Hey I thought u might be interested to know that there actually is a movie based on the first version of puss and boots u talked about. I remember watching it when I was little and unfortunately I've had no luck finding it again but maybe you would have better luck. (I think it's based on the one u were talking about I just remember it was an old version, but as u were talking about it it sounded exactly alike, who knows might be something to look into 🤷‍♀️)

I think the original,because it leaves the initial moral intact, which may have been unpopular among those of higher social standing. I think when considering a moral - one must also consider the finality and hopelessness that one must have felt when low in a social order. This was not a capitalist society, it was a feudal society which is evident in the importance of a well-dressed cat giving a tribute to the king. (If the man's cat was well dressed it spoke highly of the man himself). He did not own land, his family were likely serfs and pinned to a social standing that would have been impossible to get past without an impossible windfall. Thus the moral becomes - do not be afraid to honor those below you, for one day the people you honor may be the doorway into an honor that would have seemed beyond even wildest dreams for the day. It could even be seen as a subtle protest to caste system which people seem to forget how oppressive it was.

Could Paralt have been satirizing the social conventions centered around boots? By making a cat, dressed only in boots, able to get an audience with the king simply because the cat is wearing boots and has a gift it seems absurd. So could that addition have been intentional to show how ridiculous the idea around people’s shoes are?

Moral of the fox story: if you’re going to apply pressure on your target by spilling the beans. Make sure to stash away vital evidence which will be exposed in the event you should die. And let your mark know about that setup. Life insurance is key

Here's a couple of morals that I could apply to this - don't immediately kill something potentially helpful, and sometimes relying on the help of a friend can get you places.

I swear I always thought puss in boots & Dick Whittingon were the same thing, I was wrong. Possible though that Dick Whittington was the inspiration as he lived 1354–1423 & the first text of his story was written down in 1600?

you missed one called the cat and the fiddler. it's basically the same story except he is left a fiddle by his dying mother and when the time comes for him to go out on his own he is given his father's favorite cat and told to treat it respectfully. the story goes on from there and is slightly more positive in the fact that there is less lying and the prontagonist actually has to work by way of playing his enchanted fiddle for people the cat sets up to listen to the boy and give donations to him. eventually, the lord of the land hears of this fiddler and asks him to play for his family with the promise of if he is as good as the people say then the lord will let his daughter who has become infatuated with the fiddler and his cat to marry him.

I see the moral as being an encouragement to proactively use one's mind. The two older sons shall only ever have what they were gifted yet Puss, taking advantage of his human companion, used his wits to improve his situation. It's the opposite of that bullshit saying "good things come to those who wait". Good things come to those who work for them and working smarter is better than working harder.

Nah, dressing snazzy and being a quick thinker isn't the moral of the story, the moral of the story is you gotta befriend a complete fucking sociopath. The cat didn't help the young man because he was just a baller, the dude was pretty decent for him, he felt a little bad... but can a cat become a king? Fuck no. So what's the next best thing? Install a king and have him eternally in debt to you. Puss was fuckin extreme, he literally threatened to kill a whole village (or more) of people if a single one of them didn't lie. The moral of the story is literally to lie, cheat, steal and murder... regrettably that's not too far off for how most people gain retarded amounts of success

What if it was just a story to teach children to look after the cat? It may seem like a lazy, useless fluff ball but its actually a really smart and useful tool for killing pests, say around a mill.. The extra story is just fluff to entertain the young.

Puss in Boots's moral is that you have to be clever and work smarter not harder so will accomplish the greatest goals. The cat may be interpreted as a figure of metaphor describing your own hidden potential.
