Gus & Bella Box ‘Feline Spooky’ Edit Review by Mel & Lilith – October 2020

A huge thank you to Emily and the Team over at Gus & Bella for asking Lilith & I to review their box again! We absolutely loved the September one and the fabulous Christmas Edition in 2019, and the Cat Mum edition back in March. Getting asked to review their October Box is extra special, as it is my Birthday 3 days before Halloween!

This box is aimed at Cats & their Humans! Of course Lilith loves it when she gets to have treats too. She really is spoilt already, she literally rules our house and is a Queen. For those who don’t know, we rescued Lil a few years ago now, and before we had her my partner never liked cats. To say they are inseparable would be putting it mildly. She actually sleeps on his chest!

Gus & Bella boxes are themed each month, they come beautifully wrapped with printed tissue paper to match the stunning box design…

This months theme is:

Feline Spooky ’20

Time for Lil & I to test out these treats…

Black Cat Slippers

These are exactly the kind of thing I would buy! In fact it took me all of 5 minutes to put them on, and I haven’t had them off since. I work from home and now I do so cosily in my Crazy Cat lady new slippers. I love them! They have little rubber grips to stop me slipping on my wooden floors too.

Scaredy Cat Postcard

This is a really cute addition to the box, and nice to see unknown brands included to promote small sellers on Etsy.

Halloween Chocolate Lollipop

For once, I got to eat almost all of this. I gave a bite each to the boys and scoffed the rest. It was very yummy!

Treat Dispenser Toy

We haven’t managed to get Lilith to twig about this yet, we did try to show her what it was for but she flicked her tail haha! I think this is going to end up being donated to Horace the hedgehog, he absolutely loves his dreamies!

Handmade Kicker Toy

Ok, this was a massive hit, as you can see from the photos. I love that it is a perfect size for her to carry around in her mouth. She has done just that since I gave her it, and she sleeps with it too. Catnip toys are just brilliant, the Halloween theme is a bonus!

True Hemp Treats

So we used this in the treat ball, and she did not manage to get it out. She was a bit wary at first as they are not her usual treats, but she did try them. We will also be able to share these with Horace the Hedgehog so a win/win.

Webbox Tasty Sticks

Lilith has had these before and loves them, so I was glad to see them included in the box. I am a fan of Webbox as a brand and have bought their food several times.

Edgard Cooper Free Run Chicken

We have not yet tried this as we are using up our current bag, but we will get around to trying it and have had these in a previous box and they were very high quality.

Edgard Cooper Glorious MSC Whitefish

Again, we have not yet tried this.

Edgard Cooper Glorious Fish & Chicken

This is a winner! She absolutely loved this and I will be buying more of these.

Our Verdict?

Lilith was quite taken with the handmade toy, and I love my Cat slippers. I am so made up with this box, I love reviewing them and genuinely do recommend this box.

Gus & Bella box is a brilliant concept, that is perfectly executed time and time again.
