Although my cats are normally scared of unknown people, they have taken it upon themselves to greet our mail carriers. Sometimes the packages we receive at Our Virginia Home are just for them!
We received a package from BestFriendBox this week. BestFriendBox offers a monthly subscription box for cats and dogs. Items in the boxes are hand-picked and help to introduce you and your pet to new products. Each box includes at least four items. If you would like to offer a box as a gift, you can pick from a 1, 3, or 6 month subscription.
Our oldest cat, Dubie, eagerly watched me open the package and immediately checked out his new treats and toys.
Kookamunga Krazee Kitty Catnip Bubbles
Although this product is intended for cats, I was concerned that they might make my cats sick. I used them with caution and decided I wouldn’t allow them to lick the solution off the floor. My cats watched with curiosity as they watched the bubbles drift through the air. Dubie popped a large bubble and jumped about a foot into the air. Once Meisha (our youngest cat) saw Dubie’s reaction, she ran and watched cautiously from another room. They weren’t really sure what to make of the bubbles, but they were entertained for several minutes as they floated across the kitchen. I was entertained watching their reactions, too!
Because the bubble solution is green, I recommend trying it outdoors or in the kitchen so that you can easily clean it up.
Cosmic Catnip Tuna Flakes
Both Dubie and Meisha enjoyed the tuna flakes. Although the fishy aroma wasn’t too pleasant for me, they love it and come right to the kitchen when they hear the jar opening.
You may want to consider serving the tuna flakes on top of cat food as a treat. The larger flakes are easy to feed by hand, too. For my older cat, they were slightly difficult to lick off of the floor once they got wet. The smaller flakes were sometimes missed on the carpet so I had to double check that they ate them all.
Spot Colored Burlap Mice
My cats LOVE mice and they are the perfect size for carrying around in their mouth or batting around the house.
While I was taking photos of Meisha getting brushed (see photos below), I heard Dubie running around the kitchen and banging into furniture. I turned around just in time to see him hit one of the mice into the air and then take off running. Dubie is approaching 15 years old, so it’s great to see that even an older kitty with health issues enjoyed the mice.
Grip Soft Pet Brush
This was Meisha’s favorite item from the BestFriendBox. She really loves attention and wants to be petted constantly. All you have to do is tap her on the back and she’ll flop down on the floor and roll over on her back for a belly rub. You can see from the pictures that she really enjoyed the Grip Soft Pet Brush. This should really help cut down on the extra fur around the house!
I enjoyed being able to provide this fun surprise for both of my cats and overall thought the selection of the items was good. If you’d like to learn more about the BestFriendBox, you can visit their website at www.bestfriendbox.com or follow them on Twitter and Facebook.
