When to use Io?
I've noticed that some sentences start with Io an some do not. I know Io means I, so when are you supposed to start the sentence with Io and when can you just start with what you are doing?

You can always start a sentence with Io (If it begins with I). Io ho un gatto means I have a cat, but you can also say Ho un gatto, also meaning I have a cat. It's because you only say have with I, we, or they; she and he singularly don't have but has; she has, he has. She has a cat would be Lei ha un gatto or Ha un gatto ( he has a cat could also be Ha un gatto so that sometimes gets confusing). Does any of that make sense? I really hope it does. To sum it up you can say Ho un gatto meaning I have a cat and Io ho un gatto as well. This also works with voglio (want) and other words but I just used Ho because it's easy.
