    Not sure if you’re a cat lover? Well, Thursday is the purr-fect day to test your cat tolerance.

    In honor of National Cat Day, the app that pairs you with a driver will also deliver adorable kittens from local shelters on-demand.

    For a “snuggle fee” of $30, Uber will bring you a fluffy feline to play with for 15 minutes between 11:00 a.m. and 3 p.m. in over 50 cities nationwide. The fee will be donated to participating local shelters.

    To arrange your midday playtime just open the Uber app and select the “kittens” option. An Uber driver and shelter chaperone will arrive at your home or office with a kitty to cuddle in no time.

    If you aren’t ready to say goodbye at the end of your designated time and realize you really are a cat lover, then you’re in luck. Many of the kittens are available for adoption.

    Is there a catch? No. Uber only asks that you have an enclosed space for playtime and that your boss or building is aware the kitten is coming. Also, make sure no coworkers in the area are allergic.

    Find your participating UberKitten city and shelter at Uber.com and don't forget to share you #UberKittens play date on social media.
