Meowbox May 2016 Cat Subscription Review

May 2016 Meowbox Subscription Box

I’m sure you can guess by now that I’m a cat lady, and you can figure out that I’m a crazy cat lady by the fact that I justified paying for this subscription for Ion’s first birthday. Yep, buying cats birthday gifts. I love them so much!

Meowbox

Meowbox always donates a can of food to a shelter for every box that is sold. This month they donated the dollar amount to the Edmonton Humane Society to help with the Fort McMurray wildfire relief. So many families and pets were displaced in the fires so I love that Meowbox is trying to help those animals out. I have family from all around Alberta and we even adopted Ion from the Edmonton SPCA. Thank you Meowbox!

May 2016 Meowbox Subscription Box

I found this in my mail box about ten minutes after my shipping notification email. I was expecting to wait until the end of the month but it showed up a day after it actually shipped!

How Cute is this box and paper!?

Meowbox May 2016 Subscription Box

Meowbox gets points for presentation. I love the logo on the box and that they take the time to handwrite your pet’s name inside the box. The wrapping made it feel like opening a present instead of just a box! The feather intrigued Ion…

Meowbox May 2016 Subscription Box YappetizersYappetizers Goat Heart Treats $5~
Yappetizers Treat Company specializes in all natural treats made for your pet. These treats come in several different flavours and are made in Canada for both dogs and cats. Customers can’t order directly from Yappetizers unless placing bulk orders, but Yappetizers appear to be sold by small local pet stores. Ion sniffed these out right away and wanted to rip the bag apart until I locked them in a cupboard!

Meowbox May 2016 Subscription Box Wand

Foxy Tricks Cat Wand $15~
Tricks cat wand was made by an Etsy Seller. I could only find a product price on an old picture posted by a customer on the shop homepage and it was $18 CAD. Apparently the shop owner is taking a break so nothing is listed for sale at the moment. This is Ion’s fav toy in the whole box, the little wrapped bauble contains catnip AND it jingles.

Cat Caves by Catie Kicker Toy $5
This came in third place as far as my cat is concerned. Any time something has feathers he is all over that shit. This has feathers AND catnip so it’s a winner. He has started chasing it around, tossing it in the air and then pouncing and rolling with it in his mouth as it falls. It’s pretty cute! Oh and he kicks it.

Meowbox May 2016 Subscription Box Catnip

Chris Catnip Growing Kit $2.99
This is a cute little set to grow your own catnip at home. This did not grow at all for me or for most of the people who bought it on Amazon so I suggest not wasting your money on this catnip kit!

Meowbox May 2016 Subscription Box Feather Toy

Amazing Pet Products Leopard Ball $5~
I can’t find this anywhere on the Amazing Pet Products disorganized website so I’m guessing about five bucks. This and the Catnip were the most meh kind of items in the box. The feather detatches with velcro for I have no idea why, and it doesn’t appear to have any catnip or anything in it that interests Ion. It sat there untouched while he played with his other cool toys.

Final Thoughts

The total of this box is approximately $32.99 with a few cost estimations. I got what I paid for, but if I had ordered the Etsy or small local business toys I would have had to pay shipping for those items. I love the presentation, the timeliness of shipping and the variety of treats in the box. Ion now has some new things to keep him entertained and the wand is great so I can play with him too! If you want to try out Meowbox but don’t want to commit to a subscription you can do what I did and buy yourself a gift subscription which doesn’t auto renew. There are nearly always coupons floating around for this box on retailmenot, so why not?

      I think I was more excited than Ion was for the box, there are so many to choose from!

      Yeah, he gets bored easily so it’s great to have so many new things that interest him! 🙂
