Cat Claws Club Subscription Box Review – February 2017
Cat Claws Club is a bi-monthly subscription box for cats filled with lots of toys, treats, and other surprises. (They just use whatever box will fit the items, so it varies from month to month, but it allows for some unusual item shapes, which can be fun!)
I had a “helper” for this photo session. And oh, how helpful she was!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: Cat Claws Club
The Cost: $33.90 a box ($24.95 subscription price + $8.95 shipping)
The Products: Lots of cat items, mostly toys, including some exclusive and/or new items.
Good to know: Although PayPal checkout shows as an option for this subscription, you can’t actually pay for the subscription with PayPal. I checked out that way the first time and they contacted me, processed a PayPal refund, and I had to resubscribe with a credit card number.
Ships to: U.S.

Included was a brochure with more information about the products.
Valentine Print Sofa Scratcher – Value $24.95
Cat Claws offers quite the variety of decorative scratchers on their site. They are pretty heavy duty and hold up for a long time, although there’s not a lining on the bottom, so catnip can fall through. I solve this by putting them in boxes or on top of blankets, as you will see below. These last for a very long time and so far, my cats like this one quite a bit.
Note: this design is exclusive to the subscription box so I have linked to an item with the same shape and several alternate patterns.
Heartstrings Refillable Catnip Toy – Value $3.99
My cats are not super big on refillable toys (refillable toys tend to be larger, which makes them a bit less popular with my crew), although Angus did have fun with this Angus likes pretty much any toy, which greatly increases the value of all cat subscription boxes!
Atomic Noisemaker Toy – Value $5.99?
This is a little UFO-shaped toy that does make noise if it is batted around. This size of the toy is more popular with the cats, as a group.
I can’t find this for retail sale online (only on a wholesale site that won’t let me see the price without logging in) so the value is an estimate based on similar noise-making toys.
Imperial Cat Bird ‘n Ball Catnip Toys – Value $4.95
I got these from another box last month but both were well-loved last month and these new ones are also popular (with more than just Angus).
I got lots of cat photos this time.
So, Angus took up residence in the box most of the evening. There may have been some spats between Angus and Monkey over occupancy of the box…
Angus had a good old time with this bird toy, even when I wasn’t holding it. He will play with pretty much anything I give him.
Madison is still not sure what he thinks of Angus, so he keeps his distance.
Monkey likes the box a lot. Boxes are kind of his thing lately.
Although he did leave it alone long enough to eat some of the catnip I put on the scratcher.
Sneaky really liked the scratcher, although she did take some time to investigate some of the toys as well.
Mr. Kitty with his eyes open. They look funky due to corneal damage from his various eye conditions. If you were wondering, Mr. Kitty, despite being twelve and a half years old and nearly blind and also declawed (the other four all have their claws), has retained his dominant position in the cat hierarchy in my household.
Mr. Kitty and Sneaky investigate the scratcher. I can’t call it a staring contest because I’m pretty sure Mr. Kitty can’t see that far.
Mr. Kitty investigates a toy. (Yes, his left eye looks large. Yes, the veterinary ophthalmologist is well aware of this.)
Mr. Kitty with the spaceship toy. He’s doing quite well after his eye surgery last week (on his right eye, to remove his corneal sequestrum). And he’s happy to be out of his lampshade collar, too!
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $39.88 for the February Cat Claws Club. That is above the cost of the box plus shipping, which is wonderful for a cat subscription box. If you like getting exclusive items, the scratcher is a nice find, and pretty much everything (including the box, itself) was interesting to my cats, so this month was a total win for us.
