Cat Lady Box is a monthly subscription box for cat ladies (or anyone who is crazy about cats)! The $34.99 per month Cat Lady Box has 2-3 cat-themed items – wearables, items for the home, books, etc, while the $39.99 per month Crazy Cat Lady Box contains everything from the Cat Lady Box plus a few items just for cats.
This is a review of the Crazy Cat Lady Box.
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
As soon as the box arrives, you know your cat-loving heart is in for a good time. Everything arrives in a brown cardboard box with a black cat silhouette on it. Once you open it up, you can expect to find anything from cat-themed jewelry, clothes, home decor, and more. If you subscribe to the Crazy Cat Lady box, you'll also get a few treats for your furbaby, too.
This box does come with an info sheet, and each month they feature custom artwork. This month's artist was Karen Obuhanych!
The Breakdown – What’s Inside The October Crazy Cat Lady Box
First, let's meet the cat that will be helping me to review this box. If you've been reading my MSA reviews for a while, you may remember my old cat, Duchess. Duchess is no longer here with me, and after a few months, I felt ready to get another cat companion. Meet Sir Goose! I adopted him when he was one month and twenty-two days old, and he was 2.2 pounds. Now he is almost eight months old, and he loves toys- I have yet to find a toy he won't play with. Now, let's dive into my October box from Crazy Cat Lady!
Black Cats Rule Sweatshirt - Listed Value $28.99
I was so excited for the October box when I saw this was a spoiled item- I love everything soft and cozy about these cooler months, and this looked like such an awesome sweater to lounge around in with a fun black cat wearing a crown motif. I ordered my normal size, and unfortunately, this sweater was tight on me in the chest and shoulders that made it a little uncomfortable to wear. This is lined with soft, cozy fleece, and I think that fleece lining is what made this a less than purr-fect fit. Luckily, the Cat Lady Box is pretty size-inclusive- they go up to a size 5x, so I can always adjust my size to a bigger one for future boxes.
Ombre Black Cat Concrete Planter - Listed Value $18.99
I love this planter. I can't actually keep any plants alive, but this small size is actually great to be repurposed as a pen or makeup brush holder. If you can keep plants alive, this has a nice weight to it thanks to the cement it is made out of, and it has a drainage hole at the bottom, too. I love the cute black cat ears that stick out of the mouth of the planter- every time I see this on my shelf, it makes me smile.
I actually realized this was the perfect size to hold my travel vials of perfume, so that is currently what I am using it for!
Black Cat Puff Keychain - Listed Value $9.99
You may think I am crazy (I am reviewing the Crazy Cat Lady version of this subscription box), but this keychain actually really gives me Kate Spade Vibes. I don't have any of the purses from Kate Spade that were cat-themed (like this one or this one), but I always thought they were adorable. This keychain is equally adorable, showing the ears, whiskers, and nose of a black cat before turning into a soft, puffy ball.
Note- If you subscribe to just the Cat Lady Box, you won't receive the next two cat toys I review.
Meowgical Feline Frog Catnip Toy - Listed Value $5.99
I wasn't actually sure what I was looking at when I first saw this toy- thankfully, it had a tag to help me realize this catnip-filled cat toy is actually a black cat wearing a (removable) frog costume. How cute is that? It feels perfectly timed for the spooky season!
Goose didn't love this as much as he loved the other toy, but he still played with it for a little bit. I have no doubt this will eventually be dragged under the bed to his lair with the rest of his toys.
Goose also has a costume, but it's not a frog- it's a shark! (Don't worry- as soon as the photo was snapped he went back to being a regular Goose-err, cat).
Flappy Bat Cat Catnip Toy - Listed Value $5.99
This was a really fun toy. The body of the bat is stuffed with catnip, and the thin wings are made of black felt. I loved the wings because it allowed me to dangle the toy in front of Goose and play tug of war with him.
Goose gave his stamp of approval, too! He actually made quick work of those felt bat wings, but the body of the bat is much more durable and has been getting batted around my living room floor.
Value – Was This Box Worth It?
The Cost: $39.99 per month + free US shipping.
- Sweatshirt: $28.99
- Planter: $18.99
- Keychain: $9.99
- Feline Frog Toy: $5.99
- Bat Toy: $5.99
Everything in this box is unique to the subscription, so I have to go by listed values. The listed values add up to $69.95, which is about $30 more than the cost of the box.
This was my first month trying the Crazy Cat Lady Box, and it really made me smile. I love the sweatshirt design so I am a little bummed it doesn't fit perfectly, but that is the way the cookie crumbles sometimes (and I can use that for extra motivation during my Noom journey). I was really delighted by the planter sent, too- it's both charming and really practical, even if I don't plan on using it for actual plants. It was really fun to be able to share this subscription box with Goose, and I love being able to look forward to the monthly treat exploring this box with him.
