Meowbox Subscription Box Review – May 2016
Meowbox is a monthly subscription box for cats filled with fun, unique toys and natural, grain-free, organic, or locally-made treats.
They write your cats’ names on the lid. I love this little touch!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The information card this month had information about spaying and neutering cats (it’s “kitten season” now) and a URL to find out more information about some of the products from the box. There was also a discount code for cat furniture from The Refined Feline!
Amazing Pet Products Leopard Ball with Removable Feather – Value $2.50 (?)
I can’t find this online (it’s unfortunately one of those things that is difficult to search) so the value is a guess. Feathers are popular with my crew and these seemed to be attached pretty well.
Mauve Moose Catnip Strawberry – Value $4
Monkey enjoyed this so much I would seriously consider buying the basket of 10. He wouldn’t stop licking it!
Eco Plant Pals Chris Catnip – Value $2.99
This will take awhile to get started. I will have to put it somewhere Monkey can’t get to it. Let’s just say there have been incidents when I had catnip plants in the past…
Feline Greenies in Savory Salmon (2.5 oz) – Value $1.95
We’re just finishing up a bag of Feline Greenies in another flavor. I am sure these will be popular as well. I don’t know that I think they really clean cats’ teeth, but the cats seem to like them so it’s all good.
Foxy Tricks for Cats Wand Toy – Value $10.36
These are handmade in Poland. My kitties like a good dangly toy on a stick and they had fun with this.
Madison investigates the feather toy.
Madison actually was interested in the wand toy, but it was difficult to capture that in a photo.
Monkey liked the wand toy.
And he eventually caught it. He seemed to like the string more than the dangly part.
He also claimed the strawberry…
…which he licked until it was wet, wet, wet.
It is really hard to capture the second a cat catches a toy like this in a photo.
I did get this one of Sneaky from behind.
And then there was this. Which was a total gimme. I knew she would bite the wand.
Even Mr. Kitty was interested in this toy.
Although he also kind of just wanted to sit there and stare at me.
But, I got two pictures of him with his eyes open so I call that a win!
Verdict: I calculated a value of $21.80 for the May Meowbox. That is pretty low considering the cost of the subscription. This box really needed a few more items to bring the value up. I’d encourage the people behind Meowbox to explore Etsy offerings a bit more fully because I’m sure there are artisans who would be excited to get their products in front of a wider audience, and my cats liked the two Etsy toys best out of everything in this box.
What did you think of the May 2016 Meowbox? Do you subscribe to any cat boxes?
