CatLadyBox is a monthly subscription box for cat ladies (or anyone who is crazy about cats)! The $34.99 per month CatLadyBox has 2-3 cat-themed items – wearables, items for the home, books, etc., while the $39.99 per month Crazy CatLadyBox contains everything from the CatLadyBox plus a few items just for cats.

This is a review of the Crazy CatLadyBox.

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 CatLadyBox, you'll also get a few treats for your furbaby, too.

 

This box does come with an info sheet, and the other side features custom artwork. This month's artist is IwaMaltiwa!

The Breakdown – What’s Inside This 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 two years old and he loves toys—I have yet to find a toy he won't play with.

 

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

Everything is Ameowzing Tote Bag - Value $19.99

Honestly, there is no such thing as too many tote bags in our household. I keep reusable bags tucked in both of our vehicles so they're always handy for impromptu grocery stops and have a bigger collection just waiting for when we make a big Costco or Target run. This came in super handy just moving products from one room in our apartment to another, as I had photographed my Bath Bevy subscription and was able to use this bag to neatly carry everything to my bathroom to start testing it all out. It's not the sturdiest material so I wouldn't overload it (this is for people like my partner, who put a gallon of milk in a tote bag along with loads of other stuff and then had the bag handle break), but it's definitely functional for reasonable tasks.

"Cat Ladies are Crazy Cool" Tee -  Value $22.99

 

I have developed an extensive CatLady box tee shirt collection after being a reviewer of the box for almost two years, but I believe this is the first time we've gotten one in this design! I really like the turquoise blue color, and the front of it has a simple white cat printed on the left breast- it's a much more subdued than what we typically see. On the back, though, we have the words "cat ladies are crazy cool" printed in an oversize groovy font. I think this is a fun shirt overall, and it's being added to the collection!

Cat Can Cooler - Value $8.99

I know many people probably have plenty of koozies laying around, but we just moved so I can tell you as someone who packed their entire home that we actually... don't. This will definitely be handy to have around on the rare occasion we enjoy a drink out of a can! I like the subtle black and tan design, too- I feel like it's a very gender-neutral design.

"Treat Cats with Kindness" License Plate Frame - Value $15.99

It's always funny when you learn random facts about your partner- I was sitting down to type this review and the fiance was sitting next to me playing a video game, and when I started to type about this license plate frame I learned that my partner of over three years actually "despises" all license plate frames of any kind. That was just the funniest thing to me- "despise" is just a strong word to use over something as innocuous as license plate frames! This one has a fun pink and orange tie-dye effect against a black background, so it is sure to provide a pop of color.

Happy Earth Catnip Toy -  Value $4.99

This catnip-filled toy is a charming globe with a smiling earth face on it. Goose loves balls he can bat around, so this has already gotten quite a bit of play and is fraying at one of the seams- this is my mistake from ripping out the tag instead of using scissors.

Sunny Sunflower Catnip Toy - Value $5.99

This cute sunflower is exactly the kind of toy Goose typically likes to rub his head against, and I just think it is too cute.

 

I placed both of the toys on the windowsill and waited to see which one caught Goose's interest.

The happy earth was the ultimate winner!

Value – Was This Box Worth It?

The Cost: $39.99 per month (with a 6-month plan -- month to month is $43.99) + free US shipping.

Value Breakdown:

  • Bag: $19.99
  • Shirt: $22.99
  • Can Cooler: $8.99
  • License Plate Frame: $15.99
  • Happy Earth Toy: $4.99
  • Sunflower Toy: $5.99

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 CatLadyBox shop!). The values add up to $78.94 this month.

Key Takeaways

I can always count on CatLadyBox to produce a fun box, and that held true this month! My favorite items were the shirt and the tote bag, and Goose particularly liked the happy earth toy and the plastic that was around the license plate frame. This is such a fun subscription box to get and experience with your pet, and I appreciate the kind and thoughtful folks that are behind the box. While you won't love every single thing 100% of the time, I find myself very happy with the mix of whimsy and practical goods that arrive on my doorstep, all with a fun cat theme. 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 CatLadyBox 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 CatLadyBox, which will come with the same products as the Crazy CatLadyBox sans the cat toys.

Can I still get this box if I sign up today? No. Sign up before the end of July to receive the August 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.
