In english we say "sylvester the cat".

Is it possible to say this in a similar short phrase in klingon ? I
mean, without writing something as "the name of the cat is sylvester".

Initially, I thought of writing the obvious {silvester vIghro'}; after
all we do have {baS 'In} for "metal drum". So, I thought, why not say
"(the) sylvester cat" ?

On the other hand though, {baS 'In} can be translated as "drum of
metal". So, perhaps this would mean that {silvester vIghro'}
could/would mean "(the cat of sylvester)", which is quite different
from the intended "sylvester the cat" i.e. "the cat whose name is

Does anyone have any thoughts on this matter ?
