  • Hmmm I don't often ask questions, thought there was another place to put the "body". Ok, so if cats=more then one cat, and cat's=belonging to the cat, what do you use for "the cat is"? Is it still cat's? Or am I wrong on the other ones?

  • cat's for the cat is =) "The cat's in the back yard"...but I think it sounds better to say "The cat is in the backyard."

  • cats = more than one cat
    cat's = the tail, nose, hair etc, belonging to the cat.

    s alone shows there is more than one.
    's shows ownership.

  • This one ALWAYS confused me. I can always spin a way to make the cat own something. Like the cats in the back yard. Well the cat is in its yard therefore it belongs to the cat.
