In Honor Of National Cat Day, Uber Is Delivering Kittens In Cities Across The U.S.

Wednesday is National Cat Day. And in celebration of felines all over, Uber has teamed up with the ASPCA and Cheezburger to bring some kittens to your doorstep.

Uber senior marketing manager Ed Casabian stopped by HuffPost Live on Wednesday, with a few furry friends in tow, to discuss the partnership.

"Today, instead of requesting an Uber X or an Uber black car, you can actually request Uber kittens on demand. So a kitten car will come to your office," Casabian told host Marc Lamont Hill. "You just have to enter the promo code 'KITTENSNYC.' That will unlock a special view to be able to request the kittens."

Each 15-minute cuddle session with a kitten costs $30 -- all proceeds go to local shelters -- but animal lovers can use the Uber app to donate any amount to the cause, and the company will match all donations.

In addition to New York, the kitten car service is also available in Austin, Chicago, DC, Phoenix, San Francisco and Seattle.

Watch some adorable kittens take over the HuffPost Live studio in the video above. And learn more about UberKittens here.
