Meowbox September 2018 “Back To School” Review

Meowbox has a lot of exclusive toys that are usually pretty popular with my cats. From my perspective, it’s nice to see some things that don’t turn up in other cat subscription boxes:

The information card typically just gives a URL for finding out more information about the items in the box. The picture is adorable, as usual. This month had a back to school theme.

Apple Rattle Ball

Apple Rattle Ball – Retail Value $5

I think the faces on Meowbox toys are just adorable. This is a small rattle ball with a soft outer coating. Angus and Monkey are my kitties who enjoy rattle balls the most, so I have put this in our home office where they can play with it all night if they want, without waking us up!

Pencil Kicker

Pencil Kicker – Retail Value $7

This is a larger catnip toy, meant to be a kicker style toy. It also has feathers coming out the end, which were the main draw for my cats the first time I gave this to them. The feathers seem securely attached, which is important since my kitties can be a little violent with feather toys.

Catnip Peanut Butter and Jelly – Retail Value $5

This is a catnip plush (non-rattle) with another cute happy face. This is a good size for catching on a claw and tossing. I’ve put this one in the area where Sneaky hangs out before mealtimes as I have caught her (on numerous occasions) playing specifically with Meowbox toys there.

The Purrfect Grade Wand

The Purrfect Grade Wand – Retail Value $10

This is a dangly felt catnip toy on a wand. I think this was the most popular item in this month’s box (wand toys usually are well-loved by my crew, especially Sneaky and Angus). My cats were a little rough with this but it is still in one piece, so that is also good.

Caledon Farms Chicken Bites – Retail Value $3.99

These are made in Canada. What is nice about them is that the pieces are small and uniform (some of the other freeze-dried meats are really too big for a lot of cats to easily eat). Sneaky, Madison, and Monkey all enjoyed these (Mr. Kitty and Angus can’t have chicken).

Kitty photos:

Madison investigates the wand while looking like a total derp.

He was also REALLY into rubbing his head on things when I took these pictures.

Here he is with a treat.

Haha, I caught Sneaky NOT looking bored while she played with a toy.

Back to normal.

Here she is eating treats.

Angus’s favorite part of the wand was the string.

Monkey isn’t too active this week. I think he is working on a giant hairball. But here he is with some items from the box.

Mr. Kitty is back. He is feeling much better now that he has been on insulin for a while. He still can’t see well (and probably never will again) but his activity level is 1000% better.

Verdict: I calculated a value of $30.99 for the September Meowbox. That is a good amount over the cost of the subscription for a cat subscription box. I loved all the happy faces on the toys and my cats liked the toys, as well (and those who could eat the treats were also fans). I thought this month did a nice job of matching items to a theme while still providing different toy types, as well.

  1. I ordered this box based upon your reviews. My cat Meadow not only hangs out at the box every evening, she smelled it is soon as I brought it in from the mail. I opened the box and she dove in it like it was a feather bed.

    • I think they spray something in the boxes to make it more attractive to cats. Mine react to the actual box for this one, too.

  2. angus, you’re out of your cone! happy day!!!!
    and mr kitty, looking fantastic! all of the kitties bring me such joy. sweet babies. 🙂

  3. Just here for cat pics…
