Nine Lives

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!
