Unfortunately, the movie is not inspired by real life but the name Puss in Boots comes from a fairytale by Giovanni Straparola about a mother who, in her last days, gives her only three possessions to her three sons, the youngest one getting a cat who continues to provide good fortune to the son.
Charles Perault retold the story with a different moral where Puss manipulates an ogre to change himself into a rat which he eats up so that his master receives all the fortune belonging to the ogre.
