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.)
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 Rachel Parker!
We also got a card reminding us that next month will be the subscription's special black cat box! I am so excited. My first CatLadyBox ever was the black cat box two years ago, and the sweatshirt that came inside it is still one of my all-time favorite subscription box items.
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.
Catnap Enthusiast Tee - Value $22.99
I have amassed quite the cat-themed tee collection, and yet they still manage to be fun new ones every month. I like these shirts because they’re a little thicker and don’t feel cheaply made, and they’re cut longer in the torso which I really like. I sacrificed two of my CatLadyBox shirts to turn into muscle tees this past month because it was so hot I couldn’t bear wearing sleeves but I still wanted to be comfortable, and these worked perfectly for that, too. I suspect the sleeves will stay on this one, as I love both the color purple and catnips.
Cat Ceramic Bowl Set - Value $18.99 (similar product linked)
These ceramic bowls feel really well made! I like that I can use them to feed myself or to feed Goose. When Goose is left alone for a few days because I am out of town I always like to leave out extra food in addition to his normal automatic feeder just to be on the safe side, and I am going to set these aside to use them for that purpose.
Cat Collage Scarf - Value $16.99
This scarf has quite the collage of cats. I don’t actually really wear scarves ever, so I’m a bit at a loss as to how to put this to good use. I do love that there’s an orange cat among the diverse cat population on this tee- it looks like Goose!
Now onto Goose’s favorite part.. the toys!
Cara the Crow Catnip Toy - Value $5.99
This crow toy is just adorable- I love its big eye. Its round avian body is perfect for being batted across the floor during playtime, too.
Fluffy Flames Firewood Catnip Toy - Value $4.99
I think this firewood flames catnip toy is really creative, with the orange and yellow feathers being the “flames” atop the catnip-stuffed logs. Goose loves to rub his face on feathery toys, so I knew this one would be a hit.
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.
- Shirt: $22.99
- Bowls: $18.99
- Scarf: $16.99
- Fluffy Flames Toy: $4.99
- Cara the Crow 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 $69.95 this month.
I can always count on CatLadyBox to produce a fun box. I wouldn't call this my favorite box ever from them, but I do quite like the quality of the bowls and the catnap tee. While you may not 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 September to receive the October Black Cat box.
