Pet Treater Cat Pack December 2017 Review
There’s not a traditional information card with this subscription, but you get a couple of other inserts relating to themes, products, sharing on social media, etc.
Kathy Ireland Catnip Tin with Catnip (1 oz) – Retail Value $11.75
These have been on Overstock.com since at least last year, so the catnip is kind of old, but it was sealed well enough that it did get a reaction from my cats when I used it to refresh a scratch pad. I like the idea of storing catnip in a tin, which seems less messy than a baggie, too.
Emerald Pet Feline Dental Treats (turducky flavor, 3 oz) – Retail Value $4.49
These are crunchy treats. Angus understands how to eat them (he actually chewed them up into little bits and then ate the bits) but Sneaky tries to swallow them whole and almost chokes. I think Angus will be getting the rest of these. (Madison also liked them fairly well.) This is a product that shows up fairly regularly in cat subscription boxes.
Bare Bites Beef Liver (2 oz) – Retail Value $9.99
I like the *idea* of single-ingredient treats (these are beef liver) but this was not a good choice for cats. They are squares several mm thick and 1-2 inches on a side and they are difficult to break (with semi-sharp edges) and they are just not something my cats could figure out how to eat. Sneaky and Madison got quite frustrated because they could smell these but not chew them. (These are also marketed for dogs and they are way more suitable as a dog treat.)
Best Pet Supplies Mouse Toy 2-Pack – Retail Value $2.99
These are mouse toys that are somewhat on the larger side. Madison was fascinated with their tails and Angus batted one of them all around. (Angus seemed to prefer these as interactive toys so I had to watch my hands so I didn’t get scratched!)
Bergan Whirly Pop – Retail Value $4.99 (on sale for $3.99)
I couldn’t get anyone to play with this for photos, but later at night, when the camera was put away, Sneaky started gnawing on the rubber part of this, which was just hilarious to watch. (Sneaky does enjoy biting rubber and silicone things.)
Gratuitous cat photos…
Angus liked the fish treats.
And he was in the mood to play with these mouse toys, too.
Madison sniffed the beef liver treats but didn’t know what to do with them, in the end.
Madison understood these treats perfectly, though.
Monkey is skeptical.
Sneaky really wanted to eat this, but she couldn’t figure out how to.
The fish treats were easier for her, though.
And Mr. Kitty’s appearances in cat subscription reviews will be sporadic for a bit longer. He’s still got about a week and a half in the cone (at least). But he is improving every day!
Verdict: I calculated a value of $34.21 for the December Pet Treater Cat Pack. That’s quite a respectable value for a $12.99 cat subscription box, and a little bit higher than last month. The beef liver treats were a bit of a failure, but the other treats were well-liked, as were the toys.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you’d receive January’s package as your first shipment.
