The March Purrfectbox was jam packed full of items, a total of 7 to be exact!!
Starting with the toys, there’s a stuffing-free catnip filled small giraffe looking bird. This would probably be more suited to smaller cats due to it’s size, and the fact it has no stuffing is great as you don’t have to worry your furry friend is going to rip the toy apart and eat/choke on the stuffing.
We got a couple of feathery toys, which I’m sure Bella will love, and finally a treat ball which apparently has catnip contained in the material of the ball itself, which I’ve not come across before. It’s an interesting idea and could come in handy when trying to get Misty to exercise a bit more. She needs to lose some weight and although she loves her food, she tends to just walk away from other “treat balls” we’ve tried. Given her love of catnip, perhaps this one will keep her interest enough for her to chase around after it with the satisfaction of earning a little food along the way. Obviously if you are doing this you want to make sure you are deducting the amount of food your pet is getting from the ball away from the food they get at meal time.
Speaking of treats, this box included a pack of Chicken Tenders, which are literally just boiled chicken breast. I’m not sure how I feel about the fact they’ve obviously not been refrigerated (I’m a bit funny about meat, even if I’m just giving to to my cats). We also have some hairball control treats. To be honest, I don’t tend to give my girls treats as Misty definitely doesn’t need them and it seems unfair to just give them to Bella.
Along the same hairball control theme is Cat Malt, which is a natural digestive aid and can prevent the build up of hairballs. You can also use it in the event of already existing constipation, although if your pet has had it for a little while you may want to seek veterinary advice.
Finally there was a plastic container included with a picture of a dog on the front.. A very random addition considering this is supposed to be a cat box (perhaps a picture of a cat might have been more appropriate Purrfectbox..)
All in all, a good selection of products and I’m particularly interested to see how the catnip infused treat ball works out. If you’re interested in trying out Purrfectbox I have a code you can use to get £5 off your first box. Just type ukbfoy4f at checkout and you’re good to go! Subscriptions start from £15.90 a month and include £30 worth of products in each box. Much like the various other monthly subscription boxes, you fill in a short survey giving details about your pet so they can customise the box to your particular cat (they also have one for dogs!), and then it’s just a matter of being patient whilst you wait for you box to arrive in the mail!
