The box included an information card with a list of items and a monthly message.


Cat-Man-Doo Sprinkles Crushed Dried Bonito Flakes (2.5 oz) – Value $5.69

This is something I was interested in trying.  I have heard sprinkling a few bonito flakes on top of food will make it more appetizing to cats.  I am using this to try to convert Monkey to eating wet food, since he has been resistant so far.

Sweet Pickles Designs Cat Bow Tie – Value $7

This is cute but my cats won’t wear collars (I’ve tried – they remove the collars, so I stopped bothering) so bow ties that slip over the collar are of no real use to me.


Kat Stars from Good Kat Bakery (2 oz) – Value $3.50 (?)

The first ingredient in these is whole wheat flour and they also have all purpose flour and wheat germ.  I try to avoid giving my cats treats that include grain, especially as the first ingredient, plus these arrived in a mass that did not appear to resemble stars at all.  I guess the frosting melted in the heat or something.  I can’t find these in the Good Kat Bakery shop, so I’ve taken a value from similar treats.


Felt Alien – Value $2.50 (?)

Felt UFO – Value $2.50 (?)

These were supposed to be filled with catnip but my cats didn’t react like there was any catnip in them at all.  If I hadn’t been extremely lucky in terms of when I chose to take photos (cats were in the mood to play), I don’t think there would’ve been very good pictures this month.  There was no brand listed so I had to guess at the values.

Kitty picture time!

The look on Madison’s face kind of sums up my feelings about the box.


Monkey will slap at anything if you dangle it in front of his face long enough.

Sneaky will also slap at, grab, or bite anything if you dangle it in front of her long enough.



I fully admit to putting the toy on Mr. Kitty after he posed in each case, then snapping a picture…

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $21.19 for the May 2016 PetPack for cats.   Although some of the values are guesses, that is considerably below the cost of the subscription plus shipping.  Plus, a lot of the box was kind of a miss for me, personally this month.  I won’t feed the wheat treats to my cats, I have no use for the bowtie, and if there was catnip in the toys at all, it wasn’t very strong.  Due to all the above issues, I really can’t recommend this box at this time.

What do you think of the May 2016 PetPack?  Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?

  1. Wow, glad I didn’t try that one.. I’ve got 4 cats, I subscribe to KitNip box and they really do a nice job. My cats have been loving it!

  2. Thanks for the review on this box. I have been looking into getting a monthly subscription box for my cats. And after seeing your pictures and review, this will definitely not be the one! I always read your reviews, love the pictures you post.

    • I suggest Purr Packs. That one has had the best value of all the ones I’ve tried. There are plenty of reviews of that one here for you to take a look at, too.

  3. Cute curation with the theme, but I agree – the bowtie would be pretty useless to us, and we also would not feed the cookies to our cats, given the ingredients. Thanks for the review!

  4. Wow that box looks like a fail. Melted stars- ew. Flat toys- huh? But the cats are awesome as always & Mr Kitty is looking good! Too bad he won’t wear that bow cuz is bet he’d look dapper!

      • Oh weird, I did not know I could embed videos in comments.

        • OMG…thank you for posting the video – that just made my day!

          Another great review – I always appreciate your honesty.

        • I love it! My cats reacted like yours did when I tried putting just a simple around the neck piece awhile ago. Shadow(the calm one) reacted like your black kitty(sorry I forget their names) and Izzy(the crazy one) reacted more like all the cats trying to get it off/attack it in one sitting. She also got off her “cone” by zooming around the apartment flipping around until it came off…
          She will also spend all day hiding under the hardest place to get her out of >_<
          Love all your reviews!

      • Love it! I could just watch or read posts about your animals all day lol. Our cat won’t sit still once a costume is put on her. The dog on the other hand, couldn’t care less.

      • OMG, love this.

        Monkey is MUCH bigger than he looks in pictures – he’s a big fluff! So cute! (I admit to also reading your petbox reviews for the pictures!).
