CatLadyBox November 2019 Review
CatLadyBox is always full of fun, cat-themed lifestyle items. Let’s see what was in store for November:
I love how the information cards have custom artwork every month. And the back has more information about the items in the box. This month’s theme relates to baking. The cat art on the front reminds me of Angus, not because of the coloration but because of the body type. Next month will be the annual holiday-themed box.
Mod Cats Melamine Bowl Set – Listed Value $24.99
These are dishwasher safe but not microwave safe. (All of this is specified on the bottom in raised text so no worries about forgetting.) They could be used to store cookies or leftovers (suggested by the box company) or even as kibble dishes that you could cover between feedings. I may use them to store craft supplies so they are out and seen instead of put away in a cupboard. The artwork on them matches some of the other artwork on various glassware CatLadyBox has sent in the past, which is nice.
Cat Potholders Set – Listed Value $16.99
These are large for potholders, but that can be handy, as I have burned myself in the past when using potholders that are too small. It’s also the kind of thing I never think to buy but often need more of as they do wear out.
Cat Head Jar Gripper – Listed Value $6.99
Here is another thing where I vaguely had an idea I needed a new one, because my old ones (some repurposed rubber coasters) are getting brittle, but never think to buy. It’s probably for the best that there was a card in the package with this, explaining what it was. But this will definitely get used. Also, Sneaky approves (see photo below).
Catnip Pie Cat Toy – Listed Value $5.99
This is the Crazy Cat Lady version of the box, so there are cat toys. This month, they were both crinkly catnip plushes, but they have different textures — this pie had some fuzzier parts. It was also somewhat smaller and a little better for the cats to toss around.
Furrrench Bread Catnip Kicker Toy – Listed Value $5.99
This is the other catnip toy for the month and it is quite large. But I will often catch Monkey playing with toys like this, usually in a room on the side of the house that gets sun in the morning (my cats track the sun around the house throughout the day), so I’ve put it in the home office for him to enjoy.
Here are some kitty pictures for you:
Angus’s new thing is to show interest in toys, but only from under the table. It probably didn’t help that Nyx (my Rottweiler, currently on extra prednisone) was right behind me the whole time.
Madison poses with the pie toy.
Monkey rubs his face on things.
Sneaky evaluates the jar opener.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $60.95 for the November 2019 (Crazy) CatLadyBox. The items this month were practical — hot pads wear out, so it is nice to have more, but it’s the kind of thing I often don’t think to buy. Jar openers start to get brittle so a new one is handy. The melamine containers could be used for all sorts of things including human food, kibbles, or craft supplies. And so forth.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Officially your subscription would start with December’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:
- Bowl set $16.40
- Potholders $11.15
- Jar gripper $4.59
- Pie toy $3.93
- Bread toy $3.93
