Pet Gift Box for Cats March 2018 Review
The box came with this information card.
Boxing Glove Catnip Toy – Listed Value $7.99
This is a dangler toy but without a wand. The dangler part is a little large although some of my cats liked the “wrong” end pretty well.
Leap Tail Pillow – Listed Value $6.99
Madison was pretty high on catnip from another cat box I’d just taken photos for, so he had some fun with this. It’s a good size (relatively small) for a “kicker” type toy.
Freeze dried meat is everywhere but my cats are kind of iffy about it. Sneaky did eat quite a lot of this and Madison did as well. Angus took a piece in his mouth, chewed it to bits, and dropped them all over the carpet.
Clean as a Whistle Wipes – Listed Value $4.99
I have only ever seen these in cat subscription boxes. My cats don’t go outside and carpet stains (hairballs and such) need a more intensive cleaner. I don’t find these to be particularly useful, to be honest.
Collapsible Water Bowl – Listed Value $7.99
I’ve received several of these in cat subscription boxes in the past; they’re only available in massive packages from closeout suppliers. This is going to be most useful if your cat eats kibble (you don’t want to keep wet food open and around for long), although I tend to prefer heavier ceramic dishes that kitties can’t slide across the floor. It may be useful if you are planning to travel, though.
Here are your gratuitous cat photos:
Angus sniffs a treat.
Angus plays with the end of the boxing glove toy.
Madison was heavily under the influence of catnip during this photo session and would play with literally anything I tossed to him.
Lately, Monkey has been getting very excited about cat subscription boxes and then totally not playing along when I actually show him the toys.
Sneaky did like these treats. (And yes, I have horribly dry skin.)
I don’t think Mr. Kitty knew what was going on here but at least he wasn’t hiding under the covers.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $32.95 for the March Pet Gift Box for cats. I mostly had to use values from the information card. There is something I need to bring up here, though. If I don’t seem very enthusiastic about the items in this box, it’s because Pet Gift Box sent the Same Exact Box in March of 2017, down to the item. (And many of those items were repeats from an earlier KitNipBox.) I don’t know what was going on here, and I actually thought last month was pretty good, but it’s like they’re just trying to get rid of old stock here, and it’s not something I’d be happy about if I was a paying subscriber. (For what it’s worth, the treats were not expired.)
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: At a cost of $25 per month, you are paying approximately the following per item:
- Boxing Glove: $6.06
- Tail Pillow: $5.30
- Freeze-dried Chicken Treats: $3.79
