Cuddle Crate September 2017

3.3 overall rating

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.)

This review is of the Bronze Level Cat subscription for $28 a month.

The Subscription Box: Cuddle Crate (for cats)

The Cost: $28 per month for the bronze level (3-5 items for one type of pet); $39 a month for the silver level (6-8 items for up to two types of pet); $50 a month for the gold level (9+ items for three types of pets); save with longer subscriptions.

ACTIVE DEAL: Save 15% off any subscription!

The Products: Toys, treats, and supplies for your dog, cat, rabbit, guinea pig, gerbil, or hamster.

Ships to: U.S. (free shipping to the continental U.S.)

Good to know: You may have noticed there was no August review for this box. Cuddle Crate moved locations and had problems getting some shipments from vendors. The August box got delayed to the point where they decided to cancel it and refund subscribers’ money. They kept everyone up to date with emails and the refund did actually show up on my credit card not too long after they said it would, and without extra prompting from me.

They’ve moved away from an information card listing the items in the box and instead are directing you to a URL where you can look up more information about the items.

Cuddle Crate September 2017

Pet Zone Fly By Spinner Toy – Value $8.49

There’s a switch on the side of this and when you turn it on, the butterfly is supposed to go in circles. The battery was mostly dead in ours so it only moved halfheartedly.  I’m going to see about replacing it. However, Angus liked it a lot anyway, and Sneaky also showed interest. Madison mostly wanted to sniff the base for some reason.

Cuddle Crate September 2017

Ourpets Prickles – Value $4.29

This is a canvas toy stuffed with 100% catnip. It is a little heavy because of that. Monkey licked this quite a bit (he likes canvas…) and I’m pretty sure Angus has been playing with it, too.

Multipet Garfield Cat Toy – Value $3.99

This is a plush catnip toy. It’s small and light enough for the cats to toss around, but they mostly wanted to rub their faces on it (both Monkey and Sneaky did this, and even Mr. Kitty sniffed this one some).

Smarty Kat Mermouse – Value $8

This has FEATHERS so of course, it was popular. (Someone has been stalking cat toys in my bedroom and pulling the feathers out lately…) It also is made of a mixture of materials, so it is texturally interesting to the kitties. It is a kind of large toy but Angus has been tossing it around some. (I am pretty sure Angus does the most playing because he is just the youngest, by quite a lot.)

Cosmic Catnip (1 oz) – Value $8.82

It is time for a refresher of all my scratch pads (I have like 10 scattered throughout the house) so this came at a good time. I have received this brand of catnip in many subscription boxes in the past (and I have also purchased it on my own) and my cats seem to like it a lot.

Pure Balance Gourmet Cat Treats in Savory Chicken Recipe (3 oz) – Value $1.30?

This is a new brand for me. I am not sure *I* would call these “soft snacks,” but all four of my cats who can have them liked these quite a bit. (They are not the texture of semi-moist treats, but they are not as hard as Temptations, either.) They don’t have a strong smell and they come in a resealable bag.

This is a Walmart store brand of cat treats, I found out after some investigation. They don’t offer this particular item on their website, so I used a value from one of their other 3 ounce bags of treats.

Gratuitous cat photo time:

Angus has quickly adapted to eating treats with the camera out.

This butterfly is pretty cool…

…so let me knock it over.

Madison sniffs a treat.

He decides it’s acceptable!

Madison was oddly interested in the base of this toy.

Monkey tongue!

I love the look on his face here.

Monkey really wanted to rub his face on the Garfield toy.

It wouldn’t be a good review without a photo of Sneaky getting a treat.

She actually did like this, but I never got a good picture of her attacking it.

Poor Mr. Kitty, once again I’m pretty sure he was either annoyed or not clear on what was going on (or possibly both).

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $35 for the September Cuddle Crate for cats box. That is one of the better values I’ve seen for this subscription, and it exceeds the month-to-month cost of the box by a fair amount. I really liked the variety of toys and treats this month; I hadn’t seen any of these items except the Cosmic Catnip before (and that is something I occasionally buy for myself anyway).

My Mushu won’t touch the one cardboard scratcher we have even with catnip sprinkled on it! So I’ll be giving it away to my dad – I’m sure one of his 8 cats will love it. I think I spoiled Mushu with the fresh dried catnip from our farmer’s market, because he just doesn’t care if I pull out the store bought stuff. That being said he loves store bought catnip toys, so who knows! He might just be particular.
