Did you know that today is National Cat Day? In honor of the occasion, private car service Uber has teamed with popular meme site Cheezburger to bring kittens right to you. The idea is that anyone in New York City, Seattle, and San Francisco can request a kitten delivery and spend 15 minutes playing with kittens and enjoy cupcakes — for just one day only.
In order to summon the cats to you, open up the Uber app and select the “KITTENS!” option. This offering is only available between 11am and 4pm and Uber says it expects to see heavy demand — keep trying. It will cost you $20 which will all go towards a local city shelter. If you want, you can also adopt them.
