For anyone confused: to find the partitive case of words that end with -nen, just replace the -nen with -sta, I believe.

Why not norjalaista, then? I would guess that one cat cannot be partitive since it is the totality of what there is, while fron two onwards you get a quantity and, hence, a partitive

Yksi doesn't trigger the noun to take the partitive case.
