The acclaimed French animated film is getting the Blu-ray treatment in October.

In an early announcement to retailers, New Video Group is preparing 'A Cat in Paris' for Blu-ray on October 9.

The Academy Award-nominated 'A Cat in Paris' is a beautifully hand-drawn caper set in the shadow-drenched alleyways of Paris. Dino is a cat that leads a double life. By day he lives with Zoe, a little girl whose mother is a detective in the Parisian police force. But at night Dino sneaks out the window to work with Nico a slinky cat burglar with a big heart, whose fluid movements are poetry in motion as he evades captors and slips and swishes from rooftop to rooftop across the Paris skyline. 'A Cat in Paris' is a delightful animated adventure perfect for both adults and children a witty and stylish "animated noir" with a jazzy soundtrack featuring Billie Holiday and a thrilling climax on top of Notre Dame cathedral.
