I'm afraid I can't understand this.

The way I understand the sentence {vIghro' tIQ wIjon 'e' neH DaSaH},
is "there is an event (our capturing the ancient cat), and you care
only about that event". How is this different from "You care that it
is only the case that we capture the ancient cat" ?

I'm not arguing that the way I understand this is correct; I genuinely
can't "feel" any difference between the two.
