Hi folks,

1.Is "a cat with nine lives" a phrase? How to use it?

He has spent most of his life in danger as the chief target of Israel. But, just like a cat with nine lives, Arafat escaped every time.

2.Could you explain "fair" in "fair share"?
No one goes through life without their fair share of problems.

Many thanks!
