*spoiler* May tries to call Miss Kitty to comfort her but she hisses. So May throws the ashtray and you hear a thud. Then you can see the cats body and some blood. Eventually she regrets her decision and freezes the cat. Later in the movie they show the cat in the freezer but looks fake. No sounds.

The guy was literally asleep when May came up and started touching his hand and placing it on her face. I don’t think this would be considered sexual assault, it wasn’t really sexual, but it’s still worth noting. Also the woman May knows from work does come on to her pretty strong.

medical needles can briefly be seen on a table in the animal hospital, never zoomed in on or used though.
sewing needles are used throughout, especially towards the end of the movie (around 1 hour and 20 minutes in there is a sewing montage)

There is a part where a guy is eating Jujubes (the candy) the chewing is brief. I can’t remember other specific instances, but I have a feeling there are more parts where people chew while eating food.

People seem torn on this one. If you consider her eye as part of her body, she is extremely self conscious about it and goes to great lengths to hide it. Nowhere does it specifically say she has BD, though, but I’d say yes.

BD: “A mental illness involving obsessive focus on a perceived flaw in appearance.”

May is autistic coded and consistently called a freak, weirdo, and laughed at. There are some disabled children who are called mutiple disability slurs by the daycare receptionist.
