A couple of weeks ago I had the incredible good fortune to win a jumbo Meowbox from Geek Girl Penpals. For those of you not familiar, Meowbox (as the name suggests) is a monthly mystery subscription box geared specifically for felines. Being a true crazy cat lady I’m been meaning to try it out for ages, so I was extra stoked to be getting one for free.
I really liked the fact that they wrote our kitties names on the box. I know, cats can’t ready, but I thought it was a nice touch and shows that Meowbox is just as crazy about cats as their customers.
The INSTANT I got that box open, Gatsby had already stuffed his face into the box to drool all over the Hauspanther Modshaker catnip toy. Although Kala is usually the more rambunctious of our kitties, she’s oddly not that into catnip toys, so Gatsby got to enjoy this one all on his own. I couldn’t even reach in to take out the other items, Gatsby was in full predator mode.
Luckily, after about an hour of kitty-trippin’ he retired to the bedroom to sleep it off so I could finally get some proper pictures of all the goodies. In addition to the afore mentioned Modshaker, the August box (which is the one we received) had a Fou-Stick in Calm, a Felted Snake toy by Snow Leopard Trust, a sample of Natural Healthy cat food by Nutrience and a Here Kitty Kitty Sampler pack by 4 Paws Pure. I really like that most of the products included are actually Canadian, as Meowbox has Canadian, US & UK options.
The favourite so far is definitely the Modshaker, while the Here Kitty Kitty treats were a little hit and miss (shrimps were gobbled right up, beef was left untouched), but I’m pretty sure that’s just our cats. I haven’t gotten a chance to try out the calm stick or the cat food, but I have a feeling the calm stick will come in handy the next time Kala decides to be extra needy at 3 in the morning.
All in all I was really happy with this box and think it would make an awesome gift for the cat lover in your life.
