Best Overall: Meowbox

Meowbox

Meowbox

The Meowbox is a monthly (or bimonthly, if you choose) subscription box filled with fun surprises for your cat. For about $23 per month, you will receive a box with at least five new items for your cat to eat, play with, and enjoy.

Every package comes with at least one toy and is always filled with healthy treats. If you have a cat with food allergies, you can select a box without treats. There is a new theme every month(i.e. brunch or sports), so you will always have something new to look forward to. Plus, if you provide your cat’s name, you can receive a personalized note for your furry friend.

Meowbox is one of the most popular cat subscription boxes on the market, so the company sometimes runs out of space to take new clients. If that happens, simply add your name to a waitlist. You'll receive a signup email when availability opens up. There is no commitment to join, so if the treats and toys don’t delight your feline, you can always cancel, no questions asked.

Best Budget: Pet Treater Cat Pack

Pet Treater Cat Pack

Pet Treater Cat Pack

Spoiling your cat doesn’t have to mean spending a lot of dough. The Pet Treater Cat Pack is a monthly subscription that costs about $15 a month and includes three to four treats and toys.

The company even offers a multi-cat box for around $25 that comes with five to eight surprises every month. You will get a variety of toys, natural treats, and other surprises, such as litter and cleaning supplies, all made in either the United States or Canada. You can cancel at any time, and the company offers various ways to reach customer service if you have any concerns about your box.

A Pet Treater membership is ideal for anyone who wants a few treats and toys but doesn't want to break the bank.

Best Variety: Litterbox

Litterbox

Litterbox

From the company that created the Robot Litter Box comes a cat subscription box that is filled with surprises for both cats and humans alike.

For around $30 per month, Litterbox offers a variety of cat toys and products, such as pet cleaners, litter, and more. Each box features six to eight products, and shipping is always free within the U.S. You will receive your first package within a week of ordering; every bundle thereafter ships the same day every month.

Litterbox is a great choice for anyone who wants to treat a furry feline but is more interested in cleaning supplies and cat toys. The mixture of cat- and human-friendly surprises makes this company ideal.

Best for Toys: KitNipBox

KitNipBox

KitNipBox

If your cat is the type to play all day long, you are probably looking for new items to keep them interested and engaged. While most cat subscription boxes include toys, KitNipBox gets high marks for the quality and variation of the toys in every monthly box.

Each month, this box will cost you around $20 for a single cat and about $30 for multiple, and you will receive five or more surprises to delight your feline. The bundle contains an assortment of cat toys, such as catnip-stuffed animals and a squeaking mouse, as well as all-natural treats.

If your cat has allergies, you can ask for a no-treat box filled with just toys and other non-edible products. We love that KitNipBox has options for multi-cat households without the need to buy additional full boxes.

Shipping is free within the U.S., and each product that you receive has gone through a rigorous testing process. If you’re unhappy for any reason, you can easily cancel your box with customer service.

Best for Cat Parents: CatLadyBox

CatLadyBox

CatLadyBox

Who says your feline should have all the fun? Perfect for anyone who considers themselves a cat mom (or dad), CatLadyBox is one of the most innovative boxes on our list. This subscription comes with a fun selection of items and offbeat surprises, like cat-themed shirts and cat jewelry (for you, not your cat).

Starting at around $35 a month, each box comes with three to four items just for you—and for about $5 more, you can add two goodies to treat your cat. Every bundle features free shipping within the U.S., as well as subscriber-exclusive access to discounts on additional products.

The CatLadyBox is a great gift for yourself or a friend, and you can even prepay for one, three, or six months up front to save money. If you select a month-to-month subscription, you can easily cancel at any time or opt to skip a month when you don’t need any new cat parent gear.

Best for a Good Cause: RescueBox

RescueBox

RescueBox

There's nothing better than knowing you're giving back with a purchase.

With RescueBox, you'll not only get your furry friend a bunch of fun toys and treats, but you'll also provide much-needed food and vaccinations to a homeless cat. The best part is that you can see exactly how many cats you’ve fed and vaccinated with every bundle you buy.

Each package features an assortment of treats, toys, and accessories for your cat. You can purchase a single month, or prepay up to 12 months in advance to save money. Boxes start at around $30 per month and the monthly price decreases the more frequent your subscription.

Shipping is free for RescueBox within the continental U.S., and you can cancel at any time with a month-to-month subscription. If you purchase a longer plan and decide to terminate your membership, you will receive the remaining months' boxes in the subscription you bought.

RescueBox is a great choice for anyone who wants to help homeless pets while giving their own furry friend a monthly surprise.

Best for Cat Food: Nom Nom

Nom Nom

Nom Nom

A slightly different option than our surprise boxes, Nom Nom is a subscription service that sends fresh cat food to your door every two or four weeks.

Each recipe is formulated specifically for your cat and their dietary needs, and it is never mass-produced or frozen. Each meal is prepared just days before it arrives and is made from only whole food ingredients without fillers.

If your pet is a picky eater, you can even sign up to receive multiple recipes in each order to keep them happy and full. Once you fill out a questionnaire about your cat (body weight, dietary restrictions, age), Nom Nom suggests a recipe for your cat. The average cost is about $20 for a two-week supply, but will vary based on your cat’s needs.

Each order is packed with dry ice to keep your cat food fresh. If you're not satisfied after 30 days, you can always request a full refund, no questions asked.

Nom Nom is a great choice for anyone who has considered feeding their cat fresh food—it provides all the benefits without the hassle of cooking.
