An Ancient Cat Proberb

An ancient proverb claimed, “A cat has nine lives. For three he plays, for three he strays and for the last three he stays.”

Even William Shakespeare referred to the nine lives myth in his play Romeo and Juliet.\

The number 9 (nine) is a magical number.

Cats were also worshiped and feared in ancient times. They believed cats were magical.

The ancient Greeks said that the number nine referred to the trinity of all trinities- and is a mystic number which invokes tradition and religion.

Others believe it is because cats seem to always land on their feet. That is because cats are also known for their dexterity and agility.

Maybe another reason is cats are one the most independent animal out there.

Just like hoomans,
Cats have just one life to live too!
