Drymate Pet Bowl Placemat for Dogs and Cats – Value $8

This print is exclusive to Meowbox, as you can see. I will use this for under Sneaky’s bowl. She already has to eat in our tiny shower room because she gets food everywhere – even halfway up the wall. I’m not sure how she accomplishes this, but placemats make cleaning easier and this one is machine washable.


Categories Catnip Filled Owl Kicker – Value $5.99

My cats aren’t really into the large toys but we seem to be getting a lot of them lately. Anyway, this one had feathers so it was more popular than most (feathers make pretty much anything an instant win, except real birds – my cats are terrified of my cockatiels, parakeets, and zebra finches).

Meowbox Cell Phone Catnip Pillow – Value $3 (?)

Meowbox has been sending some exclusive toys lately. I would encourage them to continue as I think it adds a little overall value to the box. I kept thinking this was a calculator but the message on the screen and signal bars tell me otherwise. (I had a phone that didn’t look too different from this until recently but it was 2G and my carrier said they would no longer support it so I had to upgrade to a flip phone…)


Buddy Biscuits Grain Free Cat Treats with Tender Chicken (3 oz) – Value $2.99

We’ve gotten Buddy Biscuits a bunch of times before, but my cats love them (see below). They’re grain free and made in the USA, which is nice.

Lekiwi’s Bakery Catnip Donut – Value $6.50

This is a catnip pillow toy designed to look like a pastry. It is very soft and the packaging is super clever (which is why I have left the little bit of tissue paper in the photo – just like you’d get with a real pastry at a bakery). My cats weren’t in a very playful mood the day I took these photos, but I have put this up in the bedroom (where they spend their days and safely away from Nyx, who will eat just about anything) for them to play with later.


These treats were pretty popular. And look! Two kitty tongues in the same photo.



Never thought I would see the day a cat would take a treat from my hand. (He also bit my finger, but you can’t have everything!)


And ANOTHER cat takes treats from my fingers (can’t really see the treat in this photo…).



Sneaky was moving too much for me to get good action shots, but she did like playing with this toy.


And here she is, totally mesmerized by the sight of Monkey coughing up a hairball across the room (really).


Even Basement Cat likes feathers!


Madison taking a treat from my fingers. I can’t remember the last time I got one of them to eat out of my hand, let alone all three (Mr. Kitty doesn’t count since he can’t have treats).



You see so many cat photos around these windows because they’re the only sunny spot in the house (most of the house is pretty dark and surrounded by trees). So we put the scratch pads we get in subscription boxes there and you’ll see 2 or 3 cats there on any given afternoon.

Anyway, Mr. Kitty was pretty sleepy so I took advantage of that to pose him with some of the toys from the box…

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $26.48 for the August Meowbox. That is over the cost of the box and a little better than past several months. You can always buy a longer term subscription and/or use our ADDICTION coupon to get a better deal. This is actually something I would recommend if this box appeals to you. I like the trend in this subscription towards more exclusive items (totally don’t mind getting more Buddy Biscuits, though, as you can see my cats loved those) and indie items, too.

What did you think of the August 2016 Meowbox? Do you subscribe to any cat boxes?

  1. OMG, Ragan I felt like I was right their with your kitties, and shame on the one for biting your finger. Great review!

  2. I like the thoughtful expression on Sneaky’s face with the owl toy. Here we call that the butter wouldn’t melt in my furry little mouth, see mom I am perfect look. This look is usually followed by jumping on his brother, getting under foot when a human is carrying a hot beverage or using the hall carpet instead of one of the 5 litter boxes provided. Gratuitous cat talk… Tomorrow is our old guy’s adoption day. We have had the pleasure of his company for 14 years now. He was thought to be at least 5 when he adopted us making him 19 years old now. He like Mr. Kitty has IBD and is on steroids and a special diet. He amazes us daily. He still plays and runs around (on 3 legs) and can get very demanding if he’s hungry. He manages to open the bedroom door by himself, jump on the bed and meow until one of us gets up to feed him. If I’m too slow he will climb on my chest and head butt me in the nose until I wake up. I hope we have many more anniversaries with him.

    • Thanks for sharing! I can only hope that Mr. Kitty makes it to that ripe old age. (He is 12 now. I got him when he was about two months old.) He is in good health other than his eyes, which are giving him some problems (we are seeing an ophthalmologist about twice a month and he gets 18 eye drops a day), and his teeth (can’t do much about that because of the steroids so I puree his food with water and he “drinks” his meals).

      If Mr. Kitty is hungry, he will follow me all over the house — upstairs to get his food, downstairs to the kitchen where the mini food processor is, back upstairs with his little bowl full of puree, etc. And he begs at the table so sometimes I give him a little cheese.

  3. Kitty pictures❤

  4. OMG the hairball comment cracked me up! I have three kitties (two long haired) so it is always a good day when I come home from work and don’t find a hairball.

    • Monkey’s hairballs are a production. I swear they’re as big as sausages.

      Between Monkey and Madison, we go through a lot of Cat Lax.

      • Ragan – have you tried giving your cats daily probiotic treats? One a day completely stopped my cats from hairball production!

      • For hairballs there is also a…paste? that you can give your cats to reduce hairballs. My mom uses Sentry which comes in a malt flavor that her cat adores (she gets some a bit before dinner). Her wonderful kitty hasn’t had any hairballs since she started getting a daily dose.

        Also, I always love clicking on the various cat box reviews – the pictures of all your cats are so fantastic 😀 I love cats, but can’t currently have one, for a variety of reasons, so it’s always a mood booster to see your cats being adorably them.
