Today is National Cat Day — the cutest day of the year. We’ve teamed up with Cheezburger and the ASPCA® for a second year to bring you kittens… literally.

Austin, Chicago, DC, New York, Phoenix, San Francisco, and Seattle—break out all the warm fuzzy feelings and get ready to go “awwwwww” with #UberKITTENS!



  1. Open your Uber app between 12 pm & 4 pm.
  2. Request the “KITTENS” option in your app. In NYC or DC? Enter promo code kittensnyc or kittensdc to unlock the option in your app.
  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! In New York City, kittens can only be delivered to offices.
  4. The best part? In most cities, kittens are eligible for adoption.

It’s just $30 for 15 minutes of kitten snuggles and every dollar from your visit is donated directly to the participating shelter in your city! In most cities, you’ll also have the option of adopting that little furball you’ve almost certainly fallen in love with. Just ask the local shelter rep assisting with your kitten delivery.

Keep in mind we expect demand for UberKITTENS to be VERY HIGH in all cities, so your patience is appreciated. We’ll do our best to deliver as many kitten cuddles as possible! If you can’t get a visit from the kittens today, visit the adoptable kittens in person using the links below.

Uber will be matching all donations made to the participating shelters via the Uber app!



We all know her and we love her. Princess Monster Truck, a rescue cat herself, wants YOU to help by donating to your participating shelter or adopting today! And of course, we have crowned her the OFFICIAL Princess of National Cat Day!

We hope you have a purrrrfect day!
