PetFlow.com was awesome enough to send me one of their January boxes from their Spoiled Rotten subscription program. For $24.99 per month, they send you a cute box stuffed with cat products (or dog, if you're a dog person!) that can include food, treats, toys, and accessories. (Shipping is included in the price). In general, the boxes contain around $40 worth or products, so it's a pretty sweet deal! There's currently a discount code on the site (code SRB9) that lets you take $5 off your first month- even better!
And now, on with our review!
Here's how the box arrived in the mail. I think the label is cute!
Inside, there's a card that lists the products inside. How cute is the paw print tissue paper?
Sorry this isn't a great pic of the contents, but we'll be breaking everything down in a second and there will be better pics there!
First up, we have these Supercat Catnip Caves:
I love that they come in a 4-pack- It makes me feel like it's no big deal if the cats totally destroy one, since there are more waiting in the box. Right now I have one upstairs and one downstairs, and the cats have revisited them a few times already!
Next, we got the Cat Dancer Original:
This is a surprisingly simple toy- a bunch of catnip infused cardboard pieces attached to a springy steel wire. When they bat it, it bounces all over the place. My cats have had a blast with this! (See the video for a demo!) I discovered that I can stick one end under a chair cushion and just leave it there, and they're happy to play on their own! Super handy when they need some exercise, but I'm in a lazy mood. This one sells for $2.99.
We also got 2 cans of Wellness cat food: one minced turkey, one diced chicken. My cats adored these! These retail for $1.79/can.
The Lickety Stik was the big hit from this box! This is a lickable cat treat, and totally different from any other treats I've seen. If you imagine a guinea pig licking their water bottle, it's the same theory- the cat licks, the little roller ball spins, and yummyness happens! These are normally $2.99 each- I'd totally buy another one! We got the chicken flavor, but it also comes in turkey, salmon, beef, dairy and tuna.
Tropiclean Clean Teeth Gel is the only item from the box that wasn't a big hit. It's a minty gel that you rub on your cat's teeth to eliminate tartar and plaque. I tried it out on two of my cats, but they each only tolerated me rubbing their teeth for about two or three seconds each, so I'm not sure how much good it did. This one retails for $9.99
This tin of PetGuard Leaf and Flower Organically Grown Catnip has been a lot of fun so far! The tin is incredibly cute, and I love that the catnip is organic, so you don't have to worry about pesticides. The lid is a little tough to get off, but that's the only problem I've found. (And it prevents incidents like we had last month where the cats found the catnip bag and covered the kitchen in it!) Retail price is $10.99.
Overall, I loved the box! It was so much fun to check out products that I probably wouldn't have picked up otherwise. I love that you are free to sign up anytime, and if for some reason you don't like what you get, you're able to return the box for a refund. The only thing I'd love to see added is a handy page on their website that lists everything in that month's box (and maybe previous months) to make reordering easy. I had a little trouble tracking each product down on the site to get extra info for the review.
