The items in the box:

This months theme: Fabulous Flamingos 


1.) Imperial Cat Cat 'n around Teaser wand Cat Tail:According to Luke and Kaci this is hands down the best item in the box. They love when I have them chase this toy back and forth. Due to claws and overall use some of the feathers have come off. I could not find this product online which is unfortunate since I will be in big trouble if the cats want a new one and I can not get it for them! $5.99 (based on similar items)


2.) Our Pets FlamingoThis Flamingo toy makes a squawking noise and it sounds pretty real to me. My cats love the noise and love to chase this back and forth. It it pretty sensitive which is nice because it makes a noise even with the slightest touch of a paw which makes it more real like!  $6.99


3.) Small "Flamingo Egg" Balls: These are small with no scent (when you order there is an option for a catnip scent). I get nervous giving my cats such small balls like these ones. This is me being overprotective. However, these size balls I put into their cardboard box grass toy and they can stick their paws through and bat them! $2.50 set of three ($5 for a six pack)


4.) Imperial Cat Flamingo Catnip Kicker: This is a catnip filled toy. My cats love rubbing their face on it! I could not find this particular product online.  $9.99 (based on similar items)



5.) Caru Salmon Baked Bites: My cats found these to be quite delicious and easy to chew! They are made in USA with high quality ingredients! $7.44





Total Value: $32.91 This box was a huge hit with the cats. They enjoyed the treats and found a few new favorite toys! The value of the box is an estimate as some items were hard to find online. As always PetBox did a great job at curating the box, finding high quality items, and sticking closely to the theme.

Here are some cat photos:

Review: Maple Holistics Silk 18 Shampoo



I recently was sent this Silk 18 Shampoo from Maple Holistics. 


I was already familiar with the Silk 18 Conditioner since I have tried it in the past (see that review here) so given my great experience with that product I was excited to see how the Silk 18 Shampoo performed. 

The shampoo smelled just as amazing as the conditioner does: like vanilla cake! I was pleased at how well it lathered and made my hair feel smooth and clean. After 3 weeks of using this shampoo I have already started to see my hair has more moisture and less split ends. If you also have damaged hair make sure to read this article for possible causes and how to make your hair healthier. 

These shampoo and conditioner products got their name because they includes 18 Silk Amino Acids. The shampoo claims to strengthen hair to protect from dryness, split ends, damage, and hair fall. These products can be used by both men and women.

I love Maple Holistics products and what they stand for. All of their products are made in the USA and they strongly promote cruelty free advocacy. None of their products will ever contain ingredients that are tested on animals. All of their products are free of sulfate and other harmful ingredients. 

Maple Holistics often has giveaways on their social media accounts so make sure to follow them and enter for a chance to win! They are on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter as @mapleholistics.

Right now this Silk 18 Shampoo is on sale on the Maple Holistics website for $12.95 for the 10oz or you can purchase it on Amazon as well. There are also 8oz and 16oz bottle options available. 







This product was sent to me from Maple Holistics for review purposes. All opinions are my own. I did not receive any compensation for this post.

The items in the box:

This months theme: Chewrassic World


1.) Our Pets Prehistoric Pals Plush Dinosaur:My cats think this toy is the greatest thing ever. When touched or thrown this toy makes a squeaky mouse sound. What I love about this toy is it is pretty sensitive to touch. So unlike other toys my cats can play with this on their own and get the sound going on their own. $6.99





2.) Dino Scratcher: They have been sending out a lot of these large scratchers lately. My cats love these and due to their large size Vince often sits on them as well. These get beat up quickly with my cats. It is nice that you can flip these over to use the other side and it is like brand new to them.  $9.99







3.) Brachiosauruis Bites | Beef Lung Treats: These were made exclusively for PetBox. It would be much easier if these were smaller. My cats do not like large treats so I have to try and break them apart.  $4.99 



4.) Imperial Cat Prehistoric Pillow: This pillow toy is filled with catnip. My cats love to drool on this, rub their head against it, and then kick it away.  $5.99



5.) Nip Stix: We have received these before in a different flavor. My cats enjoy licking these and batting them around but boy are they stinky. Also they get lost very easily, though that is the fault of my cats. $12.48

6.) Dinosaur Tail Felt Toy: PetBox features toys from this etsy shop a lot. These toys always seem to be well made and adored by my cats. They must use some high quality cat nip! $6.00



Total Value: $46.44 My cats were impressed with all of the items in the box minus the beef lung treats. They will eat them if I broke them up but they were not obsessed with them. The scratcher and the plush dinosaur seem to be the most used items from this box. The box had an amazing value for the cost. Some of the prices are estimates as some are exclusive items or hard to find online.

The items in the box:

This months theme: Snow Day


1.) Imperial Cat Lil Penguin:This is a cat nip stuffed penguin. My cats love to lick it. I could not find this particular item online so price is an estimate based on similar toys. $4.99











2.) The Empurrium Winter Tree Teaser: This is a wand toy the little christmas tree is filled with cat nip. My cats enjoy playing with this toy with me. I do not see this particular toy listed on their website so pricing is an estimate.  $5.50


3.) The Empurrium Snowflake Kicker: They no longer have this pattern kicker but have other designs. This is a huge hit and may be all of my cats favorite item in the box. They love it as a kicker and also enjoy grabbing at the ribbon.  $6.50



4.) Penguin Scratcher: As you can see in our unboxing video, Vince was scratching at this before it was even out of the box!! I am not sure what brand this is so once again pricing is an estimate.  $9.99 




5.) Fruitables Wildly Natural Tuna Treats: According to my cats these are delicious! They are made in the USA with only 13 ingredients by a veterinarian owned company. $2.99



Total Value: $29.97 A few of the items I could not find online so the total is a rough estimate. We did get a lot of value out of the whole box though as my cats have used every single item in it.

The items in the box:

This months theme: The Fancy Feast


1.) Steel Dog Lobster Toy:This toy has an opening to fill with catnip. I like these type of toys for when the cats are no longer interested I can fill it with fresh catnip and they become interested in it again. $5.99




2.) Ellie Baba Designs Onion TeaserThis toy is from an etsy shop. PetGiftBox sends a lot of items from this brand. All of the toys we have received from this brand are high quality and my cats have been obsessed with. They love playing with this onion teaser toy which is filled with catnip.  $6.00







3.) Our Pets 24 Karat: Though all of my cats love this toy this is one that Kaci is obsessed with licking. It might be her favorite item in the whole box. It is filled with catnip hence the licking obsession. It also has feathers which are quite amusing to her.  $3.29




4.) Apollo Peak Catbernet Wine: This wine (for cats) is made of filtered water, Valerian root extract (catnip) and beet red color. It really depends on my cats moods whether they want this or not. Luckily it has a 24-36 month shelf life so you can put it out every once and a while and not have to use the whole bottle immediately.  $9.95 


5.) Wild Pacific Snack 21 Salmon Snacks: My cats really like these treats. They are 100% natural and are made of only one ingredient: Wild Pacific Salmon with no additives or preservatives. $6.99



Total Value: $32.22 We enjoyed all of the items in the box. It was nice to see 2 food type of items (treats and cat wine) and the rest were toys that the cats loved. The theme was very fitting for Thanksgiving as well. PetGiftBox always does a great job with curating to the theme.

The items in the box:

This months theme: Ahhh Real Monsters!



1.) Monster Catnip Pillow:The cats loved to rest and rub their head against this catnip pillow and also love to kick it. $6.00 (Estimated Price)


2.) Imperial Cat Monster Kicker: My cats love chasing this toy around. It is such a cute monster toy, well made, small pieces have not come off even with hours of cats kicking, chewing, and scratching at it.  $8.00 (Estimated Price)







3.) Monster Scratcher: This scratcher is a huge hit around here. It is big enough for my cats to sit and stand on. They love to lay on it and relax. They also love to stand on it and scratch away. The size is purrfect as it is pretty large.  $10.00 (Estimated Price)




4.) Monster Munch: This is made of 100% beef lung. The pieces are pretty big you need to break them apart which was a little hard to do. Vince likes these types of meat snacks but my other cats do not. $9.00 (Estimated Price)


5.) The Empurrium Fuzzy Monster Wand Toy: My cats love this wand toy made of yarn. It is a perfect toy for bonding with your cats. This is a hand made wand toy. $10.00 (Estimated Price)


Total Value: $43.00 My cats were obsessed with all items in this box (minus the treats). The new cat scratcher has already been pretty well loved. All three of the toys in the box are loved by all 3 cats. Vince is the only one who cared for the treats. All of the prices are estimates. I could not find the products online and some of the products did not have brands listed on them. The items still equaled to a really great value based on other products of their type. PetGiftBox has never disappointed us with a box in the 3+ years we have been receiving boxes. Some boxes are more loved by my cats than others but the quality and themes have always been great.

The items in the box:

This months theme: Magical Unicorn


1.) Imperial Cat Unicorn Toy:One of the favorite items by all 3 of my cats in the box. This Unicorn shaped toy is stuffed with catnip and smells absolutely glorious according to my cats. $6.95











2.) From The Field Stella the Cork CometThis toy comes with a bag of catnip. It has strings so of course it is wanted by my cats but it is definitely a supervision only toy!  $7.83



3.) Cat N Around Glitter Wand: All 3 of my cats love this wand toy and it is a great bonding toy for me to play with them with. The pieces shred pretty easily and is not looking very pretty anymore but it does not cost much should it need replacing.  $3.50








4.) SassyCat Freeze Dried Turkey Treats: We have received these treats before. For healthier treats my cats seem to enjoy them. $3.89



5.) Unicorn Frappuccino Catnip Toy: This is very cute and well made but it is really small. Due to it's size this is something I will not give to my cats for safety purposes. $4.00


Total Value: $26.17 Another great box from PetGiftBox. We will use most of the items in the box and my cats have two favorite new toys! We love when they include tasty treats as well. We go through a lot of treats around here! The Unicorn theme was super cute and the curation was great.
