Cat Lady Box October 2018 Review
Cat Lady Box is always full of fun, cat-themed lifestyle items. Let’s see what was in store for October:
I love how the information cards have custom artwork every month. The back has more information about the items in the box. This is the annual black cat-themed box.
Black Cat Coasters – Listed Value $14.99
These come along at a good time. I had some other black-cat-themed coasters on my desk at work but after 5 or 6 years, the coating on those are not looking so good, and now I can just replace them with these. These did have a bit of a chemical smell at first but I let them air out for awhile and now they’re fine.
Glitter Cat Ears – Listed Value $6.99
I am not much for dressing up for Halloween but something like this is OK for me. And a heck of a lot better than last year’s “costume,” which was a hospital gown (I had surgery last year on October 31). I think the glitter is a nice touch.
Black Cat Picture Frame – Listed Value $9.99
Of course a picture of a kitty will go in here. I just have to figure out which one and then go somewhere and print it (I don’t have a printer capable of that any longer but there is a drugstore nearby with a machine for that sort of thing).
Black Cats Long-Sleeved Shirt – Listed Value $26.99
Now that it is getting colder, it is time for long-sleeved shirts. This one is nice and subtle and will be good for weekend errands as the weather gets cooler. It fits reasonably well (maybe a little loose) and is soft and comfortable.
Black Cat Tail Toy – Listed Value $4.99
I am not sure what the tail on this thing is made of, but Angus liked it quite a lot. I would drag the head along the floor and he’d sink his claws into it.
Hand Knit Black Cat Catnip Toy – Listed Value $4.99
This is more of a Madison thing. We have received toys like this from Cat Claws Club in the past and Madison has really had a good time with them. I am not sure if it’s the texture or the catnip inside or the size or what, but I’m mostly just happy that Madison is enjoying toys.
Here are a few cat photos for you:
Angus wants to play under the table lately. (That’s part of my bead collection you see in the foreground.)
Madison makes friends with the yarn toy.
Monkey rubs his chin on the yarn toy.
Sneaky investigates the yarn toy.
Mr. Kitty snuggles with some new friends.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $68.94 for the October 2018 (Crazy) Cat Lady Box. That is a decent value (actually almost $30 over the month-to-month cost of the box) and the theme was a winner for us this month since we are fans of black cats around here! I know the shirt will get worn a lot and the other items are useful, as well, and my kitties like the toys.
