What's the difference between "A cat is beautiful" and "beautiful cat"? I thought I'd gotten that wrong before when I translated without the to be verb :/

חתול יפה A beautiful cat

חתול הוא יפה A cat is beautiful

החתול יפה The cat is beautiful

החתול היפה The beautiful cat

I second that - just a minute ago "A duck is beautiful" was correct. Why not with the cat??

A cat is beautiful - חתול הוא יפה

I have the same problem and several people have given me explanations that just don't hold up :( I guess I will try to guess what they want and not feel bad when I have the wrong one - let me know when you figure it out.

I answered A handsome tomcat, whicj was rejected. Isn't tomcat a better translation of חתול?
