The information card typically just gives a URL for finding out more information about the items in the box. The picture is adorable, as usual. This month had a barbershop theme.
Furry and Fancy Felt Mouse with Mustache – Retail Value $5.99?
This is a simple, relatively flat catnip mouse made of felt. I think the highlight was honestly the ribbon tail, which was an especially big hit with Madison, Sneaky, and Angus.
Meowbox Mustache Toy – Retail Value $4.99
Here is another felted catnip toy, this time in the shape of a mustache. This is a good, small size, and Angus was a particular fan. (Try as I might, I could not get a cat to sit still while I held this in front of his or her face.)
Meowbox Whiskers Catnip Shave Cream – Retail Value $5.99
This is another catnip plush. It is possibly the weirdest object I have ever seen for a cat toy to mimic – a puff of shaving cream with whiskers sticking out of it. I absolutely love the facial expression. The cats wanted to cuddle with this one (even some of the older ones), which is fine.
Dapper Tabby Barpurr Shop Pole Toy – Retail Value $5.99
This is a kicker-type toy, but it is on the smaller side for a kicker, which is great, as my cats tend to prefer lighter-weight toys. Also it has a feather coming out the end, which is a plus (the feather seems securely attached). Monkey wanted to rub his face all over this and Angus was more interested in playing with it in a traditional way.
Vital Essentials Duck Liver (0.9 oz) – Retail Value $4.99 (found here for $4.49)
My cats are not big on freeze-dried meat treats. Sneaky did like this quite a bit. More importantly, though, it is duck liver, and Mr. Kitty can have that. Since I have plenty of treats for Sneaky already, I am keeping this bag with Mr. Kitty (he is in isolation right now so he can have some peace and quiet while he deals with an eye infection).

Angus sniffs a treat. He didn’t actually end up eating it, but he sure seemed interested.

Madison with a treat.
Madison wanted to sniff this on his own time and was somewhat annoyed I had the camera out.
But he did really like the ribbon tail on this toy. He was putting it in his mouth, though the camera never caught those moments (naturally).
Monkey was mad at me. He had a bad reaction to a new food yesterday, so I wouldn’t give him any of the treats. He did, however, repeatedly rub his chin all over the toys.
Sneaky eats a treat. Only one picture of this because on the next treat, she bit my finger and I started bleeding.
Sneaky liked this toy a lot, especially the tail.
I think the shaving cream puff sums up Mr. Kitty’s mood.
But OH BOY, duck liver. He can eat that. (In fact, it is how I distract him right before his eye drops. He is on so many eye drops right now; we are going back to the veterinary ophthalmologist soon for a recheck.)
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $27.95 for the November Meowbox. I thought the theme was fun and unique (it’s good to get at least one or two non-Thanksgiving pet boxes to break up the stream of turkey toys and such). At least one (sometimes more) cat liked every toy, and Mr. Kitty could actually eat the treats, so that was also great news.
