Following the HUGE success of UberKITTENS in the US, UBER Australia have decided that delivering kittens to strangers for fifteen minutes is a great way to give everyone the warm and fuzzies. According to the AUS team’s blog, “we were inundated with requests from riders and some amazing local shelters to bring it to our shores so we could share the kitten love and spread the word about the importance of finding much needed homes for our furry friends.”
The best thing is that for every dollar donated during kitten visits goes directly to the participating shelter in your city. It costs $40 and the fact it’s for such a good cause outweighs the logistical nightmare we can only assume comes from flinging kittens all around the city.
Instructions are simple:
- Download the Uber app
- Request the ‘KITTENS’ option in your app between 12pm and 4pm (local time)
- If kittens are available, you will get to enjoy 15 minutes of kitten cuteness delivered to your office, your sweetheart or even your favourite cat lady!
