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 Amy Beth Payne.
The Breakdown – What’s Inside The July 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 a year old and he loves toys—I have yet to find a toy he won't play with.
I can't believe how big Goose has gotten—he turned one on April 5th! He loves to hang out with my packages as I am in the process of unboxing and photographing them.
Feline Purralysis Shirt - Listed Value $19.99
If you follow my Cat Lady Box reviews you know that I’m a big fan of the tee shirts sent in this box- they’re super soft, and they’re cut a tad longer in the torso than your typical tee which makes me feel better when I wear it. This crew-neck is a lovely lavender shade of purple, and I love the dictionary definition of “feline purralysis”- it’s a condition I’m afflicted with frequently (though Goose prefers to lay on top of my chest near my neck rather than in my lap).
Cute Woven Cat Basket - Listed Value $18.99
This woven basket is so simple, but I love the cat ears that give it that little hint of feline design I can expect from this box. It’s a roomy basket, too- I can store plenty of beauty products or use it as a place to put a bunch of Goose’s various toys and then present them to him like a cat toy buffet.
Here he is investigating the toys-in-the-basket situation.
Cat Coin Bank - Listed Value $14.99
I currently keep my spare change in a coin purse, and I can’t tell you how genuinely pleased I was to see a coin bank inside this month’s box- I’ve already gotten to work using this to store the loose change I have scattered around my apartment! I love that this kitty bank has a stopper at the bottom, so I don’t have to break it to access what I end up saving in it when I decide to cash in.
Wild Thing Catnip Bow Tie Toy - Listed Value $4.99
There are some toys that have just the right texture that Goose loves to lick, and this soft fuzzy bow tie is made with that exact material.
World’s Best Cat Mug Catnip Toy - Listed Value $4.99
I thought this mug cat toy was so cute and loved holding it by the tiny handle when I held it out to Goose. He gave it a cursory sniff, but was much more invested in the bow tie.
When I presented them side by side to them, Goose decided the bow tie needed to be taken to a safe distance away from me.
His look is just screaming to me “I stand by my decision, too.” Anyone else see it?
Value – Was This Box Worth It?
The Cost: $39.99 per month + free US shipping.

- Coin Bank: $14.99
- Bow Tie Toy: $4.99

Everything in this box is unique to the subscription, so I have to go by listed values. The listed values add up to $63.95.
This subscription just continues to send creative, practical items that I honestly find quite delightfulI 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 think my favorite item this month is the kitty coin bank, but I have already worn the shirt and Goose has be putting those toys to good use. While you should take the listed values with a grain of salt, I absolutely feel like there was more than $39.99 of value in this box. If you have cats and/or like cat-themed things, I recommend checking this subscription box out. 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).
