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.
