A6 Spring Cat Memo Pad

This might be the cutest little kitty notebook ever. I love the blush cover color and the simple but darling neko illustration. Inside is graph paper which is really handy to keep in my purse as I do tons of list writing and sketching and I appreciate the helpful lines. I also just love this cat because its mix of patterns reminds me of an abstract version of my cat, Birdie, who also has a little bit of everything: stripes, orange spots, white feet!

Spring Cat Mini Letterset

These chubby little calico kitties are beyond cute. This mini notecard set has a total of 15 sheets, 5 envelopes, and 6 stickers. I love the minimal design and the handsome kraft paper envelopes. These would be perfect for writing little notes to your fellow cat lover.

Spring Cat Balloon Stickers

These funny stickers feature cats (and one little mouse!) as charming balloons. They are on a clear shiny film. They would make the perfect stickers to seal envelopes or just stick all over the place for a smile.

Signo Fine Green Ballpen

This is one fine tipped pen! The spring green color is really unique and beautiful. I do a lot of sketching on the go and this might be my new go-to for quickly creating grass in many springtime landscape doodles.

Pink Sign Pen

I love pink and I love marker pens, so this is a new addition to my collection that I just love! The tip is very bold and HOT pink!

Monpuchi Cat Washi Tape

This washi tape is so delightfully odd! Covered in a ton of animals (cats, birds, dogs, A BULL?) and a very random assortment of foods and kitchen items. There is even a butcher knife hidden in this print. What are these animals up to!?

Cat Eraser

Finally, our last item is the worlds cutest white kitten eraser. This delightful meow-meow has so much detail, even footie pads! You can use it to erase your daily mistakes, top off your fave pencil, or just make it a non-functional desk accessory, as I did.

Verdict: Zakka Kit was all about cats this month and I am here for it! I absolutely love when stationary and cats are combined, and this box was a lot of fun. My favorite item would be the pink notebook because I love the color, the graph paper is great, and that weird little cat reminds me of my own. I also loved both pens and the mini notecards are too cute. The washi tape was so weird and that is a plus in my book. I also never hate getting stickers and the adorable cat eraser now lives comfortably on my desk. This is my favorite box from this sub yet!

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

  1. Dang I need to do a better job at monitoring this sub, I’ve been waiting for when they have another cat-themed box. And Birdie is so cute!

  2. Loved the items, review and especially the cat

    • Birdie is pretty awesome! Glad you enjoyed the review Adeline!

  3. I believe this is the April box. May is going to be vintage Japan themed, and June will be moon and stars themed.

    • Let me peek into this tomorrow Emily! Thanks for the heads up. And MOON & STARS? YESSS.

  4. Beautiful cat…. I mean just gorgeous.

    • Thanks Ronda! She is a good one.

  5. Not that anyone cares, but I went straight to Neko Box (new favorite site) and purchased the Spring Cats box. Thank you MSA for all the cool stuff you lead me to.

    • Yay! I am glad you grabbed it up. I adore the pink notebook so much.

  6. OMG! I want this so bad! Stationery, cats, Japan & cuteness are some of my favorite things. I am going to reach out to customer service & beg for this box. Lifetime subscription? Sure thing if I can start with that box. And that was a great review too.

    • And your Birdie is a super cute kitty.

      • You do have such a cute and cuddly looking cat! I once had a cat eraser pencil topper in 2nd grade that went missing. It is 30 years later and I still miss it. I just may have to buy one, so that that whole in my child like heart can finally be filled. 🙂

        • It is so funny how we remember and get attached to random objects. I know exactly what you are talking about though. I have a mug that went missing from when I was little and I swear I think of it all the time.

      • Aww thanks! She is a rescue and I just love her! This sub is ALMOST as cute.
