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.)

First Impressions


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 Krista Woodcock May.

Goose was really into investigating what was in this month's box.

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 a year old and he loves toys—I have yet to find a toy he won't play with.


Goose turns two in April, and he weighs in at thirteen pounds! He's not overweight though, per his vet- he is just a proportionally big boy.

Must Love Cats Shirt - Retail Value $22.99

I’m a big fan of the shirts Cat Lady Box sends and this one is no exception- it’s cut long in the torso for a comfortable fit, and I like the orange and pink cat design printed on the beige background. The little hearts along with the "must love cats" printed right in the middle is very on brand with how I feel about cats, too.

I Hope You Like Cats Doormat - Retail Value $15.99


Cat Lady Box does a killer job of sending cute items that are also practical- what other subscription box do you know of that has sent a doormat? I love that this is a more neutral color pattern compared to the shirt in a mix of deep brown and black (which is a good idea considering I'm about to be rubbing my shoes into it on a regular basis), and I also like that it embraces the love of cats in a more subdued way- just with the words printed in the bottom left corner.

I do plan on replacing my existing doormat with this one, but honestly Goose has been enjoying laying on top of it so I'm going to let him continue to do that for a little bit longer.

Watercolor Cats Zip Pouch - Retail Value $12.99


This pouch features the cute faces of different kitties in watercolors, and the pouch is roomy enough to fit quite a few pens and pencils or makeup brushes, your phone, or other odds and ends. It measures 9" wide by 6.5" tall and features a copper zipper pull that adds a nice touch.

Kitty Keychain Card Wallet - Retail Value $9.99


I have been traveling quite a bit over the past year due to my fiancé being on active duty the next state over, so I am a big fan of anything that helps to make traveling more streamlined and less bulky. This kitty keychain is 5" wide x 3.5" tall, and I like that I can clip it to the inside of my purse or travel backpack to keep cards and cash easily accessible without dealing with the bulk of a full wallet.

Wacky Wonky Mouse - Retail Value $4.99

I thought this was going to be Goose's favorite toy in the box because it's the one he went straight to when I was photographing the box!

He immediately had to investigate and pick up our little wonky mouse friend. After the unboxing experience though, he was much more into the doormat and cozy slipper toy.

Cozy Slipper Catnip Toy - Retail Value $5.99

This cute slipper features a leopard print design on a cozy fabric that is perfect for Goose to snuggle up against.


He definitely liked laying up against it, and looked cute while doing it.

I was also able to get a shot of Goose playing with the lion toy from last month's box, so I wanted to include that too.

Value – Was This Box Worth It?

The Cost: $39.99 per month + free US shipping.

ACTIVE DEAL: 20% off your first box

Value Breakdown: 

  • Shirt: $22.99
  • Doormat: $15.99
  • Pouch: $12.99
  • Keychain Wallet: $9.99
  • Slipper Toy: $5.99
  • Mouse Toy: $4.99

Everything in this box is bespoke to the subscription, so I have to go by listed values (though some of the products will be available for sale in the Cat Lady shop!). The values add up to $72.94 this month.

Key Takeaways

I love my Cat Lady Box Subscription, and I thought the February box was great. I loved the shirt, the doormat was a pleasant surprise that will get put to great use, and both the pouch and keychain are small, practical items I will be able to use while also showing off my love of cats. Goose enjoyed the toys (and doormat) too! 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).

Other Things You Should Know

Where does the Cat Lady Box ship to? The US (free to the lower 48, an additional fee for Alaska or Hawaii), the UK, and Canada.

Do I have to have a cat to enjoy this subscription? Nope! If you love cats but don't have one of your own, that doesn't mean you have to miss out on the fun- you can subscribe to the Cat Lady Box, which will come with the same products as the Crazy Cat Lady Box sans the cat toys.

Can I still get this box if I sign up today? No, sign up before the end of February to receive the March box.

I am a staunch believer that pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza and when I’m not working as a family law attorney I enjoy hiking the Louisiana trails (alligator sightings are a favorite!) or relaxing with Duchess, my cat. I’m a sucker for anything labeled a mystery box and I’ve never met a bath bomb I didn’t like.

This was one of my favorite months ever! I was super impressed that they sent a doormat! My cats picked the slipper as their favorite, too. Goose is so cute!
