Sorry, but I stand by my original comment. Just because ‘Uber Kitten’ is a thing, doesn’t make it right. It’s ridiculous. If people can order s cat to their desk and adopt it, surely they can drive themselves to a shelter and do the same.

No. Just no. Cats are living things not a freaking party favor.

And you need another poll option. No because its wrong.

Where do you live? Cat cafe’s are coming to life in some cities. We have at least one in DC.

I adore animals and volunteer with several rescues in my area. If my Maid/Matron of Honor did this for my bachelorette party I would be so bummed. Do a spa day if you aren’t comfortable doing anything friskier.

I work in an animal shelter. Some large shelters may do uber delivery of kittens but we don’t. They are very susceptible to disease and more medically fragile than most people believe. We like to keep our kittens safe and sound in our faculty until they’re adopted. I think there are lots of fun ideas suggested by others on this thread that don’t involve live creatures.

cats don ‘t like being put in carriers and they really don’t like being driven around in cars. Whoever came up with this “Uber Kitten” nonsense is more interested in money than in the welfare of the animals. Ashley Madison was (still is) an incredibly lucrative business; that doesn’t make it any less ridiculous.

As someone else said, she’s looking for stuff she doesn’t do, and as a married woman is totally unacceptable. She told you what she wanted, that’s the point. She wants to go to a club, or have a stripper, not pet cats. I find it very taboo for someone to love cats THAT much to where she suggests one thing and the person planning does totally opposite and she’s still super excited that this is her night and she gets to pet a cat.
Reguardless of whether this is a “thing” now n days wherever, this is NOT what SHE as the BRIDE has asked for or even slightly suggested. Its not about whether she likes cats and there’s a mocha Joe shop that serves cats in a play ground minus the cat fur in your cup of joe around the corner. She is the bride, this is her night, respect her ideas and decisions and if it is not YOUR cup of Joe, think of some ideas and RUN IT BY HER FIRST. Totally forget the cats and kittens and cup of joe. She will be disappointed and she will be pissed. She’s not 12, she’s a grown woman who is getting married and if she wants her night of fun, deliver it or pass it on to someone else to make the decision.
She wants to be the cat being pet by a sweaty man who may or may not take his gstring off. Not go petting cats. Point being, this IS ridiculous, this IS not what she asked for, she WILL be disappointed.
-how would you feel if you wanted a night of crazyness before your wedding and your maid of honor decided to have an elephant ride planned, and you get pictures… Yay. Or what if you actually wanted the elephant ride and pictures and you told her this is what you want, and she rented out a strip club full of sweaty gross men in gstrings instead? You would be pissed. You would be disappointed. Point. Blank. Period.
This is her night.

Anyone who is trying to find a home for kittens (craiglist, bulletin boards at local vet’s office, etc. shelters won’t lend) might be down to rent them or lend them for a night! Esepcaily if you try to help find them homes. I love the idea (i am cat crazy myself) but beware of some bms who will claim they are allergic! Allergies ruin everything!!!!!! (like my cats can’t sleep in my bedroom becuase my husband is allergic)

you’re fucking joking right?
you cant’ rent kittens because it makes you warm and fuzzy. They are EXTREMELY sensative and take days to adjust to their new enviornment- my last cat- I thought she escaped and I’d lost her b/c she literally didn’t come out when we were around for 3 weeks. She was completely traumataized from being transported.
You want something tamer than strippers and pole but more fun? See if anyone hosts bellydance girls night outs- host a private party (I’m helping host two in the next 3 weeks) – drinks wine- fun- no boys- safe envionrment.

First off, wow. Not practical.
Second, if you place a bunch of cats in a room with people they don’t know, they WILL freak out. If they don’t spas out in the guests, they will spas out in each other. That’s not a maybe, it’s an absolute. I have 3 that cats that I have had for 8+ years and they still run and hide when people come over that they are not familiar with. borderline animal cruelity.
Third, let’s plan something that maybe 50% of the party attendees will not be allergic to. What about a group trail ride on horseback? High tea? Trip to the zoo?
