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 editorial guidelines 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 Youksy.
The Breakdown – What’s Inside The February 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 a year old and he loves toys- I have yet to find a toy he won't play with.
Goose was actually *really* into this month's box, and was just demanding the camera's attention in all aspects. I can't believe he turns one next month!
You Had Me at Meow Shirt - Listed Value $22.99
These tee shirts appear with relative frequency in this subscription (I started reviewing this box in October, and this is my third shirt from the brand), but this is not a bad thing to me because I will always take cozy shirts I can lounge around in, and this shirt is really comfortable. The lilac color is something I would never personally pick out but I still had fun wearing it, and I like that these shirts have longer torsos because as human, I have a long torso and I hate when it feels like a shirt isn't fully covering my stomach. This shirt has a crew neck, and it's soft enough to wear to bed but I would just as easily wear it on a Saturday running errands.
Sweetheart Cat Necklace - Listed Value $22.99
I find this necklace to be charming. While I wouldn't pay $23 for it if I was shopping for a necklace at the mall, I like the peach enamel color and that the necklace and charm are 22k gold plated. It sits comfortably on my neck without being a choker, and I actually really like how the peach pops against the lilac shirt- it's giving spring vibes, and I'm here for it.
Here I am in the shirt and necklace.
Ombre Cats Wine Tumbler - Listed Value $27.99
This white wine tumbler continues with the colorful theme this box has going for it, and I am smitten. I love cups like these because, while they do the important job of keeping water or wine cold, they, more importantly, have a lid. Goose actually absolutely adores to drink out of human cups, so these days I am usually drinking beverages out of something with a lid (I have quite the Starbucks tumbler collection, so it isn't too hard). While I am not opposed to giving Goose his own cup of water, since Goose does not have hands he usually ends up knocking that glass over if I am not holding it the entire time. Since I am a flawed and distracted human, I need cups with lids or the carpet in my living room will be constantly soaked.
Prisma Cat Mat Bed - Listed Value $17.99
Oh man, this cat bed. I was excited to try it because it was a change from the typical cat toys this box usually sends, but I need to keep this bed in mind when the end of the year rolls around because Goose went absolutely crazy for it, and this might end up being one of my best subscription box finds in all of 2022. Goose already has two cat beds in my one-bedroom apartment (along with my bed, the couch, and his cat tree....), but this is the cat bed he has been laying on all of the time since it arrived on our doorstep.
I couldn't even unfold it without him sniffing at it, and he immediately recognized this cat bed as his and plopped down directly onto it, in the middle of my photography setup and all, and made himself quite comfortable. I was eventually able to persuade him that we should move the cat bed so that I could continue with photographing the box, but that was really only because he was feeling generous.
Fortune Cookie Catnip Toy - Listed Value $6.99
These catnip toys from Cat Lady Box hold up well to a playful kitten- I have some that are 5 months old at this point, and they're still going strong even if they're a bit raggedy around the edges now.
The pink ribbon that sticks out means it's easier for me to dangle this in front of him for playtime, but he did not wait long before taking it from my hands entirely.
Goose was really living his best life with his new fortune cookie toy and his new bed, but he was gracious enough to let me take a picture with him looking at the camera.
Also, the cat bed is now in the living room, and hes frequently laying on it while I am watching TV. That black toy you see by him actually came from our very first Crazy Cat Lady Box back in October, so like I said- these toys will hold up for a while, and Goose really seems to like them.
Value – Was This Box Worth It?
The Cost: $39.99 per month + free US shipping.
- Shirt: $22.99
- Necklace: $22.99
- Wine Tumbler: $27.99
- Cat Bed: $17.99
- Fortune CookiToy: $6.99
Everything in this box is unique to the subscription, so I have to go by listed values. The listed values add up to $98.95, which is more than double the cost of the box.
This is such a charming subscription box- I love that I get to share it with Goose, and I really love that the box features a good mix of practical items with a touch of whimsy. I loved the colorful items that were sent this month, but what really sent me over the moon was how much Goose loved this box- he's never been so involved in the unboxing process before, and he's laying on that cat bed right now as I type this review. While you take the listed values with a grain of salt, I absolutely feel like there was more than $39.99 of value in this box, and I think this is actually my favoite box ever sent by the Cat Lady Box team. If you have cats and like cat-themed things, I recommend checking this out, but keep in mind this is a box where value will be pretty subjective- if you're looking for fun cat-themed items you can enjoy around your home and share with your feline friend, you're going to see a lot more value in this box than someone who is going strictly off of listed values (or who desires brand name products in a box).
