So what is a non-review you ask? It’s what you get when one of your cats climbs into the box of goodies you have set out to review and won’t let you or any other cat near it. That’s exactly what Lily Olivia did with the Petbox.
We were contacted at the end of 2014 by the petbox folks and asked if we would like to review their product. Of course, we replied in the affirmative. We received one of their cat boxes for multiple pets (a $59.95 value) shortly after the first of the year. With all the goodies the gang received for Christmas, I wanted to wait a while before opening it.
Lily Olivia and Mauricio were on hand when I set out to check the petbox contents. They were competing to see who could psyche out the other with the scariest stink-eye. Lily won.
The moment the petbox was opened Mauricio headed for parts unknown as Lily Olivia started hissing, growling and whapping us. She climbed into the box atop the inner paper covering the treats and toys. (Well, I assumed treats and toys were beneath the paper!)
Each time I tried to reach under the paper to withdraw an item I was greeted by growling and smacky paws. I eventually had to cut through the paper in an attempt to remove items. I was able to wrench from beneath Lily two mouse-shaped, 100% compressed Catnip Candy from Spot.
I dropped one of the mice back in the box hoping to distract my cat turned wild tiger. It didn’t, but I eventually was able to extract all the items from beneath her without extreme injury to myself.
She, Giulietta and Mauricio were able to taste test the all natural/grain free/chicken flavored Smart n’ Tasty Dental Treats. They gobbled them up immediately.
Lily Olivia’s behavior signaled to me that the items in the petbox met with her approval, and she intended to keep them all for herself along with the box. But that doesn’t really make a proper review. So I will post a full-review of the items in the petbox on Monday.
Until then, Lily Olivia is protecting the box and its contents by parking her butt in the box and daring any cat or human to remove her, the noms, treats or toys.
This is your early reminder that we will be hosting our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop this weekend. Time to wake up from your long winter naps and snap a photo or two to share with us. All critters are welcome. The more entries, the more fun. So please consider joining us and asking your friends to do the same.
I know that face in the last picture well!! Don’t mess with L.O.!!
Oh Lily, you are my kind’a girl! No need to share, nope, not one tiny little bit
Lily Olivia…I for one love your stink eye…you get the message across instantly. You are also a wee lass of a lady cat that has no trouble making up your mind…you know what you want and are not afraid to take it. Good going my friend.
Wow, that is funny! You go girl!
Aaaaaw How cute. Altho’ we wunnew just what made hers wanna giv da whacky paw to da hooman. Not so sure mommy wulda let us hav whatever it wuz. MOL
Dezi and Lexi
She sure staked her clain on that prize! Minko would be doing thayt here, though maybe not with growling…Pipo is our hissy/growler kitty…but nip gets less attention from him than from Minko…though he does turn into a space cadet, MOL!
Looks like a lot of great stuff and a box too 🙂
well I have to say I think you are mighty ambitious to think you can get that review done by Monday.. I don’t think she is ever going to give it up.
Lily Olivia! We didn’t realize you were such a tiger! And you facial expression on that first photo is priceless! 🙂
the critters in the cottage xo
Well… it’s a box. ‘Nough said.
Looks like an excellent review to me! 😀
Lily Olivia gave the best review!
Lola and Lexy
MOL it’s yours, all yours, Lily Olivia ! Purrs
It looks like the box passed strict inspections 🙂
Our Einstein used to corner any special goodie but has toned it down a cat-hair as he is now over a year old. Well most times anymeow. We got one of those in the past and really enjoyed it so looking furward to the full review. We will try and get Dad out of bed on Sunday to post our selfies.
ROFWL>>>Oh Lily Olivia you are such a silly but clever girl….so so funny!!
I think this is a Lily O-Pet Box…
Well done sweet girl 🙂
Love Sherri-Ellen & Siddhartha Henry x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0
Your kitties responded just like mine did to receiving the PetBox! They sure don’t make it easy to get pictures of the items MOL Lily Olivia is really cute in those photos!
ahhh the power of the catnip fragrance …
Well now, that sure was fun! We love the empty box and still have ours from last year!
OH my I am killing myself laughing over this ..imena really ’nuff said about the products hahahaaah 🙂 bless her heart 🙂 loves Fozziemum xx
Looks like Lily Olivia has decided the box and contents are hers and no-one had better think otherwise.
The PetBox is a great way to try new items! And the box is just an added benefit! But it sure looks like Lily Olivia isn’t letting that box go any time soon. 🙂
Oh that is just so hilarious……she certainly has a grand stink-eye trained on YOU with the camera and on her siblings when they approach “THE BOX”…….sooner or later she’ll have to visit the litter box and you can move in for the “box clear out” – she’ll probably still want the box though!
This sounds like something Binga might do! Except my human would have grabbed Binga and locked her away while me and Boodie got to check out the contents. Bad behavior around here gets a kitty nowhere. 😉
LOL well it is all yours. Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly
MOL Lily Olivia!
