Kitty Softpaws is the deuteragonist of Puss in Boots. She is Puss' love interest and later, mate.
Cool and sleek, Kitty knows how to be alluring without ever being a damsel in distress. She can be impatient but never falters under pressure.
At first she cared only about the score, but that all changes when she meets Puss. She's incredibly sneaky, suave, smart, beautiful, charming and alluring to all, especially Puss.
Role in Film Edit
Kitty is a cat of talent and manipulation. One night, Puss tries to rob Jack and Jill, Kitty (in a mask) seems to be after beans too.
Things don't work well, they end up in a cat club. It's dance night so instead of just boxing the two cats duke it out with dance.
Puss is impressed by the stranger but after spilling milk on his boots, he whacks her with a guitar. She takes off the masks and a stunned Puss releases that she's female.
He's infatuated with this kindred spirit. Kitty charms and attempts to kiss Puss, but he refused and explains his history with Humpty, but she falls asleep.
Eventually Puss is convinced to help her steal the eggs, for the sake of his hometown and mother (human woman who loved him as a kitten).
During the adventure she and Puss bond. She explains the sad story of how her previous owners took her claws away, Puss comforts her with the knowledge that cat-people are crazy.
