CatLadyBox August 2020 Review

CatLadyBox is always full of fun, cat-themed lifestyle items. Let’s see what was in store for August:

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 has a “Cat Lady Life” theme.

 

Proud Cat Lady Shirt – Retail Value $19.99

Most months you will get a shirt. This is a good style for me. I am working from home and in need of new T-shirts because most of mine are old (like, from the early/mid 1990s when I was still in high school). This is a little loose (the smallest size available is S and I usually wear XS in shirts) so it is comfortable and it is pretty soft. I can even wear this out of the house on my one outing per week (to buy groceries) and/or exercise in it! These hold up pretty well to washing, in general. Also please note that I had some assistance with the photography and the cats made the shirt extra wrinkly.

 

Cat Lady Pint Glass Set – Retail Value $21.99

You will get a fair amount of drinkware with this subscription. I don’t think we have received pint glasses yet. These are hand wash only (to preserve the decorations). That makes them not super practical for drinks for me since I have a dishwasher, but there is no reason I can’t use them for other purposes, like holding pens or solder picks or paintbrushes or something of that nature. (I am setting up a craft room, eventually, where I will be able to keep such things out without fear of kitties knocking them over.)

 

Cat Lady Retro Keychain – Retail Value $9.99

You got to choose either black or plum for the keychain this month. I didn’t have a strong preference but I chose plum, for once, just because. (Most of the time I say “surprise me” but I figured it was worth picking once and making sure they put the correct color in the box — which they did.) This is meant to look like an old school hotel room key and yes, I remember those days, because I am over 40 and we did some road trips when I was a kid. We are always in need of keychains for various purposes and this one is large enough that it will be easy to find in my cavernous purse.

Cat Lady Box Vinyl Sticker – Retail Value $3.99

This is an extra item for the month. (Usually there are only five items.) I am not sure yet what I will put it on but I will hold on to it for some point in the future when I am going back in public again. (Actually, I have a tumbler for iced tea that I take into the office, when the office is actually open, which it hasn’t been since March. That would be a good candidate for where to put the sticker. Eventually!)

Cool Cat Catnip Toy – Retail Value $5.99

This apparently came in several colors; we received a gray one. It is a catnip plush and it is really soft and on the small-to-medium side, which is a good size for my cats. It was definitely good for a few chin rubs from Monkey and Madison, which is mostly what they do with catnip plushes these days.

Cat Lady Flag Wand Toy – Listed Value $5.99

You can see this out of the package below It is a wand toy with a LONG stick part. Sneaky loved it, as you might expect, but MADISON also wanted to play with it. I was so surprised. He has been a total stick in the mud lately — but he has had fun with this. (Sorry, Madison, you did great for pictures but you still have to go to the vet tomorrow for your annual vaccinations and bloodwork.)  (Bonus cat hair in the photo…)

Gratuitous cat photos:

 

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $67.94 for the August 2020 (Crazy) CatLadyBox. I did have to take one of the values from the information card, but that’s what the item will sell for once it is up in the CatLadyBox shop (the one not linked yet was not there as of the writing of this review). Maybe the glasses were a little repetitive, but I have a use in mind for them (plus I have been subscribing for a looooong time), and the shirt has already come in handy, and the toys were pretty well appreciated.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Officially your subscription would start with September’s box if you order before the cutoff on the 26th, 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 $11.77
  • Glass set $12.94
  • Keychain $5.88
  • Sticker $2.35
  • Plush toy $3.53
  • Wand toy $3.53

  1. What I loved most about this box were the pint glasses. They were actually made out of glass and not plastic. The shirt is so comfy and cute too.

  2. Oooor…you can hand wash the glasses if you want to use them? lol

  3. I just did a three month sub & I’m thrilled! The shirt is perfect for my new love of all things soft & roomy. The pint glasses are so nice! But yeah, hand washing. My cats went crazy for the flag toy- even the 3 year old jumps way up to catch it! The key chain just fell off my wad of keys- so I’m just going to make this the extra-key for the cat-sitter.

  4. This is one of my favorite shirts ever! It’s so soft and the fit is just right for me this time. Not too big or small (I order a Large in this sub, although I chose XL when they let us customize for the tank this summer, and it was purrfect). I also really love the keychain–cute, sturdy, and on trend! I have been subbing for a long time as well, and I am tired of receiving drinkware … HOWEVER, I really appreciate how they are always a different style and design. These pint glasses are nice and heavy. It’s definitely a bummer that they are hand wash only, but so many things I have already are, so what’s one more thing?

    Great review as always, and I’m glad Madison enjoyed that toy! My black boy loves the flag as well (my other cat, Lucy, is still obsessed with the Wiggly Worm — I even bought another).

  5. Love the Madison in play pictures!

  6. That key chain was seriously bad, but the cups were seriously amazing.

    • I think the keychain is so cute! It is kind of heavy, but I just try to carry my keys by it when walking to my car so it doesn’t jangle around too much. I also chose and received plum.

      • I found it ugly and cheap and a $9.99 price tag on it is laughable

    • I thought the key chain was the best thing in the box. Was it overvalued, certainly, but so was everything in that box.

  7. I had to cancel because of budget, but I always loved this box.

    • Same.
