Square – Value $4.99
I didn’t realize it at first but you are supposed to remove the bag. There is an unbagged photo of this (with a cat) below, though. I have seen these in cat boxes before. Polydactyl Cats has a lot of cute food-inspired cat toys.
Waggers My Little Lion Cat Treats in Chicken (2.65 oz) – Value $3.14
These were popular – even Monkey ate one and he is usually not interested in treats. They are what I would call semi-moist in terms of texture and they are made in the USA.
I (Heart) Pet Head Fizzy Kitty Mousse Cat Cleaner (6.7 fl oz) – Value $3.78
The price quoted above is a sale price (more than $5 off regular price). This is a no-wash sort of shampoo, where you spray it on the cat, rub it in a bit, and wipe it off. I was in need of something like this, actually, for the days when Mr. Kitty smells a little or if (God forbid) Madison ever needs a bath. So this product is a win.
And now for what you’ve all been waiting for…
Madison was not in the mood for photos. But I can usually get him to show himself for treats.
Monkey investigates the pretzel.
Sneaky bites the mint toy.

Mr. Kitty was having a good old time with the popcorn toy (here it is out of the bag). He was rolling all over it. Since he is an almost-12-year-old cat, I was really happy to see him having so much fun with a toy.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $17 for the February 2016 PetPack for cats. Even if you add the extra $5 from the MSRP of the cat shampoo, that is quite a bit below the cost of the box plus shipping. I know there weren’t any items missing because I received everything listed on the information card. Although I liked each item, I would have to see an increase in value before I can recommend this subscription.
What do you think of the March 2016 PetPack? Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?
