Purr Packs Cat Subscription Review + Coupon – December 2016

purr-packs-december-2016-box

Purr Packs is a monthly subscription box for cats. You can choose from several different subscription tiers, with customization offered for higher tiers (for example, you can exclude certain protein sources in treats).

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

This review is of the Multi-Cat Mega Pack, $39.99 a month, box.

purr-packs-december-2016-review

The Subscription Box: Purr Packs

The Cost:  $16.99 for the Slim Pack (contains 4-5 toys), $24.99 for the Teaser Pack (contains 5-7 items), $29.99 for the Fun & Love Pack (contains 7-9 items), and $39.99 for the Multi-Cat Mega-Pack (contains 9+ items).

COUPON: Use code MSA20 to save 20% off your first box!

The Products: Toys, made-in-the-USA treats, and other cat goodies, including many exclusive items.

Ships to: US, Canada, UK

Good to know: There are now shipping charges of $4.95 in the US. Subscribers at the time of this change (like me) are grandfathered into the free shipping plan. Also note that subscribing nets you 10% savings versus buying a single box (coupon codes will still work on top of that discount, as well). You can now decide how many shipments you want in a year and choose the arrival date.

Instead of a traditional information card, this month there was a card with a URL where you can find out more about the items in the box.

purr-packs-december-2016-ball

Purr Packs Ball Toys (x3) – Value $4?

I don’t think Purr Packs has a shop (or if they do, I can’t find it from their site) so this value is an estimate based on similar items. Monkey happens to love ball toys so these were a win.

Zanies Ball with Bell – Value $0.55

You know what Monkey loves even more than regular ball toys? Ball toys that make noise! He batted this all over the dining room.

purr-packs-december-2016-catnip

Companion Premium Catnip (0.5 oz) – Value $1?

This includes a bonus toy and will be good for refreshing all of my corrugated cat scratchers. Unfortunately, the name of this product is too generic to search and get relevant hits, so I’ve given it the same value as similar items I did find.

Imperial Cat Snack ‘n Treat Easy Grow Greens (4 oz) – Value $4.95

These are oat seeds. Monkey and Mr. Kitty both like cat grass and I don’t have any going right now. In about a week this should be good to go!

purr-packs-december-2016-clip

Pet Buddies Bag Clip – Value $1?

This is supposed to help keep dry cat food fresh for longer. I will try it out for awhile and see how it goes – Monkey and Madison are both picky and will only eat kibble (different kinds, of course, and only the expensive prescription stuff from the vet). Please note the value may be a little higher. I could only find a wholesale site where you can’t buy fewer than 12 at a time and an Amazon listing where the number of clips you get for the price is unclear. So the value above is an estimate.

Yeowww! Catnip Green Fish – Value $5.59

Yeowww! stuff is always popular (for months later, too). Monkey jumped in the box as soon as I opened it and started licking this. Madison also enjoyed tossing it around.

purr-packs-december-2016-holiday

Spot Holiday Catnip Wooly Worm – Value $2.99

The yarn “hair” was the interesting point for this toy.  It’s nice to get a few holiday-themed toys BEFORE the holidays actually arrive! I’m having trouble finding the holiday ones online, but I’ve listed the price and linked to the regular ones.

Imperial Cat Cat ‘n Around Holiday Mice (3 pack) – Value $4.95

I love the little sparkle-ball ears on these guys. Small catnip toys are always a win with us.

purr-packs-december-2016-savvy-tabby

Savvy Tabby Loop Feather Balls (2 pack) – Value $6.62

Sneaky thought these were pretty awesome (see below). They were good for biting and they didn’t fall apart.

purr-packs-december-2016-scratch-pad

Corrugated Cardboard Scratch Pad – Value $10?

You will receive one of these in almost every Purr Packs box (at least the larger box I subscribe to). My kitties love them and I have so many, I now replace the rattiest looking one with the newest one each month!

purr-packs-december-2016-treats

The Honest Kitchen Wonders Pollock Fish Skin Treats (2 oz) – Value $8.81

Sadly, these were not a hit with my crew. Sneaky LOVED the smell but she looked at the treat, sniffed/bit one, then kept coming back to the bag, expecting something else.

Lots of cat photos ahead!

Monkey with the Yeowww! toy. He wouldn’t stop licking it UNTIL I tried to take a photo.

Monkey chased this green ball all over the dining room.

purr-packs-december-2016-sparkles2

Once again, Mr. Kitty was not in the mood for photos. (This day he was freaked out from going to the veterinary ophthalmologist. For what it’s worth, the whitish thing in his left eye is called a corneal bulla and he gets them in that eye from time to time.)

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $50.46 for the December 2016 Purr Packs box. That is a great value for a cat box. Although the treats were not so popular with my cats, the toys all were (especially the Yeowww! fish and the feather ball things, and of course the scratch pad). Purr Packs is consistently among the best cat subscription boxes I get every month.

What did you think of the December 2016 Purr Packs box? Do you subscribe to any cat boxes?

  1. The Purr Pack is worth it for the box with scratcher alone! My cat loves that thing. On his Instagram we have tons of pictures of him sleeping in it. He is also addicted to those Yeowww! toys. We always have a few spares on hand because he tends to tear them apart from time to time.

  2. poor mr. kitty 🙁 great photos Ragan!
