No the nine lives theory is just a story it ndoes not literally mean they have nine lives. It stems from the fact that a cat is very good at landing on its feet when it falls etc and so seems to get out of trouble.

It just means that they seem to be very lucky and also very good at getting out of scrapes etc.

By the way good for you, saving a ill or injured cat is a wonderful thing to do. Too many people are horrible and cruel to animals, there have to be others to redress the balance.
