Cat Lady Box January 2019 Review
Cat Lady Box is always full of fun, cat-themed lifestyle items. Let’s see what was in store for January:
I love how the information cards have custom artwork every month. And the back has more information about the items in the box.
Ameowzing Shirt – Listed Value $19.99
This month’s wearable item is a t-shirt and it is a very soft and comfortable t-shirt. It’s a little big on me because I am an XS in shirt size and Cat Lady Box’s smallest offering is S, but that usually works out for me pretty well (like here, where the loose fit makes it perfect for weekend errands or wearing around the house).
Meow Knit Cap – Listed Value $19.99
This is very thick and warm. It was a bit much for the day I took photos (see below) when it was in the 50s or 60s, but this will be good for those few days a year when it is super cold out. I will get a kick out of wearing a hat that says “meow” when I am walking an 85 pound Rottweiler.
Here I am in the shirt and hat.
Meow Metal Wall Art – Listed Value $17.99
I am going to go rooting around in the garage for some nails tonight and hang this on the wall of my downstairs yoga/exercise room, where the theme is really “anything goes”; there are some other Cat Lady Box items on the walls down there as well. It is not as heavy as I expected it to be (which is good for something that’s going on the wall, it means I don’t have to find a stud).
Eskimeow Catnip Toy – Listed Value $4.99
Here is the first of the two toys for the month. I think this is pretty cute. I would say it is an average size for a Cat Lady Box toy (the toys are never super small in this box). Several of my cats wanted to snuggle with this little guy.
Meow Catnip Kicker – Listed Value $5.99
Here is the second toy for the month. It kind of matches the wall art. This is a bit larger and it is really an Angus item (especially if you turn it into an interactive toy by dragging it around in front of him on the floor).
Angus liked the kicker toy a lot.
Madison was a little possessive of this toy.
Monkey mostly wanted to rub his face on things.
Sneaky liked the tail on this toy.
Mr. Kitty is doing fine but he is taking a break from photos for awhile; he is a little crusty due to some eye issues and we are working on those with the veterinary ophthalmologist.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $68.95 for the January 2019 (Crazy) Cat Lady Box. That is a pretty good value for the box and, even if you think one or two values are inflated, I feel like you’re still getting your money’s worth. The shirt and hat are particularly useful for me (I can never have enough cat-themed shirts) but I thought everything was fun this month.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Officially your subscription would start with February’s box, but way back when I signed up, I was contacted to say there were a few of the current month’s box left over and asked if I’d like one of those. So it may be worth inquiring.
Value Breakdown: At a price of $39.99 for this box, you are paying approximately the following per item:
- Shirt $11.59
- Knitted cap $11.59
- Wall art $10.43
- Eskimeow toy $2.89
- Kicker toy $3.47
