"My cat is nine years old."
And isn't it wo de mao shi jiu sui, ?? I've never seen it without a proper connector
I was just wondering the same. I really felt like it should have shi or maybe you (in spanish they say he has x years)
Wooooow!!!! Coool!!the character mao (cat) is very similar to a cat's face and ...!!!
I'm trying to figure out sentence structure. The first two symbols both mean my or mine, don't they? My mine cat is nine years old? I'm always missing one when I go to write the sentences.
的 means ownership. Think of it like the 's in english. 我的 means mine but if you were talking about the cat's milkbowl you would say 猫的. It's a pretty universal character you'd put it after any noun/pronoun to indicate ownership.
