Uber Will Bring A Kitten To Your Door Today (If You Live In The Right City)

In the need for a furry snuggle to brighten up your day? We live in an age where you can get anything delivered to your door, and today that includes kittens for the lucky residents of Austin, Chicago, DC, New York, Phoenix, San Francisco, and Seattle, with UberKITTEN, which is returning once again after the masses clamored for more cats last year.

To celebrate National Cat Day, Uber teamed up with meme site Cheezburger and the ASPCA to shuttle kittens around to demanding customers between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. local time today, the company writes on its blog.

Each kitten “delivery” costs $30, a donation to a participating shelter which is charged directly to your Uber account will be matched by Uber as well, and buys the customer 15 minutes worth of kitten canoodling.

Interested in a kitten for keeps? Uber says they’re eligible for adoption in most cities, so you can inquire when you meet your cat date.

Uber users simply open the app and use the “KITTENS!” button in the app to bring the feline friend to your door. Those who do request a kitten to the office need to clear it with bosses/security/management, and having a dedicated room for the cat to hang out wherever you have it delivered is preferred.

Those in NYC and DC can also enter the promo code kittensnyc or kittensdc to unlock the option in your app.

As it happened with a similar cat stunt in NYC last year, demand for kittens is likely going to be high, so if at first you don’t get a kitten, try, try again.

And again, I must end with KITTENS.
