Cat Claws Club Subscription Box Review – October 2018
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!)
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Cat Claws Club October 2018 Review
This subscription is pretty heavy on the toys and is often, but not always, holiday-themed. This is also one of the only cat subscriptions where you get scratch pads regularly. Let’s see what was in the box this month:
There’s usually a booklet with more information on the items.
Yarnimals Ghosts – Estimated Value $4.98 (buy 4 for $9.95)
We love Yarnimals. Specifically Madison does, though the other kitties are sometimes interested as well. I actually have to take them away when he is not supervised or he starts pulling them apart. These are hand-knit in Peru and I think they are adorable.
Spider Refillable Catnip Toy – Retail Value $5.95
I feel like I have seen this toy before, but I may be misremembering or it may have come in a different subscription box. Anyway, the refillable catnip toys are growing on my kitties and this comes with a packet of catnip for that first fill. (Actually there is quite a lot there and it will last awhile.) I think this one was also popular because of the dangly legs.
Imperial Cat Squished Pumpkin Combo Scratch ‘n Shape – Retail Value $37.74
This is pretty much the only cat subscription I get that sends scratchers any longer. These are a little more robust than the ones I buy on Amazon and they hold up longer as well. Plus, I think my cats get a kick out of the complex shapes; it’s more interesting than something that is just flat.
Angus sniffs the ghost.
Angus tries to bite the spider legs. (Sorry these shots are blurry – they’re action shots!)
Madison with the items from the box. He played with the ghosts a lot more after I put the camera away.
Monkey really, really wanted to lick catnip off these scratchers. (He will be out of the cone on the 13th or so of October. His eye infection is much better.)
Sneaky was interested but didn’t seem to want to show it. She’s like that.
Mr. Kitty was not in the best mood. He’s been rubbing his eye and trying to scratch it, so I had to put him back in the e-collar.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $48.67 for the October Cat Claws Club. This is a really high value for this box. Everything fit the Halloween theme and there was a nice variety of toy types. This was a good box for us.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, Cat Claws Club ships once every other month. Your first box would be December’s box if you signed up now. (But, the items are available for individual purchase from CatClaws.com.)
Value Breakdown: At $33.90 for the subscription plus shipping, you are paying approximately the following per item:
- Ghosts $3.47
- Spider $4.14
- Scratchers $26.29
