KitNipBox

Date Tue, October 28 2014

Today starts a week dedicated to reviews for things my fur babies have loved — or ignored. You know how it goes with cats. LOL! The first is KitNipBox. I was excited about this when I saw the first blog reviews and even ads on Facebook. There are so many subscription boxes for dog owners. I don’t know if KitNipBox is the first for cats, but I am not complaining.

So KitNipBox is a box full of toys, treats and other goodies for your felines. I received the October/Halloween box, which came with some special seasonal goodies, too. KitNipBox arrives in its labeled box. Inside, the box was wrapped in seasonable tissue paper with a sticker. Inside that, everything was in a mesh bag. It’s a nice touch. Especially the box. Cats loooove those. ;)

It's the great KitNipBox, Charlie Brown!

My box included:

  • Wellness Kittles Crunchy Chicken Treats
  • Catnip Stuffed Fish
  • A coupon for Ribbon Parties kitty cape — which I haven’t used. My cats are not fans of collars let alone capes.

These three items are part of the start KitNipBox. The next three items are part of the Happy Cat box, which was also included in mine:

  • A handmade cat toy made from a spool
  • A Cat’n Around Kitty Wobbler Toy
  • A Cat’n Around Spider that’s refillable with catnip

I didn’t get the multi cat box this month, but it would have included salmon treats and a crocheted candy corn. Aww, how sweet. Get it? ;)

The mix of commercial items and homemade toys was awesome. It supports artists. KitNipBox also supports good causes. This month, it was the Sean Casey Animal Rescue. The money you spend at KitNipBox will help other kitties, which I love.

So what did my kitties love?

Phantom's gone fishin'

Surprisingly, Phantom took off after the stuffed fish. I was so surprised. He typically doesn’t like little plush toys. Goliath has a collection of mice, but Phantom doesn’t.

I really liked the wobbler toy. It’s a weighted ball with a feather attached. Because it’s weighted, the feather almost always stays upright, so you can kick or swat it across the floor and the feather wooshes along. My cats sometimes like thus, but not nearly as much as I expected.

Of course, the boys love the chicken treats in the KitNipBox. They’re fans of chicken, and the little bites are small enough to put in their foraging toy, too.

The catnip spool is really cute. It’s orange and yellow — perfect for Halloween — with threads sticking off the sides. It reminds me a little bit of a colorful Tootsie Roll. Sadly, my cats aren’t a big fan of it as far as I can tell. It keeps moving across the floor, however. They must be playing in secret!

Finally, the spider. It’s a fuzzy orange shape with black yarn legs. It came with a sactcher of cat nip, which I stuffed in the entire thing. You could ration is out, however. My cats went crazy over this thing! I mean, it was covered in cat spit from all the chewing in a matter of minutes. Unfortunately, the yarn legs weren’t attached very well. I spend the next 48 hours or so picking them up off my floor. I think there’s a few still attached, but I don’t expect them to last.

This was the only really issue I had with quality, and I realize that my cats won’t like every toy. It’s luck of the draw a little bit. However, I was a bit surprised at which toy it was that had quality issues. Imperial Cat is the company behind Cat’n around toys; although, the spider isn’t listed. You might keep that in mind if you’re in the market for some new cat toys.

KitNipBox subscriptions start at $9. The one I received to review is $19 monthly while the version for multiple cats costs $10 more. These boxes are definitely an affordable way to try multiple toys, and you’ll save money over purchasing all the toys and treats separately. These boxes ship for free.

You can use code REVIEWSBYCOLE to save 15% on your first KitNipBox, which makes this an even better deal!

Right now, it’s only available to U.S. residents, but I hope to see KitNipBox available to more people!

    I am SO sorry to hear about your loss, Molly. Thank you for taking the time to comment. Fortunately, my KitNipBox didn’t contain anything like that, and I don’t have any similar cat toys. It’s good of you to spread the word about this company.

    Once again, my condolences.

    I just took a moment to email the folks at KitNipBox with your comment and some thoughts of my own. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
