Cuddle Crate Cat Box Review + Coupon – March 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.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Petstages Kitty Cuddle Pal – Value $5.99
This has a removable inner bag with buckwheat in it. You can put the toy in the microwave to heat it up (just make sure it is not too hot before giving to your kitty; I recommend no more than 30 seconds at a time). And you know? The cats really were interested in this (Madison got a bit possessive).
KONG Naturals Straw Cylinder with Feathers – Value $3.37
Angus is a huge fan of feathers and Monkey likes straw toys so this was a win. The feathers seem pretty securely attached. You may want to keep an eye on this, though, as it doesn’t seem like it would be fun to step on in bare feet.
KONG Cat Cozie Kickeroo – Value $6.29
Angus likes kicker toys but he prefers the smaller ones like this to some of the larger ones we get. This one also seems pretty well made. (He was sleepy when I took photos so I didn’t get any action shots, though.)
Redbarn Naturals Freeze Dried Turkey (0.75 oz) – Value $3.99
Even though Sneaky is on a diet, I let her have a few of these. She thought they were great. Monkey, surprisingly, was also a big fan. I like that they just have one ingredient – freeze-dried turkey.
SPOT Atomic Rubber Bouncing Balls (2 pack) – Value $4.99
Sneaky, of course, bit these, because she likes to bite rubber. But in terms of play, they are more of an Angus/Monkey item, since both of them like small ball toys (actually, Angus and Monkey have basically the same personality although Angus is a bit more playful since he is quite a lot younger).
Lots of gratuitous cat photos this month:
Angus checks out the treats and some of the toys from this month’s box. He was a little sleepy this day. (And yes, I know about the eye discharge. Kitty herpes is kind of a problem at my house right now.)
Madison and Angus actually hung out in the bedroom all afternoon on the day I took these pictures. Madison is slowly warming up to Angus – as long as Angus doesn’t try to get the microwaveable toy away from him.
Monkey actually wanted the treats this month, which was a surprise (he is not very food-motivated). He and Sneaky also enjoyed sniffing the microwaveable toy. But the second picture is my favorite.
Sneaky was very interested in the treats. (Sadly, her asthma has been pretty bad lately so she is going on a diet since she is pretty chunky.) I also managed to get her to bite one of the rubber balls.
Mr. Kitty is cool with pictures as long as I don’t make him move out of his favorite spot. And hey, open eyes! (For reference, the one eye looks big due to corneal damage and it will probably never get better. That eye is most likely blind, as well, but he can still see some out of the other eye.)
Verdict: I calculated a value of $24.63 for the March Cuddle Crate for cats box. That is somewhat below the month-to-month cost of the box, but some of the values above are sale prices from Chewy.com and elsewhere, and the actual MSRP is probably closer to $30. At any rate, everything in the box was enjoyed by at least one of my cats, with the microwaveable buckwheat pillow toy being the clear favorite for the month.
