I love picking up new toys and treats for my precious kitty, but haven’t exactly been able to make trips to the pet store lately. Even before we all started hunkering down when I could leisurely stroll through the aisles, I would often find myself frustrated by how many more options there were for dogs versus cats. Don’t get me wrong, I love pups too, but why don’t felines get the same level of retail love?
So, when I came across the Litterbox.com subscription box catered specifically to cats, I jumped at the chance to test it out in much the same way my furbaby leaps after the little red dot of a laser pen. The company recently launched the boxes and will start shipping them out for $30 a month in May. Those who sign up will also receive a $10 voucher for items sold separately in their store. Each box will contain between six and eight products, including toys, treats, and cleaning supplies, and they will be different things each month.
Here’s all the goodies that showed up at my front door:
- Catnip Leaf + Flower
- Catnip Buds
- Cat Bath Foam Wash
- Stain + Odor Wipes
- Octopus Hemp Catnip Toy (no longer available)
- Refillable Catnip Red Karp Toy
- Swing Star Toy
- Slicker Cat Hair Brush
- 2 Laser Pointers (not listed on the website)
As you can see, my girl Agnes had to investigate the contents for herself ASAP. (She also took an instant liking to the octopus catnip toy, which is why it already looks a little dirty in this photo after I put it back inside for the snap.)
The jars of Leaf + Flower and Buds are filled with ground up catnip and un-ground dried catnip blooms, respectively. Agnes was happy I could quickly refill the bright orange fishy for her with fresh ‘nip when it ran out instead of waiting on another order.
The Stain + Odor wipes came in handy a lot quicker than I would have liked when Agnes made a mess outside of her litter box a few days after they arrived. That said, I can vouch for their effectiveness at getting rid of any smell and cleaning things up easily.
We’re still working our way through the rest of the box, but Agnes and I are both happy with how much they were able to pack inside. I did the math with each of the individual items on Litterbox.com and if I had added the same products to a cart on their own, it would have cost me at least double the amount of the $30 monthly fee.
Looking at similar products on other online pet stores gave me the same result, if not more expensive. Plus, I just really like the idea of fun surprises for Agnes getting sent to my door without breaking my bank.
If you like pampering your furbaby, I totally recommend giving the Litterbox.com subscription box a try, too! Click here to pre-order one for your favorite feline.
