UNE VIE DE CHAT is a French animated children's film with English dialogue about a pet cat who accompanies a cat burglar at night and helps both the burglar and a police detective foil a plot to steal a priceless artifact from the Louvre. The film was classified 'PG' for infrequent mild violence and language.

The BBFC's Guidelines at 'U' allow 'Mild violence only'. The film includes a fight on the top of Notre Dame de Paris between the burglar and a gangster. During the fight a punch is seen in slow motion which causes a tooth and a single drop of blood to fly from the a man's mouth. Another fight scene sees a woman being throttled on top of a tall crane, but the woman escapes by kneeing her attacker in the crotch and performing a double ear clap. These scenes of violence exceed the allowance at 'U', but can be accommodated at 'PG' where Guidelines state 'Moderate violence, without detail, may be allowed, if justified by its context (for example, history, comedy or fantasy)'.

The film also includes a single use of the word 'bitch'. In one scene villains are locked in a cellar and, before breaking the door down, a gangster is heard saying, "That's enough you bitch". In this case the language is spoken by the central villain, not a character younger children are likely to identify with, and it is not clearly directed at any one individual. Guidelines at 'PG' allow 'Mild bad language only' and, in the manner and context in which the bad language is used, the term sits within the 'PG' allowance in this feature. The villain also uses discriminatory terms 'moron' or 'morons' on three occasions when addressing his henchmen.
