meowbox November 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 New York City theme. There was also a coupon for one of the products in the box.
Mew York Bagel Toy
This is a catnip plush and as it turns out, a perfect size for wrestling. Sneaky rubbed her face on this but wouldn’t do anything while the camera was on, but Angus had loads of fun. You can see him with it below.
Statue of Libpurrty Toy 2-Pack
I tried to put the crown part on Monkey but he wouldn’t look at the camera. I don’t really think it’s meant to be worn, anyway. It’s more a case of cats liking ribbons. The torch has some interesting texture on the flame part that the kitties spent some time investigating, as well.
Crochet Kitty Taxi Cat Toy
This is a handmade felt toy; you’ll see the Crochet Kitty brand in meowbox pretty frequently. Angus and Monkey enjoyed this one. It is an ideal size for my cats as they tend to prefer small toys over large ones.
Pizza Rat Wand
If you don’t know about pizza rat, watch this video first (it’s short). That’s the inspiration for this wand toy, which I think is really clever. The cats liked this toy as well, I even got Monkey and Sneaky to play with it a little (of course Angus played with it a lot, and rather violently at that).
Love, Nala Tuna and Salmon in Broth Wet Cat Food (2.8 oz) – Buy 12 cans for $14.19
This was probably included as a promotional item but I don’t mind (hence the coupon that was also included). I was looking for some wet food to tempt Madison and Monkey and this brand was new to me. And it’s nice to try it before ordering a whole case, you know? Anyway, Monkey is a big fan of fish so he liked this. Madison nibbled at a bit (he’s afraid of many new things) and Sneaky finished it off. (Angus can’t have it.)
Pawsitively Canadian Turkey Functional Formula Cat Treats (25g)
This is, as you can guess from the name, a Canadian brand, and I couldn’t find this product for sale on their website, which is too bad, as my cats really liked these a lot. Madison is a fan of turkey, always has been, and he even came out from his hiding spot under the bed for these treats. Sneaky of course wanted to eat them all, and Monkey even ate one. These are semi-moist treats that are supposed to have some health benefits. (I imagine you’d have to feed them for awhile to see the effects.)
Gratuitous cat photos (there are a lot this time):
Angus checks out the box contents. In case you were wondering, his toes that were injured a few weeks ago are looking much better.
If you look closely, you can see where the claws are missing.
Angus with the pizza rat wand. If you think he looks obese, it’s because he is, but we are working with the vet and a nutritionist on this issue.

Madison wouldn’t get too close to me. He has been kind of skittish lately.
Sneaky kept butting in when I was trying to give Madison treats. I’m not sure what Monkey is doing in the background.
He did get to eat a few that Sneaky didn’t steal.
Monkey spent an excessive amount of time rubbing his face on the box.
He ate a couple of treats, too. (He is not usually food-motivated.)
He played with the wand toy.
And he rolled around on several of the other toys, too.
I like how one tooth shows here.
Sneaky investigates some of the other toys. She rubbed her face all over the bagel but it was hard to take a picture of.
Sneaky ate a lot of treats.
And she played with the wand for a bit, as well.
Verdict: I couldn’t calculate a total value for November’s meowbox because the items weren’t yet for sale in their shop. They will likely show up later, however, sometimes it takes them a few weeks. My cats had more fun with this box than they have had with any cat subscription box for a long time. I mean, they liked absolutely everything. This was a great box and taking kitty photos really improved my mood and I needed that after a hard week, so it was therapeutic for me, too!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? It may be too late for the November box, so your subscription would likely start with December, but you can buy some of the individual items from the meowbox store; just wait a week or two for the items to show up as they’re not listed yet.
Value Breakdown: At $22.95 for the subscription plus free shipping, you are paying approximately $3.82 per item.
