"They are cats."
Translation:Αυτές είναι γάτες.

My simple understanding is this: if the NOUN is a female noun, then you use "αυτες" and if the NOUN is a male noun, then you use "αυτοι." So you would say: (1) "αυτες οι γατες" because the noun "cat" (γατα) is a female noun and (2) "αυτοι οι σκυλοι" because the noun "dog" (σκυλος) is a male noun.
I understand that αυτές here is because γάτες is feminine plural, but what if we see some kids (παιδιά, neuter plural) at a costume party and they are dressed up as cats?
Would it be correct to say "Αυτά είναι γάτες"? Or maybe even "Αυτοί είναι γάτες", if some men are dressed up as cats. Or even weirder; say two kids are in a big shared costume of a cat in which the two can fit in, and one gets to be the left side and the other one the right side. Could this be "Αυτά είναι μία γάτα", since the two kids are dressed up as one cat? Would these sentences be acceptable and correct in such cases?
It may sound silly but in Spanish it actually works haha but I'm no native Greek speaker, so I must ask
