No, I think Lieven has it right. The second sentence not only makes no
sense, it doesn't say what you want it to say. It's not a matter of
preference. You want to say that you see a cat, the chancellor, and
nothing else. You construct the noun phrase *vIghro' Qang je*/cat and
chancellor,/ then you modify that to say that that's all you saw:
*vIghro' Qang je neH*/only the cat and the chancellor./
