Meowbox December 2018 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 holiday theme.
Elf Hat Catnip Toy
I think I must’ve been one of the first people to get the December box because it looks like last month’s items are still up at the URL given on the information card, so I haven’t provided any prices here. Anyway, this is a catnip toy with something crinkly inside (it is not really big enough to put on a cat’s head). It is pretty lightweight and my kitties were up for rubbing their chins on it.
Peppurrmint Candy Toy
This was a hit, but I suspected it would be due to the dangling ribbon things. Angus liked it and Sneaky swatted it right out of my hand and stole it for herself (naturally when the camera wasn’t on). This is a small catnip plush.
The Empurrium Handmade Catnip Snow Globe Toy
This is a handmade felt catnip toy with no extra stuffing (though it seems durable so hopefully that won’t be an issue). My cats like the texture of the felt.
Caledon Farms Beef Liver Bites, 0.75 oz
You’ll get treats like this fairly often in Meowbox. These are tiny cubes of freeze-dried beef liver. I let Sneaky and Madison eat out of the carton since I was worried about getting bitten. They both enjoyed these. Monkey didn’t really care, and of course, Mr. Kitty and Angus have dietary issues.
Kiss Me Meow Mistletoe Wand
This was a huge hit and I probably got the best pictures with it. Angus loved it and, don’t tell Sneaky, but she liked the same toy as Angus (even though she doesn’t like Angus…). I guess they were in the mood for playing when I had the camera out, and you can see some of the results below.
Gratuitous cat photos:
Angus was really into this box’s items. He gets pretty excited whenever I open any box, though, even if it’s not for cats.
Madison mostly wanted to be left alone, but he did like the treats.
Monkey got up on the table where I was taking pictures to rub his face on things. (That’s the snow globe toy in the second picture; it’s kind of hard to see.)
This picture makes me giggle.
Sneaky mostly lives for food (here in this last photo she’s so enthusiastic she bit the carton) but she did show more interest than usual in the toys this month.
Mr. Kitty was sleepy so I posed him with a toy. His eye is actually doing well, it’s his ointment that makes the discharge look bad. He goes back to the veterinary ophthalmologist this week. (And, woohoo, he gained 1.5 pounds so he is back up to where he was before diabetes kicked in.)
Verdict: I couldn’t calculate a total value for the December Meowbox since the items were not yet up at the URL listed on the information card (they’re mostly custom-made for this box). But, I’d say these box contents were representative of what you’d receive in a typical month and everything was a hit with at least one (usually more than that) cat.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? I feel like this box came super early for me (earlier than their usual shipping time) so it’s possible you would. Otherwise, watch the Meowbox site as some of the individual items may go on sale.
