What is the difference between "твой кот" and "Твои кот".
I have had this mistake marked wrong twice in a row. :(
Твои is used when the possession is plural (коты), whilst твой is used when it's singular (кот).
Твой кот- one cat, cat-boy and he is yours, sorry : it is yours, OK?
Твои коты- it is plural! Two cat, they are boys. And they are yours. Sorry my mistakes!
so then what was твоя ?
Твоя кошка= yours lady-cat.
is кошка lady-cat?
Yes, " кот" has a masculine connotation, whereas "кошка" has a feminine one. "Кошка" can also refer to a cat whose gender is unknown or unimportant.
Спасибо, добрый человек :)
What is a tomcat? Is it something American?
I don't think anyone in America uses "tomcat," except maybe veterinarians. We use "cat" generically if we don't know its gender. When referring to my cats, I say I have "one male cat and one female cat."
Lady- cat- Кошка- девица: I have three cats- two lady-cat and one tomcat.
Funny how I learnt a new English word by following a Russian language course.
This happens to me the whole time...
The word "tomcat" specifically refers to a male cat, not a female cat. I agree that it is not a commonly used word.
