Puss in Boots: The Last Wish was released three months ago and is still being adored by fans. However, one scene in particular was appreciated more than others.

You've probably seen this scene from the recently released Puss in Boots: The Last wish, which is all over Instagram right now.

At first glance, there is nothing special about it, but many fans are grateful to the creators for such an accurate portrayal of a panic attack on screen.

Usually, we see topics such as mental health in movies that are mostly aimed at an adult audience. It was all the more unexpected to see a scene of a panic attack in a children's animated film about a heroic cat with an epee.

Puss was remembered by audiences as a cheerful, unflappable hero who could handle anything, but this time the creators of the cartoon showed that even Puss have weaknesses, and that is perfectly normal.

In the movie's now-notorious scene, the cat is struck with intense fear when he thinks he has the last of nine lives left.

He slides to the ground, breathing rapidly, and it becomes clear to the audience that what he is experiencing is nothing more than a panic attack. Only his friend, the little dog Perrito, who puts his head on his belly, helps Puss to calm down.

Fans also acknowledge that the scene is believable, from the behavior of the cat to the correct way to calm him down with the help of a friend.

"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. And then you have perrito claming him down with deep pressure therapy," Twitter user NNovasaur commented.

Although the animated film is aimed at a children's audience, critics and fans have appreciated this adult element.

The scene was not presented head-on, but was a touching example of how to support your friend in a similar situation, just by showing that you're there for them.
