The information card included a list of items in the box. They included values and I have used a lot of these below because KitNipBox toys can be hard to find for sale online. This month is hobby-themed.
Purrs ‘n Paws Paper Sisal Roller – Listed Value $4
Apparently, there are a lot of cat rescues called “Purrs ‘n Paws” because that’s all I was getting when searching for this online. Monkey likes sisal, though, and all the cats like feathers, so this was a win. (It’s a bit heavy for tossing but it rolls across hard floors very well.)
LEAP Feather Wobbler – Listed Value $5
There are a lot of similar toys out there, but none exactly the same as this, so I’ve once again used the value from the information card. This is another Monkey-preferred style of toy. He really gets interested in hard plastic ball toys.
ThinkCat! Game Controller – Listed Value $5
Apparently, game controller cat toys are a thing. But again, I couldn’t find this exact one. There wasn’t a ton of interest in this on the first day, but Mr. Kitty was resting his head on it this morning before I left for work. He rarely shows interest in toys so I take that as a positive sign!
Safemade Bean Bag Chair – Listed Value $4
Safemade has a website, but this product is not on it. At any rate, this is small enough for the cats to toss and it definitely fits with the rec room/hobby theme from the box. It is pretty soft and seems well-made.
Prime Taste Trout Jerky Treats (35 g) –Value $2.99
I’ve seen these before in other flavors, but the trout is new to us. Sneaky and Madison loved them (see below).
ThinkCat! Paper Plane Kite Wand – Listed Value $7
Here’s another one I can’t find online due to the search terms. However, this was probably the clear winner in the box in terms of toys. Dangly things on sticks usually are. Sneaky will play with them EVERY SINGLE TIME.
JW Cataction Bear Buddy –Value $7.87
A JW Cataction toy from this month’s Pet Parcel is one of my crew’s current favorites, so I was happy to receive another. This is small and cute and the catnip seems pretty good, judging from the reactions it is getting.
I love this picture. Madison has a huge tongue for a cat.
Madison wanted in the box pretty badly, too.
I think he’s still mad at me for posting that photo with the tongue.
Monkey is not so treat-motivated compared to the other cats. But he will sniff pretty much anything.
Of course, I could never catch him batting this around when the camera was on. He looks so alarmed because some other cat had just caused a huge commotion in the other room.
Sneaky bites something!
Dangly toys on sticks are always wins!
Sneaky really wanted in the box while I was taking photos of Mask Maven. She was licking some plastic in there. (It was almost dinnertime. I guess she was hungry.)
Mr. Kitty was sleeping while I was taking photos. I pulled the covers back (he was underneath) and posed him with a few items from the box.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $35.86 for the January KitNipBox. This is a pretty good value for a cat subscription. Granted, most of the toys were not easy to find online so I had to rely on the information card, but in a way, that is a good thing – you will nearly always get toys in this box that you can’t walk into a store and buy. I liked the variety of toys this month, too. There was something for everyone – feathers, small catnip toys, large catnip toys, a dangly thing on a string, etc.
