Buying gifts for your cat has never required less endless scrolling than with cat subscription boxes. In theory, the smorgasbord of toys the internet has to offer should be a joy to pick from, but in actuality it makes for a headache of a browsing process. With subscription boxes, you can get the best tech toys, catnip stuffed plushies, and puzzle feeders for your cat without painstakingly reading through tons of reviews. Because let’s be real, that can take forever.

Whether you opt for Meowbox’s curated seasonal toys or Pusheen’s animated comic-printed cat mugs, it’ll be a subscription service you won’t regret signing up for (sorry, Disney+!). With these subscriptions, it’s easy enough to pick the best plan and get sent a bunch of goodies for you and your cat on a monthly basis. This way, you can focus on more important things, like refilling your cat’s favorite felt toy with a catnip surprise.

Check out these nine cat subscription boxes that any pet would be happy to get as a present — even if they end up only playing with the box.

Btw, our editors (and their pets) picked out these products. They’re always in stock at the time we publish, but there’s a chance they’ll sell out. If you do buy through our links, we may earn a commission. (We’ve got a lot of toys to buy over here, you know?)

9 best cat subscription boxes

cat subscription box

Meowbox is by far the most popular of the cat subscription boxes out there — and for good reason. They have a reputation of long-lasting and high-quality toys, with the added bonus of offering an every-other-month subscription option in addition to their monthly plan.

The boxes go for $26 a month, which is on the more affordable side, though the price goes up for non-renewing gift options. If you’re not feeling up for going in on an entire box, Meowbox has a pretty substantial online store, including a section for humans if you want to buy something small for yourself as a treat. —Tim Barribeau

catlady cat subscription box

Regardless of how you identify, the CatLadyBox’s combo of gifts for both cat and their parent are a blast. Some cat boxes feature exclusive handcrafted goodies unique to CatLady.

In addition to the monthly subscription boxes, CatLadyBox also lets you pick up items piecemeal, so even if you don’t want to go in for a whole box, you can find some lovely gifts for pet, person, or yourself.

Personally, I’m absolutely vibing with this cat rope basket and this minimalist cat vase. The boxes come either for people only (starting at $35 per month for a six-month pre-pay) or include a couple of cat toys for an additional $5 per month. —TB

cardboard box with toys surrounding it

“Spoil your pets. Help animals in need.” It’s a simple slogan, but one with a timeless message: You can give back while doting on your loved ones. With RescueBox, your cat will get five premium products and the proceeds from each box will be used to feed 142 shelter animals. Providing homeless pets with food while gifting your cat unique toys, treats, and chews with a value of $40, well, that’s a win-win. Plus, each box has a different theme, so your cat will never tire of their shipments. —TB

KitNipBox is a box with a mission to support cat charities around the U.S. — which makes them a perfect present if you want to give back a little, too. They’ve donated a portion of monthly proceeds and products to more than 100 shelters, rescues, TNR (trap-neuter-return) efforts, and more.

Designed for the ’nip fan in your life (you know the one), each box comes loaded with toys, cat treats, grooming products, and, of course, catnip. You can grab one of two tiers of box: a smaller one for $20 a month with five items, or the larger “Multi-Cat KitNipBox” box with seven toys for $30 — though those numbers drop with a longer subscription. And if your cat’s on a diet, there’s a “no treat” option, too. —TB

whisker box cat subscrption

WhiskerBox is the only cat box subscription that includes cat toys, treats, and — wait for it — apparel. The Mew Subscription ($35 per month) affords you four to five premium items with a $50 value, while the Meow Subscription ($50 per month) offers four to six goodies with a value of $80 per box. Whether its a new stimulating toy, a scrumptious treat, or a stylish new sweater, WhiskerBox’s monthly offerings have you and your cat covered. —AF

BoxCat lets you decide how much you want to commit by offering three different plans. The Monthly Basic Box (starting at $28 per box) will come with four to five small toys or cat gear and a bag of handmade treats.

The Luxury Box ($45 per month and up) carries four to five items, including small toys, a bag of handmade treats, and one large luxury item. The extra-big quarterly Seasonal Box (which starts at $50 a box) will include five to seven items including small toys, and one to two large luxury items of your choice, including velvet cat blankets, tunnels, foraging mats, beds, vegan skincare, and more. —TB
