November Pawalla Box for Cats

A while back I discovered a subscription box for cats and dogs.  I had contacted the company and they were nice enough to send me a complimentary box to try.  I liked the box but the price was a little high so I didn't subscribe right away.  I found a deal through Amazon local deals for 3 months for $42.  Again I signed up for the cat box since they are the only company who makes a box for cats.  The cost of the Pawalla Box is $26 a month or an annual subscription for $252. The annual brings the price down to $21 a month and is billed yearly.  Shipping is included in both plans.  Each box contains 6 or more new products including premium all-natural wet food, treats, supplements and toys.  The treats and toys are selected based on the age and size of your cat or dog. 

The good:

Have a cat in your life?  Now there is a box for your kitties

Variety: There is a lot of variety is this box.  Everything from food to toys to supplements, just as promised.

Info: The provide a giant card with information on all the products included in the box. 

Amount: The amount of stuff in this box was enough for both my kitties to share. 

The not so good:

Price: It's what I would consider a luxury box at over $25 a month.  

Subscriptions: I wish they had a 3 or 6 month subscription offered at a little discount.  


This is the box.  It's fairly large and all the items have their own compartments.  You can also see the information card that is included. 


Contents of box with retail price:

(2) 5.5 oz. cans of Halo Spot's Pate, Chicken.  Value = $1.75/ea

(2) 5.5 oz. cans of Halo Spot's Pate, Whitefish. Value = $1.75/ea

.5 oz container of Cat-Man-Doo Bonito Flakes. Value = $6.49 - Gracie enjoyed this. Honestly it looked like the bonito flakes I've seen on my sushi in restaurants and I love bonito flakes. 

2.1 oz. bag Greenies - SmartBites - Skin and Fur - Chicken. Value = $2.99

3 oz. bag Wellness Pure Delights, Turkey & Salmon Jerky. Value = $4.99

2 tablets of Fizzion Pet Stain & Odor Remover concentrate - makes 23 oz solution/ea. Value = $2.50/ea. (box of 8 tablets $19.99)

Petlou's 10" Flat Squirrel crinkle squeaky toy Value = $7.50

The total value of my box is $33.97.  I love the little treats in this box, especially the bonito flakes.  I don't normally buy wet food for my cats but since there are 4 cans in this pack I think treating them once a week is reasonable.  The were only slightly interested in the toy but I'm sure if I rubbed a little catnip on it that will change.  My black cat is a very nervous and shy cat and throws up occasionally.  I know, weird right?  The vet said some cats do that and she's otherwise healthy and not losing weight so not to worry about it. I'll be testing out the Fizzion product which I'm hoping will work.     

Verdict: It's a splurge but what a fun little box for the kitties.

  1. Your giveaway is not working for me. There are options for me to enter listed.

    I signed up for the Cyber Monday deal for my cats. I cannot wait to get my first box. I think it will be their Christmas gift this year. I don't think I'll keep it past a month though, because it is so very pricey!

    1. I have a black cat also - she's very shy and skittish though. I bet your baby Aussie is an adorable ball of fluff! Huskies are beautiful dogs good for you for saving her1 I'll never understand people who have the ability to abuse animals.

  21. I just discovered your blog tonight, while Google-searching PopSugar Must Have reviews, and love it! Also, I was super happy to find out there's a subscription box for cats -- I couldn't believe it! I'd actually searched for one in the past, but never come across Pawalla. I would be really excited to try it -- or rather, to have my cat, Kitty, check it out for me. :o) Thanks for offering this great giveaway!
