Do cats really have nine lives?

I have a friend who's cat fell from third floor, had a difficile operation, and survived:D and it is very happy and active and I'm glad for her. Do you think that cats manage to survive because of their nine lives?

Nah, although I do think that cats happen to be very intelligent, except for their insistence on crossing busy streets. They seem to sense when their master is coming home, when they are going to be fed, among other things. They also develop an attachment to their owners and learn to coexist in a multicat household. And as for cats having nine lives, I seriously doubt it. Their overall health and activities will ultimately determine their lifespan.

I dont think cats really have "9 lives" but they are really tough. It'l take a lot to get rid of a cat (which is good)
