I love when Shrek discovers Puss in his fat stage in Shrek Forever After when he can’t get into his kitty condo and just slides down the scratching post.

Laura Merucci - 10/18/2011

When Shrek and Donkey meet Puss and Donkey wants to leave, he does the adorable face so they can’t leave him behind! My cat does the same thing before he attacks.

karnettas2002 - 10/18/2011

In Shrek Forever After, when his head gets stuck in the scratching post (from being so fat) and slides down with his pink bow around his neck.

My favorite is in the commercial for this movie when chases after the laser pointer. I did that to my cats all of the time the “old school” way….with a flashlight.

Ryan Ravitz - 10/18/2011

I miss read what I was suppose to do here..lol

where hes playing (batting) with the disco ball in front of everyone

Raquel Jacobs - 10/18/2011

My favorite Puss moment is on Shrek the Halls when he was telling a story to the Shrek and Donkey babies about Santa “Claws”. Then when they cut back to Puss after the story he was playing with the batting around the ornament on the Christmas tree. He was so ashamed! I love it!

BTW: I liked your facebook page and I’ll have my friend do the same. Hope I win. Good luck to everyone!!!

When Puss in Boots stars up at his foes with an INNOCENT, WIDE-EYED expression, this softens their hearts.

slimjon - 10/18/2011

That cat has some great one liners… like when Donkey drinks the beauty potion and Puss says “you still look like an ass to me”

If this movie is 1/2 as funny as the original Shrek, it will be great!!

David Carlson - 10/18/2011

Reading all the other posts, I have to agree with all of them are great! Especially when Puss eyes get big & innocent looking.

xodancequeen - 10/18/2011

When puss in boots (in a commercial for the new movie) says “you want pants that are comfortable, that make you look good, that’s why you want ….No pants at all! All I need are the boots!” hahahahaha Only puss would say that!

My favorite moment is when Puss in Boots goes from a sword swinging warrior to a precious little kitty in a matter of seconds. Who would hurt that little cute face? 🙂

brendavt - 10/18/2011

My favorite moment was when he gained so much weight and wobbled when he walked.

Chris Giroux - 10/18/2011

I took my 3yo to meet Puss in Boots at the mall a couple weeks ago. My son shakes Puss’s hand and asks, “are you cat in boots?”

Akbar Juster - 10/18/2011

Mr. Puss has quite an adventure in this movie! must be more interesting role than in Shrek

1soccermom - 10/18/2011

I don’t have a good comment to post and I didn’t want to tell a tall tale…I would just like to win the tickets. I’ll try to post 2 comments next time.

Adrienne Austin - 10/18/2011

I liked th pudgy Puss in Shrek 4 because he reminds me of my own lazy, pudgy (but cute) kitty.

NORMA - 10/19/2011

My favorite scene is when after Shrek and Donkey drink the potion, Puss is cleaning himself. Fiona asks hesitantly, “Shrek?” Puss replies, “I could be for you.”

billy0806 - 10/19/2011

When puss 1st meet Sherk
