There was an information card in the box listing the items. It also had my cats’ names!

Cat Couture “The Charmer” Bowtie + Collar Matching Set – Listed Value $35

There is always one wearable item in Whiskerbox. This one is more practical than the costumes in previous boxes in that it is actually a functional collar (the bowtie is removable, and there is a D-ring for hanging ID or a rabies tag). This seems to be quite well-made. If I had one criticism, it would be that the buckle is quite heavy for a cat collar (on the other hand, it won’t come off as easily as the common breakaway collars you often see for cats). I am not sure I agree completely with the value from the information card, but I typically can’t find Cat Couture items online.

whiskerbox-february-2017-food

Weruva B.F.F. Tuna & Duck Devour Me (3 oz) – Value $0.95

My cats love these little pouches of food, as you will see below. Even Angus got in on the action, and he is still kind of shy when the others are around. Sadly, Mr. Kitty had to pretend to watch from far away (he can’t see more than a foot or two in front of his face) because he can’t have tuna.

Omega Paw Meow Merlot (3 oz) – Value $3.84

We’ve been getting a lot of this brand lately. This variety has turkey and tart cherry. No one would eat them for photos for the review because they had just pigged out on the food pouch, but Madison did eat a few later on. He is a big fan of turkey so I’m not surprised he’s the cat who was most enthusiastic.

whiskerbox-february-2017-toys

Furry Tails Tasty Bites Wine Glass Toy – Value $4.50

Furry Tails Tasty Bites Feather Heart Toy – Listed Value $8

These are handmade. There was branding information but it was on shiny plastic bags that didn’t photograph well. Like many other things around the house, Angus thinks they are AWESOME. His new thing is licking feathers but he will play with pretty much anything I give him. He did not manage to destroy these, either. (I couldn’t find the second toy in their Etsy shop so I’ve taken the value from the information card.)

1 Small Chocolate

No idea of a brand here but there is usually a little piece of chocolate or something in this box. Obviously, it is meant for the owner and not the cat(s)!

Purrgundy Cat Wine (1.6 oz) – Value $4.95

This is catnip water with some coloring in it (I think from beets, but I’ve already recycled the bottle so I can’t go check). Monkey thinks this stuff is wonderful. He’s liked all the cat wine we’ve received in other subscription boxes in the past, as well.

Gratuitous cat photo time:

Something tells me this is the one time I *might* get all my cats in the same picture.

Angus really likes feathers. Apparently, they make for good licking.

Monkey drank the cat wine. Angus splashed it everywhere with his paw.

Madison did not want to take part in any photo sessions. These were pretty much the only pictures I could get of him.

I’m still not really sure how I managed to get that on her.

Mr. Kitty in his favorite sunny window. His eyes look terrible in this photo but they are actually doing much better.

Verdict: I calculated a value of $57.24 for the February 2017 Whiskerbox. Although I do think the listed value for the collar/bowtie combo was somewhat high, I still feel like the value was comfortably over the cost of the box. Each item was popular with a different cat (Angus liked the toys, Monkey liked the cat wine, Madison liked the treats, everyone liked the food, etc.) so every cat got a little something out of the box. (Well, Mr. Kitty got to wear the collar. I’m not sure that thrilled him, but it didn’t leave lasting scars either!) This is always a fun one to unbox and the collar was a useful, practical item.

  1. I love the pictures of Mr. Kitty and Sneaky in the bow tie! They are so freaking cute!

  2. That is a handsome photo of your Miss Sneaky!

  3. Squeaky rocked that bow tie.

  4. Your cats are just gorgeous. You are a good Mommy to get them all these surprises.

  5. Great review, but most of all, LOVE THE CAT PHOTOS!!! All of your fur babies are precious, but Angus has stolen my heart! I think it’s the combination of his continual “helpfulness” along with those two black spots on his side. Also, i love the expression of the black/brown/cream kitty in the bow tie – their look is priceless!
