Opening June 1 in select locations, A Cat in Paris is one of the two GKIDS-distributed foreign films to have won a Best Animated Feature nomination over Tintin--partially because the Academy's old guy voters are confused and fearful of whatever soul-stealing technology Tintin employed, but also because A Cat in Paris is supposed to be a beautifully-crafted fun little film.

The plot involves a cat who by day lives with a police inspector investigating the murder of her husband, by night assists a home-robbing cat burglar, giving us a glimpse of both sides of the law, and another example of how cats are allegiance-less assholes who cannot be trusted. Here's the trailer for the film. You will especially like it if you appreciate the art style "something I imagine being in Starbucks."
