Last December, the sequel to the spin-off film Puss in Boots (2011), Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, was released. It was the perfect Christmas movie for every Puss fan, adults included. The legendary Puss has stolen many hearts for his cute yet fierce character.
We follow the famous hero and outlaw’s journey through salvation, sacrifices, and love in the latest installment. As Puss has used up eight of his nine lives, he was advised to retire from adventuring. Yet, the fearless Puss wasn’t easy to bend. He continued to help those who were in need. Sadly, along the way, he often neglected himself.
Puss had a panic attack in the movie
What perked the netizen’s interest was this particular scene in the film. We would never think Puss’s strong bravado would shatter at this moment.
Meanwhile, Puss in Boots has the most accurate depiction of a panic attack in media I’ve seen— this is EXACTLY how it feels. You can’t think, can’t speak, and sometimes even the sound of a loved one trying to help gets drowned by your heart beating out of your chest. https://t.co/aP2RHE6w2A pic.twitter.com/PNU3yMhqY2

In the movie, Puss experienced a panic attack. Netizens claimed it was an accurate depiction of that dark moment.
Puss was having a hard time breathing. Although Perrito, the therapy dog, was calling his name, he couldn’t speak.
Perito used deep pressure therapy to calm Puss’s panic attack
What makes the movie even more applause-worthy is when Perrito uses a technique that helps Puss through his panic attack!
Novasaur (@NNovasaur) mentioned that deep pressure therapy was a big helping hand for Puss during that dire time.
For your information, deep pressure therapy or Deep Pressure Stimulation (DPS) is firm but gentle squeezing, hugs or holding that relaxes the nervous system. The pressure can be applied with the hands, special massage tools, or any product you can wear around yourself.
Netizens couldn’t stop raving about the movie’s attention to detail
Generally, everyone couldn’t stop praising the film for including a significant portrayal of a panic attack. We are still in awe too.
Puss in Boots: The Last Wish sets the bar high
Any form of media has a massive impact on viewers. Especially these days, when technology is the first medium everyone sorts out to, it’s vital for movie makers, writers or public figures to impart beneficial knowledge like Puss in Boots did.
Not only do we learn something new, but we can also utilise that information in some parts of our lives.
We’re always down for educational and fun creative works like this. We hope there’ll be more to come!
