meowbox is a monthly subscription box for cats filled with fun, unique toys and natural, grain-free, organic, or locally-made treats.
FYI, COVID-19 Update: meowbox is currently experiencing some shipping delays. Please allow an extra 5-7 days for delivery! Also, one item from the box was a bit late from the manufacturer this month, so it shipped about a week later than usual.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

meowbox September 2020 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 slumber party theme.
On to the items:
Marshmallow Midnight Snack - Retail Value $5
The stick part here is silvervine, which my cats (particularly Madison) seem to enjoy. Everyone thought this was worth at least a long sniff and both the stick end and the marshmallow end were popular. (You can see it out of the package in the cat photos below.)
Kettle Craft Canadian Prairie Chicken Recipe (3 oz) - Retail Value $2.99
This treat does not seem to be available online (it is a Canadian brand) but, oddly, is available in-store in Pet Supermarket, which is not too far from my house. (Pet Supermarket is a chain with most locations in the US South and Southeast.) These are semi-moist treats that were not at all stinky and all three of my cats really seemed to like them. They're made in Canada so should be fine from a food safety perspective.
Goodnight Moon Catnip Bouncing Toy
This is a finger dangler toy. In addition to the toy being pretty cute (all the plush meowbox toys are), Sneaky absolutely loved it. You can see pictures of her playing with it below. Most months you will receive a wand or dangler toy in this box and they are always well-received.
Tabby's Tooth Polish (2 pack)
These are a few plush toys on the small-to-medium side, which is what my cats tend to prefer. Monkey seemed particularly interested in them although Madison also enjoyed the little "toothpaste" ribbons.
Cat Nap Sleep Mask
This is another plush toy, medium-sized, and my cats' favorite part was the ribbons. Sadly, it was not really big enough to have my cats wear, but I suspect none of my current crew would've put up with that anyway.
Gratuitous kitty photos:
FYI, because someone asked in the comments on a recent review, but Monkey is tan and white, Madison is black, and Sneaky is the calico.
Verdict: I couldn't calculate a total value for September’s meowbox because some of the items weren't yet for sale in their shop.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? It is 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 above for the ones that are available at this time. As usual, the theme was adorable, and my cats liked the items (which did a great job of fitting the theme), and the treats were also a big hit.
Value Breakdown: At $22.95 for the subscription plus free shipping, you are paying approximately $4.59 per item.
