Please could someone give me a name?

In a previous home we had a new neighbour move in next door with 27!!!  The cottage was one and a half rooms upstairs and the same down!!!  Within a few months most of the cats had legged it to the nearby farms where they had much happier lives (and considerably more food)

Please could someone give me a name?

Bro has just lost some carp from his pond to otters teaching their youngsters to fish - but there's a whole river, some marshes and a decoy pond full of fish - they can share them
