Cat Lady Box Subscription Review – July 2017
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.

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.
Crazy Catnip Pencil – Listed Value $4.99
School Bus Catnip Toy – Listed Value $4.99
This is the Crazy Cat Lady version of the box, so there were two catnip toys. These are usually custom toys that fit the box theme really well. The toys are always well-made, and these are no exception. I think the pencil was somewhat favored because of the fuzzy end, but Angus has been tossing the school bus around as well. These are fairly typical of the toys you will receive. Angus will play with everything so they are good fits for us.
“I Work Hard So My Cat Can Have a Better Life” Shirt – Value $22.99?
The information card had a typo and inadvertently left out a value for this shirt, so I took the value from another t-shirt Cat Lady Box sent out this year, figuring they would be similar. This shirt is too true for me. (Well, you need to make “cat” plural and also add “dog,” because Nyx eats a big chunk of my paycheck as well.) I would have a lot more disposable income if not for prescription cat food and medication (but the kitties are totally worth every penny I spend on them!).
Cat Desktop Organizer – Listed Value $12.99
I realized after the fact that I probably should’ve also taken a photo of this unassembled, but now that I have it together, I’m not taking it apart! Anyway, this is a fairly stiff cardboard material that was a little difficult to put together. However, that makes it more stable. This will be super useful in my office but I might decorate it with some glitter or something first.
Cat Magnets Set – Listed Value $14.99
The outer package cracked me up. Anyway, you can barely see a square inch of my refrigerator because of all the subscription box refrigerator magnets, but that’s OK. I will find places for these. Because they’re shaped like cats. Everything is better when it’s shaped like cats. (Seriously, though, these are strong enough to hold up at least an appointment reminder card or something of that nature.)
As usual, Angus got the most out of the toys. He really had a lot of fun with the pencil.
Madison shows a tooth!
Monkey was not in the mood to play. Sometimes that happens.
Sneaky was in a foul mood as well. Nothing to do with the box or its contents. But most of my cats are older and not always playful. Sneaky is usually angry unless she is eating…
Mr. Kitty was trying to get a look at what was going on elsewhere in the room so I took this opportunity to snap a picture of him with the bus toy.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $61 for the August 2017 (Crazy) Cat Lady Box. Although the values are mostly from the information card, that seems reasonable to me. I will definitely be using every item (my weekend wardrobe is pretty much exclusively cat-related shirts) and Angus had a ball with the toys.
