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.
