Target Pet Box for Cats May 2019 - Info 1 Target Pet Box for Cats May 2019 - Info 2

Here is the info sheet for the box. We also got a coupon for $5 off a $20 pet purchase, which I will definitely be putting to use!

Target Pet Box for Cats May 2019 - Sheba 1 Target Pet Box for Cats May 2019 - Sheba 2

Sheba Perfect Portions Cuts in Gourmet Chicken and Tuna Entrée, 2 servings – Retail Value $0.85

I use wet food more as a treat for Duchess than as a meal replacement because she is dainty and better at portion control than I am. Even though one pod is considered one serving, Duchess only eats a little bit at a time and likes to come back for seconds and thirds with large chunks of time in between. That doesn't really work for wet food, but she enjoyed tasting this grain-free blend of chicken and tuna (plus I like that chicken and chicken broth are the first two ingredients on the list!).

Sheba Meaty Tender Sticks With Chicken, 5 treats – Retail Value $1.59

These meat sticks are dairy and grain free, and I like that the first three ingredients are chicken, pork, and pork liver. Duchess was more interested in rubbing her chin against these and playing with them, but when I looked away I definitely caught her nibbling out of the corner of my eye.

Temptations Treats for Cats, 1.7 oz – Buy the 3 oz bag for $1.59

Duchess actually isn’t a huge fan of treats (I would give more to her if I actually knew she would eat them), but she gave these a few sniffs. To be honest, I’m glad she didn’t love these - the first three ingredients are chicken by-product meal, ground corn, and animal fat.

Friskies Party Mix in Original Crunch, 2.1 oz  - Retail Value $1.59

These are another snack that Duchess sniffed but didn’t deign to eat (I guess I asked for this when I named her Duchess), and while I like that these help to clean your cats teeth these have another ingredients list I am not psyched about- top ingredients include animal fat and corn gluten meal, though chicken meal is the first ingredient.

Blue Buffalo For Cats Dry Food Chicken and Brown Rice, 4 oz – Buy a 3-pound bag for $11.99

Blue Buffalo is actually what I exclusively feed Duchess, though I usually reach for the grain-free hairball control version due to her fluff. This is actually the exact version that my mom feeds her cats, though, and whenever I take Duchess home that is what she eats with no complaints. Whenever people meet Duchess they almost always compliment how soft her fur is, and I think a big part of that is the high quality of Blue Buffalo food- the first three ingredients in this one is deboned chicken, chicken meal, and fish meal (for those Omega 3’s!).

Blue Buffalo Kitty Cravings Crunchy Cat Treats with Chicken, 2 oz – Retail Value $1.99

I am stoked that there are TWO Blue Buffalo products included in this box- and these treats were the clear winner, with Duchess happily eating them after giving them a few sniffs. I really appreciate that I can pronounce all of the ingredients in these treats (and know what they all are!), and the first three ingredients are deboned chicken, chicken meal, and brown rice.

The Verdict: I am happy with this pet box from Target. Sheba was a new brand to me and I liked their ingredients, and I am always happy to see Blue Buffalo for Duchess! The retail value for everything except the Blue Buffalo food and the Temptations Treats was $6.02, but I think the value for the remaining two puts it over the $10.00 cost of the box. If this is a box you’re interested in, Target usually discounts these boxes at the end of the month and currently, this box is available for $7.00.

To Wrap Up:

Can you get this box if you sign up today? Yes, as of publication, this box is still available (and it is on sale for $7!)

Value Breakdown: This box costs $10 + free shipping, which means that each of the 6 items in the box has an average cost of $1.67.

I am a staunch believer that pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza and when I’m not working as a family law attorney I enjoy hiking the Louisiana trails (alligator sightings are a favorite!) or relaxing with Duchess, my cat. I’m a sucker for anything labeled a mystery box and I’ve never met a bath bomb I didn’t like.

Still @ Target but is now $10. I never ever knew they did this, they sure don’t publicize it. Random thought-if your cat doesn’t eat some of this it could be donated possibly to a pet shelter or cat rescue or in my case, my vet has a donation basket for pet food/treats that he donates to animals in need.

We just adopted a cat who is a straight up scavenger, and will eat anything we accidentally leave out. He would not touch the Sheba stick treats, which is what I was most excited for him to try. Still a good value though.

I just ordered mine! I’ve got two kitties that love treats (1 that does not need any though, lol!) I get Barkbox for my dogs and they also get a monthly delivery of yak chews from Amazon. I’d love to get my kitties a box but all the cat subscription boxes come with toys and my cats aren’t really into cat toys, even if they were my monster dogs would probably eat the toys whole so…. This Target box is great for what I need!

My cats tore through this box the first time, and especially loved the stick shaped treats. I just ordered another one and I know it will be gone quickly. I hope that target does these more often, since my cats are spoiled and like to get things in the mail too.

Mine are definitely spoiled too! My youngest, Max, loves any kind of package delivery because no matter how big or small the box is, he MUST get in it. He’s naturally a larger cat plus has some extra weight on him but manages to squeeze into and hang out in boxes that look impossible to contain him. I
I ordered this box as well and almost everything was a hit with both. Max didn’t care for the Sheba but my 19 year old little princess LOVED it. They were both interested in the meat sticks but couldn’t figure out, or rather just didn’t want to be bothered with, how to eat them quickly and easily. Once I tore them into bites along the notches on the sticks they gobbled them right up. The Blue Buffalo brand just won’t do at my house. I ’ve tried several varieties since it’s supposed to be much healthier but neither cat will touch it. They’d sooner just survive on treats alone. It probably wouldn’t be that hard since they’re so very spoiled. 😄
I didn’t know the boxes were still available so thanks, Jessica! They were a great value before but at $7 they’re quite a bargain!

Blue buffalo isn’t healthier, they just have a very slick marketing campaign, if it makes you feel any better. 😊

I think mine liked the stick treats so much because the packaging kept the treat moist until opened. Sometimes, it seems like the treats that come in larger packages tend to dry out or get stale before they have eaten them all, or maybe my cats are just that finicky. My kitties get access to most of my delivery boxes too, which means they get a fresh cardboard box to play in at least weekly because of my extensive sub box habit. 🙂

Wow! I’d buy at least four or five at that price! Was it in-store or online?

Rocky loved this box and “discovered” the Sheba sticks, which I have since reordered in large quantities.

I pay $1.79 for 1.7oz. and $3.29 for the 3.4 oz. Temptations, so at $7 it’s actually an even better deal. Thanks for the heads up!

My cat doesn’t understand the concept of dry treats but if he liked them I would be all over this box. It was a pretty good deal at ten dollars but the price drop makes it an even better bargain.

Sneaky would’ve eaten every single thing in this box. Madison likely, too, and Monkey probably would’ve tried some of it.

I don’t worry so much about treat ingredients as mine don’t get too much of any one treat at a time. We actually buy giant tubs of Temptations to give to Sneaky before and after her asthma inhaler — since she is so food-motivated, it works, and it is easier than chasing her. (My cats tend not to like the all-natural, limited-ingredient treats like freeze-dried meat very much, anyway.)
