5 Ways to Celebrate National Cat Day

1 – Clear your day. #UberKITTENS are back! 

For just $30, Uber will deliver kittens on-demand in 50 cities!

It’s just a $30 “snuggle fee” for the best 15 minutes of your day and we will turn around and support the participating shelters! If you’re smitten for a kitten or are looking for a new purr-sonal assistant just ask the local shelter representative assisting with your kitten delivery. We’ve helped over 30 kittens find their forever homes through UberKITTENS and this year, we hope to find every eligible kitten a home!

National Cat Day is Thursday, October 29 — it always sneaks up on us! — and Uber will be offering on-demand kitten delivery to offices in 50 US cities.


  1. Open your Uber app between 11 am and 3 pm.
  2. Request the “KITTENS” option in your app. Set a reminder to request at the purrfect time. 
  3. 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!
  4. The best part? In most cities, kittens are eligible for adoption.
