The 11 Best Cat Subscription Boxes – 2021 Readers’ Choice | MSA

Every year we ask you, our readers, to tell us your favorite subscription boxes. The results of the 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards are in! This list features our fellow subscription fanatics’ top choices for cat food, toys, and more.

Just like cats themselves, cat owners are a beautiful, mysterious breed—and proud of it! Our top hobby is pampering our pet with toys, cat treats, and their own unique style of loving. Cat subscription boxes and cat food subscriptions make the life’s work of treating our furry friends a cinch, providing monthly or bimonthly deliveries of toys, treats, and other feline-centric finds. And don’t forget National Pet Day on April 11 and National Cat Day on October 29! It’s the perfect occasion to treat your kitty if you aren’t already doing so regularly.

  1. Meowbox is the only good one on the list. Excellent customer service too!

  2. I thought this was a new post. Why are there comments from Sept and Dec 2019?

  3. Hi! Our (VetPet Box) cat boxes start at just $35! Can you please adjust this in your information? Thanks!

    • No problem, it’s updated now!

  4. When Cat Lady Box runs a sale in their shop, I stock up on gift items. The makeup brush set with handles shaped like cats is a priceless conversation piece, as is the set of kitchen ladles!

    • Have you checked out the deals in the VetPet Box shop!?

  5. Meowbox info is incorrect. They do not substitute toys for food even though it says they do. False advertising because they do not send catnip or collars, only 4 handmade cloth generic toys everytime! A theme every month and same cloth toys, that’s it. I recently was a new subscriber and only received a few toys in a box that they charged me almost $40 CAD for. No treat substitute. I quickly cancelled won’t be bamboozled again. Avoid!!

    • Hi Jennifer, we’re so sorry you weren’t happy with your box. We do substitute an extra toy for the treat when a customer selects ‘replace edible items’ at checkout. If you only received 4 toys we definitely made a mistake packing your box and sincerely apologize. If you contact [email protected] we’d love to make it up to you (and your kitties!).

  6. Meowbox–paws down!

  7. I subbed to the Cat Sticker Club a long time ago and never got anything, nor was I ever able to contact anyone in customer service about it. It’s super cheap so I didn’t mind taking the loss, but it was still a disappointment. I don’t know if it was just me or if other people had a bad experience with them too. I guess not since it’s on the list!

    • Hi Lindsay!

      I’m so sorry this was your experience. I checked our emails from that time and don’t see anything from you so something must have wound up in spam or something. We’re always happy to reimburse for missing stickers and resend them. Please feel free to email us for missed stickers.

      Thanks!

  8. I wish the sept cat lady box was still available! Surprised it sold out already

  9. Un the subject of cats, Pusheen spoiler #2 is out

  10. Cuddle Crate is still around.

    However, Whiskerbox seems to be gone. They still have a signup page but haven’t posted to social media for months and the last few boxes they sent me to review were really random.

    • Thanks, Ragan! I tried the link for Cuddle Crate and it looks like their site is down – do you know of a new address for them?

      • I clicked the link earlier when I posted that comment and again just now and it is working for me just fine.

      • FYI I got an email that Cuddle Crate was stopping their subscriptions a few months ago but the signup page is still there. I’d hold off on that one. I think Whiskerbox is gone now, too. I haven’t received it to review in a long while and most of the blog reviews out there are pretty dated at this point.

      • Huh, thanks. We looked at both those websites today and thought they were just temporarily sold out, but perhaps not.
