This sounds like the regency romance novels I've been reading. Thanks for writing it. Back to the question:
I would not pass because I am a cat, and you know what they are like. I would not go hunting because I am too lazy. I may follow some of the other protocols – if I feel like it.
Then, cats treat everyone the same. I would be impressed by things nobody would believe and not by things that impresses everybody else.
Imagine what my poor managers and professors had to go through.
