Nine little kittens, each with nine lives!
It's a surprise how each of them thrives.
Two nearly drowned in the pool next door:
one caught between an old attic floor.
Two were trapped in a box overnight;
two got abscesses in a catfight.
Another fell down off a high roof;
the last just missed a horse's huge hoof.
More lives to go! This legend's foolproof!
