Cuddle Crate Cat Box Review + Coupon – November 2016
Cuddle Crate is a monthly subscription box for pets. You can opt for a dog box (choose your dog size), a cat box, or a small animal box (select gerbil/hamster or rabbit/guinea pig). You can also combine pet types with higher tier subscriptions (i.e., get a combined cat/rabbit box) and opt for a bi-monthly box if monthly is too often for you.

Buddy Biscuits in Tempting Tuna (3 oz) – Value $3.16
We’ve gotten a lot of Buddy Biscuits in cat (and dog) subscription boxes. They’re semi-moist treats, made in the USA, come in a resealable bag, and don’t have a strong smell. The cats love them, too.
Bowtie Chasers from Cat Dancer (2 count) – Value $4
If you have ever had a Cat Dancer toy, these are from the same company. Cats really like the twine for some reason. Sneaky thought these were a lot of fun.
Pioneer Pet Nip Nibblers (3 count) – Value $3.99
My cats have had these before from somewhere. Mr. Kitty likes to chew on them. I guess it is the combination of texture (a big thing for Mr. Kitty) and catnip that attracts him. These are lightweight and easy for the cats to toss around, as well.
Categories Self-Spinning Rollaround Mouse – Value $12.99
This has some sort of motor inside and it spins for a long time. It made kind of a loud noise on the dining room floor (bare hardwood) but that didn’t scare the cats off. This toy was a new discovery for us but apparently has been discontinued by the manufacturer.
Kong Active Wild Tails – Value $5.09
Feathers are always a win for my guys and gal, and KONG cat toys are usually pretty well made.
Gratuitous cat photos ahead:
I can always get Madison to come out for treats.
Madison sniffs one of the dental sticks.
Monkey liked the treats this month.
He liked this toy a lot. However, he managed to look completely non-thrilled for this picture.
Sneaky liked the bowtie toy a lot. We tugged back and forth on it. Unfortunately, my hand ended up more in focus than the cat did…
Sneaky bites something!
Sneaky investigates the self-spinning mouse. I really thought the cats would be afraid of this, but she watched it for quite awhile.
Mr. Kitty didn’t get to eat these treats. But he sure wanted to.
Madison sniffs the dental stick while Mr. Kitty sniffs my hand. Probably I had treat residue on it…
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $29.23 for the November Cuddle Crate for cats box. That is slightly over the cost of the box and much better than last month’s value. Naturally, my cats loved the least expensive things the best, but that’s cats for you. Overall I would say this month’s contents are representative of the brands and types of items you’ll receive in this subscription.
