vIghro' = cat like animal

I'm fairly sure  [vIghro' So'taH] or [vIghro' So'lI'] would be "hidding cat"
if So' can be used adjectively..

I don't think hide can take an object??  If it can then what about [vIghro'
So'ta'lu'bogh] .  That is probably completely incorrect.

Just thought.... What about using [ngaSwI'] for container... which would
mean [ngaSwI'Daq 'oH vIghro''e'] is hopefully "cat in the container" (The
cat it is in the container)

Or what about just [ taH'a' vIghro'] "Cat survive?"

Something to pull apart anyway.
