Cat Claws Club Subscription Box Review – June 2017
Cat Claws Club is a bimonthly 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!)
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. ($8.95)
Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your subscription list or wishlist!
Included was a brochure with more information about the products, along with a note from Cat Claws.
Refillable Beach Ball Toy – Value $3.95
My cats are not usually super fond of refillable toys, but Monkey, Angus, and Mr. Kitty all showed interest in this. Especially Angus.
Kitty Crinkle Ball – Value $2.29?
This has some mylar (?) bits to add textural interest. Angus had the most fun with this early on, but I suspect I will find Mr. Kitty chewing on it in a few days. (He does that with mylar toys.) I’m not sure this is the right toy, but it is very similar.
Fun Fancy Fish (2 count) – Value $4.99
Small toys with feathers are always a win around here. Pretty much everyone likes feathers.
Small Whale Scratcher – Value $21.95?
This was the most popular item in the box. Everyone loved it. Do note, these don’t have any kind of paper or lining on the bottom, so you’ll probably get catnip everywhere (this came with a little packet of catnip). This wasn’t on the Cat Claws site so I based the value on a very similar item.
Gratuitous cat photo time…
Just so you know, Angus claimed all of the toys from the box. Lots and lots of action shots here, where parts of his body are blurred out because he was moving so fast.
Madison didn’t want to come out from under the bed, so I lured him with treats until I could grab him, then I took him into the master bathroom for some photos. So you could actually see his face in the light for once!
Monkey sniffed the toys but he LOVED the scratcher. Most of my photos (not shown) are of him rubbing his chin on it.
Sneaky was in a bad mood. I think because I had just fed Mr. Kitty but I didn’t give her any food (I want him to gain weight, whereas she’s on a diet). She did show some interest in the scratcher.
Mr. Kitty was willing to sniff whatever I put up to his face. He spent some time checking out the scratcher, as well.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $34, give or take, for the June Cat Claws Club. That is pretty close to the cost of the box plus shipping. The big ticket item (the scratcher) was a huge hit with my older cats, and the toys were all claimed by Angus pretty much, but everyone got something out of it (and Angus likes the box it came in, too…), so this was a good month for us.
