CatLadyBox September 2020 Review
CatLadyBox is always full of fun, cat-themed lifestyle items. Let’s see what was in store for September:
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 "Cozy Cats" theme. There was also a card letting us know next month is CatLadyBox's annual black cats theme. Yay, a whole theme for Madison!
On to the items:
Cozy Cats Shirt - Retail Value $19.99
This is super soft and comfortable. It's still pretty warm where I live and short sleeves are still appropriate (or this can always be paired with one of the hoodies or zip-up jackets from past years of CatLadyBox!). I wore this for like 23 hours straight (I'm super lazy during work from home and social distancing) and it felt great the whole time. Also it seems to have taken at least the first wash well.
Cozy Cat Rope Basket - Retail Value $19.99
I linked to a black one because the white one wasn't in the CatLadyBox shop. This is more of a decorative basket than a functional basket because the handles are the cat's ears and thus not directly across from one another. However, if you have some items you want to keep together in one place this would be useful. I'd say I could put all my cat toys in it but since I have been reviewing cat subscription boxes for like six years I think you know that I have enough cat toys to fill at least two bathtubs, if not more. Anyway, perhaps this would be a more attractive storage location for my cats' daily meat squares than the box they came in.
Counting Cats Pillowcase Set - Retail Value $17.99
You know that most sheet sets come with two pillowcases but I have 5 or 6 pillows on my bed so I am always in need of extra pillowcases. These are adorable and they feel nice and smooth against the skin as well. These are definitely going into the rotation.
Fuzzy Squirrel Catnip Toy - Retail Value $4.99
This little guy is super cute. I like that he's small as my cats are usually more interested in smaller toys. Their favorite part was his tail, which is not the least bit surprising. You can see the tail in some of the cat pictures below.
Catnip Fall Leaf Toy - Retail Value $5.99
If you're wondering about the price tag, this is handmade exclusively for CatLadyBox, not mass-produced. It is from Crochet Kitty; you can check out some of their other items here. This is made in the US with eco-friendly materials. It's small and rather flat so Madison had a good time rolling on top of it. Monkey was more of a chin rubber with this one.
Gratuitous cat photos:
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $68.95 for the September 2020 (Crazy) CatLadyBox. Even if you think one or more values are inflated, that's still well over the cost of the box on a month-to-month basis. I thought all the items were w0nderful for fall and arrived early enough to be used in fall. It's also nice to receive items useful around the house because I am certainly not going anywhere for the next few months (or longer). My cats liked the toys and the shirt material was super comfortable. This was a good box for us.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Officially your subscription would start with October'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 $11.59
- Rope basket $11.59
