Ah, I wouldn’t have gotten that sense from either the Klingon or the English without further explanation. In English, it would have to be something like “The only time I saw the cat was five minutes ago” or in Klingon something like {wa'logh neH vIghro' vIleghpu'; vagh tup neH vIleghpu'} for me to understand that meaning right away.
