Today, in honor of National Cat Day, we’re teaming up with Cheezburger, the online humor network, and Uber for a special three-city event, "I Can Has Uber Kittens.” For only $20 (with 100% of the New York proceeds benefiting the ASPCA), cat lovers can order a special “kitten car” to bring furry felines to their office for some exclusive kitty playtime!

Uber drivers in New York, San Francisco and Seattle will transport the kittens, accompanied by shelter volunteers as chaperones, from each city’s partner shelter. As a thank you for every visit, Cheezburger is including a delivery of designer cupcakes created by celebrity pastry chef Duff Goldman, star of Ace of Cakes on The Food Network.  In addition to the proceeds from each kitten visit, Cheezburger will make an additional donation to all three participating shelters.

This fun and lighthearted event was created to highlight the importance of making pet adoption your first option. There are millions of cats in shelters across the country that may not be a part of the Uber kitten car but are still uber cute and waiting for a home!

Follow the action on ASPCA Instagram, ASPCA Twitter and ASPCA Facebook from 10 to 3 EDT using the hashtag #iCanHasUberKittens.
