Woah. House buying stress is so real – and we haven’t even been doing housey things for very long. I guess we’ve been busy with lots of other things too, but I had “write kitnip review” written in my planner for 2 Fridays ago, and here we are, on the second to last day of the month. Ah, life. We’ve also been out of paper towels for a week if that gives you any idea of where our minds are at (or aren’t at, really.) So anyway.
After my somewhat “meh” review of January’s KitNip box, the company reached out to me to see if Barb and I would like to give their box another go…and after very little consideration at all (lets be real, Barb is spoiled; the more toys, the better) – I said yes 🙂
After her initial nosing around in the ‘Royalty’ themed box, Barb didn’t really have much interest in any of the toys – such a stinker. BUT. Here we are 3 weeks later, and she LOVES those little rattle-y balls. Loves them. Especially at 2am (because when else would one want to play with toys?! Hah.) The little bee toy gets batted around too…sometimes. Much to my dismay, she wants nothing to do with the ‘Keep Calm and Purr On’ pouch. I think it’s hilarious – come on, Barb! I actually think it’s just a bit too big for her to really know what to do with it. Unfortunately she doesn’t particularly like the pumpkin hairball aid treats/supplements either, but I think we’ve learned that she just doesn’t like ‘moist’ things. *Shrug* – cats will be cats.
The adorable slippers, handmade emerald ring toy, and handmade crown have pretty much been left untouched, but for all we know she’ll decide they’re the best things on earth in a few months. I would really like her to chew on the slippers though; they’re made of a loofah material and are supposed to help keep teeth clean. Oh well.
I think having multiple cats would make this box a better buy…using Barb as an example: not every cat will like every toy, and when you’re spoiling your kitty with their own subscription box, you don’t want any toys to be ignored, or treats to go to waste!
Based on what I could find online plus reviews from other bloggers, it looks like this month’s box had an approximate value of $30, which is above the $19.99 purchase price. If you have more than one cat OR have room in your budget for cat-related items OR like giving your kitty toys of the handmade/natural variety, I think this subscription box is definitely the one for you; it seems like KitNip supports smaller companies – many of the toys/brands can be found on Etsy 🙂
Thanks again, KitNip!
