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 – 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 – 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 – 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).
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.
