Uber Offers Kitten Delivery Service for One Day in Australia! Purr-fect Idea!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Ride-sharing service Uber held a one-day-only promotion Thursday in Australia allowing customers to order a kitten car and have baby cats come to visit.


Uber said the UberKittens promotion, designed to raise awareness of adoptable pets, was available Thursday only in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Geelong and the Gold Coast.

The UberKittens service cost about $31 and involved a kitten car allowing customers to play with the felines for about 15 minutes. "


I commend Uber for thinking outside the litter box, and conceiving this unusual and delightful promotion.

I have my hands full with my 25-pound cat Tico, but this is a terrific idea for folks who live in apartments that don`t allow pets. If I didn`t have my own cat, I would certainly avail myself of this promotion.

If there were kitten cars in all of the major cities of the world, it would go a long way towards relieving the stress of everyday life.

I hope Uber or another company will make kittens cars a service that`s available year-round.
