I love how the information cards have custom artwork every month. And the back has more information about the items in the box, including the makers of the custom items.

Note: Pretty much every item in this box is exclusive so I have taken the values from the information card.

Spectra Fabulous Scarf – Value $22.99

This is exclusive for the box and if the artwork looks familiar, it’s because it’s from the same artist who designed the umbrella from a couple of months ago. I have been wearing a lot of scarves lately because they are good for hiding things when necklines get too low (like if you are trying to wear clothes that are too big because you lost weight). So this will get worn a lot!

Absolutely Meowvelous Shirt – Value $24.99

This is a very soft shirt, but it is also loose and flowy. It is such a different style from what Cat Lady Box usually sends out that they had to send out an email about it – people were wondering if they should size down for future boxes! (I have it in size “small” and it is pretty low cut and sometimes falls off my shoulder. So I mostly have been sleeping in it. If I was going to wear it out of the house, I’d really need a tank or camisole under it.) I appreciate that they were trying to provide different styles so as not to send us the same shirt with different designs over and over again, but I also wouldn’t mind the same shirt with different designs over and over again. My weekend wardrobe currently consists of cat shirts of the day from the now defunct LOLMart.

Glamour Puss Sunglasses – Value $29.99

This is my second pair of cat eye sunglasses this summer! I like that these have a hard case so they won’t get smashed in my purse. And they go well with the glamour theme for the month!

Glamour Puss Catnip Sunglasses Toy from Loopies – Value $6.99

Meowlympic Torch Catnip Toy from Loopies – Value $4.99

Apparently the toys this month are exclusive to Cat Lady Box, as well. I like getting exclusive toys because, well, I’ve gotten a lot of repeat cat toys from other cat subscription boxes lately, and there’s no danger of that here. (I guess repeats are bound to happen when you get like 10 cat boxes a month, which of course most people don’t…) The feathers on the torch were particularly popular and Monkey enjoyed the sunglasses.

Gratuitous cat photos ahead…

I like how he’s pretending to be above playing with feathered toys. He secretly loves them.

This pose lasted for about 1/1,000,000 of a second…

Sneaky enjoyed this toy quite a lot!

Whereas Mr. Kitty did not enjoy being mocked, not at all. Luckily, he’s old and slow so I was able to get a photo.

Verdict: I calculated a value of almost $90 for the August 2016 (Crazy) Cat Lady Box. I did have to take all the individual item values from the information card, but I feel like even if one or two things are inflated a bit, you are still getting your money’s worth (better than that, really). Plus, you can’t get these things from anywhere else, and  I (or my cats) will use everything in the box!

What do you think of the August Cat Lady Box? Do you subscribe to any cat boxes?

  1. Best subscription box ever. I’m never disappointed with the quality and generally use everything in the box. Toys I don’t think my guys will like go to the local sanctuary – The torch has been one of the biggest hits so far with at least one of my cats 🙂 Like you, I’m using the shirt for sleeping b/c it’s just a bit TOO loose, but it’s so soft and comfy. And September’s box is even better 🙂

    • I submitted the September review already but not sure when it will show up. I did like that one a lot!

  2. Ragan – I LOVE your polish! What on earth is it???

    (Also the picture of Monkey with the sunglasses is killer!)

    • It was the purple one from this month’s Julep collection. I think it is called “Alysha.”

  3. I liked the loose flowy fit of the shirt. I’ve been tending to steer towards flowy styles just because they make me feel less self conscious about weight gain in my stomach as weight gain in that area was unusual for me till a couple years ago (thanks birth control). The flowy fit is perfect for wearing strappy sports bras under.

  4. This is my #1 fave subscription box. My cats KNOW when this box comes. I have no idea how they know it’s the Cat Lady Box vs the other boxes I get but they KNOW. This month was less of a hit for them, but much more of a hit for me. LOVE the shirt and LOVE the scarf and sunglasses. I think I may hang the scarf up instead of wearing it because it looks so cute. <3

    • My cats like every box. Doesn’t matter what’s in it. I get 40+ subscription boxes a month and they like them all. Madison was very interested in Rawbox this month, which is strange, because it’s pretty much all raw vegan food, which should not interest a cat at all…

  5. Wonderful box, as usual. I’ve come to expect nothing less than pure delight with this box, to be honest. Did swap the sunglasses, though. Darn prescription eyewear needs. The tee I really like; it’s sort of effortless chic so it fit the month’s theme well, IMO. I wish I knew how Dorian always hits a home run with the toys. Seriously. Cat Lady Box toys are always a huge hit here.
