Shark Tank Season 13 has succeeded in impressing fans so far. The upcoming episodes are expected to do the same as multiple interesting business deals are yet to be introduced to the world.

The ABC-backed reality show welcomes aspiring entrepreneurs to showcase their business deals on its platform in front of millionaire and billionaire judges aka sharks. One such unique idea that will be introduced on Shark Tank next Friday is a dating app called Tabby Dates.

What is Tabby Dates on Shark Tank?

Tabby Dates is a dating app for cat lovers. According to the app's research, it is difficult for people with cats to find a date. Apparently they are overlooked and assumed to be “loners”. Tabby Dates will help those individuals find their perfect partner who are also cat lovers.

The official description of this Shark Tank business deal reads:

“Tabby is the best way for cat-lovers and cat owners to find a purrfect match, plan a cat-focused date, and learn about new cat products and treats! Tabby is for people with cats and people who want to get cats in the future.”

How does it work?


Like any app, Tabby Dates can be downloaded to one’s phone. It is available on iOS in the App Store and on Google Play. Once downloaded, go through the FAQs section which consists of dos and don’ts to use the app hassle-free.

According to the app’s site, the profile rules include:

  • Your Contact Information Details
  • About Your Tabby VIP Mempurrship
  • Any Offensive Language
  • Illicit or Illegal Activities
  • Promotion for Products or Services without written approval from Tabby.

Also, the minimum age requirement to access the app is 18 years. To know more about Tabby Dates, readers can go to its website —
