KitNipBox May 2018 Review
KitNipBox has monthly themes. Around holidays, they are holiday themes, but you can never predict what it’ll be at other times:
The information card included a list of items in the box. They included values and I have used a lot of these below because KitNipBox toys can be hard to find for sale online. This month had a rainy tea party theme.
‘R Squad Purrl Grey Tea Toss Toy – Listed Value $5
This is a soft, lightweight catnip pillow toy. Sometimes Mr. Kitty will actually show interest in these, although this was more of an Angus item this time. This is a great size for tossing around and I just know I will find it down on the first floor of the house next week or something. Because that’s what Angus does.
The treats this month are freeze-dried chicken. Sneaky ate a few (Sneaky will eat almost anything) and Angus ate one, but by and large, my cats are just not fans of freeze-dried meat.
Best Pet Grey Motorized Hamster – Listed Value $3
This is one of those toys where you pull a little string in back and it vibrates. I tried this with most of the cats and got very little reaction. It’s a little heavy because of the motor mechanism, but I think someone has been batting it around because it’s moved across the bedroom floor at some point.
Leap Delicious Catnip Donut – Listed Value $5
This is another one Angus likes, and Mr. Kitty seemed to like cuddling it. I will admit to putting Monkey’s tail through the donut hole. He walked around like that for awhile before it fell off. I think he was not amused. (This one is a catnip plush, too.)
SFG Dangling Doormouse – Listed Value $6
Dangler toys are tied with wand toys as my cats’ favorites. Naturally, my cats prefer the wrong end (Madison really liked chewing on the elastic, so this one now has a home on a high shelf so he can’t get ahold of it unsupervised).
All for Paws Cream and Sugar Wand – Listed Value $7
Here is a wand toy with catnip plushes and lots of interesting textures. Sneaky and Angus are my wand toy fans and both of them liked this.
All for Paws Crinkle Tea Pot – Listed Value $4
Here is the last catnip toy; this is flatter than some of the others and crinkles. Madison really likes the yarn texture on this one and of course Monkey wanted to rub his chin on it (that is Monkey’s standard response to all items you hold up in front of him, though, from phones to pliers to lipstick tubes).
Gratuitous cat photo time:
Angus liked the wand. (That is a very small part of my beading stash you see behind him.)
Angus did eat one treat but he wasn’t interested in more after that.
Monkey sniffs the teapot.
Monkey with the donut on his tail. He hasn’t been in a playful mood lately, I guess he is just getting older. (I think he is maybe 12 but that is speculation. I have had him since late 2007.)
Mr. Kitty has taken up residence on this old sofa lately. I think he likes it because it is low so it is easier for him to get up on (he doesn’t have to guess as much when he jumps, which is nice since he can barely see anymore).
I usually end up bleeding after giving Sneaky treats.
Naturally, the camera went off a split second AFTER she bit the wand.
Madison is not amused by being posed with toys.
These are a little hard to see because Madison and the string on the dangler are both black, but here he is, biting and pulling on the string. He was having so much fun.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $33.29 for the May KitNipBox. That is a few dollars above the month-to-month cost of the box. One thing I think KitNipBox does a good job of is sticking to a theme without forcing it (like a box I received once, that shall remain nameless, that had a “zoo” theme and included a US Army-licensed stuffed bear). I appreciate the variety of toy textures once again and also that everything was on the small/lightweight side. I do, however, wish that cat subscription boxes would let you opt out of freeze-dried meat treats, as my cats are just not fans.
