Meow Box – January 2015

Due to some delay, I just got my January 2015 MeowBox yesterday.

Yes, it still says Basil. I sent them a request to get one for Princess Caroline so hopefully they reply soon! I wonder if they have the same person writing the names for all of them or if one person is assigned kitties from A-L then one person for M-Z.

You can see PC in the back! Haha.

So this month’s box comes with these items:
foufouBRANDS – Pet wipes Great for dogs AND cats to wipe away dirt and odor the easy way. We actually have our own kitty wipes for PC. I mean, we bathe her and day two she already smells like her stinky self so these wipes are great to keep her smelling relatively clean without putting her in a stressful situation. [Website here | Cost: $2.50]

Petmate – Looney Loops – Spring like cat toys are perfect for batting, biting, flipping, etc. according to the card but my cats just ignored them.
[Website here | Cost: $5.14]

Feelgood Treats – Liver Snapz Made in Canada liver treats! We got the bison liver cat treat and theyre a good size. Not too big! [Website here | Cost:~$2.75]

In Clover – Sleek Feline Functional Rewards Apparently these treats help with healthy skin and shiny coat. They look like this other kitty treat we have. Not sure if this actually promotes healthy skin but it doesn’t hurt. [Website here | Cost: $4.99]

Amazing Pet Products – Bouncy Blinking Ball – It’s basically a rubber ball with spikes that light up in different colours when you tap it. PC loves it. This one, unfortunately, doesn’t come with its own website so the price of the item I’m listing is based on the cheapest alternative I could find. [Cost: ~$8]

R2Pet – Grand Glo Mouse – This is basically the best item we received! Basil immediately chased after this chirping mouse with glowing red eyes and feathers for a tail. (Picture below) He even hissed at PC for it. They’ve been taking turns all morning. The drawback is that I can’t imagine replacing the battery on that thing. Oh, BP said the chirping can get annoying.

This month’s box is definitely worth it considering I pay $22.95/month for the 6-month subscription.


Meow Box

Meowbox Holiday box – December 2014

As per Mana‘s recommendation, I signed up for Meowbox when BP and I first got Basil. Basically, it’s a subscription box for your cat. A lot of sites say they’re going to customize your box and they do to a point but it’s never THAT customized. But in that regard, you might as well just buy your own treats and toys for your cat yourself.

Here’s Basil’s Meowbox. As you can see, they personalize it with your cat’s name.

But wait… this isn’t Basil. PC, that’s not your box!

First we have Petsport’s Mouse Balls (Link here) for $6.43

Then we have Renee’s Garden Seeds (Link here) for $2.79

Wagger’s Tender Moist Cat food (Link here)

Wodema Nibletz (Link here)




Sorry but I lost the information card for the last three items.

But I’ll have you know that my cats love the items.
Here’s PC rolling around with that Vermont’s Homegrown catnip toy.

Basil giving PC a pitying look. Like… ugh, children.

I think if you have a cat, you should definitely try Meowbox and BarkBox if you have a dog. If you want to try it, of course, you probably just want to pay for the one month but you’ll find that $32 is not worth it! I say, try it for six months. The $22 spent toward your box is better than you going to PetSmart, PetValue or whatever hipster pet store you go to and randomly buying treats and toys. I guarantee, you’ll rack up a lot of clutter at home that way and end up paying for it.
