Ok. If someone were to ask, "Hey, do think I could jump off the Empire State building and live?" You could say, "You don't stand a Cat's Chance!"

I've never heard this expression. We say that a cat has "nine lives" (or nine chances), so it doesn't make any sense to me.

I've only seen the slightly longer phrase "a cat in hell's chance" http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/have+a+cat+in+hell's+chance I agree with Taylor's example.
