Do cats really have 9 lives?
14 May 07
Yes I heard about it before as some people believe in superstition that cats have nine lives because cats can take more risks and survive falls from high places. They are so flexible, their small size and low body weight soften the impact as they make contact with ground after falling from height. Inner ears of cats enable them with unusually keen sense of balance which is critical to their landing on their feet. I am curious to know about this number 9 it could have easily been 99. But I do not get the logic. May be somebody here will put light to this number "9" thing.
