PDX Pet Design

pdx pet designTara and Jason O'Mara pitch their cat toy business, PDX Pet Design, to the Sharks in Shark Tank episode 813. Their flagship product is SHRU, a self-described “cat companion.” The O'Mara's are cat lovers who thought most regular cat toys didn't provide enough stimulation for their feline friends. The SHRU “is designed to mimic and respond like a living animal, keeping kitties kitty mentally and physically stimulated.”

The O'Maras started their business with a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised $170,779. The crowd funding community (and their cats) loved the egg-shaped electronic toy with the feathery tail. Apparently, it keeps cats entertained for hours. Each SHRU costs $98 and the O'Maras began shipping over 5,000 units in the fall of 2016.

They have another product, the Licki Brush, in the works that's eligible for “pre-order.” The Licki Brush is a brush that mimics a cat's lick. This allows humans, whom cats view as bigger cats, to engage in the social activity of licking and grooming.

Will Sharks want cats in the Tank?bucks?

PDX Pet Design Shark Tank Recap

Tara and Jason will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Grenier, and Robert Herjavec that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on PDX Pet Design will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
