Cat only have one life, but they have a very high endurance. In the past i have seen a cat whose half of his body is flat to the road because he got run over by a car. but his head is still following my every movement.

Well its an expression about how cats are clever and able to survive in certain situations where it seems like they would not.

yea, i might think so too. my cat jumps from high places and lands without breaking a bone or falling flat on the face. my cat is a fat and fluffy one, and he could still perform such tricks.

Hi! Some people believe in the superstition that cats have 9 lives but actually they don't have many lives. Cats can survive to any injuries or accidents happens to them because their body posses many advantages to support themselves unlike to any other animals. This has been taught during my High School and I already forgot some details about this.
