Somehow a legend began,
Most likely started by man,
That cats all down the line,
Have not one life, but nine.
Do they know that this silly notion,
Has caused quite a commotion?
No cat would tell this lie
and I will tell you the reason why.
The cats I know, say but one word,
’tis shorter even than that of a black bird.
It answers any question just fine
My go-to response is always, “nein.”
