June 2015 CatLadyBox Review

I've been hesitant to jump on the subscription box bandwagon. I'm not a huge fan of surprises, so I haven't been crazy about the idea of paying for something upfront, having no idea what I was going to end up with.

That all changed when I heard about my friend Dorian Wagner's brilliant idea of a CatLadyBox. It's a surefire thing that I will love *anything* cat-related and I eagerly signed up. When an email arrived with my FedEx tracking number, I stalked it on a daily basis.

On Friday morning this happened:


Truffles was super excited too!


Check out the adorable artwork on the card created by Artist BZTAT. The back of the card contains info about all of the featured items in the box:


What was in the box? A super cute Living in the Meow Canvas Tote. Living in the Meow partners with organizations like the Cat Town Cafe to increase rescue adoptions through donations and merchandise sales. And, all of their products are made in the USA.


"Crazy Cat Lady" Hand-Stamped Aluminum Cuff created exclusively for CatLadyBox  by DesignsbyMarlayna. It's lightweight and easily adjustable (which is a really good thing because my wrist is super small and bracelets usually fall right off!)



"Black Cat" Artisan Perfume Mini Spritzer Bottle by Wylde Ivy. I am generally not a fan of perfume at all. Being around someone who wears too much irritates my allergies and gives me a headache. That being said, I *adore* the scent of Black Cat so much that I'm probably going to end up buying a full-size bottle. It's unique scent is simply spell-binding, just like a black cat!


Subscriptions cost $34.99 a month, but you can get an even better deal if you prepay for 3 or 6 months. Also available is the Crazy CatLadyBox, which includes a couple surprises for your kitty! (I'm a terrible cat mom and didn't order that one for Truffles, but in my defense she has some other packages coming soon!)

To say that I'm thrilled with my first CatLadyBox would be an understatement. I'm already counting down the days until the July box lands on my doorstep.

Disclosure: I'm not being compensated in any way for this review. I am a proud CatLadyBox subscriber!

It's great to get a peek inside the CatLadyBox! we love Dorian but have been disappointed in every other subscription box we've seen. This one seems like the most creative and interesting anyone has created.

Enjoyed hearing about this. Hmmm, wondering about that "black cat perfume..."

Fur Everywhere said...

How cool is that?! These are way out of my price range (because basically everything is right now, ha), but it would make a lovely surprise gift for me or any other "crazy cat lady!" Love your cool bracelet :)

Caren Gittleman said...

Hmmm...like you I have always been hesitant about the subscription thing. I think you just SOLD me...KUDOS to you because that is NOT an easy thing for ANYONE to do in reference to ME lol.

Love Dorian and have known her for YEARS!! I love everything that she has ever created or has been involved with. She is truly dedicated.

I have featured her and BZTAT on our blog in the past..........I LOVE the items you received..........if they take Paypal I think thanks to YOU, Dorian might have just earned herself another subscriber!! Well done, YOU!!

Oh what a great box! The mom's only concern is that she doesn't want to subscribe to it monthly and wishes there was a way to just get the box once without having to go in and remember to cancel. Also it would be nice to be able to do a one-time order to send as a gift to someone.

I have been very curious about this box. I love everything cat themed like you and so I'm sure I would love everything in the boxes. Unfortunately they don't ship to Portugal :(
Thanks for your great review!

That was a superb collection of things to get in your first box!

Fiona L. Woods said...

Black Cat perfume? That's something I'm definitely interested in.

The Swiss Cats said...

It looks like a great box ! Purrs

Sweet Purrfections said...

Mom Paula is very interested in this box, but she doesn't want to commit to a continuing subscription at this time because of her medical issues. We hope Dorian will consider letting people by one-at-a-time in the near future.

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

Wow! That looks fantastic! Maybe Mommy should subscribe.

That sounds like a great box, but shame on you for not getting Truffles anything- just kidding :)

Cathy Keisha said...

TW wishes she hadn’t read this cos now her box won’t be a surprise. She wishes she had the $$ to order a subscription. When she was in her early 20s, she used to have subscriptions to two makeup boxes and look forward to seeing what surprises were inside.

I love surprise boxes :) This one looks really cool! When I first heard about them, I thought it was for cats. Then I learned it's for humans! Such a cool idea!
