I don't know about you but Arimaa Notation is confusing. So I have a new idea for Arimaa notation First representation of pieces.
E=Elepehant
C-Camel
H-Horse
c-Cat
D-Dog
r-Rabbit
.
Setup, Same as before.
Movement:
Ea3 Eb3 Ec3 Ed3, example of movement notation.
Push or Pull:
EpCc5
Elephant pushes or pulls Camel to c5.
Capture:  
EptCf3
 
Elephants pushes and trapes Camel to f3.
 
This notation system will make understanding Arimaa notation more easy

The problem with lowercase c for cat is that lowercase letters are for silver pieces.
I think you'll get used to the notation. At start it might sound weird but after a while it's normal.
Though some players indeed like and use different notations when describing moves. As long as it's clear what move you mean you can use any notation system you like. Smiley

Interesting. Although in some positions EpCc5 may not be sufficient. Imagine the elephant at b4 and opponent cats at c4 and b5. We need to specify which cat is pushed.  
 
About 10 years ago we were discussing possible ways to shorten the Arimaa notation and make it easier to read. You might find this discussion interesting.
