Obsessed with cats and you're still single? There's a new app for that. 

Launching on International Cat Day (August 8), the new dating app made for cat people called Tabby is connecting cat lovers and owners over their common love for felines. 

According to a release (via PEOPLE), matches "will be able to meet each other, plan cat-friendly dates, get deals from cat companies, and share videos, photos, and stories all while their cats are in their element - at home." 

Statistically, cat owners are often passed over on dating apps simply because they own cats. A recent study found that women are less likely to swipe right on men posing with a cat in their online dating profiles. I have to be honest, I'm not surprised by those findings. I'm personally a dog person, but I know other women who have also swiped left on a guy solely because they own a cat. Yes, I admit I've done that many times. I'm allergic...

There's also a dating app for dog lovers called Dig, but I haven't checked that out yet. I have a feeling there's not a large enough dating pool on these niche apps for me to feel like it's really worth my time. 

Is Tabby something you'd try? Don't worry, I won't swipe left on you because I will certainly not be on Tabby.
