WhiskerBox is a themed monthly cat subscription box that features artisanal luxury items for your kitty. Four to six premium items are included which can be “stylish apparel, stimulating toys, scrumptious treats, and one-of-a-kind treasures from around the world.” Discerning felines with dietary needs can opt for non-edible items. A short profile is filled out at checkout including cat’s name, gender, weight, and if treats are to be included. WhiskerBox supports shelters, rescues, and sanctuaries with each box purchased. The luxury kitty box ships free to the United States and Canada.
WhiskerBox items are tested by feline lifestyle experts. Smokey, the head feline lifestyle expert, was a stray rescued by his humans at eight weeks old. My kitties think that is a cool job.

The May theme was “TACOCAT is a Pawlindrome.” My cats names are listed on the card. Zoey is a 6-year-old tabby and Sunny is an 9-month-old orange tabby and they are both female cats that we adopted from our local animal shelter.
Here are the items in the May WhiskerBox!
Sunny was the first to jump on the box.
She sniffed the taco.
She decided to roll around in the box!
Our first menu selection is PLAY.
Polydactyl Salsa Verde Homemade Catnip Toy Polydactyl is an Etsy site featuring items made by a former Burlesque dancer! My toy doesn’t have the same rick rack coming out of the top as the ones on the site, but my cats enjoyed playing with it all the same. Check out the website for other realistic looking food items!
Sunny liked to gnaw on this catnip toy.
Zoey sniffed it.
Then she embraced it.
Next she licked it. She loves to lick catnip toys!
Finally, she just kept it nearby.
Housecat Club Catnip Taco Cat Toy Both of the items sent this month fit the Cinco de Mayo theme. This taco is filled with organic catnip and seems pretty sturdy.
Sunny gave a few sniffs and could be seen throwing it up in the air.
This cat LOVES her catnip!
Next on the menu is TASTE.
Weruva TruLuxe Steak Frites with Beef & Pumpkin in Gravy Ooh la la, my cat can dine like she’s in France with this classic human food dish.
I can’t get over how much this looks like a can of stew for humans! Beef, pumpkin, sweet potato, and carrots are the first few ingredients in this deluxe cat food that Sunny scarfed down faster than you can say bon appétite!
Applaws Natural Cat Treat 100% Tuna Loin This treat is made out of human grade tuna and looks and smells like the stuff I use in sandwiches. Sunny devoured it enthusiastically. Zoey rarely eats treats, no matter which brand. She also refuses canned cat food so go figure.
Cat Couture Button Down Dress Shirt and Cargo Pants Outfit Wow, what a fancy outfit! It looks like something a dapper cat would wear. My cats aren’t exactly princesses but this is kind of dude-ish. Check out the details on this costume: braided suspenders, fancy buttons, plaid bowtie, collar.
Here is the other side of the costume, which includes 3 snaps. I tried putting this on my cats when they were drowsy but they would have none of it. By the time I got some front paws in they were wide awake and fighting to get out. Maybe they wanted a tutu.
My older daughter was holding Zoey, who thinks she;s a baby and loves to be held. She seemed calm so I eased one arm into the costume.
I managed to get one of the back legs in while she was still being held, then Gemma put her on the ground and I gently put the other arms in. Sunny had to investigate.
This is the best picture I could get with the whole costume on. It says size L on the inside but this was too small for Zoey, and I didn’t even try to fasten the buttons. She’s laying down because I don’t think she could walk.
Sunny felt this was a great time to attack and since Zoey couldn’t use her arms for protection we decided costume time was over. I’m not even going to try with Sunny, that cat is CRAZY!
My cats loved their new toys and although the costume was well made and cute it was a miss for my picky pets. I do like that I can try a new food treat or toy without having to buy in bulk, in case my cats dislike the proffered product. I think WhiskerBox is a great choice for people who like to dress up their cats (and whose cats like being dressed up), provide them with unique toys, and treat them to delectable foods that you might not find in stores.
