I could find only one example of either method, a NON-CANON line by Qov from DISCOVERY:
QongtaHvIS HeghDI' SuvwI', 'oynot, Hom je neH yugh.
A warrior who dies in his sleep is no more than flesh and bone.
(DSC/Qov "Battle At the Binary Stars")
From: tlhIngan-Hol <tlhingan-hol-bounces at lists.kli.org> On Behalf Of SuStel
I see only a cat and the chancellor
vIghro' Qang je neH vIlegh
vIghro neH Qang neH je vIlegh

Yes, you're right. I noticed that too, while writing the initial message.
But other than that, does this matter come down to just personal preference ?
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.
