Note: The box and its contents were provided us free of charge for an honest review. The opinions herein are the kittens’ as interpreted by me.
We were offered a free KitNipBox in exchange for a review, and I nearly broke my fingers accepting the offer. There is nothing I love more than new cat toys, unless it’s SURPRISE cat toys, so the KitNipBox is right up my alley.
The box arrived, and I wasted no time taking it upstairs to see what the kittens thought. But here, first a shot of what a KitNipBox looks like. The outside:
Inside the box is a card with a cute picture on one side and a list of what’s in the box on the other.
The only kittens who could be bothered to be involved in this review were Torvill, Oksana, and Brian Boitano, who were ALL about checking out the box.
The treats were Pure Bites freeze-dried minnows. I expected them to be small whole minnows, but they were actually fairly large chunks. I broke them into smaller pieces for the kittens.
Also in the box was an umbrella dangler – it’s got a ring at one end so you can hang it from a doorknob or hook. I don’t have any doorknobs in the foster room (because of the pocket doors), nor any hooks; the knobs on the built-in cabinets would probably work, but they’re too long and the idea of a dangler is for it to dangle, not rest on the ground. So I improvised – there’s a hole in the top of the built-in desk where the cord for a keyboard could go through. I put the dangler there (with a big wooden spoon through the ring to keep it from slipping through), and it worked out well.
Later, when the other kittens woke up, a couple of them discovered the box and declared a box of toys to be just the ticket.

Thanks, KitNipBox, we are crazy about cat toys (and boxes)!
For the curious, Frankie is continuing to do well. It’s really nice to see him yawn big like that – when the stomatitis was at its worst, he could never have done that; he would have begun to yawn and then yelped in pain. He’s currently on a twice-weekly dose of Atopica, and it’s working great for him.
