Surprise My Pet is a monthly subscription box for dogs that has recently launched a single-cat and multi-cat subscription as well. This is a review of the Multi-Cat box.

As you can see, my usual “helper” was contributing.  Let’s try that again!


Included was a letter detailing the items for the month.


Kong Active Cork Ball – Value $4.50

Sneaky loved this.  Especially the cork part.  She tossed it everywhere and chewed on the cork.  It has held up pretty well so far.

Zanies Lattice Ball – Value $0.60

This was a hit with Monkey.  He likes any little noisy plastic ball.


Supercat Plush Toys + 3 mL Spray – Value $9.99

I think these are adorable.  And they come with catnip spray so you can refresh them periodically.

Laser Chase II from Pet Sport – Value $2.99

Normally my cats are all into lasers.  But this one didn’t work very well.  It had like no power at all and the light was dim and then eventually stopped working.


You are SO helpful, Monkey…


Zuke’s Natural Purrz Tender Chicken Recipe (3 oz) – Value $2.63

We get these often in cat subscriptions.  They are semi-moist and my cats do like them quite a bit so this is a win.  I will never have to buy them, either.

Spry Respiratory and Ocular Support by In Clover (2.1 oz) – Value $5.19

These are new to me.  They contain lysine, which is supposed to help against feline herpes viruses which can affect the eyes as well as the breathing.  I just use them as general treats although Sneaky does have eye herpes as well as asthma, so maybe there will be additional benefits?

Picture time!


Here’s Madison.  It is so hard to take pictures of black cats.  I don’t know how those calendar people do it.


Monkey really likes noisy ball toys.


And this was a huge hit with Sneaky.  She also bit the cork a lot.


Mr. Kitty was not in the mood for pictures, as usual.  (He is an old guy and he is having some eye problems right now so this was the best I could do.)

Verdict: I calculated a value of $25.90 for the May 2016 Surprise My Pet cat subscription box.  That is a little above the cost of the box and is a better deal if you get a longer term subscription or use a coupon code.  I should also point out that some of the prices quoted above were sale prices, and also that cat boxes have notoriously low values so meeting or exceeding the value of the box is definitely a good thing.

What do you think of the May 2016 Surprise My Pet box? Do you subscribe to any cat boxes?

  1. Thanks so much for the review of the cat version of this box. I was considering taking a chance and ordering it before seeing any reviews…and I gotta say…I’m glad I didn’t. The items in the box, and the value especially are kind of underwhelming…

  2. I’ll bet Mr. Kitty was quite the character in his youth. He still has a bit of that ornery look to him. As the senior member of your cat clan of course he can’t be bothered to participate in reviews/photos; that’s what his kitty minions are for! Big ❤️ to Mr. Kitty and everyone else!

  3. Just came for the awesome cat photos and glad I was not disappointed!!!! ??? cutest helpers ever!!

  4. Wait… This box is $35/month and this box had a value of about $25??

    • I got the box awhile back and wrote the review before there was pricing on their site, so I wrote the review thinking the pricing would be the same as for the dog box. Apparently the pricing structure for the cat box is different. So that would change my verdict.

      If you use the coupon code above and buy a year subscription, you would just about break even if all months are like this one. Because this is such a new subscription, I don’t know what the average will be over time. With the pricing structure described at the top, you may want to wait a few months and see what the average is.

    • Actually, this is supposed to be a multi cat box according to the review, so it would cost $37. I won’t buy the box, but the kitty pictures are cute!

  5. Yay! Glad to see the cats enjoying their goodies. 🙂

    I used to have a black cat, so I hear you on the struggles of photographing them. Almost 20 years of taking pictures of her and I only have about half a dozen really good ones.

  6. I love that you always include your kitties in your reviews! In particular, Mr. Kitty!
    I hope he gets to feeling better soon! 🙂

    • He actually is doing quite a bit better lately; that picture is from a couple of months ago (we held off with the review until people could easily to subscribe to the cat box from the Surprise My Pet site).

      • I’m very happy to hear it! <3 I love that he's always nearby when you do these reviews, but lets the young-in's enjoy the toys. 🙂
        Your reviews are among my favorites because of your kitty family!! 🙂
