We love the phrase:

Delivering happiness to cats and their humans! 

and its true! MOL

So let's show mew what was in the box.

What's In The Box ©BionicBasil® Gus & Bella Box - Unveiling with Fudge and Melvyn

Fudge and Young Melvyn carefully opened the box to reveal all the wunderful goodies that were hiding inside.

Aftur all the goodies had been retrieved, Fudge decided on the ultimate test, could he and his gigantic floof tail fit in the Gus & Bella Box?  And much to our complete surprise he succeeded with only a moderate over-spillage of fur and floof! MOL

"Very impressive for sure!" Fudge mused. 

  So far top marks all round....

So What Did We Think?

We loved the teal box - very posh - and as we opened the crisp-white tissue paper we were greeted with a fabulous array of goodies; not only did the P.A. get a supurr new mug - which we must add is her new fav - she also got cat shaped tea bags to enjoy in said mug, total purrfection for sure!  [She just needs the chocolate Digestives to complete the trifecta!]

We got:- 

A Catnip Teabag from our fav catnip toy supplier Freak Meowt

Webbox Tuna Mousse, Salmon and Chicken Dry Food Sample and Salmon Flavoured Lick-e-Lix Treats.

Plus we got samples of Pet Remedy calming wipes and spray.

This selection is called: Calm Kitty and is designed especially for November which of course is a rather noisy month, with all the firework celebrations and so we need all the help we can get to keep calm and carry on.  So an absolute purrfect selection of items to soothe, calm and and entertain when needed most. 

We have used the Pet Remedy before and find it very useful, so to see that they now make wipes is great, a really neat idea.

The catnip teabag was a huge hit, we had one years ago and adored it.

Anyhoo, see how we got on in our video... 

Purrlease click here, if mew're having trouble watching the video.

As mew can see we had a great time, so the big question is; would we recommend the Gus and Bella Box to mew?

YES we would, we think it's really well thought out and definitely does deliver happiness as previously stated.

If mew'd like to try a box from Gus & Bella, we have a discount code just for mew, and guess what?  We're also reviewing their Santa Paws Christmas Box later in the month and we're supurr excited.  It's apparently EPIC, and mew can pre-order yours now!

  1. That is such a nice bunch of goodies and Fudge seems really, really pleased!

  2. Why am I NOT surprised the first two on the scene were Fudge and Melvyn? As great as those goodies are, we think its later contents are best <3

  3. Wow, I'm surprised Amber didn't snatch that one on arrival. . . . or maybe she has one on order for herself? Best check the credit cards just in case, MOL

  4. Those are great goodies for cats and humans too and obviously much enjoyed. Well done on fitting in the box. You reminded me of Eric when he tried to get in a Flynn sized box!

  5. A pretty fab box is right. However, I have a problem with them never putting the price in US Dollars. I understand their out of the UK or there abouts but really if you want customers from the US put your price in US dollars too. Otherwise I think the box is a good.

  6. Very nice box Fudge. Nice stuff inside too

  7. Very cool bunch of stuff. Those nip tea bags look fun. XO

  8. Great review ! What a pawsome box, that's a lot of cool stuff ! And Fudge proved that the box had a purrfect dimension. Purrs
