Whiskerbox November 2017 Booklet Front

Whiskerbox November 2017 Booklet Back

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

Whiskerbox November 2017 Collar

The Kittylicious Bowtie and Collar Matching Set – Listed Value $35

This subscription box alternates between/among cat hats, cat costumes, and bowtie/collar sets. I can’t always get the costumes or hats on every cat, but the collars will usually work for all (see photos below). The buckle is a little heavy here. Anyway, I think I’m going to remove the bowtie (you can slide it on and off) and add a bell and make this Monkey’s collar (the bell being a warning to other cats that he is coming, as he’s been harassing some of the others lately).

Whiskerbox November 2017 Ear

True Raw Choice 100% Natural Rabbit Ear – Listed Value $2

This is a Canadian product that does not appear to be available in single unit packs, and I’m not sure what portion of the whole package one ear constitutes, so I’ve used the value from the information card. I was kind of grossed out by this at first (I used to have a pet Dutch bunny) but I reasoned that I probably touch actual rabbit meat every day (Mr. Kitty eats a mixture of rabbit, lamb, and duck and I have to puree his food with water, which gets it pretty much everywhere). Anyway, all the cats (Nyx, too…) were interested but I most enjoyed seeing Mr. Kitty licking this. A lot. He has had a lot of problems with his eye lately and I am just happy to see him having a bit of fun.

Whiskerbox November 2017 Food

Weruva Truluxe Glam ‘n Punk (6 oz) – Estimated Value $2.71 (buy a case of 24 for $65)

This is premium cat food with lamb and duck. I am not even batting an eye at the per-can price because Mr. Kitty’s food is actually MORE expensive. This did have a little tuna in it, so Mr. Kitty couldn’t eat it, but the other four cats all enjoyed it (See below).

Whiskerbox November 2017 Steak

Steak Catnip Toy from Housecat Club – Retail Value $6

This is a small, felt catnip toy from an Etsy seller (link in the product name). We have received items from this maker in several cat subscription boxes and they are always good quality. Angus has had quite a bit of fun with this already (naturally, after the camera was OFF). Whiskerbox toys are some of Angus’s favorites.

Whiskerbox November 2017 Toy Tube

CatIQ Hide and Seek Toy – Listed Value $20

First off, there are pictures of this below, with cats, if you want to see what it looks like unfolded. I couldn’t find this for sale online so I’ve taken the value from the information card. This is a container with holes and you can put toys in the holes for your cats to bat around. It came with a few, though feel free to add others you may have around, as well. Monkey thought this was pretty awesome.

Bonus Candy

There’s always one little candy in the box, just a fun little extra.

Whiskerbox November 2017 Feeding Frenzy

I can’t believe it, all four of these guys together around the same plate!

Whiskerbox November 2017 Angus

This was the best bowtie picture I could get for Angus.

Whiskerbox November 2017 Madison

Seriously, no one wanted to look at the camera with the bowtie on.

Whiskerbox November 2017 Monkey

Finally, a good bowtie picture!

Whiskerbox November 2017 Monkey

Monkey plays with the “hide and seek” toy. This was his favorite thing for the box and he kept right on playing with it after pictures. He got the ball out of there within minutes.

Whiskerbox November 2017 Sneaky

Sneaky tries to stick her head in the “hide and seek” toy.

The only way I could get a bowtie picture of Sneaky is to tempt her with the rabbit ear. She is standing on her hind legs here.

Whiskerbox November 2017 Sparkles

Mr. Kitty is on some medication that makes him a bit sluggish at the moment so he was sleeping when I put the bowtie on him. (I know he has eye discharge. He is on five different types of eye drops right now and he goes back to the veterinary ophthalmologist in a few days.)

Whiskerbox November 2017 Sparkles

Despite his issues, Mr. Kitty really, really liked the rabbit ear. He licked and licked and licked it and I took about four dozen pictures until I finally got one that showed his tongue.

Verdict: I calculated a value of $65.71 for the November 2017 Whiskerbox. I had to take most of the values from the information card but, on the other hand, there were a lot of items from small producers (like the steak toy) or from other countries that are hard to get in the US (like the rabbit ear) or that are exclusive to the box (like the collar and bowtie set), so I still feel like this is a good deal. I was particularly happy to see Mr. Kitty’s reaction to the rabbit ear and Monkey’s reaction to the “hide and seek” toy as those are my two oldest cats (13 and 11 or 12, respectively) and they spend a lot of time sleeping these days. If you like to dress up your cats (I obviously do) and want some kinds of items that don’t appear in the other cat subscriptions, this could be a great subscription to consider.

  1. I have those exact hide and seek toy and they’re $3 at the Dollarama. I have just bought my first box late November. And unsure wether I’m getting this or the December one. I hoping for the December one as this one looks disappointing! I’ve emailed them few times now asking if/when it’ll be shipped and no response. Don’t think I’ll ever want to subscribe with them 🙁

  2. Very cute! Seems like a good box. I have that hide and seek toy I got for my cats and it was only about $10, but that was a few years ago. They may be more now. It’s the exact same one, same toys, same colors etc.

    • With a brand name like “CatIQ,” I had a hard time finding it. So I had to use the value from the information card. It may be that it does go for cheaper than the information card price.

  3. Monkey looks so handsome with the bow tie! And yay for Mr. Kitty enjoying the rabbit ear–it’s the little things in life!
