"The cat is not mine."
Translation:Il gatto non è mio.
Yeah i speak a bit of italian and i know that thats correct i confirmed it with my friend who speaks full italian
You only put the (il) if you are geving direct owner ship- ie. My catg il mio gatto, so you are directly stating "my cat"
I said 'Non e' il mio gatto' surely this is the same thing as 'Il gatto non e' il mio' ?
I think the difference is that your sentence means "It is not my cat," whereas the other sentence means "The cat is not mine." Same meaning, different sentence construction. :)
