That should give you a hint, maybe the pata he is talking about is a female duck. LOL

Don't laugh. I thought that he might be reading a child's picture book and the pata was a female duck (hen'). Male's a drake, what's a female?

También he oído que a los Patricios le dicen Pato, así que Pata también puede ser Patricia. (me imagino)

No vayas a meter la pata means don't screw up.

It seems to me that he is trying to translate the sentence:

Hay una pata que vive en Tiajuana...

and that he wants to know what pata means in this context. (I do not know why he did not provide the original Spanish sentence.)

It usually refers to the leg, paw, hoof, etc. of an animal. It can mean a furniture leg, however, it would appear to have some more colloquial usage in your sentence. Can we have some more context...the previous sentence or two? We need to know what it refers to: a person, vegetable, animal or mineral?

You could save Heidita the trouble and change your title to somehow include the word pata.
