Every year, people all across the country celebrate cats and their awesomeness on October 29, which is known as National Cat Day. This year, Uber collaborated meme site Cheezburger to do something different. They set up a temporary service which ran for five hours to deliver adoptable kittens on demand to people who wanted one.
In case you haven’t heard of them, Uber is an app that lets people call for a car service with a tap of a button. They updated their app with a “KITTENS!” button last week, where users can instead opt to have a cat delivered instead of a car for $20. For that amount, users were treated to fifteen minutes of snuggling with a kitty plus cupcakes from Ace of Cakes while supplies lasted. They also had the option to adopt the kitten if they wanted to.
The best part? All of the proceeds were donated to local animal shelters. More details about the event that was here.
