What do we understand From the last sentence?
It's he asking to cat something or the cafe's name is "cafe cat."?

Hello Metin,

When Johnny says 'Is this the new café cat?' he's asking himself and the others, in a not completely serious way, if the cat that was attracted by the fish might stay around and either live or spend a lot of time at the café. 

All the best,

Thank you very much

dat was great :D

When he said: That explains the fish, he means that the cat will explain what happened to fish ( kidding) or the cat is the reason ? of course both seems correct. Thanks for explaining!

Hello ManouchehrSoltani,

What I imagined when I listened was that Tony had either not found the fish (because the cat had eaten it) or that he had found some of the fish eaten. This is not explicitly stated, but Tony's statement (That explains the fish) would make perfect sense in that situation. In any case, yes, he's saying the cat is the cause of the mess, not a burglar!

Best wishes,
