Purr-Packs Review!


If there is anything I like more than makeup and subscription boxes, it's my cats. Some would say I'm pretty obsessed! So when I discovered there was a subscription box for cats, I absolutely could not pass up reviewing it! Purr Packs was kind enough to send this box to me so my cats Jonah, Sally and Artemis could review it!

What is Purr Packs / How Does it Work?
Purr Packs curates boxes of goodies for every cat and cat lover to enjoy! They come in all sizes and varieties, so small and large cat families can join in on the fun!

Choose between 3 different sizes!

Once you've chosen the size of the box you want, you can choose how often you'd like a box to arrive! You can choose to get just 1 month, 3 months or 6 months. You can save BIG when you order multiple boxes at once, and each month your kitties will have fresh treats, cat nips, scratching posts, toys...you name it! We always spend so much money on subscription boxes for ourselves, why not for our cats too?

Finally once you've decided how often you'd like to receive the Purr Packs, you can then choose a "flavor profile" of the kinds of snacks your kitties enjoy, and then put your cats names on the gift tag. This not only lets Purr Packs know how many cats you have, but they are also kind enough to write your cats name(s) right on the box, which is totally adorable!

So...how did my cats like Purr-Packs?

You be the judge!
Even though Sally (cat #3) is super shy and didn't come out to play with everything until later, Artemis and Jonah were leaping all over the box before I even opened it! Purr-Packs is sneaky, and they sprinkled catnip inside the box, so my cats were pulling at everything in the box before I could even get a good photo! Love the picture of Jonah covered in catnip!

The Goodies!
Not only was this box huge (about twice the size of a laptop) but it was jam-packed with stuff!

  My cats are VERY particular with their treats, so I was a bit worried that they wouldn't like these. I was happy to see the Feline Greenies, because my cats occasionally have stinky breath and Greenies help with cleaning teeth and freshen breath. The Pet Greens are made with roasted chicken and healthy greens that help the digestive tract. To my surprise, all 3 of my cats love both bags of treats! They're also more natural and healthier for my cats than the treats I normally buy, so I am really happy with these treat choices!

 Purr-Packs included nice assortment of little mice and different balls covered with assorted fabrics. Artemis LOVES pushing the balls around, while Sally and Jonah are especially fond of the mouse with the feathered tail!

 I was SO excited about this cute little box! This is called a "Litter Pal," and it's a cute little decorative cardboard box that you fold upwards to make a small container. Inside is a package of 32 lightly scented plastic bags and twist ties. The bags fit snugly in the box and it creates a very easy way to scoop dirty litter and dispose of it quickly! 
I also did a little research on the company, and you can have these boxes shipped to you once a month so you always have fresh bags on hand! Each month, they send you a new decorator box as well as refill bags and twist ties.

Finally, there were 3 collars (one for each of my cats) as well as a very well-made grooming brush. My cats don't usually wear collars, but these were super cute and had little bells on them! Of course, I had to try them out! I'm not going to lie, having bells jingling non-stop all over my apartment was my own personal hell, haha! Not to mention my cats really disliked wearing a collar, so I will kindly pass these on to my local shelter. 

The grooming brush is absolutely lovely! It has metal bristles on one side and thick, black plastic ones on the other. My cats seemed to enjoy both sides, of course!

I thought that was the end of all the goodies, until I decided to let my cats play around in the box. I took the tray out to find that there was a HUGE cardboard scratching mat underneath all the other goodies! This scratcher was the size of the entire box, and included a little bag of catnip, which my cats promptly enjoyed. I think that the scratching mat has been the favorite with all my cats so far!


I could not believe how much stuff was packed into this box! There was a great variety of treats, toys, and useful items for me! I absolutely love the Litter Pal and my cats are loving everything! The products are well-made, and everything seemed to be packed with such care. The big scratching mat was such a great surprise! It made the box even more exciting for me and my furry pals, as I know how much they love them!

There aren't many cat subscription boxes out there, but I think out of the few that are available, Purr-Packs is truly the best from what I've seen! I love how customizable it is, and how you can choose to only receive one box, or many! This would make an amazing gift for a cat-lover, or for your own cats!

  1. I'm more of a dog person myself, but I LOVE that they now have cat boxes. You see so many monthly dog boxes that I was beginning to think that the cat lovers out there were getting neglected lol. Great review! And your babies are adorable!!!!

    1. You should e-mail them and see if maybe they would consider shipping internationally!

    1. Hi Christina!

      The Litter Pal is basically a cute decorative box that comes with a month supply of lightly scented plastic bags and twist ties. The Litter Pal website has a really excellent video that shows you how it's used, and your options as far as delivery if you're interested. Not to mention they have the great free sample offer! Check it out here: https://litterpal.com/ Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see a video which will show you how the litter pal is used. It's super cute!
