Patchwork Pet Patch Cat Catnip Duo (duck and soap) – Value $7 (?)
Soft, small catnip toys are always wins for us. And the duck is pretty cute! I couldn’t find these online so the value is an estimate based on the fact that you get two toys here.
Mad Cat Peppurroni Pizza – Value $4.99
I have now gotten two moustaches, an ice cream cone, and a taco from this product line in cat subscription boxes the past few months. But I think they are adorable and the cats go nuts over them (they have both catnip and feline silvervine) so I am cool with that. Now if someone would only send me the bacon and egg…
Dr. Becker’s Cat Snack Bites (2 oz) – Value $5.75 (?)
These are mostly beef liver. They are kind of big (like bigger than Cheez-Its crackers in surface area, although thinner). Sneaky and Madison loved them. But, Sneaky ate one and then regurgitated it immediately afterwards (Madison kept his down). So it is best to break them up into small pieces and proceed with caution. (It is not clear on the Dr. Becker’s site how large the full size product is, but the packaging is different, so I am estimating this one is about half size.)
Vitakraft Purrk Playfuls Marvy Mouse – Value $2.44
We’ve gotten a few toys from this line before. They are plastic (but my cats like plastic – a lot) and they have feline silvervine, which some cats will respond to even more strongly than with catnip. Monkey especially enjoyed this.
Tabby James Premium Organic Catnip + Sack – Value $3.67
This must’ve been pretty good catnip because Sneaky was really interested. Monkey wanted to lick the little sack after I filled it with catnip, too. (This particular set isn’t available online but the pouches are 3 for $3 and there is a sampler of 3 vials for $8 so I did some math from those to get to the value listed above.)
Gratuitous cat photos ahead!

Monkey is easy to pose.
Monkey liked biting the tail on this toy.
Sneaky REALLY wanted to bite the cork from the catnip vial.
And she wanted to rub her chin all over this toy. (I also like how Madison is hanging out in the background.)

Mr. Kitty sniffs the plastic silvervine mouse.
Mr. Kitty with the pizza toy. That white thing in his eye is called a corneal bulla and he gets them periodically. He is on eye drops and seeing a veterinary ophthalmologist and the bulla will go away in a week or two, based on past experience.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $23.85 for the September Meowbox. Some of the values are guesses/estimates because I couldn’t locate the items for sale online. Since some of the items are hard to find, that may increase the value of the box to a degree, although this value is fairly typical for Meowbox. This is really a subscription that you’re better off getting with a coupon and a multi-month subscription deal. The items were well-curated, though, with the pizza slice and silvervine mouse being particular hits with my guys and gal.
