If you live in Seattle, San Francisco or New York today, you're the luckiest mother fucker on the planet. In those markets Uber has paired up with meme blog Cheezeburger to deliver adorable kittens to anyone wanting 15 minutes of playtime -- today only -- from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Also in tow? A complimentary cupcake from Ace of Cakes.

It's a measure to promote National Cat Day (real) and all of those adorable, tiny-pawed kittens are available for adoption, chaperoned around by loving adoption handlers. The cost of this service is $20 and proceeds go to area shelters.

But, dear Dallas, don't bother searching your Uber app for the special "KITTEN!" option. We don't get it. Not this year, anyway.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
