By far, the best sentence yet in the crazy department!

Just curious: is a cat's fur typically called "gruaig" or "fionnadh"? Or is "fionnadh" used more for items made of fur (like coats?) As a cat myself, I really need to know.

    I've never heard gruaig being used for cat's fur.
    Fox fur = fionnadh sionnaigh, sionnach = fox.
    Rabbit fur = clúmh coinín.

    Could this also be "There's dyed hair on my cat."?

    I translated this to be "There is dyed hair on my cat" since "ag" is usually used to indicated possession.

    Not for gruaig. In Irish, we say gruaig ar where in English we say "have hair".

    Do you say "hair" in the singular even for animals?
