Good news: It's National Cat Day. More good news: For a limited time, Uber is delivering kittens to your door!
For today only, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the U.S. and Canada, Uber users can pay $30 to snuggle and play with a kitten for up to 15 minutes. Select UberKITTENS on your Uber app and let the magic happen.
In most cities, the kittens are eligible for adoption. For the last two years, UberKITTENS has connected cat lovers with the adorable animals in hopes of finding the kittens new homes. Approximately 3.4 million cats enter shelters each year. Of those, about "37 percent are adopted, 41 percent are euthanized and less than 5 percent of cats who came in as strays are returned to their owners." The most common reasons for people relinquishing their cats are that they were not allowed in the residence and allergies.
