What is a Kater and have we been taught that?
I checked. Apparently, "der Kater" means "the hangover"
Yes, colloquially. It literally means 'tom cat'. See Lexht's response below.
Der Kater is another term for Cat?
Why is it Die shouldn't have it be Das
No, why should it be? Die Katze and die Milch are both feminine.
Tiere saufen. Menschen trinken.
I wrote die and it crossed that out and corrected it to die...what am I missing here?
Maybe a programming error?
I've noticed that too. Whenever I type in something, I says I am wrong and the correction is exactly what I put in. It must be a bug.
I entered "Die Katze" and it corrected it to "Der Kater". Which is which?
That did not happen with me.
Die Kater? I was never taught that :|
Der Kater is tom cat. It specifies a male cat because the generic form for cat is feminine. Likewise, one can say Die Hundin to specify a female dog.
If you run into words you don't know, you can always look them up. LEO-Wörterbuch is a great Ger-Eng dictionary, with a free app as well as the website
I thought that animals saufen instead of "trinken" like humans, the same as animals fressen nicht essen.
If there is a special word for animals eating, why isn't there a special word for animals drinking?
Languages aren’t always logical.... however, in this case I think there used to be one, but it’s not in common usage now. I believe it’s saufen, IIRC.
