National Cat Day might just be our favorite day here at Animal Planet (there are a lot of cat people here) and we're so excited to help you celebrate as well!
Today, Uber is letting you order a car that will deliver kittens directly to your office for some quality snuggle time. As Uber explains via their blog, this is how it works:
- Open your Uber app between 12 pm & 4 pm.
- Request the “KITTENS” option in your app. In NYC or DC? Enter promo code kittensnyc or kittensdc to unlock the option in your app.
- Once the kittens arrive, you and your friends will get to enjoy 15 minutes of kitten cuteness! PRO TIP: Make sure to have an enclosed space purrrfect for playtime! In New York City, kittens can only be delivered to offices.
- The best part? In most cities, kittens are eligible for adoption.
For just $30, you get 15 minutes of quality time with the kittens. Even better? Every dollar from your visit is donated to a participating shelter in your city. Uber expects the demand to be high, so while you may not get a chance to cuddle up with these cuties, you can still do your part by visiting participating shelters:
- Austin Humane Society
- Chicago Anti-Cruelty Society
- Washington Humane Society
- NYC ASPCA
- Arizona Humane Society
- SF SPCA
- Seattle Humane Society
If we haven't quite convinced you yet, maybe Uber Spokescat Princess Monster Truck will change your mind...
And if the kittens aren't available where you are, you can track all the fluffy moments via the #UberKITTENS tag on Twitter right here!
