Being ancient is a more essential quality of the cats than their 
"eachness," so it should remain the most tightly bound to it.

Let *X* = *tIQbogh vIghro'*/ancient cat/

Then *Hoch X* is /each X./

*Hoch tIQbogh vIghro'.*

You frequently ask about these scope issues. Figure out which elements 
are more closely bound together and mirror this in the grammar. The most 
tightly bound elements will be nested the most deeply.
