Pet Treater Cat Pack September 2018 Review

There’s not a traditional information card with this subscription, but you get a couple of inserts including a humorous sticker.

Sergeant’s Crazy Claws Puff Bunny

This brand shows up fairly often in this subscription and I can almost never find these items for retail sale from US-based sites. This is a small(ish) toy and it has a lot of different textures going on, which is something my cats enjoy quite a bit. (Most of them are seniors and less active these days, but interesting things still get licked and sniffed regularly.)

Billy Cat Supply Cat String Toy Collection

Here is another item I was having trouble finding online. There is a plush frog (?) on one end and a netted “string” and then a plush ball on the other end. I am guessing these have catnip in them, too, based on my cats’ reaction. Anyway, this thing was hugely popular, especially with Sneaky and Angus.

Havepaws Jerky Chips in Cheeky Chicken

Havepaws Jerky Chips in Cheeky Chicken – Buy 4 oz for $7.50

I have received this item in numerous cat subscription boxes in the past. It makes for some good pictures of cats biting the huge pieces, but they really can’t eat it unless you break off a little bit. Sneaky and Madison were fans. (Angus is currently off all chicken due to an allergy-related food trial or he probably would’ve liked it too.) I notice, however, that my old links for this item are no good any longer and that it is out of stock at a lot of places and I kind of wonder what that means. Also, I’m not sure of the package size we received, it seems like a sample or small package.

Custom-Printed Tea Towel

Lately, Pet Treater has been putting in an item printed with their logo for the fourth item in the package, and it’s typically an item meant for people (not cats). Last month, for example, it was an insulated drink holder (koozie) and this month, it is a tea towel. I will be honest, this is not the greatest quality compared to other tea towels I own. Although I do appreciate the sentiment on the graphic. (A lot of food cooked at our house ends up with stray hairs from Monkey in it.)

Angus had a lot of fun with the “string” toy. Most of the pictures were action shots that didn’t come out, and for some reason, he only wanted to play from the dining room chairs. Oh well. He IS a cat. As you can see in the second picture, his eosinophilic plaque has healed up nicely and the fur is growing back in. So we took the e-collar off.

I like the second picture a lot. Madison didn’t want to play but he was all about licking this treat.

Monkey just wanted to sniff things. I think he was sleepy.

I like how Sneaky looks bored even when she is playing with a toy.

Sorry if the pictures of Mr. Kitty are a little blurry. He closes his eye if he hears the signal that the flash is going off, so I have to take photos of him without the flash.

He REALLY wanted these treats but they are wrong for him on a number of levels. Like, he can’t have chicken and he can’t chew. But at least he got a sniff. His diabetes is really stabilizing, he is much more active than a few weeks ago and he has his appetite back. Right now he is eating kangaroo for his main food.

Verdict: I couldn’t calculate a total value for the September 2018 Pet Treater Cat Pack because several items were not available online (custom-printed for the box or just not turning up via Google searches).  Although Sneaky and Madison did like the treats, they had a hard time eating very many pieces and this item seems to be out of stock at a lot of major retailers. I do wish we’d received one more item for cats instead of something with the Pet Treater logo printed on it since there aren’t many items in this subscription to begin with, but then again, this is pretty inexpensive as cat subscriptions go and the “string” toy was quite popular.

To Wrap Up:

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

LIMITED TIME DEAL: For a limited time, use coupon code YESMEOW to get your first Pet Treater Cat Pack for only $5!

  1. one thing about that jerky treat in there this month:

    apparently, you are SUPPOSED to “chip” it into teeny pieces for the furballs–once i really read the package, i realized this, ’cause, i was thinking, “geez, my cats can’t chew this stuff!”

    but, once i broke it–and it it is HARD–my babies loved it, ate up every tiny bit!

    • I do mention that when I talk about it under the item photo. It’s just that the big pieces are funnier for pictures with cats.

      • 🤣🤣
        my guys loved licking it, too!
        but, geez-o-pete, that stuff hurts my fingers chipping it up!🤣🤣

  2. I had a good laugh when I saw the tea towel. It seems so appropriate right now – I recently learned that one of my cats has food allergies and possibly irritable bowel disease. He won’t eat the relevant commercial foods. So I’ll be cooking his meals “from scratch”!

    And Ragan, I just have to ask – kangaroo meat?

    • If you ever have questions about inflammatory bowel disease (kind of different in cats and dogs as compared to people) just ask me because I think I know most of it. Mr. Kitty is my second IBD cat (has lived with it 6 years) and Nyx also has it. Proper diagnosis involves endoscopy and biopsy, which can run into the low 4 figures.

      There is a brand from New Zealand that sells kangaroo cat food. Although it is out of stock everywhere right now so we are going for eel next. We have to do all-meat food also because Mr. Kitty has also developed diabetes from many years on his IBD medications (so no carbs for him). He does OK on rabbit, duck, goat, kangaroo, lamb, and venison, but most of the commercial rabbit, duck, and venison have chicken or pork ingredients in them — bad for IBD, or stuff like potato starch or chickpeas — bad for diabetes. Sometimes he won’t eat his food either. He is on two appetite stimulants and sometimes I force-feed him with a catheter tip syringe (we puree all his food with water because he has bad teeth and can’t chew).

    • I loved that towel and would love a cute tee for me with that saying because it’s PRICELESS….

      • the towel is great–it is just like the ones i’ve always used in restaurant kitchens…100% no-lint cotton, & it’s huge…perfect for glasses, hands and just everything!

        i get 2 of these bags a month, because i have too many kitties–no judging!😻–and, i have had excellent experience with CS…a couple months ago, i accidentally got placed on a list for “potential” customers…i wrote back, saying i’m already a customer, & please, stop with the emails…i was stunned, when she wrote back, apologizing profusely, & put an extra toy in BOTH my bags that month, just to smooth things over!

        true, you do have to physically call to unsubscribe, but, i unsubbed from another of the “jammin’ butter” subs, & it was no problem, at all…

        • Oh, I never thought about glasses because I don’t wash any dishes by hand.

          • it’s perfect for fine glassware, like crystal, & bone china tea cups…that kind of thing…

            and jelly jars and mason jars, too!😁

    • Hahaha…I didn’t know that was a tea towel. I was thinking of using it for rolls at Thanksgiving. I suppose it can be whatever I want it to be. I like this subscription so far, and have had no issues. Still chuckling about the tea towel..😻

  3. Just be aware that’s its a huge pain to cancel this box!! You can’t do it online/via email. You have to call, but they never answer their calls or respond to voice messages. PLUS, if you do attempt to cancel but they dont respond back to you and still send you a box they will refuse to refund you!!

    • Thank you for this info. I’d been considering getting this sub for my kitties but my #1 gripe about sub boxes is when they’re a pain to cancel.

      • One time they charged me four times in a month and refunded me five times, then they said there was a problem with my card (there wasn’t) and canceled the subscription on me (you may have noticed one month recently the box didn’t get reviewed). No idea what brought that on.

      • i have never had an issue cancelling any of the “jammin’ butter” or “that daily deal” subs, & i found the CS to be most accomodating–even giving me 2 extra toys for a simple email flub-up…

        this is a great little $13 pet sub…they have a dog one, too!
