#UberDATA for UberKITTENS
When we set out to offer kitten snuggling on-demand, we knew you would be excited, but we had no idea you would go catnip-crazy! :)
For some, we made the impossible happen – a little, fluffy, snuggly kitty that actually came to you when you called it. Others, sadly, were kittenless due to incredibly high-demand. :( We would have loved to deliver kitten snuggles to everyone, but to do so we would have needed A LOT more kittens.
In order to fulfill every request for UberKITTENS, we would have needed 217x more cats – 5,223 if you want to be exact.
That’s about 1,044 kittens delivered every hour.
Thankfully, the local shelters don’t have that many kittens up for adoption.
So, how many of our kitten friends found homes? Six of the kittens chauffeured around last Tuesday were adopted! Thanks to all of you, the shelters saw increased donations – not just as a direct result of our delivering kittens, but as an indirect result of all of you going to their websites and sharing the love. Awwwwww.
In the end, #ICanHasUberKittens raised a total of $14,268 for the shelters in Seattle, New York City, and San Francisco.

A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
This flu season, we’re delivering free flu-fighting care packages across the country. When you receive a pack, you’ll have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse–for up to 5 people.
