Meowbox September 2019 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 sports theme. There was also a coupon code this month although there’s usually not product literature in this box.

Meowbox September 2019 - Dezi and Roo Wiggly Ball Top

Dezi and Roo Wiggly Ball – Retail Value $3.99

You can see pictures of this out of the package down below. This was pretty awesome according to both Sneaky and Angus. It didn’t make for the best pictures (would’ve been better as video) but they sure had fun. The ball makes it bounce a little, even on carpet, and they liked the tail as well.

Meowbox September 2019 - Feline Fan Finger Top

#1 Feline Fan Catnip Toy – Retail Value $5

This is a little crinkly and it has feathers. It is small enough for tossing around but the feathers were the most interesting to my crew (especially Madison). This has a fuzzy plush texture and catnip (of course).

Meowbox September 2019 - Purr Puck Duo Hockey Top

Purr Puck Duo – Retail Value $8

This has silvervine instead of catnip and the stick part on the hockey stick is an actual silvervine twig. Madison is the silvervine fan in my house but I freaked him out by putting the medal on him (see below) and he wouldn’t do anything for pictures after that. We will try again later when the pressure is off! The puck is a small plush toy good for rolling or tossing around.

Meowbox September 2019 - Furrst Place Medal Top

Furrst Place Medal – Retail Value $5

This has a ribbon with a Velcro closure and yes, I put it on my kitties. Monkey posed, Madison ran off and hid under the bed and it was hard to get this off of him because of that, and Sneaky fought with it. I didn’t even try with Angus because I never would’ve been able to catch him to get it off again. The “medal” part is a catnip plush toy.

Meowbox September 2019 - Pet Greens Cat Craves Top

Pet Greens Cat Craves, Chicken (3 oz) – Retail Value $5

These are semi-moist treats and I already know that my cats love them. I even got Monkey to eat one, and of course Sneaky and Madison were fans. (Angus can’t have them because of his inflammatory bowel disease.) These come in a resealable package and they arrived just in time because I was almost out of suitable treats for giving to Sneaky before and after her asthma inhaler.

Kitty photo time!

These days, Angus only wants to play under the table. Oh well.

Madison has not been an enthusiastic participant in photo sessions lately. I guess he is old and cranky (he turned 12 this year, although Monkey is a little older).

Monkey was a willing participant this time. I felt kind of mean not giving treats to Angus, who clearly wanted them, but Angus can’t have chicken.

I put the medal on Sneaky and she started fighting it. She was very playful (she also enjoyed the treats, but those photos were blurry because she was lunging too close to the camera) for this session.

Verdict: I calculated a total value of $26.99 for September’s Meowbox. That’s a few dollars above the cost of the box and since the toys and treats were all so well-liked by my cats, we are happy. Every single item was a hit with someone (or 2 or 3 cats).

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? It may be too late for the September box, so your subscription would likely start with October, but you can buy some of the individual items from the Meowbox store; just click the links in the item names.

  1. Thanks for the great review, and the kitty pics! Just got our first meowbox (thanks for the coupon, MSA), and my girls are enjoying the toys … and the box. 😉 I’m curious – what food(s) do you give Angus? I have one cat with IBD on a prescription diet, and another who’s starting to show possible sensitivity to chicken. My vet suggested trying a non-chicken, single-protein diet for her but didn’t have specific recommendations, so I’m asking around to see what other people’s cats have enjoyed and tolerated.

    • Sorry, I just saw this now. Angus is my 3rd IBD cat and I also have an IBD dog so I have some opinions.

      Angus is eating Royal Canin Adult HP dry food right now (it’s all he wants) but he keeps gaining weight (he is like 5 pounds overweight at this point) so we are consulting with a veterinary nutritionist for other options.

      Mr. Kitty had IBD and mostly ate duck, different brands. Insinct Limited Ingredient diet has a duck one, and there is a Natural Balance one he was on for awhile, and also a prescription one from Royal Canin (naturally, Angus can’t have duck). Instinct also has a rabbit that may work. Mr. Kitty’s favorite was some goat that got discontinued and some kangaroo that got reformulated and now costs $68 a case so I won’t bother recommending those. ZiwiPeak is kind of expensive but maybe worth a look as well, they had some rabbit and lamb ones a few years back.

      Stay away from turkey which may cross-react in a similar way to chicken. I’d go straight for lamb, rabbit, duck, or maybe venison if you can find it. Just read the labels as they find all kinds of ways to sneak chicken in there. You may have to order a few cases because I have been through Petco, PetSmart, and Pet Supermarket several times each (I keep trying) and they just don’t have much in the way of limited ingredient diets. Chewy has a decent selection and some of the same things are available on Amazon as well. I’d go with a wet food if your cat will eat it and make sure there are added vitamins and taurine (some of the natural brands are just meat, but that doesn’t by itself offer all the nutrients a cat needs, especially if there’s no variety in the diet).

      • Thank you so much for the suggestions! My vet suggested a couple of sensitive-stomach diets, but when I looked at the labels, there was chicken meal in there – sneaky!

  2. I get so much joy from animals, specially for kitties. My kitty of 5 years passed away in Feb from a heartache suddenly so it was hard to look at these reviews. But I just got a kitten from shelter a month ago and my kitty love tank is full again and here I am looking a cat subscription boxes and the cuties kitty photos. You really go all out. ❤Thank you!

  3. The look on Madison’s face with the medal is unreal. Same look I get when I try to sneak antibiotics into Button’s food. “I love this woman, but this is ridiculous. She must think I’m stupid or something.”

    • I have to give enough cat medicines that I just pill them (or use the inhaler, or the oral rinse, or put the transdermal ointment in the ear, or whatever). No sneaking.

      • And I shouldn’t be so scared of putting the pills in her mouth. She has no teeth.

      • Ah, Angus is going to end up that way. He lost 3 (which we didn’t know about), and we did a dental in July or August because of stinky breath and they removed 3 more, and he’s only 3 years old. (Mr. Kitty was 8 before he lost that many teeth.) And then Angus’s breath was stinky again in weeks and his gums were red so we’re doing chlorhexidine rinse for now because he can’t have anesthesia every other month. (This was the vet’s suggestion and it seems to be helping.)
