There was a standard information card in the box listing the items, as well as a second card encouraging you to share on social media.
Pancake Catnip Frisbee Toy from Housecat Club – Value $7.50
These are from an Etsy shop. I think they’re cute. I also think the catnip is pretty good because my cats wanted to rub all over them. So these were wins.
My “helper” strikes again…
Egg Addiction Cat Egg Mold – Value $17
You are supposed to separate two eggs and use this to fry the whites, while putting the yolks where the eyes are. I can’t take eating runny egg yolks but I think this will also work to make cat-shaped pancakes, and that would be pretty awesome. Sneaky was interested in this item as well (see below).
Ceramic Cat Mug – Value $5.50
I actually already had a pair of these in black and white (they’re all over Amazon, different brand names but basically exactly the same product), but I use them – they have a pretty big capacity and they’re not that difficult to drink from. So another one is welcome. The information card had a higher value but I listed half the price of a set on Amazon up above.
Jackson Galaxy Egg-Shaped Bobbler Toy – Value $5.95
I must be out of the loop (tends to happen when you don’t have time to watch TV) but Jackson Galaxy apparently has a television show where he fixes problem behaviors in cats (or something like that). I’ve been lucky so far not to have had a cat with that kind of problems (well, Sneaky did ruin a bunch of carpet right after we moved into our new house, but whatever). Anyway, I can’t find this exact toy online but there are some very similar ones with this price, which I have linked to above. Monkey was interested in this for sure.
Nutro Breakfast Scrambles Salmon and Egg Skillet (3 oz) – Value $1.07
I’m going to try this on Madison; I’ve been attempting to convince him to eat wet food forever. (If not, Sneaky will finish it up, so it won’t go to waste.) I’ve got high hopes as my cats really like scrambled eggs…
Kitty picture time!
Madison is not amused.
Madison is still not amused, and I love the Monkey photobomb in the corner. Also, yes, those are subscription boxes stacked really high in the chair. Don’t judge. I review like 40 boxes a month. It is hard to do that and keep the living room clean at the same time.
In case you are wondering, Monkey clawed my fingers shortly after this photo was taken and yes, I ended up bleeding.
Monkey liked the wobbler toy. He was rather possessive of it.
I know this is not meant to be a toy. But I also know how much Sneaky loves to chew on silicone things. She has stolen silicone trivets from the counter as well as a silicone-covered door-stopper from the bathroom where I used to live. So I did let her bite this for the photo. And then I took it away from her, ran it through the dishwasher, and put it where she can’t get it.
Yay, two open eyes!
I should say here, the cats really did like the pancake and egg toys, but they mostly wanted to rub their chins on the toys, which didn’t make for good photos. So I tried to take a few like this because I thought they were funny.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $43 for the June 2016 The Cat Kit. That is a bit above the cost of the box, which is great, especially for a box that includes cat toys (it seems to me, based on my experience reviewing cat subscriptions, that boxes with cat toys frequently end up being low in value). The items are fun and definitely fit the breakfast theme very well (in fact, I’d say they fit the theme better than a lot of other themed boxes). Plus, my cats really liked the pancake and egg toys so I have a new Etsy shop to check out.
