Need a Kitten? Uber Will Deliver

Uber Kittens

Uber, the transportation company that lets customers reserve a private car ride with their mobile device, is celebrating National Cat Day today by delivering kittens to your office.

The company has teamed up with popular cat meme website I Can HazĀ Cheezburger to deliver kittens on demand in New York, Seattle, and San Francisco. Users who opt for the kitten delivery will have kittens delivered to their office for 15 minutes, along with an assortment of cupcakes from Ace of Cakes.

An order of kittens and cupcakes is priced at $20, and Uber will donate all of that money to an animal shelter in the respective city. Additional donations are encouraged. The company is working closely with the shelters on the project, and a shelter representative will be accompanying all Uber kitten deliveries.

In New York and San Francisco, Uber has teamed up with the SPCA, and in Seattle, they are working with the local chapter of the Humane Society. Shelter workers will also be providing information about how to adopt a kitten that makes an Uber visit, should you fall in love and not want to let it go.

Kitten deliveries are limited, will only occur between 11:00 AM and 4:00 PM, and only in the three cities listed.
