Yes. 5 kittens die in episode 2. They all die of natural causes.
First kitten dies at 24:46 and then a funeral is held and the kitten is shown quite a bit until 27:41.
The last 4 kittens die at 34:13. It us a quick flash for only a handful of seconds.

In S4:E1 Dwight kills one of Angela's cats off-screen by shutting it in a freezer. The repercussions and motivations for this are discussed in depth.

Ahhh!!! If you’re a cat person once it gets to the scene where he gets out of the tub and the older man is asleep on the toilet - cover your eyes and ears for about 3 minutes.

S03E03 - A cat is killed right at the start of the episode when a microwave accidentally falls on it. You don't see the impact but you see the cat bleeding and twitching under the microwave so fairly graphic too.

The game features wild cats called ocelots that can be tamed. Both wild and tame ocelots can die, but like dogs, their deaths can be prevented.

A cat named Jaspers is already dead once the story starts. Dave accidentally sends a katana through a crow, killing it. A cat named Frigglish (Jaspers from another timeline) accidentally gets smashed by a book. Bec Noir, half human half dog, gets his arm chopped off and punched into the ground. (Does not die, though.)

Stanley, the cat is found mutilated in the air duct and has his neck snapped by Tommy Tilden, out of mercy. It is not a hallucination.

In episode 1 they introduce the cat, then off it at the very last scene. TLDR of the last scene, Kid that started the street fight snitches on Vi and the gang. Head bad guy says plans have moved up and has Henchman 1 show him a potion that gives creatures super strength and demonizes them. Then they chuck the cat in with a rat that got fed the potion. Cat dies. If you're sensitive, I'd just read this summary and then skip the entire last scene.

(SPOILERS!!!)
At one point, the player is given the option to cut open a cat. It's not extremely graphic since it's pixel art, but blood is shown and multiple dialogue boxes describe the cat in distress. Whether or not the player decides to do this has no major impact on the story, and the room can be avoided all together.

Mike Flanagan has confirmed via Twitter that what happens to Pluto in episode three is a hallucination; the cat is okay.

Edited to add: the hallucination happens 37 minutes into episode three. Skip forward about a minute or so and you should be fine.

There’s also—hallucinated—violence towards another cat 48 minutes into episode four. Again, if you skip forward a minute, you should be fine.

The videos don't show the actual deaths, but it's clear what's about to happen which can be troubling for some people. These are the parts in each episode I would recommend skipping (I managed to get through by muting these sections and only watching the bottom part of the screen with subtitles to know when it was safe to look). The parts between asterisks are the most intense.

Skips:
Episode 1
*6:11-8:12* Beginning of video is shown, actions are described
*10:25-11:00* Sounds heard, video described
*12:00-13:00* Stills shown
14:00-14:35
*16:55-17:30* Second video shown
18:00-18:20
19:03-19:40
23:57-24:39 Video is described
27:43-28:27
46:40-47
*53:34-55:41*
57-57:20

Episode 2:
*3:53-6:16* Murder video discussed, described
19:40-19:54
35:38-37:07

Episode 3:
1:18-1:34
20:09-20:32
20:45-21:39

In S1E11, *that* part of “A Dream of a Thousand Cats” is shown on-screen. For those who are unfamiliar with the comics… (SPOILERS) (TW: cat death, animal cruelty, VERY upsetting…) In a 3D animated sequence, an entire litter of kittens are taken from their mom, stuffed in a bag and tossed into a lake.

Skip from 0:05:00 until 0:06:10 to avoid this sequence.

A dead cat is seen in a fridge. The cat later returns as a zombie and attacks two men. One of the men throws the zombie cat at a wall and it dies (again). We see an obviously fake cat with some gore on it, which is then re-animated once again.

The action is not shown on-screen, but the aftermath is-- in Paris Hilton's scrapbook, multiple pets are shown to have committed various acts of suicide. There is at least one cat among them. (also in a more realistic art style than usual.)

All of the animals the soldiers are shown shooting are dogs, and those are all killed off-screen, except or one that is shown bleeding after it is shot once--the scene isn't gratuitous, and the dog later dies off-screen. While there are cats that are shown as alive and outside in some scenes, they are never shown being shot. There is a scene later on in the episode where the corpses of the area's animals, including cats, are dumped in a grave and buried in cement. I am phobic of cats dying, and I managed to sit through the scene.
