Got a request at 230am this morning. I accepted and a text from rider pops up? "You allergic to cats"? To which I replied "No, do we have a 4 legged passenger on our trip"? To which he replied  "A cat but in a cage will make no mess. Have emergency.   eed to get him to Animal Hospital". I'm game. I pick them up and poor little kitty in cage was crying. From what rider described cat was possibly obstructed. So off we went flying through the night with sirens on, lights flashing:) Got them there 5 min earlier than we were suposed to arrive. Hope all worked out for the poor kitty. $10.00 tip for getting kitty there fast.

    It wouldn't make sense for Uber to make this a special service but I am happy that people are using Uber to hopefully save their animals!

        Me too! I hate seeing animal in pain. I would have been so stressed out during that ride.

          I was a little anxious when he would cry out. Not only was cat probably in pain but being in the carrier and car wasnt helping. I told passenger he could take him out of cage if it would help. I asked rider if he was ok with me going slightly over speed limit to which he replied no not all and thank you for doing it. I just got him there as quick as possible. I normally drive fast when I am not driving with people in my car. The road I had to take was major highway that I take often with no traffic no police around. I knew rider was upset and anxious just thought it was best for all of us to get there asap. He told me how he rescued him, his brother, and sister from a dumpster in one of the Hurricanes. Had them ever since. If the cat was obstructed he needed medical treatment quickly just hope all goes well.

    What a courteous man to ask whether you were allergic to cats. Understands what rideshares are about and how they are private personal cars.

      There are some people that just make your shift very relaxing, nice, and easy. There are some really kind and thoughtful people out there. Unfortunately with the good there are also the bad. I am fortunate enough to get more of the good, kind people. Yes that was thoughtful because many people do what they want and dont ask. By the pax being thoughtful he could've had a driver that didnt want an animal in his car and driver may have cancelled. Thankfully we got the kitty their very quickly. Happy I could help. Hope his cat is ok. He even tipped me in the app later that morning:) We are required to take service animals by law and Ubers guidelines. Pets are another story. Sadly some drivers will not take service animals but they risk getting reported. Yes it does get messy with dog hair and takes me off the road to vacuum my car for 5 min. I had a service dog in my car the other night. Although I got dog hair up my next pax was allergic to dogs. She coughed and sneezed the whole rid…

She was understanding about the service dog so things went ok. At least for now. Lol  I still could get a report from Uber this week:) I'll know by the weekend.
