There is a storyline of one of the characters who tells that they were SA as a child, it’s not a big part of the plot, it’s just an explanation of one of her decisions

In season 6 a character says a cat is going to get hit by a car and Jack laughs like it’s funny and then just leaves. There is no resolution on the cats future.

No, but a main character does die as the result of a home fire, and the fire scene is very realistic.

Veteran PTSD comes up several times, along with associated insomnia, flashbacks, substance use and other related difficulties. It is handled, imo, sensitively and well.

i cant remember which episode exactly (i think it's around early s2) but during the pearson's court case to adopt randall, the judge explains to them in private that he thinks randall should be raised in a black household. during this speech he tells them about when a "a white man called me a [n word]" yes, he does say the actual word. not sure why the majority here is no

A main character is shown developing Alzheimer's around season 5, and in season 6 the other characters navigate the illness. The person with the disease is treated with respect and dignity the entire time. As someone whose loved one died of this disease, I really appreciated the compassionate way they depicted it.
