Mew may remember later on last year we shared their epic Catmas Box and the Calm Kitty Box? Today we're back with their special Valentine's Take Meowt Box, and OH MY COD are we excited to show mew what's inside!

So let's show mew what was in the box, sharing the love from Gus and Bella

OMC! Melvyn couldn't believe it; it was the box that just kept giving.  He said, "WOW just look at all those pawesome goodies, and as I'm furst here it's all mine... Fudge will think twice about imposing the furst come furst gets it all rule like last time muwahahahahahaaaaaaa!"

Let's take a closer look at all the love...

Furst up is the King Catnip heart and a bar of Whitaker's luxury milk chocolate, now the P.A. is very partial to a spot of chocolate! MOL

Mew may also be wundering why the catnip heart below is looking a bit furry... well the next picture tells it all!

As we were taking individual pics of all the pawesome goodies, the P.A. came to the last item, the catnip heart... well she thought there was a catnip heart but it was now mysteriously absent.  In fact, she thought she was losing her marbles for a moment as she hadn't seen any of us near the goodies apart from Melvyn and he snoopervising her.  

But then she heard a sound coming from the porch and went to investigate, and there she found Fudge red-pawed with the catnip heart he'd so sneakily stolen.  She never even saw him, so his ninja skills are really outstanding; though he was a little hissed off he'd got rumbled and that she took it away to take a picture! MOL

Next up is the Grain Free Vet's Kitchen ultra-fresh food in delicious chicken flavour, and also a packet of Catnip Dental Chew Sticks.

Monte the Mouse felt cat toy came next and more Vet's Kitchen heart-shaped treats in a variety of delicious and truly nom-able flavours.

And the P.A. got this gorgeous All You Need Is Love and A Cat Plaque by Sass & Belle, and a pair of the most fluffy, soft slipper-socks to keep her ice-block feet supurr cosy and snuggly-bugly - paw themed of course!

EPIC or what?

So what did we think to the Take Meowt Box?

We'll let the pictures tell the story...

 Melvyn got Monte the mouse with the epically long tail all in a ravel! MOL

All The B Team got in on the action...

Latecomer Smooch was outside when the box was opened but he soon made up for his absence in a spectacular way, and another reason to keep the box is because we love them as demonstrated by Smooch and Fudge.

The dry food was very nom-able and the treats were even more so...

Five out of six cats loved both the dry food and the treats; the 6th cat being Pandora who doesn't eat treats or dry food, so really it was 5 out of 5! MOL

As with the two previous boxes which we were extremely fortunate to try, this one doesn't disappoint at all; in fact, it exceeded our expectations and just proves the attention to detail and delight factor run very high at Gus and Bella's.  We enjoyed everything in the box with much gusto and verve as mew have seen, and the P.A. was supurr happy with her pressies; she's hung the plaque in the kitchen and is wearing the snuggly socks as we type, oh and the chocolate is being saved for later, but don't tell dad! SHHHHHHH! MOL

We think the Gus and Bella Take Meowt Box is Epically Epic and scores 10 out of 10 paws, top marks
