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
