Not sure if it's an unlucky coincidence, but it happens very often that I get an audio clip right after I get the same phrase in a normal question. Kind of defeats the purpose if I can just recall the correct answer from my 10-second short term memory.

so does the "y" denotes possession? like an apostrophe 's would do so in English?

Yes. I would say it is somewhat closer to "of Kateřina" though for the reasons you will see later.
