VetPet Box (Multi-Cat Version) April 2020 Review

Every month, VetPet Box sends toys, supplies, and wellness items:

You always get a pamphlet with information on a health topic. This month’s topic related to activity and mental stimulation. (We don’t show the inside because the information is considered a benefit of subscribing.)

On to the items:

 

AFP Interactives Treat Dispenser – Retail Value $14.99

All right, this took my husband and I longer to set up than it should have (we both have STEM PhDs, maybe we were overthinking it). But anyway, you can attach it to a table or a shelf and your cat can pull the feather and cause treats to come out. I was *this close* to getting Sneaky to figure it out, but I think I might’ve used treats that were a little too big because one didn’t always come out. I expect Madison to be the one to eventually get this. (It is possible some kibbles would fit through the hole better.) Because the box was kind of big, this arrived out of the box and disassembled, but all the parts were there.

Mad Cat Baby Carrot x 2 – Retail Value $6.99 (each)

Mad Cat toys are some of Madison’s favorites but he was a little wary of the camera because I had received three cat subscription boxes in one weekend so I’d been taking a lot of photos, so he didn’t do much with these when I had the camera out, but he played with them later. They have catnip and silvervine, and Madison is particularly susceptible to silvervine.

Hunter Cat Toy Elroy Bunny – Retail Value $6.92

This is a catnip plush with a different texture than the baby carrots, plus various bits of fabric coming off. This is more of a Monkey kind of toy, he likes to lick the body on this (that and rubbing his chin on things are how he shows interest). This is on the small side for wrestling but it is possible.

From the Field Lafonda’s Lollipop – Retail Value $3.20

From the Field toys are universally liked by my cats but this one is really a Madison favorite. The ball is cork but the stick is pure silvervine. I got Sneaky to bite this, too. (You can see it out of the package below; I like to leave these in the bag until use to preserve freshness.)

AFP Flash Ball x 2 – Retail Value $3.29 (each)

And here is another Monkey favorite. These have a silicone outer covering and when they hit the floor or a wall (basically any impact) they light up. Monkey is my kitty who plays with balls and rolls them around the house (or in the bathtub, which is kind of nice because he can’t lose them under furniture that way).

Catit Creamy Lickable Treats (salmon, 2 count) – Buy a 5-pack for $2.99

This is a popular style of treat now. Monkey is a snob and will only eat the Inaba ones, but Sneaky and Madison think these are great and you should definitely check out the photos of them enjoying these, below. This is a kind of thick liquid or paste consistency with a little bit of fish flavor.

Granville Island Pet You’re Playing My Tuna (15g) – Retail Value $8.99

These are tuna flakes. I expect they are expensive because (1) they are a Canadian brand that is somewhat rare in the US and (2) they are single-ingredient (fish) treats. Sometimes when Monkey is working on a hairball (this is a weeklong process for him) and doesn’t want to eat much, I sprinkle tuna flakes on his food to entice him to eat, so that’s what’ll happen with these.

Granville Island Pet All of a Sardine I Was Hungry (50g) – Retail Value $8.99

These are so gross, whole little fish with the eyes and everything. I don’t have pictures of the cats eating them because I can’t bring myself to touch them. But I did put a few on the floor (by gently dumping them out of the bag) and Sneaky thought they were pretty great. This is the same brand as above; I guess sardines are cheaper than tuna because the package weight here is higher for the same price.

Kitty photos:

 

Verdict: I calculated a total value of about $64.85 for the April VetPet Box for cats. I am still holding out hope that my cats (or at least one of them) will figure out the treat dispenser. The toys, otherwise, seem well-chosen, as each of them appeals to at least one or two of my cats (remember, this is the multi-cat box). The lickable treats were a huge success, Sneaky liked the sardines, and they all liked the tuna. There also just felt like there was a lot of stuff in here, and all of it was something you could easily purchase again if you wanted to (no closeouts here).

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? New subscribers usually get an introductory box. However, if you contact VetPet Box, you can get a past month’s box (like say you really want to get the dental one more than once, because your cat has bad teeth).

COUPON: Use code VetPet15MSA to save $15 off your first box!

  1. I got a completely different set of items in my April box, a candle as the main item and the rest Mexico-themed (kinda?). Slightly disappointed actually, didn’t sign up for a candle, I’d prefer to choose my own scent on these (though I do appreciate that it’s pet friendly, it is tricky to find those!)

  2. Looks like a really great box this month! Pics are great as always. My cats also like the bonito (tuna) flakes, but I buy them at the Asian supermarket in my city because they are sooooo much cheaper.
