How does a cat in a box fit in with Star Trek?

So' is "hide".  It is not "hidden".

Did the cat hide itself or did someone/something hide it?

Because "hide" is not a stative verb it can't be used as an adjective, so we
will need to use the -bogh suffix (Read TKD p63).

There is an animal that is similar to a cat.  vIghro' (KGT)

If the cat hid itself,        So''eghbogh vIghro'
If someone else hide the cat,  vIghro' So'lu'bogh
