I kinda think there is no Klingon word for "kitten." Perhaps one way to approach this is to consider what the Universal Translator would do. We know that English speakers hear a Klington talk about his "targ." While Klingons treat targs very much like humans treat dogs--including eating them--the UT says "targ" not "dog."
I bet if you were telling a Klingon about how cute your adorable wittle kitty witty woockums was, he would probably hear the UT say "kitten" (and then he would kill you).
There are plenty of alien creatures that have Earth counterparts, in the which case they are referred to as such, e.g., Hupyrian beetle (in Ferengi snuff). But where there is no real similarity to Earth creatures, the UT will simply use the native word.
"Gagh" is a dish made from "serpent worm," so when a Klingon says "gagh" he is talking about food not worms. Like "steak" vs. "cow."
I'm just saying.
