Have you heard of a subscription cat box before? It is not quite like Stitch Fix for cats. Cats do definitely not like clothing (we will not talk about the time my husband tried to dress Nemo up for Halloween). Nor is it like Blue Apron because really once one of my cats likes a food she REALLY likes it. A subscription box is a curated box of goodies just for your cats! It comes monthly and adds a little excitement to their lives and ease to yours.
Why A Subscription Box?
One of my favorite things to do is buy my cats new toys. They are so excited! My “overgrown kittens” Eclair and Baklava love pretty much anything but my fourteen year old Nemo is a little more discerning in taste. The idea of a subscription box was appealing to me because I do not always go to the store to pick up cat food and litter. I actually never go to the store and just have our cat basics on Chewy autoship so it just shows up. This avoided a lot of frantic cat food trips but it also means I do not browse the pet store anymore. As much fun as it would be I am unlikely to make a trip to the pet store just to pick up toys and treat.
A subscription cat box also brings us toys that I would not pick out myself. I tend to get the cats toys that are similar to cat toys that they already have. Does your cat have a favorite brand of cat nip? Because Nemo definitely does. I do not have time to research all the newest trends in toys nor do I want to “test drive” a new product. The cat subscription box companies check out all the toys beforehand and find things that appeal to cats. Sometimes I am a little doubtful that my cats will like something but the cat subscription box testers are usually right and they end up loving it! There is nothing wrong with a new type of toy as long as someone, or some cat, pretested that it is safe and fun.
My (Cats’) Favorite Box
There are several subscription cat boxes out there but my favorite is definitely the KitNipBox. They offer a diverse array of cat treats, toys and other products. You can check out the offerings in a recent box here. The products are well researched and less than 1% of the products that KitNipBox tests make it in to the box.
There are two KitNipBox options. A single cat box and a multi-cat box. The multi-cat box is definitely a better deal. At $29.95 it is jammed packed with enough fun for my three cats, two of which who are still VERY active. The single cat option is great too and has a lower price pint of $19.95 a month. Both boxes offer free shipping. If you are giving a KitNipBox as a gift you will also receive a discount on boxes when you buy multiple months at a time.
Another reason that I love this subscription cat box over others is that they offer a no treat/food option. When we had two older cats they were on prescription food and could not have anything extra. The company also donates a portion of their sales to animal welfare organizations making them a responsible choice!
I hope you and our cats love your KitNipBox as much as Nemo, Baklava, and Eclair do. Be sure to also check out our new cat tree and cat bed roundups to get your furry friend a place to snuggle up when they are tuckered out after a romp with their new toys.
