Madcat Purrfect Pineapple – Value $4.99
There is something about Madcat toys (I guess it is the silvervine in addition to catnip) that my cats just love. I also joke that they are the perfect toys for Mr. Kitty since they have unevenly sized eyes, just like he does. But seriously, these are cute and the cats love them so we are always happy to get more.
Apollo Peak Cat Tea – Value $2.95
This has valerian and catnip. And whew, can you smell the valerian (to me, it smells like old dirty socks, but Monkey thinks it’s awesome). Monkey drank the tea (but mostly rubbed his chin all over the bowl I put it in). Angus kept trying to drag the tea bag off. Either way, I guess a couple of cats enjoyed it.
Organic Wheatgrass Seeds – Value $3.50
Mr. Kitty and Monkey like cat grass. I haven’t had a chance to start this sprouting yet (this week has been kind of busy) but I will do so pretty soon.For what it’s worth, this sort of thing doesn’t seem to aggravate Mr. Kitty’s IBD, as long as I don’t let him have too much.
Catnip Toasty – Value $5
Sneaky found the little felt pat of butter fascinating. Angus liked this, as well. It is a nice and lightweight toy, which is my cats’ preference.
Floppy Fried Egg Frisbee from Housecat Club – Value $7
We’ve had a lot of toys from Housecat Club in past cat subscription boxes and the cats always seem to have fun with them. They also last a pretty long time for handmade toys. This is nice and small and it was a win for my guys (and gal).
And now, what you’ve all been waiting for…
Angus was playing with this chair as much as he was playing with the toys, I think.
Here is Angus trying to steal the tea bag.
Madison has really wanted to spend most of his time under the bed lately. He did come out to investigate these toys, though.
Monkey investigates the pineapple toy.
Monkey “loves” the catnip tea and pays attention to pretty much nothing else going on in the room.
Sneaky wouldn’t play with anything on camera, but I caught a couple of good shots of her looking at the camera.
Mr. Kitty was asleep when I went to take photos. But I did get one of him with his eyes open (and the egg toy on his head).
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $23.44 for the May Meowbox. That is a little bit above the cost of the box. For a cat subscription with some exclusive items and handmade items, it is a great value (cat subscriptions tend to run low). I thought the brunch theme was fun, my cats liked the toys, and it was hilarious to watch Monkey interact with the bowl of cat “tea.” This was a pretty good month for us.
