Cat Lady Box Subscription Review – May 2017

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

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 review is of the Crazy Cat Lady, $39.99 a month, box.

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

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

Gold Trim Cat Trinket Dish – Listed Value $12.99

This is really cute and I love the pattern, too. But I think I am going to have to take this to work because if I put this anywhere within reach and put anything in it, Angus will knock it under a piece of furniture and I will never see it again.

Color-Changing Cat Light – Listed Value $15.99

I like this. It serves almost no practical purpose but I kind of don’t care because it makes me happy for some reason. You can see it lit up in a few colors in the cat photos below. This came with a USB charging cord and directions (I didn’t need them since I have a similar lamp shaped like a mushroom).

Catnip Daisy Toy – Listed Value $4.99

Mon Cattoo Cat Toy – Listed Value $4.99

I have the Crazy Cat Lady version of the box and it always comes with a couple of toys. I would say these were pretty typical of the types of toys you receive – catnip plushes, usually thematically related to the rest of the merchandise in some way, and almost always exclusive to the box. This month, Angus claimed both of the toys. (I think Angus has claimed 99% of the cat toys in the house, though.)

Cat Mom Tattoo Shirt – Listed Value $22.99

My weekend wardrobe consists entirely of cat-themed t-shirts so I am happy to have another. This fits me a little loosely (I don’t think the size range for this subscription goes down to XS) but is pretty comfortable and also light weight for summertime. I like the bright colors, too, of course.

Gratuitous cat photo time…

Madison investigates some of the items from the box.

Angus claimed both of the toys for himself.

I’m surprised Mr. Kitty puts up with me. But then I have had him for 12.5 years and I guess he doesn’t remember any life other than this.

Monkey and Sneaky check out the lamp.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $62 for the May 2017 (Crazy) Cat Lady Box. Although I had to take almost all the prices from the information card, the overall value seems reasonable to me, and that is a pretty typical value for this box. Angus loved the toys and I loved everything else so this month was a win for us.

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

  1. The photo of Mr.Kitty with the flower toy on his head is killing me with joy.

  2. Omg, this box is literally made for me!!! What a shame they don’t ship to Denmark!

  3. I subscribed 3 months ago and I am extremely happy with the first 2 boxes. I love the T-Shirt!!!!! and I was in desperate need for a trinket dish and this came just in time. Sapphire has claimed all the toys from the boxes and even pawed at the box even before I had a chance to open it. I am really looking forward to receiving the June Meowloha box and I will continue to be a subscriber. Definitely recommend!!! I also like that they donate a portion of the proceeds to cat organizations. So not only am I paying for great and unique cat themed items but it makes me feel better knowing that other kitties are being supported.

  4. Just canceled ipsy, BeautyFix and FabFitFun so naturally I was on the hunt for some new subs and this one has my interest peaked! If it pans out I might be a lifer~

    • Aw, yay, Angela! I hope you love everything, and we’d love to have you as part of our cat lady family for life! 🙂

      • What one would I get first, If I subbed the 10th or the 11th of May?

        • You’d get June, these ship super early (like at the end of the previous month, really).

  5. That artwork is absolutely precious!!

  6. If I were to subscribe for this box today, would I receive this theme or would I receive the box for June? Really loving what is in this box this month!

    • Hi Kristen! So sorry we didn’t see your comment earlier! This was the last box we sent, so you’d be subscribing for a future box. I hope you’ll give us a try! We have so much fun cat lady stuff coming up!

  7. My boxes are scheduled to arrive Tuesday though I think it will be before that. Florida to California is quite the trip. I ordered 2, one for part of my mom’s Mother’s Day gift and one for me. I think she will like it and so will her kitties. She is already mad at me for getting her something, she asked for just a card but oh well she’ll get over it!

  8. Happy is exactly what I felt when I first saw the lamp, Ragan! 🙂 It’s just a happy thing! I’m so glad you felt the exact same way about it!

    And Angus can hog all the toys he wants… 😉 As long as he’s happy, we’re happy!

  9. I do believe I NEED that cat lamp. If I can’t swap for it, I might just hunt it down on Amazon. So. Cute. 😀

    • Hi Tamara! We do have some extras, and we’ll have them up in our Shop Past Boxes shop soon! Just want to make sure everyone’s boxes get delivered safe and sound first, then we’ll put them up for anyone else who wants one! 🙂

  10. The way our master bedroom/bathroom is set up, the kitty lamp works perfect for a night light, which is really needed because Oberon leaves his toys in my path, so I run the risk of tripping over them when I wake up in the middle of the night to go potty (I don’t think it’s on purpose, but you never know). I also love the dish and the T-shirt. The toys from this box are the only ones we give Casanova, who is just now at almost 3 years old, learning to play with toys (he’s had a hard life). So bottom line, I LOVE this box!

    • Socky leaves her furry mouse for us to step on in the dark. My husband swears that his epitaph will be “Killed by a mouse”.

  11. What a greedy toy hog Angus is. Too funny him rolling around with both toys at once. That had me laughing. Even my spoiled cats only play with one toy at a time and they both want to play with the same toy at the same time. They mostly like dangle toys and ribbons. One likes stuffed animals to use as kickers but he has never destroyed one, amazingly. Then when he is done playing he uses it as a pillow to sleep on or hug. Louie and Leeloo say hi to your kitties.

  12. Love, love, love this box! I was looking at the cute kitty glow lamp on Amazon a while ago but didn’t purchase it and was so happy to have received it yesterday along with the awesome “Catmom” tattoo tee.

  13. I’m really excited to get this box. My first box was last month and my cats went crazy before I even opened the box. They loved the toys.

  14. Looks like a great box. My first and only box was last month’s midcentury mewdern, and although I like that style, the ceramic kitties just didn’t work for me. Wish I had gotten this box instead.

    @Ragan – you might want to try something called “museum putty” to keep your helpers from knocking things off shelves. It works really well and does not leave marks on anything. It’s saved many, many pottery pieces in my house!!

    • I second museum putty! We even mentioned in on the card in last month’s box. It’s a miracle in my house. (I have the naughtiest kitty in the whole world, I think!)

  15. You can get the lamp from Amazon’s third-party sellers for $10-$15, so I’m surprised that they didn’t try to mark up the price more on the info card. Good on them, tbh.

    (My coworker has one in her cubicle and I love to stop by sometimes and just squish it. It’s so cute.)

    • Thank you, Sharon! We definitely don’t ever want to mark anything up just to do that. I believe people pretty much know how much stuff would cost, so it doesn’t do any good to try to make it look like more. 🙂 We want everyone to love everything for what it really is!

      Squish is a great word for what you can do to the lamp! Haha! I like how it puffs back out after a squishing. 😉

  16. I am subscribing for the lamp and the shirt. Just adorable.

  17. OMG I want one of those shirts SO bad!

    • Hi Erika!

      Yay! We do have extras of the shirt, and they’ll be up in our Shop Past Boxes shop soon! Probably by over the weekend! 🙂 I hope you’ll get to grab one! Soooo soft!

  18. Does anyone know if you order today, do you get this box? It’s soooo cute!

    • When I first ordered the box I sent an email asking for that months box and they were able to accommodate me without any issues. Customer service is great.

    • Hi Trisha!

      If we have leftovers of the month before, we’ll always try to get one for you if you subscribe late. Just shoot us an email (like Christi said!) and if we can, we’ll definitely push back your subscription so you can get the last box! 🙂 Email us, though, so we know you want it!

  19. This box made me happy! I have irrationally been wanting one of these lamps, even though it serves no purpose. The girls loved the toys. And the funniest thing was one of the kittehs rolling around on the shirt because it smelled like catnip from the toys. 🙂

    • Awww, yay! This is exactly the reaction we were hoping, Laurie! Happy is awesome! 🙂 I’m so glad you and the kittehs enjoyed it!

      (I’ve seen a couple pictures where the cats are using the shirt as a play mat… the toys must have really marinated them in catnip while they were shipping, haha!)
