KitNipBox January 2021 Review

KitNipBox has monthly themes. Around holidays, there are holiday themes, but you can never predict what it’ll be at other times. This month had a farm theme.


On to the items:

Flutter By Butterfly Wand Cat Toy – Listed Value $7

There’s a wand in this box fairly often, and they do a good job of varying the style of toy dangling from the wand. This one has a felt butterfly. I thought this would interest Sneaky the most but it turns out, Madison was more interested this month. He stalked it quite a lot although I never got a good photo of a pounce. This one seemed well-made and had a good stick-to-string length ratio.

Safemade Spring Pig Cat Toy – Listed Value $6

I only have so many hands so I couldn’t show this in action very well while also taking a photo, but the pig’s body is a fabric-covered spring (by weight, it’s probably plastic, not metal, inside) so you can stretch it out and kind of let it fly across the room, which Monkey found quite interesting.

Paws ‘n Purrs All Catnip Cardinal Cat Toy – Listed Value $5

This is a catnip plush with no stuffing (only catnip). It is small-to-medium in size and seems to be stitched fairly securely. This one was well-liked by my boys (Madison and Monkey) for cuddling.

Playful Pet Silo Kicker Cat Toy – Listed Value $5

Monkey is usually my wrestler/kicker cat but I rubbed the treats all over this (see below) and Sneaky became absolutely fascinated with it. She still licks it sometimes. (If you have a really food-responsive cat that is a fun thing to do sometimes.) But I expect once the fishy smell wears off that this will be more of a Monkey thing.

‘R Squad Rock ‘n Rattle Cabbage Cat Toy - Listed Value $5

This is a small rattle ball covered in fabric to look like a cabbage. This one is more for batting around, so I expect Monkey will be the biggest fan (though he only wanted to rub his head on it during the photo session). If it sounds like Monkey is the biggest fan of a lot of these toys, it’s because he is – he is a 14-year-old, old man, but he has the personality of a much younger cat.

Mad Cat Fish Taco Cat Toy – Retail Value $2.25

This is another one that Madison liked; he’s my Mad Cat fan. This has catnip as well as silvervine and Madison is a real silvervine responder. It’s a bit unusual to get a toy in this box that you can also purchase retail, but I’m never going to complain about Mad Cat toys! They’re adorable and cleverly-designed and my cats like them.

Purebites Freeze Dried Ocean Tuna Cat Treats (0.3 oz) – Buy 0.88 oz for $5.44 (found here for $4.96)

The treats this month are freeze-dried tuna. Normally Sneaky is my freeze-dried meat cat, but Monkey actually liked these more this month. Although Sneaky was sure interested in the silo toy with tuna dust rubbed all over it. Well, I guess that just means there are two different ways for these to be enjoyed. In general, I find this to be a good brand and have bought items from them on my own in the past.


Simply Kind Hearted Squeezaables Hairball Control Cat Treat (sample) – Buy 3.53 oz for $13.99

This was a free sample so I haven’t included it in any overall value calculations. I was not expecting the texture/consistency of this when I opened it. Most squeezable or lickable treats are pretty runny but this actually was quite viscous and held its shape above the foil tube. It reminded me a lot of Cat Lax, although Madison and Monkey sure liked it more than Cat Lax, so I guess it has added flavor. If your cat gets hairballs a lot and other hairball remedies don’t work or are difficult to administer, this may be worth a look.

On to the kitties:


(Sneaky is calico, Monkey is tan and white, and Madison is black.)

Verdict: I wasn’t able to calculate a total value for this month’s KitNipBox, but I would say it was a fairly typical month and that my cats enjoyed it. I always like the themes and how the folks at KitNipBox manage to find items having different sizes and textures to fit the themes – the variety in toy types is a selling point for this box, especially if you have multiple cats with different preferences. I discovered a new brand this month (the squeezable treats), as well!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Your first KitNipBox will ship right after your payment processes, so you should still be able to get January's box if you sign up now.

Value Breakdown: This box costs $29.99 including free shipping, so you are paying approximately $4.28 per item (not counting the free sample).
