Meet Tigger. I posted this lazy day picture of my cat Tigger and much to my surprise ended up with the opportunity to review a monthly subscription box to Purr Packs. My excitement was through the roof!
I was shocked at how quickly the box arrived at my house. From the time that I was presented with the opportunity to do the review to the time when the box was delivered to my house is was less than 1 week. I was already impressed, not to mention the box was addressed to Tigger…..Come on how cute is that?!?!
Since I run a licensed daycare in my home I didn’t have time to open the box right away but Tigger….He had other plans….
I had to give into his desperate attempts to open the box and I only had to cut the packaging tape from the sides for him to be able to open the side inserts of the box. He was ready to reveal his treasures.
The packaging was bright pink for the month of February. I have never seen a monthly subscription box packed like this before and I’ve reviewed and had many delivered to my home. This was extraordinary. The box was packed perfectly and it was very eye appealing. The treasures were all throughout the entire box (not to mention the daycare kids had a blast with the shredded pink paper).
Inside the box was a nifty card that stated everything that was included in the box as a type of inventory sheet. Included in the box was: Yeowww! Brand Hearrrt Attacks (the red heart toy that was filled with organic catnip), Purr-Packs Double-Sided Brush, Petstages Nighttime Cuddle Toy (the greyish ball that glows in the dark encouraging night time play. This toy was very SOFT!), Cosmic Catnip Kitty Family Grass Kit, Snap Cat Fish Toy, Purr-Packs Phone Stand, Feline Greenies (savory salmon flavor), and Blue Buffalo Wilderness treats (chicken and salmon recipe).
Although I’ve reviewed monthly subscription boxes before I was pleasantly surprised with Purr Packs. When I was able to evaluate all that the box included, everything was full sized! Most subscription boxes, or at least the ones I’ve had the pleasure of taking part in, provided quick little samples to use. Purr Packs included everything full sized.
Quickly after I had opened the box, I realized why Tigger had taken such an interest in this box…..besides it being a box (what cat doesn’t love a good box?). It had a smell that he has never experienced before….Catnip. As I am a relatively new cat owner (he’s my very first cat) I have never had experience with catnip. I quickly looked it up to make sure he could play with it and I didn’t have to take it from him after a period of time. I have never seen him act the way he did when he got a hold of that Yeowww! Brand Hearrrt Attack toy. By far his favorite out of the entire box. He literally held it in his paws and cuddled with it, rolling all over it, and not letting it out of his sight. Once the box was emptied from the other treasures he slept with it inside the box. Later on we were able to review the other treasures, but I had to let him love on his new found friend.
After a day I was able to continue on with the review. He then expressed interest in the treats. Since I recently took him to the vet and they were explaining what to do to help him take care of his teeth I was very excited to see the Greenies treats in the box. He had his nose pressed against my hand the entire time I was opening the bag for him to try. He LOVED the treats and was actually pretty bummed that I wouldn’t let him consume the entire package
A few treats later, we tried the Blue Buffalo Wilderness treats. He went equally as nuts as he did with the Greenies treats.
I was unsuccessful at getting pictures of him with the Snap Cat Fish Toy as he was jumping and pouncing all over the place and all the pictured ended up being a blurred mess. This toy had to be the kids favorite toy to play with him. When you squeezed the plush fish part of the toy it sent the feather at the end of it into a tail spin. Tigger went wild swatting, biting, and grabbing at the toy.
Overall this entire box was absolutely incredible! I was very blessed to be able to review it for Purr Packs. I would recommend this monthly subscription box to anyone who has a feisty feline as I do, or even a more mellow one. At Purr Packs, you are able to customize your monthly box or even send one as a gift.
