Vancouver is arguably a city for the dogs, but a local business is now becoming a hit with cat lovers. Two local entrepreneurs are offering a subscription service, called MeowBox, for people who are kitty crazy.
The MeowBox is delivered to your door each month, filled with toys, treats and accessories. Many of the items are handmade and everything in the box is made in Canada or the U.S.
“One of things we like to do is have our subscribers try a sample size of food or treats, or perhaps give them a toy from a company they've never heard of.We sell to the U.S. and Canada, so it's a nice way to show everyone what everyone has,” said Olivia Canlas, MeowBox founder.
The box ranges in price from $19 to $29 depending on whether you sign up for a one, three or six month subscription.
