"The cat drinks its milk."
Translation:Die Katze trinkt ihre Milch.
In German the cat - die Katze is female. Only "Die Katze trinkt ihre Milch." is right. If you are talking about a male cat you would say: "Der Kater trinkt seine Milch." Also: If you don't know the actual gender of the cat you are talking about you say "die Katze" by default.
Thanks, I guess I didn't understand that just from reading the "Tips" tab. I wish there was a little more explanation of the rules on this site. Sometimes I feel like I'm blindly trying to guess the rule through trial and error. But hey, I guess that's what these discussions are for.
It is ihre. This is because 'the cat' is a feminine noun, so we refer to the cat as 'her'
The ending of the possesive changes with the gender of the noun that your subject is possessing. Because milk is a feminine noun, you add an ending of -e to the possesive. If it were a masculine noun, the possesive would end in -en and neutral wouldnt have an ending.
