Tinseltown’s most touted Tabbies and Toms traipsed the red carpet this week—occasionally stopping to scratch or chase something sparkly before attending a special screening of the DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc October 28th release, “Puss in Boots.” Headlining the event was the suave and sophisticated Spaniard himself, Antonio Banderas, who has supplied the voice of the legendary hero since Puss’ first onscreen appearance in the global hit, “Shrek 2,” in 2004.
The “felines only” unspooling on the lot of Paramount Pictures brought the crème de la crème of industry kitties before the kliegs, including such breed standards as Cat Blanchett, Don Cheetah, Leonardo di Catrio, Zach Galifurnakis, the Real Housecats of Beverly Hills, Kitty Perry, and Justin Timberlynx. “It was a purrfectly enjoyable event—I’m so glad I got up from my nap in time to make it,” one attendee was overheard saying.
DreamWorks Animation’s “Puss in Boots” bounds its way into theatres nationwide on Friday, October 28, 2011.
