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.

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 My Fairy Realm!

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.

Totally Cats Shirt - Value $22.99

Every month you can expect a clothing item in your subscription, and I have amassed quite the cat tee shirt collection because of it. I don’t mind though- these are comfortable shirts cut longer in the torso and are great to sleep, lounge, exercise, or run errands in. This month’s says “totally cats” and gives off strong 90’s television vibes.

Cool Cat Sunglasses - Retail Value $11.99


This a simple pair of black sunglasses with purple arms. On the side of the right arm is the outline of four different cats, and the top left of the frame says “cat lady” in small cursive writing.  These aren’t going to replace your more expensive sunnies, but they are handy to keep stored in a purse or vehicle when you unexpectedly need a pair.

Ameowzing Water Bottle - Retail Value $24.99

This water bottle does a great job of embracing the fun 90’s theme this box has going on- I like that among the colorful squiggles you get scattered outlines of cats, but this isn’t an in-your-face cat item. It holds 16 ounces of liquid and is made with stainless steel.

Electric Leopard 10-Color Pen - Retail Value $5.99

I remember being in elementary school and thinking pens like this were the bee's knees. I was also a huge fan of Lisa Frank, and this colorful leopard-print pen embraces both of those. I wouldn’t reach for this if I was going to be writing for an extended period of time, but it’s great for jotting down quick notes.

Here is what the ink colors look like.

Retro Phone Catnip Toy - Value $5.99

This toy is designed to be a replica of an old telephone- most likely the kind that would have a curly cord coming out of it.


This was the toy Goose was making a beeline for as I unboxed the items- I think he really likes the feather.

Pawty Mix Catnip Toy - Value $4.99

This cute mixtape catnip toy is soft and the perfect size to be batted around my living room floor.

Can you see the wheels turning in Goose’s head about how he’s going to play with his new toys?

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.

ACTIVE DEAL: 20% off your first box

Value Breakdown:

  • Shirt: $22.99
  • Sunglasses: $11.99
  • Water Bottle: $24.99
  • 10 Color Pen: $5.99
  • Pawty Mix Toy: $4.99
  • Phone 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 $76.94 this month.

Key Takeaways

I can always count on CatLadyBox to produce a fun box- they get really creative with their themes. I wouldn’t call this my favorite box ever from this subscription, but I really loved the theme of the box. The pen brought back a lot of nostalgia for me, and it’s always handy to have extra water bottles on hand. 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 August to receive the September 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.
