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 was circus-themed.
LEAP Owl Wobbler – Listed Value $6
Monkey likes wobbler toys quite a bit. This one had a soft covering that he rubbed his chin on a lot, too. I generally can’t find this brand online (I did look again) so I’ve taken the value from the information card. You’ll see this brand a fair amount in KitNipBox.
Paws ‘n Purrs Circus Pretzel – Listed Value $6
ThinkCat! Circus Elephant – Listed Value $6
These are both soft catnip toys. The elephant is a little smaller and was a little more popular with the older cats, while Angus was a fan of both and kept trying to steal the pretzel while I was taking photos. (Both of these items have very generic names that are pretty much impossible to search online if you want relevant results so the values are again from the information card.)
Safemade Circus Tent Pillow – Listed Value $5
This is a little large for my older cats to be interested, but Angus has wrestled with it some. He is pretty much interested in ALL toys at this point. Safemade doesn’t list any of the KitNipBox cat toys on their website. If you want toys from any of the brands listed so far, KitNipBox is pretty much the only way to get them that I have seen.
Boinks Kitty Flicks – Value $3.75
These are lightweight, springy mesh toys. You can compress them and let them fly for your cat(s) to chase after, but it’s also likely your cat will just bat them around on the floor if you leave them out. Some of my cats like to chew on them, as well.
My Little Lion Duck Hunter Recipe (2.65 oz) – Value $3.99
These were extremely popular. There are some weird ingredients (like animal plasma) that are probably designed to attract cats. I was able to feed these to four of my cats out of my hand, which is unusual (Monkey and Angus often will not take treats directly from me). Mr. Kitty can’t have them because of some of the ingredients (there are chicken proteins) but he really wanted them as well. For what it’s worth, we’ve had treats from this brand before and my cats ate the whole bag over the course of a week and were fine.
‘R Squad Ringmaster Bowtie – Listed Value $5
‘R Squad is another brand I only see in KitNipBox. This bowtie goes on like a collar and is adjustable over quite a large range of neck sizes. I was able to get it on three of my cats, though it kind of disappeared in Monkey’s long fur. It’s pretty lightweight and the clasp is a little difficult to secure.
And now, what you’ve all been waiting for…
Angus with some of the items from the box. (FYI, he has now picked up eye herpes from either Sneaky or Mr. Kitty, or else he had it before I got him and he is having a flare-up, hence the discharge from his eye. We are treating it.)
Madison hides in the bedroom a lot these days. I don’t think he likes Angus much. Anyway, here he is eating a treat and sitting grumpily with the pretzel toy on his head.
Monkey likes wobbler toys a lot.
Despite the look on his face, he actually enjoyed this treat.
The bowtie kind of disappeared into his fur.
I love the faces Sneaky makes when she is getting treats. Sorry, my arm is blocking a full view of the bowtie. Once again, I’m surprised I got it on her.
Mr. Kitty wanted to stay in his sunny window. Well, until I opened the treat bag. Sadly, these have chicken ingredients in them so he is unable to eat them. At least he could smell them!
Verdict: I calculated a value of $35.74 for the March KitNipBox. I would say that is a pretty standard value for KitNipBox, plus it is above the month-to-month cost of the subscription, which is great for a cat subscription box, as other cat boxes often seem to have values on the low side. I did have to take many of the values from the information card, but on the other hand, because the brands and specific toys can be hard to find, you will be getting many items in this box that you don’t see elsewhere, and there is some value in that as well. Different cats preferred different items in this box, and it is always less of a risk to order a cat subscription box if you have multiple cats. The treats were universally loved, though! Overall this was a pretty good month.
