Bobby Flay Acquired a Kitty for the Opening of Gato

Before opening his Mediterranean-themed wonder emporium Gato, Bobby Flay adopted a Maine Coon cat named "Taco." As you may recall, the restaurant is named after a little red kitty that crossed Flay's path when he was visiting the space for the first time, so it sounds like the chef now thinks that cats are good luck charms.

This picture of Bobby Flay with his cat is basically perfect. But Flay will never be the king of cat selfies. That honor goes to Pok Pok Ny's Andy Ricker:
