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.

cuddle-crate-february-2017-butterfly

SPOT Fluttering Butterfly – Value $6.06

Angus ripped one of the feathers out pretty quickly but both he and Sneaky enjoyed this toy.

Petlinks Flash Dance – Value $5.49

This is a small ball that lights up when tapped or rolled. One of the cats knocked this into a corner and I forgot about it. Then I found it again today. Or rather, Monkey found it. He thought it was pretty fun. So did Angus.

cuddle-crate-february-2017-treats

Smart n’ Tasty Feline Dental Treats in Salmon (3 oz) – Value $3.99

We’ve received these in many cat subscription boxes in the past. However, my cats like them, so I don’t really mind getting a repeat. I think Sneaky wanted them all for herself.

SPOT Animal Print Rattles (2) – Value $4.29

More feathers equals more fun for Angus! Some of the other cats showed interest as well.

Ourpets “A-Peeling” – Value $6.99

Ourpets “24 Karat” – Value $6.99

I am pretty sure we have received one or both of these from subscription boxes before. But, that’s all right. These are perceived as new by the cats and Monkey liked the banana a lot, while Angus really thought the feathers on the carrot were wonderful.

Licking feathers is Angus’s favorite new pastime.

Madison was really in a bad mood by this point. He wouldn’t come out from under the bed. He did show some interest in the treat bag, at least.

Monkey likes a banana!

The butterfly was pretty awesome. So were the treats.

Hey, I’m just glad he was hanging out somewhere other than under the covers. Mr. Kitty’s eyes are actually doing better – we get two whole weeks before going back to the veterinary ophthalmologist.

Verdict: I calculated a value of $33.81 for the February Cuddle Crate for cats box.  That is above the cost of the box for a month-to-month subscription and is also a significant improvement over last month. I thought the number and variety of toys were great and my cats enjoyed them (and the treats) as well! This was a good month for us from Cuddle Crate.

What do you think of the February Cuddle Crate? Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?

  1. Can you have someone review the small animal box?

  2. What happened to your baby? How did he get an eye bug? I have two cats, so I am curious.

    • Eye herpes is pretty common in shelter cats (Mr. Kitty was born in a shelter). Just like human herpesviruses (e.g., cold sores or chicken pox/shingles), stress and/or immune suppression can lead to flare ups. Mr. Kitty also has inflammatory bowel disease (actually diagnosed with this near the end of 2012). So he has to be on immune suppressants (prednisolone and chlorambucil) for his IBD so he actually wants to eat and keeps his food down and absorbs the nutrients.

      But, the medications that keep his digestive system working also make his eye herpes flare up. When that happens, he can scratch himself and develop eye ulcers and such. Continued irritation leads to uveitis, potentially glaucoma, etc. He also had an episode in the summer where his left eye was bleeding (that resulted in a trip to the emergency vet, of course). That is all over with but it seems the increased pressure that caused the bleeding resulted in something called a corneal bulla, or a white area in the eye. He gets these often and they then go away with treatment, but he doesn’t seem to stop getting them. (His other cornea is also damaged; he got something called a corneal sequestrum that he had to have surgically removed about a month ago because there was an infection.)

      Anyway, if there is an eye problem a cat can get, he has probably had it. I think he is totally blind in his left eye but I know he can see some out of his right eye. He attempts to chase the laser pointer a little bit, and he can still jump up on the bed or sofa.

      But not all cats with eye herpes have these kinds of problems. Sneaky got eye herpes from Mr. Kitty when I brought her into the house but all I had to do was give her some ointment for a few weeks and she has been good since 2009. Angus seems to have had eye herpes from the foster home and he just has a little discharge. I am giving him a lysine supplement (lysine acts against herpes viruses) and he seems to be getting better; he hasn’t scratched his eye yet. Monkey and Madison don’t have this problem, from what I can tell.

      • Edit: I missed a part. The increased pressure that caused the bleeding probably damaged the cornea which is why his eye looks large. The bulla is related as well.

        • I am glad that you are a wonderful Mum. Thank you for the explanation. Poor baby…its just not fair.
