Do Cats Really Have 9 Lives?

Most cats live for about 14 years, although some have been known to live to the age of 30 and even beyond.

do cats have 9 lives

The myth that a cat has 9 lives probably came about because of its ability to escape from many dangerous situations without harm. Cats have good memories, keen eyesight, and exceptional senses of smell and hearing.

These combine with their swiftness and agility to help them out of danger.

So even though a cat may escape with its life many times, it still lives only once, just as any other animal.

    My first time to this site, makes me feel ill, (part reading), what some people, will do to cats, or any animal. No animal is stupid, only people who think they are.! Give them love and attention, and you will get it back, A cat is a cat, but to its owner, they are very special, in so many ways. I have two cats, and love them dearly, and have much fun, watching them, and playing with one of them. The other cat is ill, took it to Vet, not sure yet if she, Puss Puss, will recover. but she loves to be cuddled.

    God Bless, and Love to all animal lovers.

    I hate cats and always will. In my country people who keep cats are said to be evil. Give me one good reason to love an animal that is used by witches and wizards!!!!!!!!!! Say whatever you like I don’t care

    i think cats are free from insurance payment. Then they shouldn’t use the road as their house.
