He was just hunting for the mouse )))
It's right there under your paw, Mister Cat!
What image was there?
This cat is building quite a name for itself throughout these series...
it was a very expensive computer and i poured beer over it, so it broke.. story of my life :D hahaha
Ant then you blamed the cat...
This is a good moment to learn some bad words in Russian!
Cat " I wasn't there......It just slipped off the table...anyway it was ugly and what sort of stupid name is Apple.....you're welcome"
The cat is deeply hurt you would doubt its word :'(
That's what ou get for buying apple.
The pronunciation of дорогой is wrong. The stress should be at the end. дорогОЙ
мой покойный кот
Press F to pay respects
Why do we use "и" instead of "а" to separate the clauses here?
I assume because you're not contrasting.
Could you also say "Это был очень дорогой компьютер, и мой кот сломал его"? What decides the word order there?
Because the new information is that it is broken so that goes on the end?
I cannot remember exactly how many years this small violin has been talking about his broken computer. It has to be close to 6 years. Recycled troll content
So do we treat undeclinable это as masculine? Был vs было?
The masculine word in the sentence is "компьютер", and that's what defines the form of "быть".
What is the purpose of его here? And my cat he broke it? Can его be omitted?
The "его" is the "it" in "my cat broke it"—it refers to the computer! Not totally sure, but I don't think it can be omitted.
You are correct, it means "it" and it can't be omitted. Without it the sentence would be incomplete, just like "...and my cat broke." would be in English.
Ok great, thanks both!
