Pusheen has a new subscription box specifically for cats and I recently received the Spring 2022 Pusheen Cat Kit, which has an adorable gardening theme. Let’s find out what my cats, Evey, Adora and Ophelia, think about it.
The box arrived with clear plastic shrink-wrap so I could see the pretty green design with flowers and mushrooms, drawn in classic Pusheen-style.
The box is designed to become a toy for your cat. The cardboard is thin, so several of the punch-out pieces were punched through before I opened it, so it was a good thing they wrapped it in plastic. Shipping time was lengthy – I don’t know if I would classify June as “spring.” However, summer is still gardening weather and I was still excited about the theme.
The box included 8 items with a mix of things for cats and things for owners – litter scooper with holder, denim collar, Pusheen charm, dry-erase feeding checklist, spring teaser toy, 2 reusable food lids, curly ribbon planter plush, and a 3-in-1 crinkle-teething-catnip toy. I love the shade of spring green used throughout the items, which were even cuter than I had imagined.
My favorite item was the spring teaser toy featuring Pusheen. I love the little ribbons that look like water spraying out of the watering can. The Pusheen on top is heavy, which means that it waves back and forth for a long time. Both Evey and Adora enjoyed chewing on it. It’s so cute and well-made, I like just having it out on display.
The cats’ favorite item was the ribbon planter plush. They loved chasing and pulling the curly ribbons.
There was also an adorable crinkle-teething-catnip toy that looks like a tiny packet of seeds and I was surprised that the cats were the least interested in that one.
The cat food lids featuring Sloth looked too large for the small 3 oz. cans we use. However, the underside of the lids feature inner rings that give the the ability to seal over any of 3 size cans.
As for the other items, there was a denim collar with a floral pattern, and I even got Evey to model it for 2 whole minutes! The litter scooper has a hook to clip to the side of the litter box. It’s a nice size but I’m not sure about the phrase, ‘maybe later’ when talking about litter. The dry erase feeding checklist is a good idea and attractive enough to hang up. I clipped the enamel charm onto my gardening raincoat since my cats don’t wear collars (they are inside cats).
Overall, I felt that the majority of the box items were well designed for use with cats and there was a lot of thought put into the design of each item. I feel the phrases used, like ‘just chill’ and ‘maybe later’, don’t really fit with the theme. Otherwise, a lovely color palette on adorable and useful cat supplies for any gardening fan!
