Loving Pets It’s Purely Natural 100% Pure Dried Buffalo

Loving Pets It’s Purely Natural 100% Pure Dried Buffalo (2 oz) – Retail Value $3.99

We have received this treat in cat subscription boxes before. Unfortunately, it’s just not an appropriate cat treat. Although the smell and taste appeal to cats, the pieces are large and tough and cats just can’t figure out how to eat it.

Aussie Naturals Crinkle Pillow (heart)

Aussie Naturals Crinkle Pillow (heart) – Estimated Value $1.50

This is a larger catnip plush with some dangly strings (they are pretty thick). It has a canvas texture that appeals to Monkey. I doubt anyone will toss it around, but I suspect there will be some cuddling, and that works, too. (These were hard to find for sale. The best I could do was this eBay auction for two of these.)

So Bright Freeze Dried Whitefish (1 oz)

So Bright Freeze Dried Whitefish (1 oz) – Estimated Value $2.99

Freeze dried meat is really popular as a cat treat right now. Unfortunately, most of my cats really don’t care for it. This stuff smells like fish food. The cats loved the smell but, ultimately, wouldn’t eat it (other than Sneaky, who is the cat version of a garbage disposal and will eat anything, including non-food items, if I don’t watch her carefully). (This is hard to find online, as well. I’ve estimated the value based on these salmon treats from the same brand.)

Multipet Sock Pals

Multipet Sock Pals – Retail Value $1.99

I think this was the clear winner from the package this month. Both Monkey and Mr. Kitty loved rubbing their chins on this. Plus, it is small enough to toss around. I have left it with Mr. Kitty (he is by himself right now due to his eye socket issues) for him to snuggle with.

Angus sniffed this treat, bit it into little pieces, and left them all over the floor. Sigh.

I love this picture. Madison liked to lick the buffalo treats, but these are really not appropriate as cat treats in terms of size or texture. No one could actually eat them.

Monkey is not food motivated. I think it shows in this picture.

However, he did really want to rub his chin on this toy.

Sneaky really wanted the fish treats. The big white thing in the lower left is her paw. With claws digging into my hand…

Mr. Kitty also liked rubbing his chin on this toy.

Verdict: I calculated a value of $10.47 for the January Pet Treater Cat Pack. That’s the first time this one has come in below the month-to-month cost of the package. In fairness, I had to estimate a few values because some of the items were not easy to find online, and some of the others were only available via third-party sellers on Amazon or closeout retailers. This was not the best month for us because neither package of treats was well-loved by my crew, but other months have been better.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you’d receive February’s package as your first shipment.

Value Breakdown: This box cost me $12.99 + free shipping, which means that each of the 4 items in the box has an average cost of $3.25.

  1. I got December’s box and felt it was a good value. I continued the subscription for a January, but am very disappointed. The value of items is less than the cost of the box! That’s a big fail foe me. And I still haven’t received the January box… another fail. Looks like I will be moving on to a different Cat box

  2. Amazing review. Love your kitties….I looked at the box for my kitty but then I found out where or who was selling it and I just have had a bad experience with another box they sell. My kitty can’t eat many treats for some reason. He will either throw up or even worse so this box wouldn’t be worth it I guess. I do love reading your reviews…..and your furry friends.

  3. I got the same Multipet toy, and I was wondering if you had the following issues – on the packaging it clearly states that this is a catnip toy for cats, but on the plush itself, the tag says “Dog Toy” and the tag also says that it contains no catnip in it. I didn’t smell any catnip myself, and my cats had no reaction to the toy, so I wonder if there is any catnip at all.

    Plus, instead of the heart toy, I got two janky, misshapen mouse toys, and one fairly ok one. The buffalo treats were also inedible for my cats. I thought the past few boxes were pretty good value, but this one was a complete miss. I get that’s the nature of these type of boxes but I was super disappointed with this one. I was already charged for next month’s box, but if it’s as bad as this one, I’m definitely cancelling.

    • I cut the tag off so I can’t check. My cats did play with it (or rub their chins on it, anyway), so that’s not always a good indication. I find that they will play with things that have been refreshed in a bag with catnip for awhile, or sprayed with catnip spray (if you have any of that around). Or Angus will play with anything (but he’s young).

      Though the labeling oddness may be how/why Jammin’ Butter got these at a steep discount…
