Uber Phoenix Will Bring Kittens to Your Office Today


Looking for a new office assistant?

Well, in honor of National Cat Day, Uber drivers in Phoenix are offering to bring adorable kittens to your office between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. for you and your coworkers to play with, fall in love with, or put to work — we hear their paper-shredding skills are unparalleled.

For a $30 "snuggle fee," as Uber calls it, you get 15 minutes of engagement time — office-speak for "procrastination time" — and all proceeds go to the Arizona Humane Society. 

Ready for the best part? They're all up for adoption.


Here's a sample of "cat-tidates" you can interview (read: cuddle with) 
Here's how it works:
1. Open the Uber app between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. and request "KITTENS."
2. A driver will bring a kitten for 15 minutes.
3. Surprise your coworkers with the greatest midday office party ever (or hoard the kitten in your cubicle and keep all the cuddle time for yourself).
4. Fall in love with said kitten. 
5. Consider adopting it...

Conclusion: As Uber puts it, this is the "purr-fect" way to celebrate National Cat Day.
