Review: December Meowbox

Getting back into the routine of things after the craziness of the holidays! It was an incredible Christmas filled with lots of love, family and TURKEY... So much turkey.

As much as I love this time of year I am also happy that it's now behind us and I can get back into routine, go to bed on time and look forward to 2018!

In true form of return I'm back with review Wednesday in full force! Over the month I received Princess's and Montana's Meowbox! The beautiful Christmas Meowbox.

The December Meowbox

The December Meowbox

Every other month I receive Meowbox by mail. The ultimate subscription for the cat lover. You have the option to get it monthly or every other month. I find getting it every other month is perfect otherwise you find yourself with a large abundance of cat toys. I believe we've now hit our anniversary with Meowbox, there's been a few hit and misses in certain boxes but for the most part I still really enjoy getting this and I think the girls like it too.

This box included:

Wool Holly Cat Toy

Tuna Can Cat Toy

Snowman Ball with Bell

Kitty Treats

Christmas Light Cat Toy

The nostalgia of this box was such a winner. I love love love all the designs of the toys. They are all so unique and puts me and my kitties in the Christmas spirit.

Wool Holly: We've received multiple wool toys in these boxes, sadly our cats are not overly interested in them past the first unveiling. So as much as it's a very cute toy and gives the room a little more Christmas cheer... It really lacks interest to my cats.

Tuna Cat toy from Meowbox

Tuna Can: We had a similar issue with this toy: It's super cute but the cats had very little interest in it. Luckily I have some spray cat nip from a previous box that can make any boring toy desirable.

Snowball: This one was a win. Loved by both cats! It's fuzzy with a cute bell and has an adorable face (for me)

Treats: I am very happy to say that these treats were delicious! The girls couldn't get enough of them. There's been a few packs of treats that they were not a fan of so I'm always happy when we get something they approve of. Most are locally made with good ingredients as opposed to the grocery store brands.

Lights: This is my favorite toy! There was some decent thought into this toy, there's even a little shine to the bulbs. My girl isn't a huge fan of string toys but Montana loves them so her and I had some fun.

Overall the box wasn't the greatest on the cat side of things but for cuteness it was a 10/10

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also wanted to take a little time to showcase some of my work from the month. I had tons of fun with some custom cakes for young boys birthday!

Meowbox review

 

This months theme of course is among my favorite... HALLOWEEN! Or should I say MEOWLLOWEEN. I was ecstatic when I realized my subscription would fall in October because Halloween makes me so happy!!

Want your own box? Message me and I'll send you a referral for $5 off your first box!!

The box stayed true to the theme, every toy had a Halloween feel to it.

- Eyeballs with bells in them.

- Jack-o-Lantern toy!

- Orange snake made from wool.

 

- and then lastly there was some treats that my kitty quite enjoyed.

This box gets a 10/10 in my books. It was already running with bonus points with the Halloween theme but the treats that my cat adored tipped the scale. The only critique I'd give this box is that none of the toys had catnip in them.

This was also the first box with both Princess's name and my boyfriends cat's name (Montana). In September our families joined forces, and although there's definitely been growing pains taking 2 alpha female cats and putting them in the same home, we see the progress everyday! Catnip helps this.

Personalized boxes!

 

With Halloween around the corner I wanted to share some pumpkin carvings from last year! The theme was Pokémon: unfortunately I ran out of pumpkins before I could finish my creations but the ones I did make turned out amazing!

Sadly I sacrificed my third pumpkin to a friend who joined me.. He made the death star. It looked great but I can't help but think Squirtle would have been better!

Aloha! With every meowbox you buy, they give a can of food to a shelter cat!

Price: $29.95 + taxes.

I’ve chosen to receive it every other month to avoid having too many toys in the house!

Contents:

  • Katmint: Kavai Blend Catnip
  • Tropical flower toys equipped with feathers
  • Pineapple and coconut toys
  • Catnip ice cream cone
  • Kettle Craft: Savory Canadian Turkey

At times the meowbox can be a dud in my experience, there have been months where Princess is very uninterested in what comes in, but I don’t hold it against them because something that my cat may be uninterested in may be the best thing ever to another cat! So not every delivery will be a 100% winner.

August’s theme was embracing the tropics! And this really stole my girl’s heart before I could even open the box she was trying to get into it. Her faves this month seem to be the ice cream cone catnip toy and the flower feather thingies… which I suspect will be destroyed within a matter of hours…

She wasn’t too much of a fan of the treats sadly but she is a picky eater as it is so I’m not surprised. I’m sure my boyfriend’s cat will enjoy them!

Aloha!
