Ruff & Whiskerz Pizza Toy (Meowbox exclusive) – Value $5?
You’ll get quite a few exclusive Ruff & Whiskerz toys in Meowbox. I used the value from some other Ruff & Whiskerz toys from the Meowbox Shop. Angus wrestled this. He is still young enough that he will play with pretty much anything. This is a good size for my cats; they like smaller toys (see the scale in one of the cat photos below).
Maui Meowi Catnip Pillow – Value $5?
I can’t find this for sale online (searching it only turns up other Meowbox reviews) so the value is an estimate. Angus thought this was great. You can see a few photos below of him wrestling it.
Le Sharma Trading Wool Flower (Meowbox exclusive) – Value $6
You get exclusive wool toys from Le Sharma Trading fairly often in Meowbox. This month it was this flower. My cats do like these quite a bit so I am always happy to get more. Plus, they are handmade in Nepal in a Fair Trade facility!
My Cat is People Enamel Pin (“But Furrst Coffee!”) – Value $11
My Cat is People is an Etsy shop that offers a lot of cat-themed pins and buttons. Although I don’t drink coffee, the pin itself doesn’t actually say coffee, that’s just the backing. A cat in a teacup works for a tea drinker too! (Although I have never had a cat small enough to fit in a teacup, not even when I got a 2-month-old kitten.) I am collecting a few cat-themed pins so I need to figure out a place to proudly display them.
Vita Essentials Vitalcat Freeze Dried Wild Alaskan Salmon (1.1 oz) – Value $6
These are single-ingredient treats. We’ve been getting a lot of freeze-dried meat lately. It’s kind of a double-edged sword – you really can’t do better in terms of ingredients (plus these are made in the USA), but not all of my cats like freeze-dried meat much.Only Sneaky and Angus ended up eating these (although Madison and Monkey did lick them).
Gratuitous cat photo time:
Angus rolls around with the catnip sack.
Madison asks why we have to take pictures every day.
Madison sniffs the flower toy.
Monkey eats treats.
Monkey is irritated.
Down the hatch!
It’s not a stick, but Sneaky bites it anyway!
I’m not looking at you!
OK, maybe I’ll open one eye. Just a little bit.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $33 for the April Meowbox. That is pretty good for a cat subscription box! Also, you will get lots of exclusive toys and Etsy-type items that you can’t find anywhere else, so I think that adds something to the value. All the cats liked the wool flower and Angus had fun with the other toys, and Sneaky loved the treats, so this was a good month for us.
