*The January meowbox was sent to me for free for review. I am not being compensated for this post. All thoughts, opinions and bad jokes are my own.*
Having a cat in an apartment the size of closet is not easy. There is not much room to romp around, and very limited elevated surfaces she can climb up on and push things off. I’ve been looking for ways to keep her entertained without spending a bunch of money every month. Enter: meowbox.
meowbox: Subscription Box for Cats
meowbox is a subscription box for cats that provides a box of goodies each month for your furry baby. Each box comes with 5-7 hand-picked items, including toys and treats. For picky cats, you can opt out of the treats and just get the toys!
The products are a mix of small-business and well-loved brands, which I think is awesome. What is even more reassuring is that all products are made in the US or Canada, which is nice to know with all the scary things that have been happening with animal treats made in foreign countries.
What caught my eye and drew me to meowbox was their One Box Can program. Every box purchased provides a can of cat food to a shelter cat. You can even track the food each month to see where your contribution went. So not only are you getting quality cat toys, but you can feel good about providing for a cat in a shelter at the same time.
Now, for the real test: Is meowbox Gracie approved?
We received 5 times in our January meowbox: 1 container of TruFood Living Nutrition CocoChia Bakes treats, and 4 toys.
Unfortunately Gracie was not amused by the treats. She tends to be a picky eater (like her mama), and unless it is dairy-based, she doesn’t really go for it. Sure, she’ll lick ranch dressing off the plate, but when it comes to superfood treats, she can’t be bothered.
The toys, however, were a smash. She bounced back and forth between all four of them for a full two days without stopping– which is basically a record for her. She has a hard time keeping interest in toys.
All 4 toys had catnip in them, which was great because it kept her occupied. It’s been almost a week and she is still happily making rotations with these toys, and has completely forgotten about her old toys. The giant purple crinkly guy is a big hit, and as is the green soft toy with bells on it. My life has been set to a soundtrack of the crinkle toy and the bell toy since we opened the box if that tells you anything.
My favorite part, however, was the box.
Cats love boxes, that’s a given. I’m not sure if meowbox actually soaks these in catnip, or if it’s just from housing all the catnip toys, but Gracie had some very intimate time with this box. About 45 minutes of rolling around on it for her was great, but the extra bonus was the entertainment value for me. I think I sent a Snapchat to every single person I’ve ever met of her playing with that box. Totally worth it.
(Again, sorry about the pictures. A moving cat and 10pm lighting doesn’t make for the best photography conditions.)
I mean, that looks like a satisfied customer to me.
So, now that you’re in love with meowbox like I am, let’s talk pricing.
meowbox has a few different plans, and they ship mid-month:
- $32.95 for 1 month
- $27.95 for 3 months ($83.85 upfront)
- $22.95 for 6 months ($137.70 upfront)
BUUUUTTT because meowbox is awesome, you can use the code CANDIDLYKELSEY10 for 10% off your first meowbox subscription!
I couldn’t be happier with my first meowbox, and I have been recommending it to other friends who have cats as well. My cat can be super picky about what she likes, so this was was a huge victory for me.
