Clear your calendars—#UberKITTENS are back in New York!

Cat’s out of the bag—UberKITTENS are back!

On Thursday, October 29, riders can request the company of a few furry friends at their office with a tap of the app. If matched, riders will have the chance to snuggle the kittens, test their skills in the workplace (they are excellent paper shredders), and even adopt a kitten if they pass the interview stage.

Enter code NYCKITTENS in your app for the chance to snuggle with UberKITTENS!

There’s more to UberKITTENS than just fierce kitten snuggles. For the $30 “snuggle fee,” Uber will turn around and support Bideawee, a leading pet adoption and animal welfare organization serving Long Island and the New York metropolitan area.

  3. ENTER promo code NYCKITTENS to unlock the special ‘KITTENS’ option
  4. REQUEST the ‘KITTENS’ option on the bottom slider in your app starting at 11am
  5. If matched, a car full of UberKITTENS will arrive for 15 minutes of snuggle time, with the opportunity to adopt one of the cats
