(Newser) – Have 15 minutes to fill and $30 to spare? Get on Uber. From 11am to 3pm Thursday, Uber will deliver kittens to the place of your choosing in 50 cities across the US and Canada just so you can get in a 15-minute cuddle session on National Cat Day, reports Tech Times. What happens if you fall in love with an adorable furball?

You're in luck, because each kitten will come from a shelter or rescue and is in need of a good home. Still, every visit will help as the proceeds will go toward participating shelters, Uber says. Just open up the Uber app and click the "kittens" option to get in on the action. Then be patient: Uber expects demand will be high. (Read more kitten stories.)
