Whatever your situation, sometimes we all have a day when a boost could really turn your day around… to turn that frown upside down.
Well, how about some kitten cuddle time? Yeah, you heard me right! 15 minutes of cuddles with a cute kitten… delivered RIGHT TO YOU. For REAL!
It’s happening TODAY! Thursday, October 29, from 11 am to 3 pm!
For the third year in a row, Uber is making its drivers available in select cities to deliver kittens right to you. In its first year, Uber hosted UberKITTENS in three cities. Last year, it was expanded to seven cities. But this year, they’ve really stepped it up to now delivering in 50 cities across North America. That’s right FIFTY CITIES! That’s CATrageous!
Sauerkraut is partnering with Uber and the Central Oklahoma Humane Society (the organization that rescued Sauerkraut) to promote the event. In conjunction with the kitten delivery, first-time Uber users can also use the Promo Code SAUERKRAUT to get a $20 credit on their first ride!
WHY? you might ask.
Uber is partnering with rescue organizations across the country to raise awareness around pet adoption, and to give back to local shelters. And most of the kittens being delivered are adoptable! The Uber driver will arrive with a representative from the shelter, and you can work with them to see if your kitten is available to join your family.
In its first year, UberKITTENS adopted out six kittens; last year, that number rose to 21. And who knows how many might get adopted this year?!
And even if you aren’t looking for a kitten to adopt, hey, I can personally tell you there are few things which can set a day straight quicker than a kitten nuzzling your neck or nibbling your earlobe!
HOW DO I GET SOME OF THAT ACTION?!
You can check on Uber’s website to see if UberKITTENS is available in your city. Hoping to cuddle a flame-point in Fargo? You’ve got it. Craving a tabby in Tucson? You’re on.
If they’re in your home town, use the Uber App to request your kitten delivery between 11 am and 3 pm. For just a $30 “snuggle fee” you get 15 minutes of playtime. The best part? With that, Uber then turns right around and supports the rescue organization!
And remember, even if UberKITTENS isn’t available where you are, if you’re a new Uber user, you can use the Promo code SAUERKRAUT for a free first ride up to $20! AND Uber will donate $5 of that to Sauerkraut’s alma mater, Central Oklahoma Humane Society, no matter where you live!
So help out shelter cats, help out the rescue organizations in these fifty cities, and help *yourself* to a little stress relief!
