As all subscription box lovers know, one day you will forget to skip a month. This is my third Meowbox review since becoming a subscriber! I meant to skip my renewal and get a box for May because both my of kitties have their birthday next month (Yes, I buy them birthday gifts. They may not know it’s their birthday, but I do!) but it seems they have got their surprise early! Meowbox is a box containing 4+ goodies & treats for your cats!
Price: $29.99 CAD ($22.95US)/box
Frequency: Monthly or bimonthly
What’s Included: 4+ goodies & treats for your cats. You can opt to replace treats with toys if your furry companion is on a strict diet.
Meowbox changed their box design somewhere between January and April. Below is the old box vs new box design. I really liked the look of the old boxes! Now it’s just a generic cardboard box with a paper logo sticker. I know it doesn’t change what’s inside the box, but a part of me loves pretty packaging and the experience of opening a well designed box…
As always, Meowbox has handwritten my cat’s names on the inside of the box. I think if they stopped doing this I would unsubscribe, I love the personal touch. It really has a made with love kind of feel.
My Cat Is People ~ But Furrst Coffee Pin $15.49 CAD
This is the first time I’ve seen cat accessories for hoomans in a Meowbox! It’s so cute! I recently visited the new cat cafe that opened up in my city, so the timing was perfect! I’ve already clipped this onto the strap of my everyday purrrse (see what I did there?). I’m normally not a girl who’s into patches and pins but I made an exception for this ‘lil gem.
Cat it Eco ~ Terra Toys $4.07 CAD
My guys played with these a little bit. Q even tossed it around in the air a couple times before attempting to chow down on it (he does that, the vets have no idea why but he eats everything with fabric or string).
Furry & Fancy ~ Bells & Bows Organic Catnip Toys $8.07 CAD
Ion was kind of meh on this one, and Q just wanted to eat it. I might be able to coax Ion into playing with it.
Hoptuits Cricket Crunchies $6 CAD
When I first saw these I was like EWW GROSS! But I mean, animals eat crickets all the time I’m sure. I actually thought that there were dead crickets inside the pouch and I was too scared to open the packet so I made my husband do it. Turns out it’s just little square treats which, according to the website, are “infused with cricket powder”. I don’t think I’ll be feeding my guys these treats though, I prefer food that I know is veterinarian approved. I will need to remember to change my profile to receive toys instead of snacks in the future.
Le Sharma Trading Inc Wool Flower ~ $8
This is a Meowbox exclusive so I estimated the value based on Le Sharma’s other toys. This wool flower was a hit with both cats. I would toss it and Q would run after it, grab it, and then charge around like a mad cat. He really likes wool toys and he doesn’t seem interested in eating them surprisingly. Ion would also chase after this, but Q & I are very careful not to stomp all over the other when playing so they would be like, “No you go get it! No brother, you get it!”
The box was worth $41.63 CAD in value this month. That is over the cost of the box, and therefore worth it. I was rather surprised to get the pin in the box, and would have preferred more toys instead for my guys because they were kind of unexcited by this box. But with cats you never really know what toys they will love.
With Ion, we found this orange mouse toy and he loooooved it. He would take it everywhere with him and flip it up in the air and charge after it. When it started to ware out we bought him the exact same orange mouse, and he just looked at it and was like, guys, guys, guys. This isn’t my mouse. Cats are fickle.
Thanks for reading! I’ll leave you with a picture of Ion guarding his new toys. I hope you enjoyed this post and getting to see more of my furry companions! For more of Q& I you can find them making appearances on my Instagram! I’ll be back with my regular beauty posts tomorrow <3
