I remember that my professor told me that in Brasil it's very common to hear "O meus pais" = My parents, A minha amiga = My friend. When you have a close relationship with a person, a way to demonstrate it, it is the use of possesives, ex. A Andreia tem que fazer uma tarefa (This means that you have a close friend named Andreia, and she has to do a homework)
Then it would be "Tu falas com teus gatos"
You have to agree "person/subject-possessive" / "possessive-noun". For tu uses "teu, teus, tua, tuas" / você - "seu, sua seus, suas" (the same for he/she).
You have to agree them: seu gato, seus gatos, sua gata, suas gatas.
Note: "Dele/dela/deles/delas" don't follow the rule "possessive-conjugated-the-same-as-number"...
So you have:
- His car = - Seu carro / o carro dele;
- His cars = seus carros / os carros deles;
- Her bag = sua bolsa / a bolsa dela;
- Her bags = suas bolsas / as bolsas dela;
- Their bags = suas bolsas / as bolsas delas.
So, if you use dela for her it will never come in plural, for their it will always be deles/delas.
