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.
Black Cat Ears – Listed Value $3.99
This was on the information card as a bonus item. It’s fun for Halloween, though maybe I will wear them earlier since I am having surgery on the morning of October 31. I have a lot of pairs of these now but oddly, they are all different. These fit my head reasonably well but I do have a small head.
Cat Camouflage Hat – Listed Value $21.99
If you look closely, you’ll see a lot of cats in the pattern here. I don’t wear hats like this often but they are useful when it is raining to keep water off my glasses (if you have ever worn glasses, you will understand how much I hate getting water on my glasses) and it was about time to retire my old one.
Here is the hat on, along with a prop.
Mysterious Black Cat Shirt – Listed Value $23.99
We haven’t gotten a shirt for a few months so it was about time to get one. This is black printed on a black shirt and it is kind of hard to see in this picture so there is another picture below. This has ¾ length sleeves and is pretty comfortable (I wore it all day doing grocery shopping and running other errands) and good for fall, which is finally starting in Georgia.
Here I am, wearing the shirt.
Black Cat Zipper Pouch – Listed Value $9.99
I get rid of makeup bags every few months as I just accumulate so many, so I don’t have a lot of spare zipper pouches around. I will keep this one. It is a good size to store chargers and cables for my Kindle Fire so I will be stuffing it in a bag to take to the hospital with me at the end of the month.
Yin Yang Catnip Toy – Listed Value $4.99
This is totally an Angus toy and he tossed it around quite a lot yesterday (*after* I took photos, of course). You can see it in size context in a few of the cat photos below. (It’s a catnip pillow covered in fluffy fabric.) I like how the items this month are all grayscale, and this fits right in.
Cat Camo Catnip Hat Toy – Listed Value $5.99
At first, I thought this was just another catnip toy. And then I discovered that it has an elastic strap on the bottom. So some of my cats got to wear it, too. Photos below, of course.
Angus with the yin yang toy.
Madison wearing the hat. (They are all licking their lips because I gave them wet food to wake them up for photos.)
Monkey making his standard hat-wearing face.
Sneaky was just mad at me that she had to share the wet food with the boys.
And I saved the best picture for last. I have never seen Mr. Kitty looking quite so pathetic and derpy as in this picture. Poor guy. He’s angry with me right now because I took him to the veterinary ophthalmologist and now he is on extra drops for his eye discharge.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $71 for the October 2017 (Crazy) Cat Lady Box. Although the values are from the information card, that seems reasonable to me. I will be wearing the shirt quite a lot and I have uses for the other items as well. Angus liked the yin yang toy and I got a good laugh putting the kitty hat on my older boys. This was a fun month for us.
