You’re subscribed to monthly makeup and vinyl record boxes, but aren’t you forgetting a certain feline friend?

There are plenty of subscription boxes that are made just for cat owners, and they offer an easy, affordable way to fulfill your cat’s needs every month. Most of these subscription boxes focus on the essentials, like toys, treats, and litter. But some are made to pamper your cat, or provide a solution for your lousy kitty litter situation.

But how do you wade through all the various boxes to find the perfect one for your cat? You don’t, because we’ve done the wading for you. All of these cat boxes start at a reasonable rate for single-cat households. But if you have more than one cat, then you can always pay a little extra to get more toys, treats, or litter.

For the Generous Cat Owner: Rescue Box ($24+)

If your cat came from a shelter, then you know how important it is to support homeless pets. Shelters rely on food and cash donations to keep animals alive, but donating to a shelter can be difficult when you have to buy food for cats at home.

Luckily, Rescue Box provides a solution. Rescue Box is a subscription service that helps you save money on treats and toys, while also showing your support for shelters. For every month that you’re subscribed to Rescue Box, the company donates 5 pounds of food and 2 vaccines to animal shelters. Not bad.

For the Essentials: KitNipBox ($20+)

Some subscription boxes can be a little quirky or over the top. If you’re just trying to buy traditional cat treats and toys at a discount, then you should take a look at KitNipBox.

Every month, KitNipBox sends you a package full of essential treats, toys and catnip that your feline friend will love. None of these toys are too weird, so you know that your cat will actually get some use out of them.

KitNipBox’s single-cat subscription only costs $20 a month, but you can get a better deal on cat essentials if you subscribe to the multi-cat box for $30 a month.

For the Litter Box Junkie: Pretty Litter ($23+)

Do you always wait until the last minute to buy kitty litter? Well, maybe you should try a service like Pretty Litter. Every month that you’re subscribed to Pretty Litter, the company sends you a 4-pound bag of litter for each cat in your home. But what’s so special about Pretty Litter, and how do 4 pounds of litter last a whole month?

Pretty Litter is actually a brand of hygienic non-clumping litter. It dehydrates your cat’s poop without sticking to it, so you don’t waste a ton of litter every time you clean the box. That’s how you get a month of use out of a 4-pound bag.

Pretty Litter can also be used as an early indicator for some health problems that your cat might encounter. The special litter changes color depending on the PH balance of your cat’s urine, or the presence of blood. A strange color in your litter box might help you get to the vet before things get too serious.

For the Feline Royalty: Whisker Box ($35+)

Not all subscription boxes are for saving money, some are just for spoiling your cat. Whisker Box’s monthly curated cat boxes are a great way to say “I love you” to a cat that deserves the finest things in life.

Every month, Whisker Box gives you the opportunity to choose a themed box for your cat. These themed boxes range from “Cat Avenue Spa” to “Meowster Ego,” and they’re choked full of treats, outfits, and stimulating toys that you and your cat will love.
