I came for the comments but didn't expect this beauty. Bless you.

What exactly do you guys smoke before coming up with those phrases..?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mariannava

That's the cat I need :-)

fun...

just to remind people : alcohol can be lethal to cats !


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AugustLindemer

Alcohol can be lethal to every living organism.

I have drunk so much beer, and my friends even more... so at this point, not so much.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sryelle

Ok, I will drink it for the cat then. But seriously, good safety point

Ah, this must be the companion sentence to the one about "What does one do if one's dog is drunk?"

It must be feline good... (I'll let myself out.)

note to self: vundet, not fundet.

How would you say "wine bottle"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vlandre

I don't see any "of" here.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DagurT

They don't use "of" sometimes. Like a bottle of wine is "en flaske vin", and a cup of coffee is "en kop koffe."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/geometry667721

It's between "bottle" and "wine" ;-)

In all seriousness: Try to translate a sentence not by translating word by word but by expressing the same meaning as closely as possible in the other language. That will make your translations sound much more "natural".

How?A cat can't win wine


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/potatoemouse

maybe it won the ‘best cat in show’ category at whatever the cat equivalent of crufts is.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/geometry667721

If bears can cook and ducks can read, then why should we surprised that now cats can gamble? Anything is possible in Duolingo Danish :-)

Why can't the answer be "my cat won ..." rather than "my cat has won ..."?

The audio is bad. It is wrong to say as DUO does.. Min kat har vundet en flaske vin. The intonation is wrong. The stress should be on the word ... vin, not on the word .. flaske.
