Cuddle Crate Cat Box Review + Coupon – January 2017
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.

SPOT Jute and Feather Sack – Value $5.68
This has an interesting texture as well as feathers. Monkey did lick it quite a bit. But never when the camera was pointed at him.
Kong Cuteseas Seahorse (small) – Value $4.85
I have to admit, I am confused by the inclusion of this toy. It is cute and well-made, but cat toys typically don’t say “Squeaks” on them because cats really aren’t able to make toys squeak the same way that dogs are.
Well. Apparently, this is a dog toy. The cats didn’t show a lot of interest but, then, this doesn’t have any catnip. I may try spraying it with catnip spray and see if that helps.
SPOT Hug ‘n Kick (10”) – Value $6.36
This is huge. I have caught New Guy playing with wrestler-type toys in the past, though he was cowering under the bed during this photo session. But I have hopes that I now have an enthusiast for this type of toy!
Redbarn Naturals Freeze Dried Chicken (0.75 oz) – Value $3.99
Sneaky thought this was great and it at least rated a sniff from the others (of course Mr. Kitty can’t have it). I like that it only has a single ingredient.
SPOT Skinneeez – Value $2.90
This is a small catnip toy with an interesting tail so it was one of the more popular items from this box. This is a good size for New Guy, especially.
Madison picked this up and ran off with it. I hope he ate it rather than leaving it under the furniture somewhere…
Monkey was willing to sniff the treat, but he didn’t eat it. He is not food-motivated. (Don’t worry. Sneaky ate it.)
Sneaky was so enthusiastic about these treats, I couldn’t even get a good picture…
Mr. Kitty was not in a good mood. He had eye surgery the day I wrote this. He seems to be doing well but he was having a bit of discomfort the day I took these so I just let him sleep.
This was New Guy’s first day out of isolation and he spent it hiding under the bed. (We think he has a food allergy because he keeps scratching under his eye. We are in the process of changing his food.) He is now out and about, for what it’s worth, and has made friends with Monkey. We decided to keep the name from the rescue group so he will now be known as “Angus” in my reviews.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $23.78 for the January Cuddle Crate for cats box. That is pretty low considering the month-to-month cost of the box, especially since one of the toys is a dog toy that appears to have been included in error. (Cuddle Crate does offer dog subscriptions and multi-pet subscriptions as well.) Our MSA15 coupon will bring the cost of the box down and if you have multiple types of pets (including some small animals) and don’t want to be overwhelmed with items from separate boxes for each of them, there may be some value in the multi-pet option. But, I would like to see at least one more item in the cat version to increase the value a bit.
