Dani has made up a short guide for assessing the 'Come-Pat-Ability' of a Cat. Mostly it's a work in pictures, but there are some aspects that require the written word.
Q. What is your Primary Parent's first name?
A. If it's anything other than 'Pat', you're already on shaky ground.
Q. What is your Pet Name for your Primary Parent?
A. If it's anything other than 'Pat', you're in the dog house.
This is because your parent has demonstrated that they choose not to respond to you unless you use the name THEY want you to use, and the odds are still stacked against you numerically that it's Pat (even though Pat is generally acknowledged to be THE most popular moniker).
Here are some statistics based on the U.S. population which support these assertions:
Efurry cat deserves to have their parent come running when they yell "Come Pat!". It is generally accepted that we are to be servants to our cat, so rather than having this command issued by the human, it is reserved solely for felines.
Dogs, on the other paw, are only too willing to come running when their human pack leader calls. And they will generally respond to just about anything. Dani loves dogs but it's a whole different culture.
So if you know what's in your best interests, you will follow these guidelines as best you can, so your cat will not CANCEL YOU!
Note: Cancellation may be accompanied by additional punitive measures such as freefalling feline eliminations. And those voids just keep on coming (they're hard to avoid).
