KitNipBox October 2018 Review
KitNipBox has monthly themes. Around holidays, there are holiday themes, but you can never predict what it’ll be at other times. This month it was a deli theme.
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.
Max Hoagie Roll – Listed Value $5
This is a small catnip plush that is a little bit fuzzy (but a different fuzzy than the rest of the toys). Since my cats appreciate both small toys (Angus takes them all over the house) and toys with interesting textures, this was a hit.
Kitty Cat Sweet Cravings Donut – Listed Value $5
This is a felt catnip plush. I think the details are pretty cute. I will admit, I put this around Monkey’s tail and he didn’t like it very much. (The pictures didn’t turn out.) This is a good size for my older kitties to roll around on.
All for Paws Chicken Leg – Listed Value $5
This is another toy with an interesting texture, and it’s small enough for Angus to be quite interested (this is another one I’ll find downstairs in the morning!). This is as close to chicken as Angus will get for the foreseeable future since he is still having food issues.
Wellness Kittles Grain Free Whitefish and Cranberries Recipe Crunchy Cat Treats – Retail Value $2.49 (found here for $2.37)
We’ve received various flavors of Kittles treats in lots of cat subscription boxes, but my cats seem to like them. They are crunchy treats that are grain-free and they are pretty small. I like to use them to entice Sneaky to be good for her asthma treatments.
Premium Catnip Pillow – Listed Value $3
This has a BELL so my cats think it is awesome. I’ve had to put it up on a high shelf so they don’t find it in the night. This is relatively small and soft.
Kitty Cat Crispy Carrot – Listed Value $5
Here is another felt catnip toy, this time, a carrot. This is somewhat smaller and lighter in weight than the donut, and the felt “leaves” are a nice feature. Mr. Kitty spent some time investigating them.
Max Catnip Tomato Pillow – Listed Value $5
Here is yet another felt catnip toy. Now, my cats do like them, but I know there is more variety in cat toys out there than we are seeing this month. (Though I do think they did a good job of sticking to the deli theme.) This is another one good for rolling around on top of (this is something several of my cats do now).
All for Paws Taco Toss Toy – Listed Value $5
This has some felt parts but also a fuzzy “shell” and some stringy “cheese” pieces. I really like the combination of textures here, and so do my cats. This is small and a good size for tossing, and no one has managed to rip it apart yet.
Gratuitous cat photos:
Angus wanted to take pictures on the table. He was very happy to be out of his e-collar.
Madison liked the treats. The camera had trouble focusing on him for some of these photos, though.
There, proof that Madison really isn’t a fuzzy blur.
Monkey rubs his chin on things.
And I got him to eat a treat (Monkey is not usually food-motivated).
Sneaky was always butting in when I was giving treats to other cats.
Sneaky is only interested in real food. The scratch on my thumb is from her grabbing my hand in the picture just above this one…
Mr. Kitty was sleepy. FYI, he is on some new eye ointment that goes everywhere when I try to apply it, so he looks a little oily, but he is doing OK. We go back to the veterinary ophthalmologist next week.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $35.49 for the November KitNip Box. I know I haven’t provided links for most of the products, and that’s because I can’t usually find these brands for sale at retail prices online. I do occasionally see these brands in other cat subscription boxes, and I have found them at wholesale websites before (just not with retail prices), so while I don’t think you would be able to find some (or all) of these items at stores, I feel like Kitnipbox is probably sourcing them from wholesale suppliers, which is a perfectly reasonable thing to do. Anyway, the treats were pretty popular and outside of that, I think the taco or the catnip pillow was the most popular item. I felt this month was a little lacking in terms of toy variety, in that we received quite a few different felt catnip plushes, but there was a little texture variety and my cats were definitely fans of that.
