Later the same day, the TV personality revealed that he settled on a name for his new pet. “So, due to his love of the wok, I’ve decided to name him ‘Stir-fry,’” he captioned a pic of the feline sitting in a bowl on the table.

Two weeks ago, Brown posted a pic of several cats outside of his office on May 12. He wrote, “Something cute just emerged under my office porch #intimeformothersday.”

The Iron Chef America star also owns two dogs: a Cardigan Welsh Corgi Daisy and a mixed breed pup named Sparky. He told Fetch Magazine in 2013 that he’s always lived in a household of animals. “I have never not had pets,” he said. “I grew up with lizards, turtles, tarantulas, dogs and cats. My most beloved was a opossum. Another kid brought her to school in his lunch box. I traded my Boy Scout knife for her.”
