Not to let the "cat out of the bag," but apparently Bobby Flay is a legitimate cat lover! His famous cat, Nacho Flay, is an orange Maine Coon who even has his own superstar Instagram account.


No matter what you think of his personality or his cooking, Bobby Flay just earned some major cat lady points by professing his love of cats on CBS Sunday Morning.

Bobby Flay is all of us.

No, but really.

He tells CBS Sunday Morning that his first cat was an orange tabby named Pumpkin. Says young Flay: "I wanted him because he matched my hair!" Ah, the simple life. Although, it seems that some things never change.

How could you resist this face? Give him whatever he wants!

His NYC restaurant is named GATO and was inspired by a "mysterious" orange cat he saw while waiting on a real estate broker to see the restaurant space. According to the restaurant website, "The cat has not been seen since, but his initial appearance has made a permanent impression." Seems like Flay has a serious magnetism for orange cats.

Here he is on a Tasting Table video making Super Bowl nachos with Nacho:
