What’s the purrfect way to brighten up the day, Listers? With a cuddle from an itty bitty kitty, of course! And thanks to our bestest buds at Uber, all your whiskery wishes have come true!
Today, feline fancying residents of Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Geelong, Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Perth are able to order kitten deliveries on demand as part of the UberKITTENS project, in support of local cat shelters in each city.
Following on from the huge success of UberKITTENS in the US, the aim is to raise funds and awareness for the desperate need for pet adoption.
So how does it work?
Through the Uber app, cat lovers in the lucky cities can order a ‘Kitten Car’ (for $40) which will transport kittens from each city’s partner shelter for ‘Kitten Playtime deliveries’. The kitties will be provided and chaperoned by Lort Smith Adoption Centre in Melbourne.
Get Your Kitten Fix Now:
1. Download the Uber app
2. Request the ‘KITTENS’ option in your app between 12pm and 4pm (local time)
3. If kittens are available, you will get to enjoy 15 minutes of furry fun delivered to your office, home or cat-lady girlfriend
Not only will you get 15 minutes of kitten-y joy, you’ll receive a cute #UberKITTENS gift bag and be snug in the knowledge that every dollar of your donation will go towards the participating shelter in your city.
Please Note: Kittens are cute. Real cute. Demand will be high, so it may take a few tries to find available furry friends! The $40 cuddle fee will be charged directly to your Uber account—no cash required. Don’t forget to capture all the adorbs action and share on FB, Insta and Twitter, with the hashtag #UBERKITTENS.
And, yes, Listers. If you fall in love with one of the kittens, you may just have found a furever friend. Please speak to your shelter representation or grab an adoption pack.
