Tabby — a new dating app — wants to help you find someone to spend the rest of your nine lives with.

The new project from sisters Leigh and Casey Isaacson is an offshoot of their previous, canine-focused app Dig, launched in 2008. The platform will allow users to build profiles spotlighting not just themselves but also their furry, oft-judgmental housemates so other users can paw-swipe right. Matches can chat, set up playdates and determine how well they might get along if they had to share a litter box. And they gave SheKnows a first look at the inside of their app.
