51. I think it's just because they're such tough little buggers

I've seen feral cats run over by cars get up and run away, appearing again a few days later with a limp and a dirty coat but otherwise intact. Cats are the ultimate survivors, crawling out from under charred rubble after forest fires have burned houses down with singed whiskers but approaching humans because they want food. They've survived non pet baggage compartments on international flights, shipping containers from one continent to another, wars, and just about anything else that gets thrown their way.

Oh, they can be killed. It's just not that easy.
