KitNipBox Cat Subscription Review + Coupon – February 2017
KitNipBox is a monthly subscription box just for cats. Each month, expect a themed selection of toys and treats for your kitty! None of the food products in the box are made in China, though some of the toys may be. All KitNip Box toys are thoroughly assessed for quality and safety by the KitNip Box team.
I had some assistants for the unboxing. There may have been some hissing involved when I tried to get them out of the way…

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.
‘R Squad Pet Toys Massaging Curry Brush – Listed Value $6
The cats seemed to like being brushed with this, even though it didn’t remove much loose hair (it did take out some from Monkey). Of course, Sneaky bit it. (I couldn’t find this online so am using the value from the information card.)
Paws ‘n Purrs Just Mousing Around Vibrating Cat Toy – Listed Value $4
Normally my cats are not so into the noisy, vibrating toys, but apparently Angus thinks they are awesome (he thinks pretty much everything is awesome, including my shoes and dirty laundry, my Kindle charging cord, and the little pointer arrow on my husband’s laptop screen).
Note: there are a lot of vibrating mouse toys out there, and I had a hard time finding this specific one, but the value from the information card is pretty reasonable compared to similar items.
LEAP Catnip Caturday Kicker – Listed Value $5
Think Cat! Remote Control Kicker – Listed Value $6
These are smaller than your average kicker toys so my cats were interested. (Angus has shown a tendency to play with some larger kicker toys, too. But like I said above, Angus has shown a tendency to play with pretty much everything.) These brands are both common in KitNipBox and hard to find anywhere online.
Think Cat! Scratcher with Premium Catnip – Listed Value $6
This is a very small scratcher. It is suggested in the information card to put it in your KitNipBox, but it would move around in there. I am waiting for my next SweatyBox, which I think will be about the right size. This may also work as a refill if you have a toy like this (only requiring a rectangular insert, obviously).
Simply Nourish Freeze Dried Fish (0.39 oz) – Value $1.75
This is a PetSmart exclusive brand, I think, and I can’t find the fish flavor online. They seem to only have chicken and shrimp in stock, so I’ve based the value on the chicken flavor. This smells like fish food (ick) but is very appealing to the cats. Angus, Sneaky, and Madison especially liked it.
Safemade Paw Wine Glass – Listed Value $5
This is another brand you’ll see a lot in KitNipBox but won’t find elsewhere online. I tossed this to Angus and he went nuts. It is so much fun having a kitten again.

Usually my cats are a little scared of moving toys but Angus was like “let me have that!”
Angus sniffs a treat. Also KITTY TONGUE. (I know he has a scab under his eye. We think he has a food allergy and are in the process of changing his diet. It is getting better.)
Treats are always the most interesting thing for Madison in any cat subscription box.
Monkey investigates a toy.
Brushing Monkey. Honestly, his fur is so matted (he stopped grooming himself except when he really wants to have a hairball) that I need to shave him at this point.
Monkey was very interested in sniffing the stinky treats. Mr. Kitty was, too (you can see his body in the background).
If there is one thing you can count on, it is that Sneaky will try to bite rubber and silicone things.
And if there is another thing you can count on, it’s that Sneaky will be excited for treats. Luckily I didn’t end up with any puncture wounds. This time.
Mr. Kitty sniffs a toy. The whitish area in his right eye is corneal damage, according to the veterinary ophthalmologist. I am not sure if it will go away. (He is not in any pain.) His left eye looks large due to a different type of corneal damage. Poor guy. But he is doing well since his eye surgery – no more discharge and much less squinting.
Brushing Mr. Kitty. He likes the attention, though he is good at grooming himself (and he has thin hair anyway, due to being on prednisolone and chlorambucil for his IBD).
Verdict: I calculated a value of $33.75 for the February KitNipBox. That is a little above the month-to-month cost of the box, which is pretty good for a cat subscription box. Of course I had to rely on the information card for most of the values, but if you are looking for some toys that you won’t find in other cat subscription boxes, KitNipBox is a good choice.
What did you think of the February KitNipBox? Do you subscribe to any cat boxes?
