Ella odia los gatos.

She hates cats. Not THE cats. Why "los gatos" then?

Hola Michael

It doesn't work the same in English and Spanish. When you have a subject or a direct object, in Spanish you generally need the article:

Me gustan los gatos.

I like cats.

Los gatos son bonitos.

Cats are pretty.

Odio los gatos.

I hate cats.

Saludos
