The information card is on top of the themed paper. Little Lamb came over as soon as I opened the box.

He discovered the catnip pillow right away! He enjoyed having the first look of the box.

Impact

The information card describes the impact that GreaterGood and RescueBox have on charities. My only quibble is that it would be nice to read about a cat charity because this is the cat edition.

The information card contains the items, manufacturers, prices, and descriptions.  It also has a picture of a cute kitten at the top of the card!

Here are the items in the August Cat RescueBox. Both Little Lamb and Whiskers were hovering in the background waiting for me to open up the treats.

Cat Toy Burlap Bag with catnip by Krislin

The Cat Toy Burlap Bag with Catnip by Kirslin ($4.00 on information card, $6.71 on Amazon) has a great catnip scent. The textured pillow is the perfect kind for kitty paws to play with as they throw it and roll around with it. It contains USA catnip.

Nip-Stick by FFD Pet

The Nip-Stick by FFD Pet ($9.00 on information card, $5.99 on FFD website) has that pure catnip scent. A few of the ingredients that it contains are beeswax, coconut oil, and catnip oil. It can be used on scratchers, toys, and even on kitty paws!

Little Lamb
Little Lamb

Little Lamb loved the scent. He sniffed it over for a few minutes.  Sylvester, the long hair tuxedo cat, chilled out on the cat condo with his paws up in the air after I dabbed some on his paws. Little Lamb kept sniffing everything when I applied it to his paws.

Catviar Gourmet Cat Treats

The Catviar Gourmet Cat Treats (3 oz, $9.00) contain whole salmon, herring and shrimp as its first three ingredients. It does bother me that the packaging and ingredient list does not match what is on the website that I linked to in this post.

Whiskers
Whiskers

Whiskers is enjoying the made in the USA treats. Little Lamb refused to eat them. This is before I saw the difference in the ingredient lists.

Crazy tail Motorized String Toy by Petlinks System
Crazy Tail Motorized String Toy by Petlinks System

The Crazy Tail Motorized String Toy ($18.00 on information card, $10.99 on Chewy with a list price of $18.99) has a suction cup on the back allowing the toy to stick to the wall. Press the nose which causes the string to spin. We were unable to get it to stick to the wall, plus I am not sure if it is good for the toy to grab the string while it is spinning. I can hear the engine straining while the cat is keeping the string from spinning. It did come with batteries.

Paws galore Ceramic Bracelet
Paws Galore Ceramic Bracelet – Not me in the picture

The Paws Galore Ceramic Bracelet by the Animal Rescue Site ($7.00 on information card, on sale for $4.99) has beautiful handpainted ceramic paw print beads. It is an elastic stretch band fair-trade bracelet that is handmade and is fair-trade in Cuzco, Peru. My sister claimed it!

My sister took the cat pictures this time. Let’s see how they fared with the box. The pictures are taken in natural lighting with the kitties laying on an old comforter.

No one gets between Garfield and his catnip!

The kitties enjoyed the August RescueBox Cat edition. They had fun playing with their toys. Whiskers loved the Catviar treats. We will be using the Nip-Stick to freshen up the scratching pads. My sister loved the bracelet. Overall, it is a good box that gives back to charities while providing a variety of items for you and your kitties to enjoy.
