5 Best Cat Subscription Boxes
There are plenty of subscription boxes available for dogs — we get it, they’re man’s best friend, whatever — but cats rule and dogs drool, so can we talk about the amazing pet subscription boxes for cats for just a sec?? (If you’re a special unicorn and you have dogs and cats, these subscription boxes are basically BarkBox for cats.)
Between meowbox, KitNipBox, Cat Lady Box, The Cat Kit, My Purrfect Gift Box, and Paw Print Club, it’s easier than ever to spoil your furry little angel. I’ve turned into a bit of a crazy cat lady since adopting my little Russian Blue kitten, Lazarus, and we’ve had endless hours of fun trying out cat subscription boxes — and the following are the best of the best!
meowbox is hands-down my (and Laz’s) favorite cat subscription box. For $22.95 a month, you receive four to six toys and treats — and they always personalize your box with your kitty’s name. meowbox is unique in that they have a program called One Box Can — and for every meowbox purchased, they send a can of food to a shelter cat.
Aside from the obvious — meowbox is super cute AND charitable — Laz loved every single one of his toys. I’ve never considered him to be a picky cat by any means, but with other subscription boxes, he’s only taken to one or two toys max out of the box. But his meowbox toys are his absolute favorite. (Plus, they make for some hella cute Instagram posts!)
meowbox is also my favorite because of its active social media presence. They always make sure to like Laz’s photos when they’re tagged, and they’ve even commented on how “handsome” he is before. (Hint: If you wanna get in good with me, compliment my cat. That’s literally all it takes.) So if your kitty is a social media star, meowbox is the right cat subscription box for you.
meowbox also has an online shop, so if your kitty becomes obsessed with a toy, you can restock!

KitNipBox is a slightly less expensive option — starting at $14.99 a month via the Starter Pack, your kitty is treated to 3 new toys each month. If you’ve got more than 1 cat (holla atcha cat ladies!), you can subscribe to the Multi-Cat KitNipBox for $32.99, which supplies toys and treats for multiple cats. They have super cute themes each month — so far, Laz has received a movie-themed box and a carnival-themed box.
KitNipBox gets the most points from me for their amazing customer service. They get back to me ASAP when I email, and they’re always friendly. They’re also super active on social media and love seeing kitties playing with their KitNipBoxes!

I’m going to be real here — I reached out to CatLadyBox multiple times via email and social media about reviewing their box, and they never once got back to me. It’s not a good look if you ask me. (Hey CatLadyBox, hit me up if you want to mend fences: email@example.com).
Lack of customer service aside, CatLadyBox is a cool pet subscription box. Their basic CatLadyBox plan ($34.99/month) actually includes items just for cat mommas — cat-themed jewelry, shirts, accessories, and home decor. If you do want items for your kitty, you can choose the $43.99/month CRAZY CatLadyBox plan — you’ll receive your usual two to three cat-themed items, plus two items for your furry friend. You also have the option of sending either of these boxes as a gift to a fellow crazy cat lady.
CatLadyBox is also charitable — they donate a portion of all profits to cat rescue organizations each month.

BoxCat describes itself as a “Luxury Cat Subscription Boxes” business. From beds to tunnels to scratchers to treats, this box has it all! The treats are handmade by BoxCat chefs and they claim even picky cats can’t resist. (I have yet to put this to the test. Stay tuned.)
Though it boasts luxury items, it isn’t the most expensive subscription on this list. The Monthly Basic Plan is only $28/month and comes with a bag of treats and 4-5 small toys or gear. If you want to upgrade to the Monthly Luxury Plan, you can pay $40/month to receive everything in the Basic Plan plus a large luxury item.
They also offer a fun seasonal plan in which you receive 4 giant boxes per year that have treats, 5-7 toys and cat gear, and you get to choose 1-2 large luxury items. Right now, if you subscribe to any multi-month plan, you’ll receive a free velvet blanket!

So Smalls is a little different from the previous subscription boxes—it’s all about food. But if you have a picky eater or your furry friend needs a special diet, it doesn’t get much better than Smalls. The first thing you do is find out what your cat likes with a “risk-free sampler”. If your cat doesn’t like it, they’ll refund you. Can’t really go wrong here!
Then, you’ll pick a subscription box that works for you. The favorite recipes will be delivered in time increments of 2-8 weeks; whatever works best for you. They are flexible when it comes to prices—they base it on the number and size of your cats. Just complete the questionnaire for a look at what you’d be paying.
With all-natural, human-grade ingredients and a variety of flavors and textures, your feline companion is sure to be pleased they chose you as their human. The box shipped and packaged with dry ice for about $40.
