WASHINGTON — Pretty much any workday could be brightened by a few minutes of romping kittens, and the car-sharing company Uber is making it happen.

On Thursday, Uber will bring a passel of kittens to offices in the District for 15 minutes of playtime — as well as potential adoption — to offices between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Here’s how you do it, courtesy of Uber:

  • Open your Uber app, tap the Profile icon in the top left corner and tap Promotions.
  • Enter the promotion code DCKITTENS to unlock the special ‘KITTENS’ option.
  • Request ‘KITTENS’ between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Thursday.

Uber adds that you should make sure no one in your office is allergic to cats, and you should have a separate, secure room for kitten playtime.

It costs $30, which goes to the Washington Humane Society. A representative from the society will be there as well, in case someone can’t resist the urge to take a kitten home.
