Introducing KitNipBox, the Cat Lover's Version of BarkBox

KitNipBox / KitNipBox

Want to spoil your cat? If you’re envious of your dog-loving friends’ BarkBox subscription, rest assured: There’s an equivalent for felines called KitNipBox.

Launched in 2014, KitNipBox sends customers a monthly box of healthy cat treats, toys, accessories, and other goodies. Occasionally, the packages are themed: In 2015, amNewYork reports, each month's goodie selection was inspired by a different U.S. city, starting with New York City.

If you were wondering why it took so long for cats to get their own monthly service, you aren't alone. “As cat lovers, we noticed a disparity in the pet industry,” KitNipBox officials said in a release. “Many of the latest innovations have focused on dogs. A typical pet store has at least five times more dog products vs. cat products. We felt that there was a great deal of unmet demand and that the cat market was being underserved.”

A portion of KitNipBox’s monthly fee, which starts at $20, is donated to animal welfare organizations. (Cat lovers with two pets can pay $30 for a multi-cat box that offers more treats.) Eventually, the company hopes to expand their scope from kitty merchandise and offer a 24/7 vet hotline and video chat, an aggregated adoption search, and other services.

KitNipBox is currently available to customers in the U.S., Canada, and the United Kingdom. For more information, you can visit their website.
