Cat Lady Box Subscription Box Review – October 2015
Cat Lady Box is a monthly subscription box for cat ladies (or anyone who is crazy about cats)! The Cat Lady Box has 2-3 cat-themed items – wearables, items for the home, books, etc. The Crazy Cat Lady Box contains everything from the Cat Lady Box plus a few items just for cats.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
Here’s a look inside the box.

Included was an information card with a list of products in the box on one side and a nice print on the other side.
There was also a letter with more information on the box and the items in it.
Cat Head Drink Coasters by Feltplanet (set of 3) – Value $12.60
I love these (of course). My fiancé can have his terra cotta coasters back and I will use these from now on! These are handmade from thick merino wool.
Cat Wall Decals by Looksugar – Value $12
This is my first experience with wall decals. I have not tried to remove them yet, so I can’t speak to the removability aspect (but they’re *supposed* to be removable…). They would also be great for Halloween decorations. I am thinking about adding some Emergency Googly Eyes.
My fiancé didn’t want these in the main part of the house (!) so I put them downstairs in my yoga/exercise room next to my mala rack. I did not use a ruler to line them up (I know they’re not evenly spaced).
Cat Lady Box Exclusive Mug – Value $17.99
This price from the information card seemed a little high to me but then I started looking at custom mugs on Zazzle and it’s really not so far out of the price range for similar items. I drink a lot of tea and Crio-Bru so this will definitely get used.
Cat Lady Box Car Magnet – Value $5 (?)
Imperial Catnip Critters – Value $3.50
The magnet isn’t listed on the information card, but in the letter they mention that magnets were sent out last month that started falling apart in the rain. So they included this one as a replacement. I’m guessing at the value.
I got a little catnip penguin (multiple animals were possible, I believe). These are hand-knit in Peru and stuffed with catnip in the USA. I wanted to take a picture of my cats playing with it, but one of them carried it off while I wasn’t looking and I didn’t find it for two days…
And yes, I totally put the magnet on my car.
Furc by TheRetroKats – Value $8
This toy has two ends (a cork and a feathery part with a bell) connected by a stretchy string.
My cats being how they are, they didn’t pay a lot of attention to the feathery part (maybe a little)…
But they were totally into the cork.
One last gratuitous cat picture before we go:
Of course they wouldn’t sit in the box and pose for photos while I had the camera out. But they were definitely interested in the box! (Since you all know Nyx by now, let me introduce you to my cats, as well. Sneaky is the calico, Mr. Kitty is the orange tabby, Madison is the longhaired black cat, and Monkey is the tan and white longhaired cat.)
Verdict: I calculated a value of approximately $59 for the October 2015 (Crazy) Cat Lady Box. That’s quite a bit higher than the cost of the box, which is especially nice considering the number of handmade and exclusive items. This was just a fun box for me, in general.
What do you think of the October 2015 Cat Lady Box? Do you subscribe to any cat boxes?
