** For Zoe, being unable to talk is quite a handicap when your mother isn't paying attention to her, a thief [[spoiler: saves her and is mistaken for her kidnapper while her actual nanny is her kidnapper and takes her to Costa's place while the thief is arrested]]. Small wonder that her first word in the film is [[spoiler: "MAMA!"]]

* EtTuBrute: Averted when Jeanne finds out that her cat is helping a burglar, but played straight when Zoe sees



* EvilDetectingDog: Cat in this case. Dino knows who is a threat to Zoe and who is a friend.



* HeelFaceTurn: Nico wasn't a ''bad'' guy per se in the beginning, but he did rob houses and museums without any scruples, and his first question is why a group of men, a girl, and [[spoiler: a woman]] are in his house. When he sees Zoe is in trouble, however, and that Dino knows her, he switches his motivation to saving her from Costa.



* HeKnowsTooMuch: This is initially why Costa's gang try to kidnap Zoe, since she accidentally listened on their heist plan and [[spoiler: saw her nanny was TheMole]]. Later on the plan changes to IHaveYourWife.

''A Cat in Paris'' (French: ''Une Vie de Chat'') is a 2010 traditionally animated film. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.

Zoe, a young girl, has no idea that her beloved cat Dino sneaks out every night to play accomplice to a ClassyCatBurglar named Nico, and neither does her detective mother, Jeanne. But when a notorious gangster rears his head in the city, these unlikely characters must find a way to stop his plot and gain friendship along the way.

Originally in French it received an English dub with Creator/MarciaGayHarden as Jeanne, Creator/StevenBlum as Nico, Creator/JBBlanc as Costa and Creator/AnjelicaHuston as Claudine.
