They do, actually, here's a photo of one http://www.anime.com/Cat_Returns/images/circle-01.jpg
There are two differences between the 3-word phrases "les chats boivent" and "le chat boit." (not boive). To put it in approximative English phonetics, it's like "leh sha bwahve" and "luh sha bwah." (no 'v' sound for the singular boit, and the t is silent). No difference in sound between chat and chats.
chats can also be male AND female cats together, whereas chattes is ONLY female cats
That would ordinarily be the translation of "some cats." If we are talking about all cats in general ("Cats drink tea") or a specific group of cats known to both the speaker and listener ("The cats drink tea"), it translates best to "Les chats" (or "les chattes" if it is only female cats). Does this sound right to you others?
